#135238 Happy New Year!

Posted by Wisey on 07 January 2008 - 02:17 PM in Off Topic

Okay, who else pictured a mini version of The Infinite Shindig being unveiled to a group of scientists when you read that?

Hahaha! Well that certianly wasn't intended (I ment party for anyone who doesn't know). Although I did think of the Infinite Shindig, I didn't think of him being unvailed to scientists XD where on earth did that come from?

My plans basicly involve not failing A level's (College)(urgh.. revsion) and having fun with friends... if it's at all possible to do both... so pretty much the same as last year. Oh yeah! And to cut my hair and learn to drive...

As for the arcade machine, I have a feeling I'm missing something here. Are you talking retro stlye with one game or with like a console in it or something? Seems a strange thing to build... Although cheaper in the long run i guess XD The only arcade games I like are prolly Time Crisis and House of the Dead, but there not really proper retro arcade games. (sorry i'm babling agian)

#131623 Outtakes Of Nerf

Posted by Wisey on 07 December 2007 - 07:35 PM in General Nerf

I quite like this topic.

In a war, I once got two headshots in a row with a PowerClip at range. Still with 8 darts remaning.
Nuff said.

Also, sometimes me and my friend sit about 30-40ft from each other outside, with all the guns we own loaded, shared out equally and scattard around us. And then just shoot each other for the heck of it (this is usaly to celbrate a good day of modding/fixing or we count how many shots we get on each other (this mainly becuase this is a bit different from your average 1v1). It's fun. But quite painful when your friend has a modded BBB... 30-40ft may not be far, but this makes it; more fun, more painful, and so that we can still hit other with stock/crap guns. We don't stop till we can reach any darts from our sitting possitions.

#134385 Longshot Laser-scope

Posted by Wisey on 30 December 2007 - 05:23 AM in Modifications

I like this. It would be nice to have verious attachments for differnet things (flashlights, other guns etc.) I was thinking of how I could mount a removable NF (cut down so it's just the top of the gun, and something comes up out of the LS rail and fires it).

Yeah, I thought that was the coolest part, the laser sight itself (as i'm sure many other people are going to say...) is quite useless. BUT I may use the tutorial on how to put a external switch onto a hold button laser pen you linked to, and replace the "laser" on an NF with it that you linked to. Thanks =]

The one thing I will say for this is that it's modular. Eventually, I'd like to cannibalize the "night time green light rail attachment" accessory simply for it's rail, and affix a high-powered flashlight onto it, and then fit it with a 9V terminal so that it can utilize the same switch. That's my favorite part anyways.

#132328 Lilith, The Nerf Crossbow

Posted by Wisey on 13 December 2007 - 06:14 PM in Modifications

Good mod, looks very nice. I'm liking the neatness of the breach.

Just another reason why I want a xbow...

It's very pretty ^^

P.S. ~ FA24, one word: Fez.


#131338 Secret Shot 1 Mod

Posted by Wisey on 03 December 2007 - 06:16 PM in Modifications

Very nice write up.

So nice infact, that thanks to it (and someone posting in this topic from a bit back) that I've just purchased two off ebay ($5 + $35 shipping (I live in the UK, it is about 20 in total, therefore 10 for each SS)).

I'm going to do this mod to one (that is, if I can find a spring... but I'll do the rest), and something sligtly different to the other one.

I use too many brackets...

#131443 Tommy Twenty

Posted by Wisey on 05 December 2007 - 04:01 AM in General Nerf

Not hot.

The Tommy Twenty is a pretty bad gun as far as i've read (most Nerfers here think it sucks) And my experiance with electric guns is always this: they suck.

I know you were thinking though, it's fully automatic, it's got a large ammo capacity and you don't ever have to pump or anything. But, there is very little you can do to mod it... as far as I know all you can do is wrap elastic bands around the wheels that "throw" the darts.

If I were you, I'd spend my money elsewere.

But if you like the gun i'd say it's probably quite fun, if a little pants. Check out FireBox.com they have to Tommy Twenty on there somewhere, and have customer videos (and sometimes there own videos) of products they sell.

#131450 Tommy Twenty

Posted by Wisey on 05 December 2007 - 12:54 PM in General Nerf

a.) The Tommy 20 is semi auto (needed to tell Wisey that)

Oops, thought it was. Well, either way, it's not that good...

An artist at work.

I need to get me some plumbers goop and a dremel!

#143885 Music

Posted by Wisey on 04 March 2008 - 06:46 PM in Off Topic

Anyone else listen too?:

The Letters Organize
Alexisonfire (pre-Crisis)
At The Drive-in
From First To Last (althouth their new song sounds shit)

I could go on...

#132588 Music

Posted by Wisey on 15 December 2007 - 08:46 PM in Off Topic

YAY, I hate rap, you got the right idea there.

Dude, you hate everything.

I do believe in one thing...MCR sucks live.

They do. Although there very first album is pretty damn good. Ironicly there support (when I saw them) was better. But of course, it was Thursday. =D

I'm not liking the the whole genre focused thing here.

Anyone got a Last.fm account?


I scrobble mainly what I listen to on my iPod but I havn't recently because my laptop is dead.

#143992 Music

Posted by Wisey on 05 March 2008 - 01:59 PM in Off Topic

Wisey!, good on you, Thursday's a great band. Not a big fan of their new stuff, it's not really what I'd expect from Thursday. I can't stop listening to Ian Curtis and Autobiography of a Nation, two of my favorite songs.

Linkin Park's only good music was some off Meteora(?) and everything before that. Collision Course sent them downhill.

Wahey! Yup. By their new stuff I'm guessing you mean A City by The Light Divided, in which case i'd have to agree with you, from what I've heard it's okay, but not to great. Autobiography of a Nation is pretty awesome, I love the simple punch bass line at the start. As for Ian Curtis, I didn't recognise the title so I looked to see if I have it on CD or on my iPod and after a quick look on wiki I don't have anything from Waiting. Just the EP's and full lengths after. I will have to d/l a few songs and get the album if I like 'em enough.
You seen them live? If you havn't, they're one of the best live bands I've ever seen. My vocabulary isn't good enough to discribe just how aweomse Jet Black New Year is live. I've seen them twice but have yet to see them headline... but I will, at some point...

As for Linkin Park, I'd have to agree with you aswell. Collision Course sucks..

#135402 +bow

Posted by Wisey on 09 January 2008 - 06:46 PM in Homemades

I think I love you.

I've just had a quick troll though this topic (I'd only read the first two pages before) and I havn't seen much about the intergration rail? Any chance of photos of a gun mounted to it? Or are you planning to make something specific? Or am I a dumbass and missed something here?

Me and Trojan Nerf will be making them when we finish our first batch for ourselves. We will have 3 guys working in assembly line fashion at a machine shop, so, as soon as supplies are bought, we will be fine, I can estimate 80 dollars if I did the math right.

Good luck. You probably going to need it. If CS dosn't make them and you make a good prototype, then put me on your waiting list.

I'm currently doing research into CNC Routers, which are much more affordable ($3,000 to $6,000 for the models I'm looking at) and will be safer to use with polycarbonate than laser cutting systems would.
I should be able to make more of these some time in the next 6 months. Just have to save up for the tool and get it setup.

I think my old secondary (high) school had something similar to this that the used for cutting wood, although I don't really have a clue. Does that basicly mean that with one of these CNC Routers you can (in layman's terms) put in a sheet of polycarbonate and it would cut out all the parts and drill all the holes and make it almost ready for assembly (apart from cutting of the rods for the stock, barrel, plunger tube and anything else not made from polycarbonate). At a comletely random guess this would cut the time to make one down by like 2/3's? Or (it's much more likely that) I'm just talking out talking out of my arse?

#135086 Guide To Barrel Material

Posted by Wisey on 05 January 2008 - 07:28 PM in Modifications

I'm just wondering if Copper pipe makes a good barrel material? And how it compares to brass? Because I have a s**t load of it lying around (lazy plumbers, I got some pipe cutters out of what they left though).

I know, I know, it's been asked before, but! Before you shoot me down saying it all depends on your stefans; I have alot of different sizes of them (5 maybe) some are very hard to push into Alimunium, Stock barrels and Copper, others are too slim for anthing other than NF barrels. So asuming I have some stefans that will fit either pipe/tube which would be better? And why?

Thanks in advance.

#135163 Guide To Barrel Material

Posted by Wisey on 06 January 2008 - 05:23 PM in Modifications

My darts do fit the copper I was just kinda thinking about friction, because the copper defantly dosn't feel as smooth as alimminum (or brass, I should imagen..). I might try finding some brass and then doing the same length barrel replacment to two of the same gun. I've just got two Secret Shot's, I might try it on them.

Thanks agian.

#131712 New Nerf Blaster From Hasbro

Posted by Wisey on 08 December 2007 - 07:28 PM in News

I'm going to jump on the bandwagon here and speculate some more.

Now when comparing it to a LS I think it's not going to have as much potential, simply because it's smaller and has a sliding cocker (haha, ahem..).

But, when you look at it, the internals of a LS in a way are quite close to fitting inside the shell of the recon. If you cut off the entire frount barrel, and the stock, the Recon pistol and the remains of your LS would be similar lenghts. IMO. So, I dicided to make a picture to see if I could guess anything else (I know it's already been done, but not with the internals of an LS or with my sexy red lines).

Posted Image

Now, the last picture of the internals is defantly not the right scale (it's also inverted, for those of you who hadn't noticed) compared to the other ones. But, as you can see, even if the internals of the LS could be cut down in a similar way, you wouldn't be able to cock it, becuase the cocking bit of the LS is right at the back, so the Recon must have a very different way of cocking. Maybe the plunger rod has a catch on it, like most other spring guns (the most obvious example being the NF).

Most people have touch on one or more of three things about the Recon:
- It's not gonna be as good as the LS.
- It's a clipped pistol "ZOMG!!1".
- It looks cool.

I for one agree with all of them. Although, all of you that said anything about performance compared it to the LS. Maybe if we compare it to a different gun. One more in terms of size (of the functioning body of the Recon, not the extras) then, I think it's gonna be pretty f**king cool.

Hum, i've just said what everone else has said, nevermind...

#133624 Modification and Paintjob Pictures

Posted by Wisey on 24 December 2007 - 08:23 AM in Modifications

This is my first paintjob, and I think I did fairly well.

Posted Image

Thats a pretty f**king cool paintjob. How did you do it?

This is my first post in this topic, and I'd just thought I'd share some of my friends paintjobs (I can never be arsed to paint guns, just mod them. Plus, I'm rubbish at painting).

I think the NF is the best by far out of them all, but the Fireflys pretty cool too. As for mods;
*Longshot - intergrated side arm, AR's removed, NF spring and a locked stock.
*Firefly - AR's removed
*Brown NF - AR's removed, very nice spring replacement (bought modded from ebay..)
*Gray/Black/Red/Green NF - AR's removed, laser sight partical removed, half a gate bolt spring replacement and banding

EDIT: I've just noticed the darts in the NF XD need to take them out before the get miss-shaped.

#135231 Modification and Paintjob Pictures

Posted by Wisey on 07 January 2008 - 11:08 AM in Modifications

Nope, only one works for me and thats the one that looks like a Carbine LS with an intergrated Mav. If it is that, it looks really cool. Good job. Fix the rest of the images...
