my first attempt at a bigger model: vortex proton. tried to give it a steampunk feel with some aesthetic additions and lots of copper paint dry-brushing :)

I did have some issues with getting the trigger to work again reassembled. I removed 2 of the 3 trigger locks which paid off but it still operates very rigid… so if anyone has experience with this I’d appreciate some tips.

ok, now this i can call a mod for once. not just some sanding but also wham bam: a permanent scope to the side (perfect for gangsta’ style shooting :p)might fiddle with LEDs or laserlights in the future + getting to work on a bigger model :)

another Nerf repaint and this time I sanded down much more from the sides, put a couple of (air)holes in it… so it can… erh, shoot faster?learned a couple of things from this which I’ll keep in mind once I get to work on bigger models.

left is before alteration, right is after.First time I took one of these apart to repaint. I think the result is rather ok for a starter. had some paint issues though. spray cans and me aren’t the best of friends.I applied two layers of white primer, a base coating of grey, added the fluorescent touches and the weathered effect (drybrush with black acrylics… needs work :p) and finally a final translucent veneer (also spray can). I left about an hour in between layers but the paint was still soft (tears and fingerprints at the low pressure).any suggestions to resolve this are welcome, imma google it as well ;)ps: the logo and warning texts were removed with a dremel to give it a slightly more realistic feel
