CHRONOS: Nerf Nite Finder mod by Hypercats CHRONOS: Nerf Nite Finder mod by Hypercats
I love this thing. It's sexy as hell, and would be a perfect sidearm for a lady Steampunk captain. I wanted to make it as dark and as battle worn as possible, whichi s why everything is so dark on it. I might have to try to make a newer, cleaner one.

Still fires darts, although it only seems to fire whistler darts. Streamline darts seem to be more firm and don't want to go down the barrel all the way, like there's a lip that they catch on. Whistlers still shoot well and whistle through the air. :D

I originally had the wings glued on with expanding urethane glue, but the contact surface was so small that they didn't hold, which is why I had to switch over to a pair of brass screws. They hold the wings on super tight!

I gotta say, I love your paint jobs and your original stuff. And I can see you have some sculpting skills. Challenge yourself ! Go beyond the norm! Look at weird boxes or strange shaped throwaway stuff. Think out of the Nerf! I know ya got it in ya!

Scavenge for any thing that might look usable. I just cannibalized a old destroyed player piano and got tons of parts and bits! Forget custom mavericks, everybody and his troglodyte cousin does Nerf.

Just advise from a fellow prop builder...:)

Thanks! I challenge myself all the time. Right now, I'm experimenting with printed surfaces and faux paint effects.

There is a product you can buy that does instant rust also.

Stay creative!!

Yeah there's techniques that involve iron patina and a mixture of glue and water to make it rust.

If you think powdered Ice Tea mix is orange, you should try a bag of Thai iced tea! It's got added dye powder!

The contrast between your wood and metal looks great. Where did you find the wings?
