Artic Mass Effect Nerf Rifle by JohnsonArms Artic Mass Effect Nerf Rifle by JohnsonArms
Arctic White version of the N7 Rifle. Special request by the commissioner :) I like how it came out - just needs a bit more weathering on the barrel

How much would it cost you to make another? I'm very interested in buying one.

Thanks, white it a tough color for me, it's tough to keep it clean where you want to. No forgiveness at all to smudges :)

So do you disassemble it first, then sand it, prime it, sand it, and then paint?

Or do you do all of it while it is still on the gun with the internal parts?

no disassembly on this one. I'm insane that way, I suppose. the rest of the steps you have down just about right!

I am trying to acheive a similar white finish on my Stampede. I'm going for a clean District 9 look. I wanted to know how you prepare the surface before painting and also is this spray painted, hand brushed or airbrushed?

It's all but the airbrush. I basecoat with primer after sanding and then sand down the primer before the second coat. The brushwork is the "magic" part, but with this gun the white is really the focus so I knew the rest of it would just be added visual fun. Really hope you have good luck with yours!

I do airsoft as well, it just depends on what the person needs. There are quite a few mixed in the gallery right now and most of those I can get again if someone wanted a "copy" of something.

Thank you very much, I really appreciate the offer to show my stuff :)

I am going to do a kind of all-body chrome gun soon, a bit like MIB style guns. If you really ever want an all black or gloss/matte mixtures (that sounds cool actually...hmm) just send me a PM. Thanks!

The contrast is very nice and works well with the gun. :)
Shame you have to weather the barrel, the crispness of the colors works so well.

It'll be subtle, promise! Glad you like it, the guy wanted something different...I now know white guns are a bitch to keep pretty before clearcoating :)
