Hey everyone, very very new here and to nerf modding!
I am a cosplayer in my off time and I am in serious need of some serious nerf modding/homemade advice. I am having the hardest time trying to mod existing nerf guns to fight my needs. I am trying to build a working replica of Ember Celica (From RWBY) that will fire a single dart. Hand loaded through the front like a traditional pistol/blaster.
The issue I am having is that I need to build the pistol INTO the gauntlet, here is a reference: http://vignette3.wik...=20131016012713
I tried using the Nerf N-Strike and while it worked to a certain degree, it was just too bulky. I also tried the Nerf Jolt and cut it up and modded it but I can get the trigger to sit without some serious work.
I need the trigger to be available by the thumb and the cocking mechanism available through the top of the gauntlet. I know it sounds odd, maybe I can scan some of my mock up drawings.
Does anyone have a tutorial on a VERY BASIC spring loaded nerf pistol/gun? I went across the net and only came across some of the bigger guns and blasters or tutorials (mostly on YouTube) that were just not very informative.
I would love some help and advice. I wouldn't mind Skyping if necessary or even helping with a commission. I need to get this done before San Diego Comic Con this year! It will be the first working Ember Celica mod out there and I am really looking forward to making it. The ONLY thing that is holding me back is the design for the straight pistol.
