Title: My Nerf Jetpack -WIP-
Post by: Dralkote on Apr 18, 2011, 05:29 PM
Ok so my Nerf Disk Launcher came in the mail today, and I'm so excited!  ;D

I'll be moding this into my own NERF JETPACK!  :D

I'll also be donating the guns, disks and some other stuff to Mando Mercs at the next get together here in NC. ^_^

So tell what you guys think as I mod this baby.

It definitely has some potential.  My problem has always been the bright colors.  So when I get something like this, the first think I do is primer it.  Then I truly give it a blank canvas.

That's exactly what I'm going to do, but thanks for the info. ^_^

I'll be painting the yellow parts dark green after priming it, to match my armor.  8)


Do you guys think I should paint the black pieces silver?
I'm kinda stuck because I do like the black.

I agree Ewok, I find it kind of puts me off (the bright colors I mean) so I have to primer it to move on  :D

Hard so say at this point about the silver thought...

I know right?
The silver makes it looks metallic, but the black makes it looked distinguished.
I can't choose...   ???

Needs more opinions plz! ^^;

Lol, thanks.
I haven't gotten much done on it but I did sand off the nerf logo. (with some help)
I don't mind you using the idea, but I would love to see how yours turns out. ;)

I'm using one of these for my son's pack! I'll post some pics when it's finished for you.
