Looking for some measurements...

08 April 2015 - 09:13 AM

Firefly owner(s):

Could you measure the full diameter of the rotating barrel/drum?

Could you measure the full diameter of the rotating barrel/drum?

Also, could you measure the height of the shell from the bottom rail just bellow the drum (nowhere near the handle/grip), to the top rail above the drum?


Vinyl Dye base coat + Acrylic detailing?

27 March 2015 - 08:57 AM

My acrylics are not adhering at all to my vinyl dye basecoat. I don't plan on getting enamels. Is there something I should do between vinyl dye basecoat and acrylic handpaints to get them to stick?

Mechanics that make Rotating Barrels work

15 March 2015 - 10:29 AM

I've learned a fair amount about the mechanics that make Nerf drums rotate just by opening up my Maverick and Barricade, but I want to know more.

I'm sure there's a name for this type of mechanical system, with the two "gears" with "teeth" and sliding "tooth" that initiates the rotation, but I don't know what is it. Can someone enlighten me?

I want to make sure I'm clear on which parts of this mechanical system must be stationary, which parts must be free to rotate, which must be free to forward-backward movement in the assembly, etc.

If you can shed some light I'd really appreciate it.

Enamel vs Acrylic appearance

11 March 2015 - 05:10 PM

I have done some Googling (unlike some recent posters), and not found sufficient answers to this.

Does anyone find that Enamels come out shinier and glossy, while Acrylics often look flat?

Or does all that effect all depend on the type of clear coating applied?

(I'm planning on picking up a full stock of detailing paints tomorrow, and would rather go all Acrylic, or all Enamel.)

Blog/Resource Link sticky?

09 March 2015 - 10:56 AM

So I know a few people on this site have personal Nerf blogs where they post works-in-progress and guides etc, and thought it might be helpful to have that kinda of info in a sticky.

The Nerf Modifications Directory is an ARCHIVE-type sticky, the great resource for the best of the best info,

but this separate one could be for CURRENT, LIVE, ACTIVELY updating blogs that users may find useful. As posts on those sites prove helpful, or better, than current links in the Nerf Modifications Directory or other resources stickys), they can be added to those archive directorys.
