My First Video Tutorial: Scout Mod

I finally uploaded my little tutorial video on how I modified my nerf scout. This was basically at someones request or else I probably wouldn't have done it.
There are a lot of other scout mod videos out there, like Lord Drac's that are already easily understandable, but who knows, maybe someone will like mine more.

Project Who: Alpha Meson Blaster - Part 2

Well, it's been about a few weeks since I first mentioned the Alpha Meson Blaster project from Dr.Who.
I am pleased to tell you that I have made some progress since then.
So without further ado, here is said progress.

First I took the blaster apart. I want this to be a functioning blaster when I'm finished so I felt it was important to get an inside glimpse so i don't cut through anything vital. Luckily, there was nothing in the way of where I was goin to do the chop chop.

New Logo For Neo Creations!

I spent some time and used the great design knowledge bestowed upon me by 2 semesters at Salt Lake Community College, and combined them with my natural creativity to finalize the official Neo Creations NC logo!
I'd love to get some opinions on what you guys think. I obviously love my logo, and love is blind, so I may be missing something.
Here is a clean picture of it for you to critique.

Thanks for your time and opinions.

Stark Rayven Mad!

I've finally finished it! And much to my pleasant surprise, my usual steam punk style worked out pretty well. With a little more splash of color than I usually put in, I feel like it gained the perfect amount of colorful accent to make it work.
This will be up on eBay probably by the weekend so stay tuned!

My New Work Space! Finally!!!

Today is an exciting day for me! Why?! Because I have finally reclaimed a section of the office space I have for the sole purpose of modding and storing my overly massive Nerf collection!
It is really hard to explain how awesome this is in words so I will do little more than show you just what I mean.

Top Shelf: 3 older nerf blasters followed by a watergun, 2 nerf reactors, and 2 more super soakers.
Second Shelf: Tommy 20, Tek 10, Tommy 12, 3 Dart guns, 2 super soakers, 2 fireflies.
Third Shelf: 2 scouts, 2 strike fires, 5 nitefinders, 2 vigilons, 4 mavericks.
Bottom Shelf: Vulcan, 2 Rapid fires, 1 double shot, 1 hawk, 2 hunters.
Ground: 2 longstrikes, 2 recons, 1 raider, 1 longshot, 1 nitron.

On top of the Piano: 8 Tek 6, 1 Rogue, 1 3-shot thing, 1 manta, 75 vulcan shells, and a random assortment of squirtguns.

On the desk: 1 half done rayven, 1 finished Maverick, 1 finished hornet, 1 bin of assorted attachments, 1 bin of assorted clips. (and then the previously spoken of ground assortment)

So now you see all the space I have! Which makes me happier than the fact I have an obsessively large amount of guns which basically overfill all the space I have now created!
Now if only I had a heated garage in which I could paint all my creations then I would be in the biz-nass.

As always, thanks for watching.
I hope you enjoyed this blog post.

My Maverick for sale!

So this is just a quick post update.
Today I put my uber cool awesome snaptastic custom Nerf Maverick on eBay for anyone interested!
This is the link ---> BUY THIS GUN!!!
It is auction style, no reserve, and with a Buy it now set at $39.99
I'd love to see this go to a new home, as well as I could use a few extra bucks in my nerf modding pocket, as I spent my last $40 nerfing dollars on the awesome in the previous blog post.
Here's a pic of the Maverick in case you forgot it, and can't scroll down the page to view my first post.

You know you want to buy it. And it being no reserve means you may get it for a bit less than what I'd normally expect to sell it for. Hurry quick, however, as I have it for sale locally.

Gotta love classifieds

Today I had the fortunate fortune of landing me quite the mother load.
For a mere $40 I got a good sized lot of nerf guns, but here's the thing. After a closer inspection it turns out that most, if not all of them have at least light mods already done to them. This is both a good thing and a bad thing though, as there is quite a bit of nasty nasty hot gluing that I need to work through to open up these guns so I can clean them up for eventual painting. I also have to fix the firefly and the longshot because something was botched.
The firefly doesn't prime, and the longshot won't pull back far enough for the clip to get inside. So someone has given me both a blessing and a curse in one. If it wasn't for the low price, I wouldn't have considered buying pre-modded guns. My main point for this is the big one. I don't know, until I open each gun up, what they've taken out, and what they messed with. 
Anyway, here is what $40 worth of lightly modded guns look like. Enjoy.

Ravin' with my Rayven

Hello there!
Today I would like to update you a little on another one of my current projects.
Yes, the Alpha Meson Blaster will happen. No, I don't know when it will be finished cause I have been too occupied by having a life to make it to a hardware store during waking hours, and Wal-mart doesn't carry what I need.
My current project comes in light of a joyous occasion in which I found a Nerf Rayven CS-18 at my local Target store, and found out it wasn't worth the money to just turn it around on eBay for the measly $10 profit i might get.
So I am tearing it down, removing some of the locks (cause I know you kids love it) and painting it with all the badassery my genius can come up with. (A.K.A. probably another steam punk paintjob, but they're awesome like that and you know it!)
Here's a few pics of my progress so far.

How many people do you know that will go to ridiculous extents, tearing down the gun, taping off parts, etc... for the sake of a paint job? Well you know of one now. Why do I do this? Because, I am committed to doing the best paint jobs I can, both inside and out! I made the mistake of painting my first Recon on the outside only, and you could see all the nasty orange in the clip area because I was inexperienced. Well, that's not gonna happen, especially on a gun such as this.
Look for updates here or on my deviantart and be sure to keep watching as I will be posting up the eBay auction once it is finished. You know you want it, so keep in touch.
That is all, and now I go back to the thing called life as I wait for the weather to warm up so I can spray my gun.
Thanks for watching.

Project Who: Alpha Meson Blaster

I have a pretty challenging commission ahead of me now.
I have been asked to take this
and turn it into this

In case you don't recognize the gun, it is the Alpha Meson Blaster from Dr.Who.
This isn't a project that hasn't been done by others in the past, so I have a decent amount of source material to look at for the build, but it will be the first project in which I will have to custom fabricate a number of parts.
If you couldn't tell by looking at the handles, the Alpha Meson Blaster was, in fact, made from a Nerf Scout IX-3. Obviously it's been heavily modified, and chances are that it won't be a functional blaster once it's done. Unless the function you want is picking up all the hot convention chics with your Alpha Meson Blaster, and making all of your former friends jealous. (former as in they'll probably kill you to get it)
The scouts came in a pack of two, so that means I will in fact be making two of these!
The first is already spoken for, but the second can be had for a mear $85 (+shipping and handling)
I'll post up as the project goes along so you can get the inside scoop on the build. So keep watching!

Welcome to Neo Creations!

Hello all you Nerfers out there. My name is Ben Allred and this is Neo Creations. I customize Nerf blasters, as well as Buzz Bee blasters, squirt guns, and anything else I might just get my hands on. I am mostly versed, and very well indeed, in steam punk paint jobs, but plan to fill this blog with other creations such as video game and movie inspired customization. I will also be doing my best to get a hold of new guns as they come out, and giving you all a look as I test them out, paint them all snazzy looking, and modifying them in the simplest ways I know how; all the while passing on this useful and hopefully appealing information.

But enough with the worded introduction.

I feel it wouldn't be wholly proper to introduce myself without examples of my work. So here you go.

So there you go. A great look at what has been and what is to come. If you would like to check out the rest of my mods feel free to head over to my deviantart where you can find all sorts of cool stuff, along with prices if you feel so inclined to commission me for one of these fine styled blasters.

And on one last note, I am currently working on getting an actual website up and running as well. So keep  lookout in the near future.
