Here the "making of" for another weapon of ATTACK OF THE CYBER OCTOPUSES film project.
Again it's a Nerf gun modded and painted. I wanted to keep the same style of the previous one 'cause they are both for the same team members. I like them minimalistic, not many colors, not many wires or LEDs (that, however, will be present in some of the next weapons). This one is actually for the leader of a cyberspace detectives team!
So let's start with some sanding and a bunch of tools!
Then I took apart the gun and masked the shooting mechanism.
And of course the first painting step is to cover the whole thing with gray primer (it's something I do a couple of times, this photo shows the first coat).
Then a couple of layers of matte black spray.
On the barrel too...
I then masked almost everything except some parts where I liked the blue metallic color.
Here's a coat of blue metallic (in this case just one layer was enough).
I sprayed blue also the barrel, then I dry painted everything with silver details, for a little "worn" and scratched effect. Here's how it looks like, compared to the previous gun.
And here the final fancy photos of the weapon!
