Anyone can march onto the field of battle with a 3ft monster rifle. For this baby, only pros need apply 😉
I made this for my niece who asked for her own custom from Uncle Brian. I hope she’ll approve, hehe
Have a great weekend and I hope to see some of you in Orlando tomorrow at the Maker’s Faire.
And have a Happy Memorial Day!
Hello and welcome to my humble blog, new visitors 🙂
I wanted to say thanks to Kotaku.com and TheAwesomer.com for showing my custom NERF guns some love! I hope you guys will check back for some of the new stuff I’m working on.
Thanks for the visit and I’ll see you back here soon! 🙂
Just a quick rundown of a few things that are in the works and also just about done. Thanks for having a look!
This week has been a mixed bag weather-wise. Days of rain have lead into 50 degree evenings which is not the norm here in Florida. Humid and chilly is also not ideal for painting, unfortunately, so I’ve had to be creative with the drying process. This amounts to cardboard boxes damp-rid to eat up any moisture floating around the shop. It’s not ideal, but you do what works until the weather is more cooperative 🙂
With a secret project in full-swing, I haven’t had time to do as much with the other blasters, but rest assured that after Friday we will be back in full swing.
Here’s a few photos in the meantime, stay tuned for more!
These Rotator X8’s from Lanard are really popular right now so it’s giving me a chance to play around with more added bits and pieces. This model is apparently electrically powered, but I’m not sure exactly how it works. Looks ok though, yeah? 🙂
Thanks for the visit and here’s a few photos of stuff you’ll see more of soon!
All finished with the new brass technique and I’m quite satisfied. The photos can’t really show the depth in the paint, but it’s pretty snazzy in person. This is the same style that I did for the SP longshot. I hope you guys like the look!
So here’s a few photos of some of the things getting finished up in preparation for a top-secret project that starts in a few days. It’s going to keep me pretty focused for about a week, but I promise to post anything else that hits the workbench in the meantime. There are a lot of cool things planned, so definitely check back soon for details!
Thanks for visiting and talk to ya later! 🙂
This was just an idea I decided to try out. Feel free to let me know if you like the look – also potentially with green lighting instead of the white/blue in the photo. Thanks!
Just wanted to show of the new name plates that Christopher Glas (http://hypercats.net) made for me. They came out awesome and a little paintwork made them blend right in to the longshot 🙂
Just a few photos from tonight’s work. This one is starting to look nice and broken-in 🙂
The others are just a few other projects that also got some attention. More on those soon!
Added an extended barrel for accuracy, coupled with an early laser heating system to give almost instant steam power. To keep it streamlined, the water reservoir is hidden inside the insulated hand grip.
And it looks cool, even if all that stuff is completely untrue 🙂
The kids and I test out the modified Rayven. I get shot up. That alone is worth the view 🙂
Thanks for taking a look!
Just a smattering of new stuff for the week. There’s more, but these seemed like they would be the ones of interest to most of you folks visiting my site. Vash’s Longcolt is a side-project and will be available when it’s done 🙂
So I decided to re-do the standard cylinders that taper a bit. I intend to sleeve each barrel with a brass sleeve to seal the darts better. I’m not sure that the color will stay this way, it was just a painted shell I used as a stand-in. I hope it improves the look of the blaster. The barrels certainly added some nice weight to it of nothing else 🙂
Here’s the almost finished Nerf Vigilon with a Mass Effect inspired paintjob. I hope you guys approve 🙂
I hear that every so often, so here are a few of the upcoming steampunk revolvers (and a slide-action scout). I hope these will satisfy the folks yearning for more embellishments 🙂
Finally got the video up from a few days ago. It’s in HD so enjoy the show 🙂
Feel free to mute it for a more enjoyable viewing experience!
Here’s my latest N7 rifle, I hope you guys like it and are enjoying the new game. I can’t wait to have some time to check it out myself! Lol
Have a great weekend!
Just finished up on this maverick tonight (except for cleaning up the base of the grip!) and wanted to see what you guys thought of the colors. Thanks for taking a look and I’ll have the DSLR photos up tomorrow!
This one is just for fun, but I’ll most likely make it available if anyone likes it enough. The bottle does unscrew from the lid for transport, just FYI 🙂
This photo was from last night and shows the gun at 99% done 🙂 Yes, there’s always a little more to do, but I figured you guys would like to see what a wooden revolver might look like!
Larger photo and about 400 more here:
Here’s the suppressed combo showing in the photo, but there many other ways to load out the gun including the 18rd “glow” magazine and also a 6rd mag that just looks cool, but not really fuctional for a semi auto. I hope you guys like her and she’s a rare one that doesn’t have a home yet, if you have any interest. Thanks!
