Modification and Paintjob Pictures POST PICTURES ONLY. How hard is that.

I'm finally official for this forum, so here's my first PJ made some months ago:
My first RECON
It was my first attempt to PJ a Nerf, so I've done some light weathering and detailing. Since I'm a big sci-fi fan, these Nerfs fulfil my (nerdy :*) ) fantasies of being a Space Marine, or Colonial Marine/Warrior, etc.
My first FF

Who's your daddy?! Bwahahahahaha!
And to complete the Black-n-silver set, my first MAV:

Here is my arsenal:
My TTG and double-barreled BBMM are not pictured.
This is the first iteration of my preferred primary:
It features a double coupler system, a telescoping brass barrel, intertwined Recon spring, reinforced internals, and a heavily modified NF.
It looks crappy. I need to work on it.

First my trustworthy Nerf Longshot CS-6,
Trust me, it looks much better in real life. Next my Buzz Bee Double Shot,
My Nerf Crossfire (with custom cocking handle),
with multiple speedloaders and barrels,
the bottom barrel is for fun, it does nothing.
Next my 1st generation Nerf Night Finder,
and last, and yes the leasted (nonworking) Nerf Recon CS-6,
I am planing to fix this (for the 3rd time) sometime this year, but not today. Will do write-ups if requested. These are by far not the only blasters I own, but the only ones that look descent.

Anyway, here we go:
Please forgive the poor quality pictures, all I had was my cellphone, and the lighting just wouldn't work right.
The Firefly was the second nerf gun I bought, and the first one I painted. I screwed it up and the paint came out kinda thick, the gray even cracked. But thats ok, it ended up looking kinda cool anyway, and taught me a lesson about waiting till whatever I am painting is the same temperature as the environment I am painting it in. The only real modding done to it is the Air Restrictors were removed, but I would like to mod it so the barrels spin like a Gatling gun. Perhaps being able to switch between normal mode and cosmetic, so it will still work. Would love to redo this one, and if I can ever get my hands on a cheap FF, even just the shell, I will.
The second gun I painted was my Recon, the third Nerf I bought. It has had the plunger hole plugged and the AR removed. I also modded the stock, condensing it all down to look like one piece, and cutting a hole through the pieces so the bolt of the plunger moves through them. Wouldn't mind getting a second Recon and trying a similiar but different paint scheme., would also like to try a mod to reposition the slide to the back of the weapon. It's my favorite gun performance wise. The paint job isn't inspired, just black with the original accents, a hammerred finish barrel, and some silver accents, but I wanted it to look basic.
Here you can see the stock mod, and how the plunger bolt slides through... sorry for the fuzzy quality. I wish I had had a dremmel for this, it would have turned out much cleaner, as it was I did it with wire cutters and toenail clippers, if you can believe that.
Next up was my Longshot. I see it plenty, but I love the Pulse Rifle look, and I wanted one for myself. Other than plugging the plunger hole and ar removal, the only thing else I really did was add-on a soda bottle cap to the front gun to make it look more like a shotgun, and cut the "up" clip on the front gun handle to allow it to be removable because sometimes I want it to look more like a Morita. I also used some PVC pieces I had and an ibuprofen bottle to make a secondary "loser" style barrel extension. When my new longshots arrive, I have some new things I want to try, mostly cosmetic, but I do have an interesting mod planned for the frontguns. I didn't do anything major to this one because I like the idea of a modular, multi-purpose weapon.
Then we come to my Mavericks, the first nerf guns I bought and modded, and second to the last on the paint list. I had seen them done silver and black, and I dug that concept. So I gave it a shot myself. The black one has a crazy "shimmer" texture, which is kind of cool, kind of reminds me of rough iron.
Finally, on a whim I bought a RFR from buzz bee. Silver casing, but with a hammered mettalic black barrels and accents. No real modding of any kind, though I did take an extra stock from an old entertech m-16 watergun and add it to the stock of the RFR to make it long enough to actually be useful. After painting, I really have come to love this cheap ass gun. It just has this post apoclypse vibe, so I adorned it with crap. I like the way it turned out, and I love the shell ejection. I think there must be a pretty big spread for quality with these guns, because I hear a lot of bad about them, but out of the box I was shooting my cat from across the room. (Cat has eaten like 15 darts, so it served him right ) I cut the suction cups off the darts to give it a wierd "bolt" look, I painted the shells and the tips of the darts as well, just because. I also added the sight thingy from the recon, because its utterly useless and antiquated, but it looks ok on this post apocalypse style rifle...
Before decoration. You can see the longer, thicker stock...
detail shots of the crap hanging off it...
And thats what I have done so far. I did them all in about a week. I don't LARP, but I do play roleplaying games, and these serve more as decoration for my custom gaming room than they do for shooting, though frequently during games a skirmish will break out between my friends and I.
I realize my paint jobs are pretty cliche by now, but that's fine with me, I wanted them too look either "cyberpunky" or "post-apoclyptic", and I think I achieved that.
I have a Vulcan and 2 more longshots I need to take pictures of, as soon as I do I will post them up.

After the red MAV and inspired by BritNerfMogul, I decided to do a Recon in the colour scheme of the US Colonial Marines from Aliens:

Took longer to finish than I expected. Hits seventies, but I haven't pumped it up very much. It's a fun gun.
I wish I had a heat gun to swell out the case to put the BSs actually inside but it's fine and functional for right now.

Spray painted red and black, Russian roulette mod, and pennies shoved behind the spring.
First try, no primer, and had no tools (only a screw driver, an X-acto knife, and leftover spray paint).
