Steampunk, Nerf Gun

So I picked up a few Nerf Guns that are going to be converted into some really cool steampunk guns.
The big pistol is called the "Nerf Maverick" and the smaller one is called the "Nerf N-Strike Nite Finder EX-3".  These of course will accompany me on my Halloween adventures.  You can pick the guns up at a lot of toy stores, Ebay, Amazon and many other places.

Here is what I plan on doing.

  • Sand off the "NERF" insignia.
  • Cut some gouges into it to give it that "battle damage" look
    Take the gun apart for priming and painting.
  • Spray Paint it brown
  • Drybrush with gold paint.
  • Use some other color (metallic aqua, silver or something) for the accent parts
  • Seal the parts
  • Add clock gears and bits to steampunk it out.
Here are some examples of painted steampunk Nerf guns.
