While having a Gun isn't required, it is highly suggested and the app team likes to see it, even if it is just a pistol.

Huh, ok.  Well, like I said, I'm still planning on finishing it, I'm just going to focus on other things for the moment.   I got a bit stuck on the plating to cover the holes I chopped into it, and I want to be able to give it the time it deserves.

Been three weeks and have I got an update for you =D

100% Complete: Splodeys Model I:



Here's my attachment method. I epoxied the chain on, and the latch is from a $1 lanyard from Walmart sewn into a beltloop made from my pleather.  Super simple, easy to remove if I want to, won't fall off accidentally.



100% Complete: Splodeys Model II:


And yes, they do still light up and make "sonic distractor" noises =D


100% Complete: Besbev (Henceforth known as "Noisy" because I can't music lol)



Really, really pleased with how Noisy here came out.  Again, $1 lanyard from Walmart saves the day. Also, button epoxied to the end = perfect stringholder  ;D


100% Complete: Stabby

Yup, he sure is stabby.  The "miniaturized vibro-emitter dishes" on the sides are actually chapstick ends - you know, the ones you twist to get more out.  They're actually perfect, haha!


30% Progress: Shooty

Got the plating cut out.  Got the scope glued together and the barrel parts lined up correctly. Still have to:

-install weight in hilt
-glue barrel in place
-reseal everything, screws back in place
-bondo screw holes, sand seam
-heatform plating to gun's new shape, attach
-bondo plating to integrate
-attach hanger holster (on opposite side than picture.  Am actually not left-handed, haha.)
-attach scope
-paint & weather

So with alla that said, my question for you paint-lotsa-guns types is this: when should I paint the trigger? At the end, after everything's all put back together? Separately, then protect it from the new paintjob at the end? Once in the beginning and again with the whole gun? Something else entirely? Inquiring minds want to know D:

Paint the trigger when ever you feel like painting the trigger, before, during, after, when ever.  I like the shooty thing, and the method for attaching the shooty thing to you, clever.

Wow!  I like the splodies.  I think I may just be predisposed to such things, but I still like them!

Looking good!

Tip for the splodies.... Take a DRY fine grit sanding sponge and go over the weathering a bit. Some of the damage looks like obvious brush strokes and hitting them with the sanding sponge will help get rid of the strokes and make the weathering look more realistic.  :D

Ok, so I may have to get some of those sonic distractors myself, because they look fantastic.

Late to the party, but when I mod NERF guns, I paint the trigger separately while everything is still taken apart.  And depending on the build, I paint other bits, too.  Undercuts and moving parts are a bit easier that way.  I don't necessarily weather them at that stage, but get the base coats on.  If I'm worried about the paint job on the bits, I mask them while I paint the rest.  If I'm not, I don't.  I generally paint my triggers black and call it a day, since my finger will likely be covering it most of the time.

Does that make any sort of sense?

Updates on my shooty thing!







Lessee, since I last posted here I have:

-glued barrel and scope (not pictured)
-filled trigger
-painted barrel, trigger, & undercuts
-epoxied everything shut & replaced screws
-weighted the hilt so it hefts better
-attached plating to cover holes
-filled screw holes and other unwanted bits
-applied a ton of bondo

And once again I'm at the bondo-sand-bondo-sand cycle of building. My favorite part :rolleyes:  Once I'm done with the body work I'll need to figure out how I'm planning on attaching the scope, and then we'll be golden!

I Want your stabby thing. Lol! That's pretty cool; about the same idea I had for mine. Though I'm thinking of putting a stabby thing in my gauntlet. Still unsure till I make the list of weapons my mando will be carrying. Keep it up vod

Thanks, vode!  I should probably post progress pictures on shooty soon, since I've done more work on him...  Maybe I'll get a chance this week.

Just putting a note here.  I've seen this thread a few times before while scouring the forums for weapon ideas, mods, and the like.  Really like the whole concept here, especially your 'splodey' things.  Well done, ner'vod.

Consider me adding a notify to this here thread.
