District 9 Themed Nerf Diatron by JohnsonArms District 9 Themed Nerf Diatron by JohnsonArms
When I picked this up in the store, it just screamed District 9 to me (that happens when I don't take the meds!). I finally got around to finishing it and wanted to share the results!

This is the first modded Diatron I have seen!
I actually picked one up the other day for a new paint job and LED additions.
Awesome work on this!

Thanks very much!  Sorry the angle of the photo makes the protruding part look a little wonky, but I promise it looks a lot better in person :)   I wish you well on your project and I hope you'll let me know when you finish it up!  I'd love to check it out!

For me it screams "Dead Space". (Plasma Cuter)

Great work! i love how you made it look like old, scratched metal, it really adds to the District 9 feel.

Dunno why, but the Diatron always makes me think of these chinese dragons that you see at festivals.

It's that gaping mouth that does it.  That could be a really cool idea for a paintjob :)

I was thinking about doing that paintjob myself, but am inexperienced with using air-powered paintbrushes. Cause a regular spray can probably won't do for that.

 

But if anyone wants to pick up the idea, I'd love to see their take on it, you included.

I dunno, I do a lot with the rattle cans.  It's a bit of practice, but I think you could do it!
