NERF Halo assault rifle

Over at the 405th, user Moz has modified his NERF rifle to fit right in to the Halo universe. Fortunately, he posted a few photos of the process so you can see how everything got hacked and modified and painted for the final result. He even put up a nice little video to show how it works. Nice one! Nerf Ma5B via gizmodo

Nerf Modifications and Paint Jobs.

Hello, I just thought I'd share the last few months of completed work with my fellow makers! I'm addicted to modifying and painting Nerf guns now because its something you put a lot of time into that is used regularly. It doesn't gather dust or become a paper weight like my previous model car hobby.  Anyway enjoy, and thanks for looking! More pictures can be provided if you're interested. JonnyBGood

A barrel for a modded nightfinder airsoft gun?

I have a 8 year old bro who has a bunch of nerf guns. He wanted play airsoft with me but doesn't want to get shot with my 400+ fps airsoft gun. I've been searching some things on instructables and found a way to change a nerf gun into a weak airsoft gun. My brother let me use his nightfinder and i ripped out the air restrictor. so now im supposed to make a barrel. He doesn't really like the idea of cutting up one of his darts so what is another item that i could use to make a barrel. he doesn't mind a decent fps on the gun just nothing too extreme. any other suggestions for other mods are accepted as well.

How to paint nerf sticky darts and still have them work?

I would like to "modify" my Nerf Maverick darts to make them look more "steampunky" but I would also like them to still be able to fire from said Maverick.

steampunk sealant

Hello, I am steampunking a nerfgun for my nephew and the assumption is that he will play with it. I thought I would use an acrylic clear sealant to protect the paint, but when I sprayed it, the paint krinkled -- once it dried, it became hard again. I have two more components to seal and would like to avoid this. (I sprayed the nerf with flat black Krylon spraypaidn (supposed to bond to plastic) and then dry brushed metallic acrylic paint for effect. One internet person suggested I use mod-lodge -- but the instructions say that after applying it, i should use a clear acrylic topcoat. So my question is--should I be using this extra step--or is there a paintable acrylic sealant i could use? What are best practices used by you folks?

How to remove model paint?

OK, my little brother sprayed Testors paint all over one of my best nerf guns (Vulcan EBF-20) and I need to know how to remove it. sandpaper is out of the question, so I'm looking for some solvent that will remove it.

Any way to remove a broken screw? Answered

Please, it's urgent. I've broken a metal cross-head screw, there is nothing for the screwdriver to cling to. I cannot preform the hammer method due to the object the screw is stuck in being plastic, and I can't afford to break the plastic. Please, I need you to help me. Dylan P.S This is a nerf gun (the hornet) and the screw is near the cocking mechanism.

Suggestions for painting an Invicta diving case?

So I've got some Instructables in mind for painting a Nerf Maverick. (Wait, you said you were painting an Invicta diving case...) Yes, you're right. The case will be a custom painted case to house a custom painted Nerf Maverick for a Christmas present. However, I have some questions about how to paint it. The case has a rough outside made from what I suspect to be high-impact plastic. The inside is smooth plastic with removable foam inserts and a rubber gasket seal. I know I will have to sand the inside to make the paint stick, but my question is if the outside is already a rough textured plastic, will I need to sand it as well? Also, what paints and finishes do you suggest for painting this case?  The Invicta logo on the back will need to be sanded (although I suppose I could leave it since they manufactured the case). The picture shows what my case looks like, minus the graffiti image. Thanks in advance, and God Bless!
