Intro: Nerf Scout IX-3 Borderlands Hyperion Conference Call Paintjob
My first attempt in documenting my paint project. Lets go through what we need;
1- Nerf Scout (in photo) or any other blaster.
2- Tools;- screw driver, pliers, etc
3- Masking tape
4- Sand paper
5- Spray paint;- flat black, silver, red
First step. You need to carefully disassemble the gun. Keep all the screws and small parts in a container. You dont want to lose any of those. Take photos for reference in case you forget which part goes where.
Sand down any surface of the shell. Remove the logos and warning text if you desire, which i did. Since i dont have a dremel tool, it took me quite abit of time.
After that, make sure you clean the surface with a wet cloth.
I started with flat black spray as base. I didnt bother with the grey primer. (couldnt remove the trigger because the screw was stripped.)
Leave the parts to dry for abit.
Start masking the parts that i wanted to remain black.
After spraying it with silver, carefully and slowly remove the masking tapes....
More masking for the red spray paint.
The red looks a little too glossy, but its fine...
Brushing some silver paint on the edges to create a weathered effect...
Painted the trigger silver, which could be a mistake. Now the trigger is a little to tight. Since im not playing with the gun, i left it.
Adding dirt and grime on the surface. Works pretty well on the glossy red too...
Reassemble the internals of the blaster according to the previously taken photo.
There ya go. Done. Nerf blaster with Conference Call paintjob.
