Modification and Paintjob Pictures

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.

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.

Just a barricade to elite conversion:
Scratch-built rev trigger from PVC trim pieces:
Also extended the pusher a hair to help with reliability:

Decided to dust off my account and reupload some pics as photobucket has gone bananas... Enjoy
Most of these are used on Private land during LARP events, hence the more realistic/sci fi appearance.

this is my first hydro dip ever done i did a base coat of gray paint and primer (dont remember the brand all i know is that it is great paint) and dipped it into krylon short cuts black and purple

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...
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 :/
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...
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.
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.
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.
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.
The next four are elite powered Longshots. This can be accomplished by simply removing the air restrictors.
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.
Do not aim at eyes or face

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.

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!

this is Riptide the first blaster in a potential line of water/beach themed blasters

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

This is my first paint job mod, plus my first attempt at including led's. It's a modulus with an OFP cage, containment crew flywheels and MTB Neo-Rhino 130's. It's rewired and runs on a 3s lipo. I used 3 different Rust-oleum paints; matte hammered black, metallic oil rubbed bronze, and metallic cobalt blue. I also included 3 blue led's (2 in the front and 1 under the jam door) which are powered by a 9 volt and have a led lighted switch in the carry handle. And lastly there is a green voltmeter on the back. I think it turned out very well, I'm extremely happy with it.

Semi-enclosed priming-arm pump-action Retaliator
[Retaliator body, Longstrike barrel, Scatterblast pump-grip, ø6.4mm 304 stainless steel welding rod pump-arms, AR intact, Tek-6 spring, Raider stock, "SleeperScope" fully-functional red dot sight.]
Imgur album for internal pics. (Sorry not really good enough detail to do a proper write-up yet...) Mod uses no additional screws or bolts though - it's entirely about the fit of the bent rod inside the shells.

I'm knee-deep into a Hyperfire mod at the moment, but it's slow going... I needed to do something quick and fun in the interim, and so I present:
The Nitefinder Oxidizer.
The Fallout look was not a conscious decision - it just came out that way due to the colour choice.
The corrosion is a bit different to my usual technique in that I didn't do a rust base - I was going for an oxidized aluminium appearance, so the rock salt went on over the top of the stainless steel base and then coated with a light dusting of white, more salt, then the blue on top of that.
...and it has a party trick! Before I rinsed the salt away, I added one more layer of paint - Rustoleum's glow-in-the-dark enamel spray. Interestingly, it's semi transparent with a very slight greenish tinge to it, so it doesn't affect the colour underneath at all really. And it has the added bonus of acting like a clear-coat, protecting the paint underneath - neato!
So in true Fallout style, it's irradiated too - experimentation bonus FTW!

Sorry about the double-post, but it can't really be helped...
May I introduce my latest relic, a scavenged ex-service blaster I have dubbed "The Rearranginator".
Same ol' rust technique I've done dozens of times but with an extra wash on the bare metal parts just to see what would happen; a new antique leather technique I've been playing around with; and just for fun, some hand-painted graffiti, because when you find a blaster in the post-apoc wasteland, the first thing you do is personalize it
...and some cool news - I have an exhibition of my customized Nerf collection opening next week at a little gallery called PhotonFlux here in Wellington, NZ. It'll open on the 29th of this month and run for 2 weeks. If you're down in this neck of the woods, drop on in and have a look.
