Nerf Maverick by burntcustard Nerf Maverick by burntcustard
My new nerf gun :D

Yeah I spent hours painting it and attaching real fake leather :P And of course it looks way better in real life, especially the gold. :)

Also for people who know what these things mean, its had the air restricters removed and its had two of those flat batteries (which are the perfect size) put behind the spring.
It shoots a few feet further than it used to.. and makes a louder "twaaaang" :)

Ohh i just noticed a bit of "leather" pointing out a bit in the photo, its gone now :P

Here's my girlfriends gun (which i painted): [link]

If I can give you some advice on your photo (since you mentioned it looks better in person). When you photograph your work, especially when your subject is relatively dark, it's best to use a muted background. IE, something not white. The white background makes automatic cameras set themselves incorrectly for a dark subject. I used to use white backgrounds, and when I changed to darker and patterned backgrounds, my photos turned out much nicer.

Thanks for the advice! Unfortunately my camera broke a while ago and I haven't got a new yet (student.. couldn't even afford a cable to go between the camera and computer right now)

Your Nerf (and other brand) guns are great by the way :)

I with the grip i cut some thin fake leather to approximately the right size then used superglue stick bits at a time, then used a scalpel to get the shape better. On the bottom of the grip and the sides of the sliding bit (cocking mechanism?) i kept cutting pieces of leather and checking the size until it was perfect, then stuck it down with superglue. (Later i re-glued any corners which weren't quite secure)

I'm sure i could have explained that better.. it was simple, but simple in the most tricky and time consuming of ways :P
