This is Aeshna, a Firefly with Buzz Bee Berserker center barrel (basically a 4B) internals. The plunger is linked to the slide, so working the slide fills the air tank. Barrel is .50 caliber polycarbonate. I glued cardstock to the bottom of the dart holders so they can hold short darts/stefans/slugs. The trigger releases the air valve.

The latest from my workshop is a customised Nerf Retaliator, featuring a modified longstrike barrel attachment, a Raider stock, and Orange Mod Works Solid stage 1 & 2 internals. I call it the Ice Tiger.

Paints used include Rustoleum flat black, flat red primer, Dulux stainless steel, Tamiya turquoise and bright purple, and titanium silver for the dry-brushing. The black parts also got a couple of coats of Testors flat clear for protection. Much salt was sacrificed in the creation of the rust - totally worth it. I should add too, that I haven't done any weathering, other than the wash I gave the rusted metal before the secondary coats went on. I'm not sure if it actually needs it...

Post-apocalyptic puddle-junk Hammershot

Features burnt copper, stripped aluminium and rough-cast titanium construction - at one time, this might have had some sort of paintjob, but it's hard to tell...

JdcX5QI.jpg

This was an experiment in what a Nerf blaster might look like if you stripped the paint off it leaving bare metal. Unfortunately, the Orange paint failed to hold onto the silver, and the masking tape pulled almost all of it off leaving a mostly silver blaster - not ideal... The burnt copper was added as an afterthought, mainly to give some separation between the different body-parts.

Not my first mod, but one of my best. Hand detailing with silver paint, stock motors and a rewire. I also replaced the stock switch with a mechanical one. I plan to add LEDs later, I dubbed it: "something wicked"IMG_20171216_181838787.jpg IMG_20171216_181829092.jpg IMG_20171216_181805331.jpg IMG_20171216_181813811.jpg IMG_20171216_181834794.jpg

This is my scorched Nerf stryfe with worker parts to look like a Scar PDW.
The motors were replaced with the rapidstrike motors, and it still runs on the stock battery tray and AAs.

Greetings Nerfhaven! Happy new year and all that jazz!

My first project for 2018 is this little fellow - a minimised Longstrike that looks like a face-melting happy-face face-melter.

iOASZXJ.jpg

Similar process to my other blasters: disassembly, sanding, black primer, silver drybrush, masking, rust red and salt, silver base coat, de-salt, liquid mask, yellow coat,  de-masking, grip masking, brown coat, light brown drybrush, de-mask,  hand brushed detailing, reassembly, grime coat/weathering. Boom. You get the idea...

HRIykI8.jpg

Pretty happy with how this came out - up close, the yellow has left a nice little ridge where the chipping effect came through brilliantly, and overall the colours contrast against one another nicely. I might possibly look at something to plug the holes in the back of the grip, but knowing me, I'll probably get distracted by the next project and forget about it...

On to the next! Thanks for looking :)

Finally got around to chrono-ing my 19kg (Worker Stampede 9kg and NerfTurf 10kg retaliator springs) exPT Retaliator/Reconciliator with a 20cm Artifact breech. It's a beast and I'm in the process of fashioning a sleeper breech to absolutely maximize velocity. This was the model I loaned out at APOC. Uses a 100ml syringe tube, which is the same inner diameter as a stock LS plunger tube, but no tapering. 

The blue retaliator is a 14kg exPT (Worker Stampede 9kg and a stock Sentinel 5kg springs) that I made for DVTests, with another Artifact breech (20cm barrel). Hits somewhere in the order of 190 fps with SCS and #8 slugs.

Hello, all! This is my modified stockade, which may be a first, the way its been modded.image.jpg
It has an integrated modulus rev trigger, and the stock switch (to rev the motors) is now used as a safety switch, switching it on allows the user to rev, switched off, you cant rev.
It does still house the pancake motors (bleh) because I havent found a way to get to them yet.

that is very cool and interesting on how you integrated the modulus rev trigger while still keeping the stock switch and using it as a safety

Ive modded my tri-strike to make it pump action. Id say the paint job is Distant Stars.
This is the two halves of the shells drying.
DC9AA981-25E8-48C5-A70F-3FB28CC781AA.jpeg
The bolt sled was modified with spacers, they were just hammered down into the slot where the bolt used to go. The spacers were cut down, and since they werent tapped all the way through, I re-tapped them.270F6021-318B-4D9F-A0EA-945C1054827A.jpeg
And the finished product.

The Tri-Strike name has paint surrounding it to make it look like a comet, of sorts.

And heres the pump action grip, made out of plexiglass so you can see the paint job underneath.

My painted DoubleStrike. I decided to keep the handle part unpainted and leave the pho wrap around the handle because I dont mind having it there. Ive also added a hot glue spring spacer, and it shoots harder more now than it did before. It actually hurts to get shot with it.

It was supposed to be the Elite XD stryfe but I never liked the look of it.

Here are the internals with stock motors and a rewire that I did a while ago.

And heres the internals now with an LED wired to the jam door switch.

Hi again!

February already! Thought it might be time to do another - this time a Roughcut 2x4 - Puddlejunk Edition.

KRVxxDo.jpg

This was the first time I'd tried a gradient paintjob - it came out really well, but there's so much other stuff going on in there it's easy to miss...

Thanks for looking ;)

~Update~

The winter forest Rayven is now modded to run on Ultrafire batteries
image.jpg
It uses two Ultrafire 18650 rechargeable Li-ion 3.7v 4200mah batteries.
image.jpg
Since the batteries are bigger, there is a bit of a bend in the battery tray, but it keeps them in place.
image.jpg
A hole was made to make room for two contacts on either side for the batteries to touch and deliver that power.
image.jpg
Adding those batteries gives the blaster a great boost, and the darts actually leave the barrel.
It adds a shorter rev time and more power to the darts leaving the barrel.


You all probably hate me now for using those batteries, right?

A re-painted modulus
Stock motors and a rewire
And I removed the handle so now you can actually aim down it.

And Ive added this DIY iron sight.
This time I decided to use some acrylic paint to give the white texture.

Double springed nite finder. Hurts like hell when shot with. Spring scrapped from wii remote gun. My brother helped me a lot with it. Picture file size too large to upload. To see the final product please go to my previous post involving my first mod with a screw driver. My brother stole the gun due to the power. He is too powerful I have to take from him lol.

I finally found a fully intact second-hand Spectre that I could scavenge the suppressor from to add to my Rayven Electrodeth. After 2+ years, it is at last complete!

xIkOmUG.jpg

(Note that there's a couple of extra bits scavenged from other blasters just for the photo...)

Replicating a paintjob that I did over 2 years ago was an interesting experiment, but it seems to have worked out okay - I even still have the matt metallic aluminium enamel that I originally used for the drybrushing...

Titan Tank frankensteined into some of a Barricade. Maverick cylinder absolver, bigbadow barrel for stockdarts with heads and some rockets, recon barrel for streamlines, the original barricade front barreled in mega, and a hopper for stefans or cut stock darts.

A bunch of mods for making the Dart Zone Powerball blast darts instead of rival balls.  They basically all shoot 150 fps (ish) without any spring replacement or any other performance mods.

N-strike magazines:

Katana Magazines:

Megas (muzzle load, tight fit, barrel is 3/4" CPVC, it basically sucks but hey megas)

Micro/50 cal (Muzzle load, loose fit / vacuum loading, .625" x .527" barrel material hidden by 3/4" PVC shroud for barrel plant protection).
