Thought I'd start off a new thread with some of my custom builds. This will be mostly sci-fi weapons built off of modded Nerf guns and/or airsoft parts.

My first one here is a modded Raptorstrike. The stock gun looks like this:

It's just begging for a barrel.

So the first thing I did was add one, made from a piece of aluminum pipe I had around the house. I also gathered some other left over airsoft parts I had on hand.

This M203 grenade launcher adapter fit perfect!

I decided I would keep the barrel raw. I just love how you can see it peaking through the sides.

I also added some parts to this barrel shroud to make it look more like some kind of sci-fi suppressor.

I modded this replica Elcan scope that I picked up cheap with an aluminum handguard I replaced from a previous M4 build.

Some other parts I knew I wanted to integrate into this build were from this cord organizer set.

The basic parts put together:

Next thing I wanted to do was paint the mags and .308 just happened to fit perfectly in them.

Prepping for paint:

After some dk gray automotive primer . . .

I also had these stand-off spacers that I thought would look really cool as part of the bi-pod hydraulics. I love adding a variety of materials wherever possible on my builds.

Now, back to that cord organizer . . .

I had an old mic cord that was pretty long, so I cut it into pieces.

I was really inspired by the work WETA did on Spectral. If you haven't seen it, I definitely recommend checking it out! Spectral (2016) - IMDb

I used these metal cord mounts I got from Home Depot.

I also wanted to add a rear stabilizer, so I chopped a magpul mount down and installed it on the underside of the buttstock.

I used the other parts to mount the scope and an additional laser on the side.

I'm digging this silhouette!

I also added a flip-out screen on the side made from a cheapo MP3 player. At some point I'll upload some kind of range-finder graphic.

Starting to look pretty mean . . .

Only thing left to do was some weathering and decals!

I had some left-over Oblivion decals, and this thing was starting to look like it could fit right in that world, so why not!?

Wow! Very professional looking!

Love how the parts you used look right at home, sometimes props build themselves, in a way!

Really does look like it belongs with that Oblivion "rifle", though I'd call THIS the RIFLE, now!

Nice work!

Stunning! I know I've already commented on this particular build before, but I absolutely love the color theme and the little details you add, such as the air soft parts, metal gizmos, and especially the blue LED in the handle.. If I have one critique, it would be the Nerf/warning labels. They're not really noticeable, but they kinda take me out of the whole experience, that is unless you were intending it to still be a "Nerf" gun. Either way, fantastic work.
