Aliens: Nerf Pulse Rifle

About: Just a huge movie geek, looking to get a little bit of the movies in my life.

Intro: Aliens: Nerf Pulse Rifle

"Hey Ripley, don't worry. Me and my squad of ultimate badasses will protect you! Check it out! Independently targeting particle beam phalanx. Vwap! Fry half a city with this puppy. We got tactical smart missiles, phase-plasma pulse rifles, RPGs, we got sonic electronic ball breakers! We got nukes, we got knives, sharp sticks." -Hudson (Aliens)

Ok, now, not all of my instructables are going to be of Aliens. This was made before I had an account, so some photos will be missing. Now for some supplies!

Nerf Long-shot
Nerf Recon
Camo spray paint
Black Spray paint

Step 1: The Plan

What I did for the gun was take the front of the Nerf Long-Shot and cut the top off of it, I then took the recon and removed the cocking thing. Then I took pieces of cardboard and made it into the shape. of the top. This is a picture if my plan.

Step 2: Taking Shape

I put paper mache around the cardboard to get the shape just right. At first I had painted the gun black and the paper mache a dark green That was a bad Idea, because it looked to dark. The real color of the paper mache part is a camo color, I found some paint at walmart, and it was perfect. the amo clip was the same.

Step 3: Counter

the counter was done by using two pieces of cardboard, a strawberry container, and a printed image. on my computer I made a picture of the counter. and printed it out. I cut a square out of the cardboard that fit the shape of the printed paper. Then I cut out a piece of the strawberry container for the screen. I painted the cardboard the color of the gun, and glued the pieces together and then onto the gun.

Step 4: Any Suggestions

For detail I put a small piece of black tape on the bottom. I am still trying to find a way to make it possible to cock it back. If you have any suggestions, please post them below.

    Looks good.
    I gotta say, Aliens is another favorite movie of mine! That show was ahead of its time. Paxton was great in the movie.

    Really nice job but I'm thinking that if u smoothed out the paper it would look a lot nicer. But it still looks great. Thanks for the instructable
