The Half And Half Nerf Grenade

05 May 2008 - 08:56 PM

Well hell, I get sick for a week, had time to tinker on a grenade idea, and now that I can type without getting the spins, people go and make their own grenades! Now all the older members are gonna get sick of grenades. Well this one is simple to do, all you gotta do is get these things.

foldable frizzbe

at least eight tagger darts(more is encouraged)

a key ring

and a knex connector part(honestly I don't know what you call it.)


the whole thing should look like this...

how you make it is get to get your tagger darts, pull the head off, and cut off the stem and shove eight or more of them in one side of the folded up frizzbe like so...
Posted Image

then get at least three sticks of the left over foam from when you ripped the head off and cut the foam into peices equal to the size of the dart head seen here...
Posted Image

Once you got that, get your knex connector and put the key ring through the hole. Now, here is the tricky part, get your other end of the knex, and use it as a clamp for the three loops of the frizzbe in center of where the whole thing opens...

if done correctly, it should hold well. Attach it to yourself however you see fit, and it shouldn't open up on you as you duck, dodge, run, and hide.(I tested this myself) Pull the knex off and be sure to throw it with the "clam" opening facing away from you. The foam will fly at anyone at point blank range while the tagger heads will bounce around at futher distances. I tested this in my living room, and a few of tagger heads fly and bounce to the other end of my dinning room, so it should get all the corners of a dorm room. I don't live in a dorm room noir do I go to frequent nerf wars, so I haven't fully tested this, but I do expect it to preform better than any of the current grenades I've read on.

I highly encourage that you try filling the grenade entirly full of the tagger head for a better effect. Please, go out, make one yourself, see the results for yourself, tell me what you think. Any thoughts on this?

Nightfinder's Shell End Cosmetic Modd(work In Progress)

15 April 2008 - 07:42 PM

HERE IT IS!! After asking one too many questions around here, I thought I'd give a little something back to everyone. I got a NightFinder for myself and I never liked how a certain end part looked, so I decided to fix that with this little modd.

You will need: NightFinder(duh)
Dremel tool
A stick of JB Stick Weild (found some in a AutoParts store) or mighty putty will work (same shit)

Frist thing's frist, you use the thin cutting disk to get rid of the unwanted part.
Posted Image

Once done, I then cut a bit of the JB putty and place it where the rest of it will sit.
Posted Image

Now you get the needed amount of putty to form the wall, and sculpt the desired shape.

Also keep in mind that you gotta watch it as it drys, if you don't it will flop around and your shape will mess up. Luckly it hardens pretty fast.
Posted Image
After it hardens and it stops flopping around when you move it, repeat the same steps for the other half of the shell. MAKE SURE that when you form the shape, it doesn't interfer with any parts or keep it from being able to be put back together!
the two halfs should fit together like so....

and there you have it, a basic shell modifycation.

I'm sorry if the pictures aren't clear enough and I'm not sure how it looks if you paint it, I'm still working on it. If anyone want's to try it, let me know how it turns out :D

How To Protect Your Paintjob Questions

13 April 2008 - 08:34 PM

I was going over my painted maverick, and played with the slider a bit, and I notice a bit of paint rubbing off, and I've see quite a few people with the same problem. So I'm asking anyone with alot of experince(namely Direct Threat or Forsaken Angel) to tell the rest of us how they keep their paint from rubbing while using their gun....

What's Forbidden To Post As Far As Modding Goes?

07 April 2008 - 09:06 PM

Hello there, I've tried reading all I can here(which is alot) and I was wondering as to what kinds of modding can you NOT post on the haven here? I know the code of conduct, but I don't see any rules applying to what modifications your forbidden to post here. I've been working on a neddler dart, and that's all I'm gonna say about that! Stop me from continuing the info if it's wrong to do so....
