    What thickness of styrene does everyone use on these? I just picked up a Stryfe semi auto that I need to mod a bit, I am making a Starlord gun from the current comic run.

    I use everything and anything available. PVC board is also good to use in a lot of situations. Make sure to post your results when you're done with the build!

    Here's a couple projects I finished today. Sorry to not have more, but non-Nerf projects have been taking up a lot of my time here lately and I figure I better stick to proper subject matter on here, hehe

    I think I replied to the wrong post, sorry. I was referring to the aliens pulse rifle build, it looks really good so I thought I could replicate it in styrene.

    It was made from mostly styrene so you could certainly replicate it with a bit of time and effort! Good luck on the project!

    Great, now I've got way more Nerf guns. This includes another Recon CS6 (it works, the slide isn't stuck like the other one. It has the extended barrel and is missing the shoulder like the previous one), a Retaliator, two Maverick Rev-6s (one yellow, one blue), a Nerf Finder EX-10 and a Switch Shot Ex-3. All of them work.

    Another day, another attempt at a Nerf Gun Prop, but this time I am stealing from Badsprout,

    Found the Nerf Watergun on clearance and bought a couple and finished painting it today.



    I used what could have been the same alarm, but a different part on mine.



    And when getting parts found some lights at the dollar store to put in the dart holder on my first Nerf gun

    I decided I needed to make a suppressor for the other gun



    I really need to stop. This is becoming an obsession and I don't need another one.

    This was my first attempt at painting a Nerf gun. I picked the Buzzbee off brand just because this was my first attempt and I didn't want to ruin a perfectly good Nerf gun. This is a Buzzbee Rogue. I am new at this so any suggestions would be helpful.

    everything here is appreciated... no worries!

    question.. is it supposed to be textured?

    if not.. it may be a result of shooting/spraying a bit too far away from the gun/piece.

    You did a nice job just be aware that the texture paint tends to scrape off where you have the cocking handle. It looks really clean in this photo so I hope you're nox experiencing that issue. Keep up the good work

    Hello! Just finished some projects, here are some pics.
    sci fi props 003.JPGsci fi props 005.JPGsci fi props 006.JPGsci fi props 009.JPG
    The first three photos are of my nerf longshot converted to a halo br55, it's not a replica but pretty close i think. The second is a laser tag blaster that i removed the sensor dome and painted gloss black and flat black, it still works too.

    Ooh I like both of those, but that longshot mod is off the chart slick. Some of the cleanest lines in a mod I've seen, it looks like it came out of the box that way. Outstanding work buddy

    Very nice work! Is there any chance of better photos? I'd love to see the BR with more detail, thanks!

    Here's a few cellphone camera photos of couple projects I'm working on. The first is a Halo SAW inspired Rapidstrike (with a centurion bipod on for S&G) and the second one is fashioned after the Longshot sniper rifle in Gears of War. They each have a decent amount of work done already, but there's still plenty to do before they're done.

    Here's also a shot of the District 9 themed Diatron with the decals added. I may add a bit more since it wasn't a commission, but I'm pretty happy with it as-is.

    I'm always here, bud! haha Ok, maybe not as much with a new marketing job on the horizon, but I promise it won't mean the end to JA Props. Heck, it might even help with getting the word out there more which would be nice for anyone getting into the prop making business


    And those electronics look awesome!

    The scope on that centurion is very cool. Is that a custom build or some toy scope you had lying around?

    Here's a couple finished up nerf props - the Heavy Bolter was a long WIP, but it's finally done and shipped out today The second one is a Borderlands themed Alpha Trooper that I finished up on as well. It will be seeing some use with a cosplay at the NYCC by a buddy of mine going as Salvador the Gunzerker, hehe

    Anyone have an idea as to why the thumbnails don't seem to be appearing? I don't think I've made any changes and the photo uploads use to show a small photo as recently as just a few posts ago. Thanks!
