Sometimes you just need a grenade

So, in my free time (ha!), I decided to work on a grenade. Seemed logical at the time. I had some plastic grenades left from a project, so I paired them up to LEDs and a bit of epoxy clay. This is the result :) I think it looks pretty cool and I hope you guys enjoy. If anyone’s interested in one or a few, please let me know. I have a lot of other styles to try out, hehe.

So I decided to re-do the standard cylinders that taper a bit. I intend to sleeve each barrel with a brass sleeve to seal the darts better. I’m not sure that the color will stay this way, it was just a painted shell I used as a stand-in. I hope it improves the look of the blaster. The barrels certainly added some nice weight to it of nothing else :)

So I had some parts sitting about and I decided to see if I could make a steam tank. This was just a fitting, but it’s looking just the way I envisioned it :) I think it will really be difficult to recognize this as a foam dart gun, when it’s complete. Thanks for having a look and feel free to subscribe for more stuff like this!

Ok, it’s not done, but here’s the first photo of the wooden Maverick with a steampunk feel to it. More depth to be added to the paint, but it’s coming along. I’m starting to like doing the wood finishes! Muahaha 😀
