NERF Pulse Rifle Complete

Happy Wednesday everyone! I just wanted to share a couple of the final photos for the converted NERF stampede. I think it came out pretty convincing, but I’ll let you all be the real judges :)

Thanks for following the build and stay tuned for more cool stuff!

NERF Pulse Rifle progress photos!

Here’s some first photos of the Stampede-based Pulse Rifle Chris Glas has been building for me (hypercats.net). I should have it next week to begin the painting. It still functions and I’m hoping to have it looking epic when it’s done. Stay tuned! :)

Tornado Alley

So the past few days have been kinda wet and rainy. Today mother nature took it up a notch with multiple tornados touching down within about 5 miles of my office. I still put in some time at the shop, but every noise outside sounded very “tornado-y”. Yep, it’s a word, look it up! 😉

The PDK and Jayne’s sidearm are coming along nicely, as are the alpha troopers, mavericks and longstrike. If the weather lets up as it’s supposed to, I’ll have some pictures to show in a few days!

I did want to let everyone know I have quite a few listings on ebay right now, with very reasonable starting and BIN prices. Have a look if you’re looking for something unique. Thanks!

Have a great weekend!

What? No new pictures?

Hey everyone! Sorry, but no new photos yet because I actually took a few days off to go to Orlando for MegaCon. That was a good decision :) I’ve never seen so many people just enjoying themselves at one time! I also admit I saw a lot of firsts, not all of them images I wanted in my brain. But I digress… I ended up selling two of the three guns I took with me before I got to the ticket counter, so I ended up having some cash to spend. (Forgot what that felt like…heh). I ended up buying a PKD Blaster replica kit from the movie Blade runner, so although I’ll most likely sell it, it will still be a lot of fun to make one of my favorite movie guns. Some day I’ll find a reasonable way to get my hands on a M41-A Pulse Rifle from Aliens, but then I’ll have to pry it out of my hands after I finish it!

More stuff soon! Have a good one until then!
