Nerf Firestrike - Mass Effect Phalanx M5 style! by Hypercats Nerf Firestrike - Mass Effect Phalanx M5 style! by Hypercats
Yeah, that works. I bought a Firestrike to see if I liked the new N-Strike Elite, and they're great. This thing fires pretty damn far and fast compared to the older Nite Finder. It's going to be a fun gun to paint and mod.

So the more I stared at it on my desk, the more I was convinced that I could turn it into an M5, or the Mass Effect 3 N7 equivalent. I like the black/white/grey combo of the M5 and I think it turned out pretty good here.

The original M5 artwork shows it all banged up and dirty, and I wanted to really scuff this one up and add some wear and grime. Kind of hard to do on black/white/grey, when you're adding silver overtop of it and then hitting it with a flat clearcoat. :/

I usually sand the name off of the nerf guns, what do you use to make sure the paint touches the labels?

For this, I used water slide decal paper.

Michaels or Hobby Lobby sell it with the rest of the Testors stuff.

Even if I wasn't a raging Mass Effect fan, and the Phalanx wasn't my favorite pistol, THIS would still be the coolest Nerf Mod ever.

Shocking how one extra piece and a killer paint job can completely change the look of a base. I know this is something of a proto for yeh; I'm sure that the final will be even more impressive. Keep it up!
