Interesting build so far.  How does the cocking mechanism work on the nerf gun itself?  Is it at the rear?

As for the ejection port, it only exists on the one side.  Traditionally it is on the right hand side, but either side works.

It is obviously an Artificer Holy Bolter because of the ejection port!  [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='biggrin.gif' />

I think the cocking mechanism is a slide under the barrel?

i was going to make this stuff out of wood, but the wood i have had a plastic layer that would cooperate whit my dremel








i think its starting to look decent

i think I'm going to leave the skull and the sign as they are, maybe put a bit of gold color spar paint.
the flat parts of the bolter are going to be black and the textured parts white

Good start.

Did you "free hand" the winged skull with a dremel ?...Nice work !

My only criticism would be the hand grip and trigger looks too small .

thanks LARKIN and KOL

this is what i used for reference



for the hand grip I'm going to add some foam to make it bigger. but not much i can do for the trigger do.

D: nooooooo ! one of the tips for my dremel broke. now the skulls cant look the same

the skull on the right is the one i had to make whit a broken tip.


the wing on the left is the broken tip.



i did not glue the middle part of the top ,so if a bullet jams i can clear it.

lieutenant's log: DAY 3 : supplies are running low,I'm starting to see things, hear things . don't know how much longer i can hold out...i think all the toxic fumes from burning plastic have gone to my head :/
PROGRESS! a lot was done today




making that fr@cking angle was a pain in the @ss



made a hatch, so if the bullet jams i can unjam it.
