Vera 2.0 – Nerf Edition :)


She’s finally finished, folks! As with many of my creations, this was built over a functioning nerf recon body. There are many differences if you go to fine details, but the “look and feel” have been pretty well preserved. I’m not sure anyone has the wallet to build a CNC’ed version of this, but feel free to prove me wrong, lol. I hope you all approve and will look forward to 3.0 when my Dad is ready to tackle another one of these beauties ๐Ÿ™‚

Just to give the proper credit to a very talented builder, the images we worked from are of an airsoft replica called “Alice” made by a UK resident named “Joe F” who goes by JoaTrash. His metal version is something to behold and I hope you’ll have a look:

Vera Vera Close to finished!


20121015-201007.jpg

Just a quick photo of the Nerf Vera custom. I just have to cement a few pieces and paint that riser for the scope ๐Ÿ™‚

Let me know what you think, I’ll have the final photos done in a day or two!


Further progress on Vera! Started on The Demon Blade from AT


I worked on a few projects with Dad this weekend, both being ones that I can’t wait to see finished. I’ll add a few photos of the progress and expect more progress soon! (They have to be done for Halloween!)

As always, thanks for visiting and sharing! ๐Ÿ™‚

A few new things


It’s been a busy week with a lot of rain here in Florida. ย Not the best combo, but I make the most of the dry time I do have. ย  Here’s a few photos I hope you’ll enjoy until the next big update ๐Ÿ™‚ย

NERF Pulse Rifle Complete


Happy Wednesday everyone! I just wanted to share a couple of the final photos for the converted NERF stampede. I think it came out pretty convincing, but I’ll let you all be the real judges ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for following the build and stay tuned for more cool stuff!

Recon Pistol conversion


20120330-125716.jpg

This came out looking pretty cool. I’m looking into making a cocking handle so the top slide can be fixed in place. It looks silly when pushed forward and the scope ends up in the wrong place ๐Ÿ™‚


“Vera” Callahan Fullbore Autolock NERF custom complete!


Finished up the last few bits on Vera and I think she would be recognized at a convention or something Firefly related ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope you guys approve of how the gun came out!

(The magazine is non-functional, but I like how it came out – thanks for the assistance and blood-letting, Dad!)

Project updates 7-28-11


A Smattering of stuff from the past week. Sorry a lot of them are phone photos, folks, but I don’t bring out the heavy photo weapons when it’s 120% humidity ๐Ÿ™‚

There a lot of things in the works, so I promise there will be some neat-o things to see soon. Until then, thank you all so much for the support and commission requests. I am truly honored to have such great people around me.

Enjoy the photos and don’t forget to tell a friend…or a movie producer. ๐Ÿ˜‰
