Nerf Sledgefire - Boba Fett Colors
« on: Sep 15, 2014, 07:50 PM »
Hey everyone, I'm a newbie to the forums but just painted for my first time after lurking the forums for a bit. Check out my Boba Fett themed blaster (used Nerf Sledgefire)



(I need to buy a new helmet)

I would say that you need to take off all the decals and maybe add something like a longer barrel or a scope
but other than that I think it looks fine and the paint looks cool!

Yeah, you have to really modify those Nerf guns. That particular one, I'd say you're safe for now, because I haven't seen too many of them around. But, when a toy gun, or a Nerf guns starts becoming popular and everyone seems to have one...then you have to make a lot of adjustments to them. But above all, you have to sand down all the lettering. Take off the Nerf signs, the labels, the instructions...everything.

Thanks for the tips.  I didn't even think about it that far.  My whole intention with the gun was just to make sure my colors were right. I ordered an armor kit and didn't want to mess up the colors since it was my first time painting.

Some questions for you guys-
Is it too late to remove the decals - can I just sand them with a dremel and repaint or will it look odd?
Is the concern about the nerf guns that other members will have them and they'll look too common?

Thanks!

you can remove it now it will look find after you repaint it, sand paper will work or anything really!! the big thing with nerf stuff is, its not star wars era, that why you have to really mod it to look the part!!!
