Possable heavy flamer or plasma gun base?
« on: November 04, 2009, 04:50:00 AM »
I picked up a air zone Dual Shot the other day.

http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2671897

I think it could be a nice quick base to build a heavy flamer of plasma gun...
I also think the Nerf Vulcan could be used to make a heavy bolter

What do you guys think?

I see the potential, but it would need a lot of sanding and refinishing work, not to mention a bigger handle and a promethium tank. Still, could work!

i thought the same before i handled the guns, particularly the vulcan, they are kid sized sadly, and would require more than a few small shapes and a paintjob to convert, at least in my opinion.

Here is a Space Marine wielding a Nerf Vulcan.  It has the handles and the ammo belt, but is not nearly as big as a Heavy Bolter, as Kommisar said.

I am gonna make this pretty blunt. I hate nerf guns, everyone uses them and they don't change a thing except the color. I always tell costumers in my Mandalorian group (http://mercs.firespray.net/) to try and stay away from them as much as possible. This however has potentional for your purposes. I think it needs drastic changes so that when people look at it they don't see a nerf gun, they see a heavy flamer or heavy plasma. When I look at the pic with the vulcan, I think "OMG he is using a Vulcan, how tacky" there is no creativity.

Now, I agree with mallus most of the way. I've seen some nice nerf modifications in my day, but usually the gun requires so much modification that one is usually better off just building off an airsoft gun or scratch building. Any kid that walks past will recognize a longshot or a vulcan at a glance, and then will say "hey! i've got that gun!"

Here is one of the newest nerf guns, the longstrike cs-6
with a quick clip mod, looks a lot like a AK-47. No paint or anything other then the clip mod.



Soon this one too shall be made infamous as the "snipper rifle" and be modded and painted to oblivion [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' />

I agree, some mods are better then others, some people take the mod farther then other can or want to.


One reason that nerf guns are so popular is they are inexpensive ,readly available and look very cool on their own, come on, you know you thought so when you 1st saw them [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' />

It just gose to show there is a market for these types of things and nerf is the big fish right now.


I for one live in an appartment and do not have the space to set up a proper shop to be able to build all the pure custom things I would like to, so I like starting with a base gun I can build off of.

Nerf guns and guns like them provide people like me that base, also some people like to "test the waters" with nerf guns becouse they are so cheap. They feel they can try out customizing with out worry. Lets also not forget that some people just have NEVER tried anything like this so a repaint is a nice way to enter the hobby ,jazz up a costume and hopefully give them the confidence to mod farther!

Anyway, I try not to bash people for using nerf guns, but rather encourage them to go farther next time.
Don't forget, everyone was a noob once.

I think that the new longshot could actually be a pretty good scout sniper rifle, if you make sure to take the time and do it right, which, from your other threads, i imagine you will.
