Post apoc ghetto blaster by Hypercats Post apoc ghetto blaster by Hypercats
So I managed to make a barrel attachment for the Maverick from Stampede parts and some 1" acrylic tube. We have a teslapunk con this weekend, and I thought this big, chunky gun would be perfect for being NOT STEAMPUNK FOR THE LOVE OF GOD IF I SEE BRASS GEARS ON EVERY COSTUME I AM GOING TO KILL SOMEBODY.

So I have a friend who's coming up from Chi town and he needs a gun. This'll be perfect for him to lug around! Yeah, it's got some gold and brass, but I wanted to keep it looking as grimy, rusty, and dirty as possible. It's hard to tell in the picture, but the half sphere behind the cylinder and the grip are a light blue metallic which really makes the rust and the gold pop. This'd be a great Fallout gun too, I'd imagine, if I put some OD Green on the frame.

Thanks! I have some other things I still want to try with Mavs. The Strongarm is out, but there's so many Mavericks in circulation now that we'll probably still be seeing them for a few years.

There's a few other Alternate Reality/Retrofuturistic styles that are pretty cool besides Steampunk. This guy has a pretty good list of other styles besides "steam/gears/leather/goggles/brass"

This is probably the coolest looking barrel mod I've seen on a Mav. Great job!

Thanks, it means a lot! I've probably seen every "glued to the front of a Maverick" mod out there, and I wanted to do some thing that was not only unique, but fit the Nerf asthetics and actually added something to the gun other than just having a bit of a plastic bottle cap glued to the front. Now to find a way to attach it without having to use Gorilla glue or bondo....


Also, ever since I saw your Nerf Disc Shot, I've been searching for one to make into a "dieselpunk/teslapunk backpack". I found one at a thrift store, and I'll have pictures soon. Yours looks a lot better than mine so far!

I never thought of turning the Disc Shot into a backpack, but that'll be awesome. I can't wait to see what you do.

There are a few adhesives out there. I can't seem to find the bottle of what I use, but I got it in a craft store. had like p9000 or something written on it. works really well, and I've seen other modders use the same stuff.

Probably E6000. It's okay, I use it a lot, but it's not a high strength glue. It's kind of like silicone, like liquid nails. Great for a lot of projects, but not for something that needs to bond a heavy object to another heavy object at the point of the weakest structural integrity.
