Mira-Belle 3 by Arph Mira-Belle 3 by Arph
This is my first Nerf modification, used for steampunk LARP's.

Her name is Mira-Belle, a pretty elegant and dangerous lady.

It's maded with a nerf N-strike Recon CS-6, some scratch parts and a lot of acryl paint.

It's a classical 6-dart nerf clip, I added two round CD-boxes and some wooden plates.

It's just patience, passion and paint, not so much money ;)

It fires, but it's not a real drum clip.

Still epic....... btw: couldn't you just edit the raider's drum? it has been out for a while, and i dont think anyone has modded it yet (other than painting) like your modding, as in, i don't think anyone has customised or edited the 35 dart drum with engravings or anything yet, you would be first if you did :D.

I dislike the look of the raider's drum, because the round part of it is not enough integrate to the gun. On Nerfhaven, there is the tips for modding this drum to be more centred, but still too much outside of the gun for me.

I prefer the alpha trooper's drum, but my wife will not be very happy if I buy another nerf gun again, just for the look xD

And actually I'm working on a Barricade, see you soon ;)

makes sense, as the raider's drum is sorta designed for.... well... the raider and therefore not centered so it looks good on the RAIDER.. it works and theoretically improves the recon's Range, but isn't designed to look good with the recon.... (it DOES noteably compliment the stampede, though). *Is hoping to see that barricade mod...anticipating utter epicness*.****SKIP IF YOU DON'T WANT OFF TOPIC CRAP**** I also here they are releasing a new nerf license "later this year", but I have no idea if it will or will not REPLACE n-strike, and no word has been said supporting/against this idea.... keep your eyes on te nerf website for news on the nerf "Vortex" line... and grab n-strike while you can, and if you want that last stampede on the wal-mart shelves, but are thinking "it'll be there 2 years from now" think again. This does NOT mean to be alarmed as this may or may not be the case... if anyone hears further intel on this, correct/support me with it plz. Still..... be on the lookout for black striped yellow and orange nerf guns that will serve as a countdown to the new license. REMEMBER: N-strike's reign over the market MAY end after 8 years (longer than any other btw. Didn't mean to get off topic, just thought i'd let you and anyone who reads know: n-strike is a license of nerf. Like all others, it will end.... and since a new license is on it's way, you can judge it may be it's reign's downfall (though I admit I somewhat excited about the new rather cool-looking guns). More alarming support to this is that you will note: the nerf gun isles in stores here in Pensacola are getting reduced as I note. While i do realize:
1. here in FL it is springand they are clearing off for water guns
2. no-one wants to use foam dart guns in warmer seasons (except serious nerfers (me))
it still seems a bit alarming to me.Nerf N-Strike's fate may be::iconenterplz::icosonichappyplz::iconexitplz:****OFF TOPIC CRAP ENDS HERE, YOU CAN START READING AGAIN****

Well, back on topic, hope to see the barricade mod... what mods are you planning to do to it? Did you know that you can use one to make a recon automatic by removing it's internals and putting them in a recon? That's all i gotta say. See it then.:D

what is LARP in NERF?
Reply
:iconarph:
Arph Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2010
LARP is Live Action RolePlay, or roleplaying game in costume and in real life. Often during a weekend, you endorse the role of a fictional character with other people (from 10 to ... 2000!). It's most often played in fantasy/medieval style, but more and more you can find futuristic/steampunk/western LARPs.

NERF guns are toys that shot foam darts. As there are perfectly safe, we use them in LARPs to simulate real weapons.

...that is a beautiful piece of machinery. i must get more into steampunk, in truth. this rekindles the spirit of the old in the style of the new, and it makes my heart cry out in joy.

now that the sappy crap is out of the way, i must figure out how to combine nerf with steampunk as effortlessly as you have here
