HALO Inspired Nerf Vulcan Done by JohnsonArms HALO Inspired Nerf Vulcan Done by JohnsonArms
Here's a customized Vulcan I did a while back. Adding the dust and grime was a bit scary, but the coverage came out good enough to look plausable for an ugly alien planet. I'm working on a few more at this time (one WH40k themed and one that has an identity crisis at this time :) That will be sorted soon enough, though.

Hasbro needs to have another go at an underhand, belt-fed blaster, because while the Vulcan looks cool it doesn't perform well. Anyway, good job, I like that bit of yellow you added for detail.

It's just a lot of layering and blending really. It's hard to explain what I'm doing when I don't always know myself :) I would always suggest practicing on less expensive things to develop your own style. I wish you luck!

All said, I think it was about 3-4 weeks. I should be doing another one soon, hopefully I can make some improvements on version 2 :)

Welp, if you wanna see it, you may have to wait a while :(. It's cold as f#$% where I'm at, so its not good spray painting weather. Gotta wait for the spring when its more warmer out. But trust me, you'll see it when it comes :)

Thanks, I don't think I broke down any barriers with the color scheme, but I did my best to keep the details clean while still dirtying it up. Really glad you guys like how it come out

The paint job on this is sweet would make a great movie prop. This is one of those times that I think having the imprinted naming from Nerf left on actually adds even more to the coolness factor.
