Spy Gear Rocket Blaster Re-Barrel

Hello there everyone!
I have finally completed my very first re-barreling of a gun. I picked up a Spy Gear Rocket Blaster at the local thrift store for $2 on Friday, and the moment I saw it, I knew what had to be done.
It was one of the easiest mods I have yet to do. Just took a coupler, a length of 1/2 cpvc and some epoxy.

I opened the gun up, chopped the barrel down, and glued a coupler on. That's it!

Nerf Hailfire. What Does It Really Look Like?

So everyone,
There is news of a new series of "Elite" N-Strike blasters from Nerf. The biggest and baddest being the Nerf Hailfire. The problem is you may not really be able to tell what your seeing from the teaser video. So I took some of my artistic talent and did my best to recreate what was visible, so that you can have a better look at the new Nerf Hailfire.

The original video showed this.

And I turned it into this.

Project Who: Alpha Meson Blaster - Part 3

Hello again,
I just have a little bit of an update on progress so far, with a little bit of a write up as well.
Now the original Alpha Meson Blaster was a non-functional prop, as well as any replicas I've seen made of the blaster. This has always been something that has bugged me, as I always wanted to keep it functional; but because of the way things are set up it wouldn't be able to prime like a Nerf Scout normally does. Thus has begun my adventure to modify this one to shoot differently, while keeping as close to the look of the blaster.
I realized the only feasible way of making this functional would be to prime it from the rear. So whether or not you want to make a functional Alpha Meson Blaster yourself, or just want a rear priming scout, this is the write up for you.

First you need to drill holes through the back of the blaster. Be wary of the screw hole. Because this is the only way to secure the blaster from the back you need to keep that intact.

Not Just For Nerf

Hello there everyone,
Today I'd like to bring you all something a little different, but only slightly so. Instead of a Nerf blaster, this time it's an Air Soft M14!
My brother in law has, for some time now, wanted us to paint up one of his air soft guns. This has changed over time on exactly which one, but eventually we got a hold of one of them; an M14.
Basically we took what looked like this:

And made it look like this:

A Long Time Coming: The Nerf Longshot

Hey everyone!
Great news today, as I finally finish up the 6+ hour job of customizing my Longshot CS-6!
I am way happy this one is finished, and that it turned out so well. I'll be sad to see it go when I sell it, but that's the way this works. The money from this will help me keep doing this hobby of mine.

Anyway, without further ado, here are the pictures.

Work Of Progress: Longshot CS-6

Hello everyone,
This is just a quick progress update on another one of my projects. The Nerf Longshot CS-6
I never realized just how much gun there was until I got it apart and started spraying a base coat on the pieces to be painted. It took about 4 cans and an hour to get everything well sprayed. Now another 2 hours into it, just hand painting some details, I finally realized how much there is; as I still have a lot more to do.
