Introduction: Golden Eclipse (Nerf Stampede Mod)

Picture of Golden Eclipse (Nerf Stampede Mod)

Here is my finished modified nerf stampede.

All the parts that were yellow on the guns was painted gold, and almost all of the rest was painted black. 

If you didn't see my earlier photos of this, then I will tell you what I have done.
I fully modified a nerf maverick to the best of my potential, cut a part of the stampede off, and part of the handle off of the maverick and glued the maverick onto the under barrel of the stampede. It is basically a stampede/ maverick integration.
No modifications had been done to the stampede until I had painted it, but since then I have upped the voltage to the motor in the stampede by soldering on a battery pack that holds 8 AA batteries. This makes the gun shoot about 4 shots per second. This also made the gun quite lighter, and more balanced all together. With the 6 D cell batteries in the back the gun was really back heavy; but now with the modified battery pack the gun is lighter and shoots faster. Overall I think this is the best nerf gun modification I have ever done.
Please leave me some feedback. Is this a good idea at all?
Also, I would like to know how I could put the name of the gun (Golden Eclipse) onto the stampede somehow?

9 Volt batteries would take less space and you don't need so many double A. Same principal just different battery adapter.

Using a stencil is the easiest way that still looks professional however modelling clay could be used to elevate the letters around a millimetre or so.

1. Get screwdriver(flat one)
2. Chisel it on

How do you cock and fire the maverick? It looks like it would not fit any normal way you hold a gun, so I am interested to know how you pull this off! Amazing job by the way!

Dude make an instructible on how to attach the maverick!

Get the gears and the other internal parts cast in metal. Then upgrade the motor and spring. I like it!

Seleziona (author)shadowninja312011-10-05

Oh gosh. That sounds like too much! I like it how it is now, and I bet that would cost a lot of money :/

shadowninja31 (author)Seleziona2011-10-05

Yeah but it would be amazing!

Seleziona (author)shadowninja312011-10-06

I agree it would be really awesome, but if I did decide to do it I would do it with a new stampede.

shadowninja31 (author)Seleziona2011-10-07

Yeah. Make it look stock then fire a hundred feet.

I think thats really BA i think im gonna do the whole battery pack mod thats a really good idea good job

Seleziona (author)CODKING2011-10-05

Yes, it's a really good and easy idea.

Senior Waffleman (author)2011-10-01

Nice :D and FIRST!!!

Thanks! And do you have any ideas how I can get the name onto the gun?

~Z~ (author)Seleziona2011-10-01

Stencil it on? Or if you are lazy you could use a clear label maker....

Seleziona (author)~Z~2011-10-02

I don't know what that is..

The thing with the plastic, it has a dial on top with all the letters, and you press on the shape to a strip of thick material, cut it, peel off the paper revealing the adhesive, and put somewhere, commonly used for such things, but not to cool for something like this

Oh okay

~Z~ (author)Seleziona2011-10-03

A label maker?

mettaurlover (author)2011-10-02

Better paint the end of the barrel orange if you're in the US...

Seleziona (author)mettaurlover2011-10-02

naw I'm in Canada.

mettaurlover (author)Seleziona2011-10-02

Well, then, have fun with that. I kinda wish I was in Canadia; my Vulcan looks kinda dumb with a bright orange barrel end on it.

Seleziona (author)mettaurlover2011-10-02

hah, I bet it kinda does :P

PIMP GUN 2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

dr. richtofen (author)2011-10-02

I don't realy like those nerf-guns, but i love this one! good job!

Seleziona (author)dr. richtofen2011-10-02

haha, thanks!

Senior Waffleman (author)2011-10-01

Try right here

Yeah that'd be a good spot. But should I just paint it on?

Ummm, i kinda think it would be better if it popped a little, or if it was carved in, idk, how thick is the plastic? Maybe you can carve it in a little and paint?

I could maybe carve it, but it'd be really crude. I just got an idea that might work too. I was thinking I could make a stencil for the name out of a big piece of paper and just spray paint it on.

Nice, and make it with the lines in the middle, and make it kinda scratched so it looks worn :D

Yeah, I will :D I'll probably do that today.

Sweet :D
