I think the Alpha Trooper is one of the coolest models Nerf has released this year. So here we have another Alpha Trooper Mod inspired by the upcoming COD Black Ops game. It is quite similar to my previous Alpha Trooper Mod but I felt I could do just a bit better. I went with a jet black matte finish with chrome details. Added the barrel extension/silencer and mounted a functioning Red dot sight on top.
Developed by the weapons research division of the UNSC this early prototype was said to be heavily favored and influenced by feedback generated from the Spartan program. Spartans requested that their Assault Rifles have greater accuracy for mid to long range battles engagements so testing began. Data acquired from these tests eventually yielded such weapons as the DMR and ultimately the Battle Rifle which helped humanity prevail against the Covenant.
This is the only prototype known in existence to have made it off the planet Reach before the Covenant invasion.
Just something I have been messing around with the last few days. Made entirely from EVA foam (just like my M8 Assault rifles) Rather than inserting a metal skeleton in this one I just hacked up and modded a Nerf gun for the core and handle.
Day 3 Progress: Still a lot of detailing/paint to add but the base of the gun is now finished. Scope is removable. The emblems will be sculpted/cast and attached last.
