Nerf mod Fallout homage
I’ve had this one on the go for the last few days, a Nerf Super Soaker Microburst Fallout Vault 101 mod. This started out with red plating and was going to be another Mass Effect mod, but then I got gazumped by a pal on DA and decided to change it to a Halo pistol. Once I’d done the green and looked at it I thought it didn’t really have the Halo look, given the guns in the Halo universe look generally more futuristic, less lumpy (for want of a better word). I decided to keep the Halo style HUD on the sight section, but changed it to be Fallout in nature. I think this looks better with the post apocalyptic feel of Fallout, rather than the scifi feel of Halo.
Needless to say this gun had some modding other than just a paint job. I took the front section of the Photon Storm I had laying around and dremeled it so it fit, added some grating across the original Nerf Microburst sight from my trusty hair-roller stash. Pulled the pump handle forward to give the gun length and attached the barrel extension. Needless to say, this is a prop / cosplay blaster for Fallout now and no longer functions as a water pistol.

Dirtied up the grip area with a burnished copper which I think works well for this genre / style.
