Fenrir's Weapon WIP... New Pics 06/18/2017
« on: Jun 08, 2014, 08:03 PM »
Been slow going lately, but was able to get a good jump on some weapons. Just need to wait for the epoxy to cure full, then comes the sanding, painting and weathering.

First: DL-44 from a Nerf Night Finder:
Body: Nerf Night Finder
Flash Hider: Stock Smart Parts Ion (paintball marker) feed neck
Heat Syncs: "Cut to length" threaded irrigation fittings
Scope: Spare Spyder (paintball marker) barrel.
Lots of epoxy.
Only the air chamber and barrel remain. All other internals have been removed. Completely non-functioning.



WESTAR-34 Blaster:
Seems like every bounty hunter has one. All of the internals have been removed. The screw holes have been filled. Again, just waiting for the epoxy to cure fully.




My son (he's 12) has a pair of these (one green, one orange) and wants to use them for his kit. Figure they won't need as much modding as he can't join "officially". All internals have been removed. Going to so quite a bit of work and fill the gap in the main body.




Now, the two beskad: Both are made of Sintra and relatively original in design.


The wonky 1/2 cross guard has been removed.

That Night finder still screams nerf to me, I'm afraid it's going to need more work to be approvable. Try removing the accessory rail along the top and the Nerf logo circle. Those are the two features that stand out the most. Loving the beskads though!

Thanks for the advice, Drako. I've started doing the new mods. Lopped off the rail and the side bumps. Covered with some thin plastic. Need to pick up a better molding medium (the epoxy I bought is merely for bonding, sucks for filling and contouring). Should have more WIP pics this weekend. Until then.

Just a carbine I've been putting together.

Started life as a Dollar Store water gun. A cheap, generic Super Soaker type.


Of course I removed the water tank and retaining ring. Lengthened the stock with a bit of Sintra. Then filled in the gaps, cracks and screw holes with yellow/grey Milliput. Still a bit of work to do on the scope (not sure how to finish it yet) and the fore grip.

The Sintra "strapping" on the stock is functional and decorative. Had problems with my epoxy not holding. It's nice and secure now. Thinking about continuing the pattern over the entire stock and making it one continuous, raised detail. As opposed to it being broken up.

Beskad. Now with paint. Going to do a leather wrap on the hilt. Then need to cobble together a sheath.



Westar-34. Painted and in need of weathering. After, comes the holster.

Honestly opinions would be very helpful in this process. I'm especially concerned with the rifle.

Personal opinion here, nothing more, but I'd look at lopping off the "scope" and maybe either getting a longish rifle scope or making one out of PVC. Your call though.

I have been struggling with what to do with the scope. Now to see if I have any PVC around.

PVC conduit works well as it already has a flared end

On your rifle, I'd look at some photos of the Rebel Endor "commando" troopers blaster rifles from ROTJ, what you got right now is fairly in line with that look so you may want to pursue that angle.

Otherwise looking good  ;)

Well, this one didn't work out. Guess the plastic was too inferior to hold up.


 So, grabbed another one of my son's broken dollar store guns and started a build on it. I have it disassembled and the internals removed. Thinking about adding the mag to the side and turn it toward the back of the gun. Need to build a new stock. But, I think this one is going to be better. A Swarzy blaster, based on a cheap toy replica of a real firearm.

Getting closer to Swarzy. What do you think?

Not bad so far, not bad at all.  Personally I can see some similarities between your weapon here and a Stormtrooper E-11, like if I squint at it it kinda looks like one.  So maybe try and draw some ideas from the E-11 design?

Once I got the picatinny rails removed, the similarities started showing. Think I'm going to forgo a stock, but definitely taking queues from the E-11 from here.

That pistol is actually coming along nicely.
