Title: Anansi's WIP Longstrike-Based Carbine
Post by: Anansi on Nov 09, 2016, 01:12 PM
Hey, vode.

So I'm beginning the long journey in building out my besbe, starting with my weapon. I had this Nerf Longstrike that I painted up for an old costume and I figure it'll make a nice base.

I know the stance on Nerf around here, so I'm slowly working on making some heavy modifications to this body.
(http://i.imgur.com/qnDXhZv.jpg)

After slicing away a few more sections(including the top rail) I'm planning on adding cooling fins and a beam focuser to the barrel, a side-loaded magazine, scope, and a few more greebles. I'm also going to fill in the stock either with wood or eva foam textured to look like wood.

All right, this is moving along. Naturally, while looking it over and finding new pieces to add, I decided to make a few revisions:

I shortened the barrel and added this shroud. But I'm not sure if I want a longer barrel peeking out or not. I also decided to shorten the entire body of the rifle by cutting out the portion that held the magazine well and top ejection port. I'll reinforce the seam with the removed material on the inside. That ejection port screen can now be moved to the side, opposite of the new side-mounted magazine well (not pictured). I also flipped and trimmed the stock to make the entire weapon a bit more compact.

I'm glad I saved the internals because with a few cuts and some spacing, I was able to come up with a decent scope.

This weekend I'm going greeble hunting at the local thrift shop.

Another good place to look for greebs is Lowes or Home Depot, their plumbing section.

Su'cuy! So, after my hunt for greebles, I came back with some good ones. Vor'e STRAKAZulu for the tip. I found many good things at Lowes. So here we go:

After measuring and remeasuring, it was time to cut the body down.
(http://i.imgur.com/5Jrb6kG.jpg)

Thankfully, everything lined up pretty well.
(http://i.imgur.com/rLP3Gla.jpg)

In order to attach the two cut halves, I braced the inside with strips of heavy plastic from a Sterilite shoe box and my good friend contact cement.
(http://i.imgur.com/1RQQ1Nk.jpg)

I can look over my planned layout to make sure everything still fits where I want it to.
(http://i.imgur.com/9ods8wE.jpg?1)

Now it's time to sand and prep for bondo.
(http://i.imgur.com/eRB6Nn3.jpg)
Title: Re: Anansi's WIP Longstrike-Based Carbine
Post by: Anansi on Nov 14, 2016, 01:46 AM
Ok, so one more update this weekend.

I used Bondo for the very first time. It's a bit intimidating and I'm sure I didn't apply it perfectly but the way I see it, those divots and clumps are actually battle damage and carbon scoring, especially if painted right.

(http://i.imgur.com/y9tdv92.jpg)

Fast forward a bit and I got all of the greebles attached. On this side, we have that left over screen from the ejection port and half a mint tin behind it. Under the barrel is a tripod tilt handle and up front there's a space for a flashlight mount.
(http://i.imgur.com/76KaCKP.jpg?2)

On the other side, we have the other half of the tin, a cabinet hinge up front and say...what's this orange rectangle?
(http://i.imgur.com/vD5XZ1a.jpg)

This looks like it might fit.
(http://i.imgur.com/pexGaR0.jpg)

That's right, it's the side mounted magazine well! I have magnets attached to hold the mag in place and it's easy to pull and lock in. I have a second mag to fix up and they'll go on the belt.
(http://i.imgur.com/tvF1Jeo.jpg)

That's all for this weekend. Next week, I'll work on the shoulder stock. Until then, Ret'urcye mhi and good hunting.

Hit it up with some primer, might help in finding things you want to fix once it's all a uniform color.

Title: Re: Anansi's WIP Longstrike-Based Carbine
Post by: Anansi on Nov 21, 2016, 02:06 PM
I'm back with another update.

Initially, my plan for the buttstock was to shave it down, pad out the middle and face them with wood panels. But I thought to myself, "Why take the easy route?"
So, on this week's trip to Lowes, I headed over to the wood cutting section and found a nice, thick piece of scrap wood and proceeded to recreate the original stock from wood...mostly. I started with the outline.
(http://i.imgur.com/NfxuUn6.jpg)

And I started carefully cutting to shape.
(http://i.imgur.com/6PAzKSq.jpg)

I almost left if flush with the top of the carbine but that's a lot of material and a lot of weight.
(http://i.imgur.com/J63P0sm.jpg)

So I continued cutting and shaping.
(http://i.imgur.com/uaaVlV4.jpg?1)

And here's a comparison to the Nerf stock.
(http://i.imgur.com/aO0uPQg.jpg)

There's still a LOT more shaping and sanding to go but I think it'll enhance the look much more than a glued and bondo'ed plastic buttstock. Additionally, I ditched the cobbled together scope and replaced it with an inexpensive real rifle scope; ($7 at Wal-Mart). That's all I have for now. I'd have more but I was distracted by my new Slicer pad project. 'Til next time, vode.

Post by: Yolah Hyperion on Nov 21, 2016, 02:28 PM
You may send the discarded scope this way...I will ensure it is...properly disposed of  :P

It looks really really good though!!

Will you be staining the stock??
Title: Re: Anansi's WIP Longstrike-Based Carbine
Post by: Anansi on Nov 21, 2016, 02:33 PM
I'll definitely stain it and I may carve or woodburn something into it as well. As for the scope, I'm sorry but that was repurposed for the datapad WIP.

 :laugh: Just kidding about the scope, woodburning something would make it pretty unique. Just be sure it wasn't to much of an earthy design if you do.
Title: Re: Anansi's WIP Longstrike-Based Carbine
Post by: Anansi on Nov 27, 2016, 08:27 PM
Back again. This update is a light on images because most of my work was on carving and shaping the buttstock a bit more. However, I did decide that the handgrip needed a little customization, so I cut out the main section, leaving the internal structure in place:

(http://i.imgur.com/7sDgTYy.jpg)

and then I cut out new grips to be fastened with Chicago screws. I also added a knob to one panel, cut off the tabbed portion of the accessory rail (while leaving the main section for the scope), and finally attached the aforementioned scope. Still need to figure out whether to attach a small flashlight or an even smaller blue led penlight.

(http://i.imgur.com/updIXAV.jpg)

Quick question: What would be a good Mandalorian quote to burn into the side of the stock?

QUICK DETOUR:
I haven't had time of late to get back to my carbine but my riduur did give me a sneak preview for Christmas morning:

(http://i.imgur.com/heejI5e.jpg)

Twin Westar 35's! The vendor sanded and primed them but there's still a lot of work to be done on these, namely, the triggers are almost as thick as the trigger guards. I've got to figure out a way to thin them out cleanly. Any advice would be appreciated. Also, is anyone aware of a Westar company logo?
Title: Re: Anansi's WIP Longstrike-Based Carbine
Post by: Yolah Hyperion on Dec 09, 2016, 02:22 PM
If you could get a file in the trigger area perhaps that would work, maybe a dremel.

No idea on a westar logo unfortunately  ???
Title: Re: Anansi's WIP Longstrike-Based Carbine
Post by: Bariikas Talgal on Dec 11, 2016, 12:36 PM
I think those'll look great! I checked for you and there is no canon logo, or even Legends. Sorry to say!
Title: Re: Anansi's WIP Longstrike-Based Carbine
Post by: Anansi on Dec 11, 2016, 08:34 PM
Vor'e for the research Bariikas. I'll come up with something else. In the meantime...

I sanded the handgrips and put a nice stain on them:
(http://i.imgur.com/4G4Fou8.jpg)

And I figured out what design I'll put on the stock. Before I do any woodburning, I wanted to make sure it fit and I'll test this image on a piece of scrap wood.
(http://i.imgur.com/Vyewevo.jpg?1)

I bondoed the screw holes and a few other spots and then I hit it with this paint/primer. (Side note: people who switch the caps on primers at the store should be kicked in the knees. Hard)  I almost want to keep the main body this color after some more sanding. I'm not sure though. I might go with black and then use this as an accent.

Title: Re: Anansi's WIP Longstrike-Based Carbine
Post by: Anansi on Dec 19, 2016, 01:50 AM
Today was my first day trying out woodburning. I did a quick test run on scrap wood and then dove right in.

(http://i.imgur.com/c9ZvAbP.jpg)

Got the outline in place and then filled it in

(http://i.imgur.com/UWUAIlO.jpg)

and added a few hash marks on the other side

(http://i.imgur.com/RZmMOzY.jpg)

Since this was a piece of plank I grabbed from the scrap pile at Lowes, it wasn't the best medium for woodburning. The rings are crazy hard and don't burn quite as well so I'd put a little more pressure to keep it even, then I'd hit a soft part and dive in deeper. I imagine it will take practice and a better wood choice to get it right. Either way, it looks good enough to me. Next step: staining.

Title: Re: Anansi's WIP Longstrike-Based Carbine
Post by: Anansi on Jan 02, 2017, 10:38 AM
It's 2017 and I'm still plugging away at this. Here's the updates:

I finally got around to staining the stock and I learned a few things. 1. Wood glue does indeed stain well. 2. Wood stain will even stain a woodburned area.
(http://i.imgur.com/q0BtwrZ.jpg)
I stained and black-washed it and restored a little of the black to the burned portions.
(http://i.imgur.com/BrkB9TT.jpg)
This is the glued side (done to level out some of the wood imperfections). The glue really gives depth to the stain that makes me wish I'd glued both sides.

I also black-washed the grips and added a few greebles to the right side...
(http://i.imgur.com/rfQrO58.jpg)

and to the left.
(http://i.imgur.com/3eLwMO5.jpg)
(http://i.imgur.com/TXfiipk.jpg)

Once I have an opportunity to bondo and sand a few more spots, I think this will be ready for paint! In other news, Santa the Wookie brought me two Westar 35's on Life Day and I've started working on cleaning up the flashing and such. And then this happened:
(http://i.imgur.com/WEpWCOk.jpg)
Looks like I hit an air pocket. I assume bondo will fix that right up but any advice is greatly appreciated.
Title: Re: Anansi's WIP Longstrike-Based Carbine
Post by: Famine on Jan 04, 2017, 08:58 PM
Bondo or spot filler will take care of that. :) Depending on how shallow it is, you can use baby powder mixed with superglue. Good luck!
Title: Re: Anansi's WIP Longstrike-Based Carbine
Post by: Anansi on Jan 28, 2017, 07:47 PM
Su cuy! I finally have a few little updates. The weather grew too cold for bondo so I ordered a pound of Apoxie Sculpt. And now that I have some time on my hands, I can finally resume working.

I had to rid my carbine of some of those tell-tale Nerf designs, like the vented trigger and the notched trigger guard. (I'd already reshaped the trigger it but the holes still betrayed it. A few plugs of sculpt fixes that.
(http://i.imgur.com/NawifoM.jpg)

Then, I took aim at the triangle adorned handgrip. I dropped a layer over top and set up some lines. I'll give them a little more shape once the apoxie sets.
(http://i.imgur.com/Kn3Quv7.jpg)

I also filled in the spot where the original stock met with the handgrip and filled in a few gaps that resulted from overgrinding when I made the new wooden grips.
(http://i.imgur.com/dDIgJ6K.jpg)

Finally, I added a few little embellishments, smoothed the top of the accessory rail and filled in a few more holes. Then I finished the other two magazines.
(http://i.imgur.com/IHUo5RP.jpg)

Once everything sets and I do a little (or lot) more sanding, I think it'll finally be ready to paint.

UPDATE: Since I can't work on the blaster body until the apoxie cures, I decided to add a butt plate to the stock. I had some stylish bits laying around and once I measured them and heated them up so they'd contour and added a d-ring and...well I may have warped on end of the plate. Let's just call it damage from trying to loosen an overheated thermocoupling.

Title: Re: Anansi's WIP Longstrike-Based Carbine
Post by: Anansi on Jan 29, 2017, 06:39 PM
All right, today the apoxie is pretty much set and it was time to clean it up. No pictures of that but I decided my Westar 35s needed a little personal touch. So, meet Bev Edee (Fang) and Kyr'am Mureyca (Death Kiss):
(http://i.imgur.com/IpKwcz2.jpg)

Once that was done, it's finally time to hit everything with paint, starting with metallic:

Title: Re: Anansi's WIP Longstrike-Based Carbine
Post by: Anansi on Feb 12, 2017, 09:47 PM
All right, the weather is a little friendlier so I can resume painting. There were a couple of rough spots on the carbine so after some sanding and cleanup it was time for another round of paint. Krylon's metallic is ok but it the glittery bits make it look like cheap metal, so I hit it and the 35s with some Tamiya Silver Leaf, which has a lot smoother finish.
(http://i.imgur.com/oxxuCW1.jpg)

A few coats and then, following the advice (kinda sorta) of Syko Voss in another post, I hit 'em with 2 coats of clear. Once that dried for a few hours, it was time for the first round of masks and black, part of Krylon's camo series. It's a nice deep matte.

(http://i.imgur.com/hACGuAX.jpg)

Next up, color.

I might be too picky, but the red blaster looks more glossy than the blue one. You're weathering probably will take care of it. Just something to keep in mind. :)
Title: Re: Anansi's WIP Longstrike-Based Carbine
Post by: Anansi on Feb 17, 2017, 11:20 AM
It is glossier. The red I had on hand was a gloss enamel. In it's current state, it has a nice contrast against the matte black but I'm going to hit everything with 220 - 600 grit to beat it down before giving them a black and brown wash.
Title: Re: Anansi's WIP Longstrike-Based Carbine

Post by: Anansi on Feb 27, 2017, 12:17 PM
As much as it pained me to do this, it was time to make these weapons look "well-loved". As I said before, I took to them with sand papers from 220 to 600 and here's the result:

(http://i.imgur.com/V4j70Iu.jpg)

(http://i.imgur.com/xI88wfg.jpg)

I'm not viciously scuffing the paint on the carbine because if there's one I'd take care of really well, it'd be my weapon. I will however, hit it with a bit of drybrushing before black (and brown) washing it.

Then it was time for the 35s. This hurt the most.

These are a little more worn because they are my parents' side arms. Well, the "damage" is done. It's time to get them dirty.
Title: Re: Anansi's WIP Longstrike-Based Carbine
Post by: Anansi on Mar 06, 2017, 12:47 PM
So last weekend, I scuffed up the beautiful paint jobs on my weapons and this weekend I made them actually look used.

I know we call it "blackwash" but if you only use black paint, you're missing out. Grime and dirt are not just one uniform color. What I have here is Black, Charcoal, Brown Iron Oxide and Autumn Brown as well as a little silver to add in a few more scuffs.

(http://i.imgur.com/Y1JPRYD.jpg)

Hit any "exposed metal" with more brown to give the impression of rust...

(http://i.imgur.com/Ivq4GI0.jpg)

or dirt

(http://i.imgur.com/K95afql.jpg)

And before you know it, everything looks like it's been to Nal Hutta and back

(http://i.imgur.com/08ArNaN.jpg)

Added a few more shades of brown: Brown Velvet and Burnt Umber

(http://i.imgur.com/mRNCMf2.jpg)

I also added a sling to the carbine but I think I'll probably pull the pad off as it tends to get in the way.

(http://i.imgur.com/k8RKo5a.jpg)

And that's it. I think I've taken these weapons as far as I can. But, if you have an suggestions or input, don't hold back.

Normally, I don't care for Westar 35 blasters, but the weathering on yours is very well done.

The carbine is also very well done.  The only negative thing, and it's just my aesthetic opinion, is the stock.  It's clearly a 2x6.  It could use a lot more shape to it, especially right behind the pistol grip.  I mean, if you were ever stranded on Kamino, you could use it as a paddle to get to Tipoca City.  😉

Title: Re: Anansi's WIP Longstrike-Based Carbine
Post by: Anansi on Mar 14, 2017, 07:29 PM
The funny thing about the stock is that it's a cut down version of the base stock for the Longstrike. It's hard to believe but it's also the same width as well. Further, the wood was a pain in the shebs to work with as the darker rings seem to be much more dense than the rest of the wood. Still, it adds a nice weight to the whole thing, plus it's removable. It's also great for bashing heads (or locks) and paddling up the creek.

Just a really minor update. I stared at the stock of my carbine for a good long time and while I was mostly ok with it, I decided to make it look less like a block of wood and more like a "proper" stock.
(http://i.imgur.com/eNhIXiym.jpg)

Now I just need to re-stain it and then I think I will feel comfortable permanently attaching it to the carbine.
