Pump action Helios using sink drain thin plumbing. I used a second drain tube to cut the threaded end off for the slide since it nests the smaller end. I also used some of the rest of the second tube to fill the empty shell of a bigshock for the vertical grip. 7/16 poplar dowel ziptied between the stock priming rod and the pump grip.

So far it works like a charm and almost returns itself already. Some chapstick in the pump slide maybe or a small extension spring added externally if the internal one can't be upgraded would solve that.

I have yet to open it and put a [k26] in it since it's really pretty good stock plus I bought it to use with my little brother and nephews.

I was impressed with how well the sizing of the pipe matched the muzzle of the Helios as it was really my only option on materials at the moment. It was asking to be made at 3 am with the scraps in my friends garage. IMG_20180331_230527.jpg IMG_20180331_231552.jpg IMG_20180331_231121.jpg IMG_20180331_231520.jpg IMG_20180331_231306.jpg

~~This blaster needs no introduction~~

Maybe...

Anyways, this is the finished product of my painted and modded nerf Stryfe.
This blaster has been painted in a scorched look and Ive added the worker Kriss Vector kit to it.

Pretty darn cool. If I say so myself.

Ive added an expanded battery door to the blaster so the batteries stay in the tray...

Ive added the door so the Ultrafire 18650 5000mah l-ion batteries would fit.
Nails were used to make the positive sides of the batteries to touch the contacts.

Hi all,

Our antipodean weather warmed up enough for me to get some paint down on this beast at long last... and it's finished. Well, as much as I feel like finishing it anyway...

P5YO85w.jpg

Being that it's an upgrade blaster, I kinda wanted something I can run  around with without freaking people out too much, but I'm not sure if I  didn't overdo it again :/

mWvn0H7.jpg

To be honest - this has been my least favourite blaster to paint so far. Too fiddly, too many parts, too many difficult nooks and crannies to mask - it was a nightmare. And once again, I'm having real problems with  the Rustoleum 2X Matt Aluminium - I swear, nothing wants to stick to  this stuff, so as a result I didn't go too fancy with the paintwork. Had  to be done though, as the metallic orange needed a shiny silver undercoat to really pop, so that worked at least. I just didn't want to risk masking over the orange and having it come off on the tape like the Hammershot debacle from last year...

d0hkedV.jpg

The most fun I had was installing the OMW upgrades. It was an old blaster to begin with, and as such its performance had  deteriorated badly, so the new spring, plunger and boltsled have it firing twice as far as it was, and without the front gun attached it's firing 3-400% better, depending on the darts I use. It's a lot of fun to shoot now!

Aaaaanyhoo - thanks for looking - I hope you like it.

This has been three years in the making. I present the Longshot Fleet.

 

IMG_6666.jpg

 

Two NIC style Longshots. One is 18 KG and the other is 20.5 KG. Both are equipped with metal Worker internals and SCAR barrels. They shoot really fucking far at 180 to 210 fps.

 

IMG_6660_1.jpg

 

IMG_6658_1.jpg

 

One Superstock / Ultrastock Longshot. This one has the Jet Blasters Omni Kit installed in it and it has an 8 KG OMW spring. It shoots at about 125 to 150 fps.

 

IMG_6657_1.jpg

 

IMG_6655.jpg

 

The next three are HvZ Longshots. They all shoot at about 100 fps for optimal accuracy with Koosh and ACC darts in the stock breech. I chose to stick with the stock breech for feeding reliability. 

 

IMG_6654.jpg

 

The next four are elite powered Longshots. This can be accomplished by simply removing the air restrictors. 

 

IMG_6661.jpg

 

The last three are simply bone stock and are meant for awfuls rounds or for future builds.

this is Thunder the loser in my storm line of blasters it is a range master extreme that has a gray paint and primer base coat was hydro dipped in krylon short cuts purple and black and then has hand painted lightning using model paint
the symbols under thunder mean thunder in Katakana Japanese and in the upper left corner of the gun (left being towards the barrel) is my signature, ネコ (neko) which means cat in Katakana Japanese (i did both in Katakana cause it made the symbols easier to paint)

here is how it looked while drying (some of the paint flaked off)

Here's my first attempt at swirl hydrographics painting, and I think it looks great.  Unfortunately, the cheap plastic and poor engineering in the blaster I chose is so pathetic that it's far beyond moddable or even usable (the catch doesn't work more than half the time.)  Apologies for blurry image quality.

Ive disappeared for a while and have more to share.
This is my recon mk2 that I used a cool spray paint hydrodip method to accomplish the paintjob.
I call it the -Apollo 3-
No internal mods. It works fine for me, and Id think I would mess up the ar anyways. 049DE59C-36FC-4B07-A359-39BA84766492.jpeg

Hi guys, 

 

I'm new to Nerf modding and brand new to this forum. This is my auto Stryfe, it's my first flywheel mod ever. I decided to kinda go all out and make it automatic. It's got a Worker canted cage, flywheels, and auto kit, with Fang motors. I run a 2s lipo and I put a voltmeter under the jam door which kinda doubles as a neon when it's closed. The rev trigger is a 15A microswitch from OutOfDarts, and I used 18 gauge wire throughout. It's got a jase3d battery door and extended magwell, a translucent blue stryfe parts set from BiggzNZ, and a Fang angled foregrip. 

 

Overall I'm very happy with how this turned out, and I'll definitely be doing more flywheel mods in the future. I haven't mastered paint jobs yet, so I'm not sure if I'm going to paint this build. But if you have any ideas/suggestions I'm definitely open to them. Thanks!

May I introduce to you, the Corsair; a WWII-era navy pilot sidearm, named after the Vought F4U Corsair aeroplane.

VnzJILo.jpg

This blaster employs an experimental technique for the oxidizing of the paint as well as my usual corrosion techniques. It's achieved by leaving all of the salt used for the rust in place, applying more salt over the metal coat, and then spraying a light coat of white before the top primary is applied. The top coat is applied by spraying predominantly from a single direction (similar to the water droplet effect technique), in this case, from the top down. This allows the salt to act as a rough mask, allowing the white to show through the blue around the salted areas.

I had no idea if this would work or not, but I think I can mark the experiment a success!

Thanks for looking, and I hope you found something in this you can take away and apply to your own work.

Peace :)
