Painted this one for my wife for indoor battles. I couldn't decide if I wanted the drum mag to be a nail coil or an 18v battery. Either way, I think it turned out pretty good. It could use some more black wash, I suppose, but I didn't want to dirt it up too much.
Were did you get the labels?
I need one of these for my tool box...
I'd hang it in the garage, but it's my wife's favorite Nerf gun, so she takes it with her when we go to Nerf outings.
Ah! This is so awesome! Love it, love it, love it!
Another brilliant Dewalt adaptation... Well done!
Love this thing
Thanks! When we bring it to parties, guys who don't play with Nerf guns love it.
FANTASTIC! I love it!
That's fantastic! Great paint scheme and weathering
Thanks! I'll have some video of it in action this weekend. It's time for our annual "30+ people in a house full of Nerf guns and beer" party.
Excellent job. I've got one of these drills, you seem to have matched the colour and markings perfectly.
Thanks, it's close, but there's some things I would do differently if I did it again. Most DeWalt tools have yellow plastic, and I opted to weather this Rayven to look like the yellow pieces were cast aluminum with a yellow powdercoat that was chipping off. Big difference in wear. Plastic would scratch, scrape, and gouge, and those would be filled with black gunk over time. :/
Amazing work, as always. Loving the label work. A lot of thought went into it and it really shows.
People ask me all the time "how do you do drybrush"? But 90% of it is knowing how different materials wear on what surfaces, and how much of the underlying material to "expose" through wear. I think there's like 4 or 5 different drybrush techniques used on this one piece, in different places where either the wear would be different, or materials would be different. For example, a heavy silver drybrush on flat black would imply a dirty bare aluminum or steel surface [link] , whereas a light silver drybrush on just the edges of a satin black would imply minor/moderate wear on a denser, black metal alloy [link]
NICE! You know I liked it before and now it's all touched up and grimy it looks even more epic. I love how you've sort of rubbed away at one of the decals and added that sort of 'burnt' look. Great stuff.
