A stunt flamethrower from Ben Stiller's Hollywood satire Tropic Thunder. Cody (Danny McBride), the trigger-happy pyrotechnics expert on Damien Cockburn's (Steve Coogan) war film, brought to Cockburn's Vietnam set a flamethrower that ultimately fell into Four Leaf Tayback's (Nick Nolte) hands.
This stunt flamethrower pack is comprised of a gray rubber gas gun and tank modeled from a Muller Opladen flamethrower, spray-painted "Cody Effects," and connected with black rubber wire to green and brown military-style canvas straps with an aluminum back.
The flamethrower exhibits visible rust and some bending to the rubber from production use and age, but it remains in good overall condition.
