Nerf Longstrike Movie Prop by JohnsonArms Nerf Longstrike Movie Prop by JohnsonArms
Here's the final product on a gun that will be used for filming and also public appearances. All Nerf logos were removed and I added a custom heat shield under the barrel to match a previous version. The coloring had to stay pretty reserved, but I think it came out pretty good. I'm hoping to land more of these opportunities this summer and the weather really improves around the..world? :)

This looks really awesome :D
I just recently bought a LongStrike myself and I was thinking of painting it black or dark green for either a short film or costume...
Is there any tips you could give me?
Do I have to take the whole thing apart or can I just paint it all together?
Last question, is there much of a danger of doing it wrong? I was hesitant to buy it because it was more expensive than I'd like. If I screw up I will not be able to get another one...
If you could answer these it would be great, if not nevermind then :P

What kind/type of paint and sealant did you use?

I originally just used spray paint and the spray paint sealer however I want to do better/more detailed work this time around.

I think it was Krylon mostly, but I used a variety of paints on the different parts so it's honestly hard to remember :) I use that and Rustolem mostly when I use the rattle cans.

Take your time with the paint drying, that will be the best thing for making a better end product!

Yeah I used Krylon too, perhaps my area wasn't ventilated well enough, temperatures not warm enough or perhaps didn't wait long enough between coats of paints.

I was like i said earlier, hoping you did some paint by hand as well so I'd know what kind of paint to potentially use as spray painting is impossible where I live now.

I use testors and humbrol and a few others, but it would be very tough to lay a basecoat with them. You'll end up with a lot of paint build-up and that takes away from the realism. I hope you're able to find a solution!

I hope so as well, I picked up several more nerf guns on clearance at a store here, some may get a paint job others may just go straight to my paint airsoft nerf association that i run at my university
