Hi there!
Here my conversion from a Nerf gun toy to a display prop. Not 100% accurate but i think it looks good. It was a funny job.

The toy gun.

I covered the space with thin foamed pvc. Then some bondo, sanding and priming.

The new canon was made with a pvc pipe heated and sqeezed. The spaces under the canons was covered with pvc piece too. Then more bondo, sanding and priming.

I bought a cheap machinegun toy with sound and light module, then I extracted It and reinstalled it into the blaster. I added blue leds and a rumble motor.

The final paint job. For the main hilt, I used a spray silver base coat. I masked the future scratch with liquid mask them I sprayed satin black. Once dry the black, the mask of the scratch was peeled.
For the carbon effect i painted one by one the rectangles with dark gun metal acrylic paint.
For the metallic effect, I used Alclad paints.
Them some weathering with airbrush and washes with acrylic dark brown and....tachán!! Finished. Ready to display.

Fantastic work. That's very similar to how I plan to do mine, but the electronics are an added bonus.
