Blaster concept
« on: Mar 01, 2014, 05:08 PM »
I've been toying around with an idea for a blaster which looks a bit like this:



It's just the mock-up of the design done with cardboard.
The front is based on the Westar-35 blaster and the plan is to have that cover up the whole orange front bit, have it nicely moulded onto the front so it's not just slapped onto the front.
It's going to get a folding stock like the Spas-12, that means the top rail is going to get sawn off
The empty bit in the middle is going to house a hexagonal cannister, about the width of the original bulge on the sides of the frame which I'm also going to make hexagonal.
On both sides I'm thinking of putting a hunting scope like Chewbacca's bowcaster, with the scope mounts probably mounted onto the hexagonal bit.
I'm definitely giving the gun a sideways magazine, something short and wide I think and I'm going to do a load of sanding/bondo work on the body to de-nerfify it as much as I can.

So what do you all think ?

EDIT:

Oh also !
Here is another blaster I've been working on




It's based on a Luger and the Bryar pistol from the Jedi Knight series.
Don't know yet how I'm going to bring it to the real world, but I'll think of something.

I think your plan sounds solid and should turn out alright and meet CRLs if you do it just like you said. As you said, the biggest thing is to de-nerfify it as much as you possibly can. You sound well on your way, can't wait to see some progress.

The second pistol looks amazing! Based off a WWII Luger? How do youplan on building that one? Count me interested

Maybe get the Bryar pistol 3D printed in pieces, and then assemble it.
Good luck with the NERF, I've given up on using those as basis.

Printing it in parts did cross my mind, splitting it into parts will take some time but I already know it'll be worth it!

And then you make a cast of it, and sell copies :p

Brilliant >:3


I've been fiddling around in sketchup and made this :


If I did all my measurements correct then it should fit in place of the orange bit on the front.
I found someone who could print it for me so fingers crossed!

This concept is really interesting! Most people will either print off their full guns in pieces and put them together. I haven't seen anyone 3D printing custom add-ons for Nerfs. Good idea. I hope it works well. I have my eye on this for sure
