Trying to play catchup a little on DA. I did this one ages back now, but here it is on DA. This is a Nerf Rayven blaster (still working) modded as a homage to one of my favorite movies "The Thing" by John Carpenter.

Full write-up about this prop HERE.

Sweet One of my favorite movies... This would work for Aliens also

So much greatness, I'm fan of your work! Especially this one considering how F*ing hard is the white color to master. I hope I get somewhere close to your talent someday!

Aww thank you. I am so sorry it took me all this time to respond. I rarely check DA (I had 15,000+ updates LOL). White is a pain in the neck, but if you have an excuse to dirty it up a little that helps :)

Great job. I love the gun (and the movie). I think I've got that same piece that you used for the flamethrower (a small pump-action water gun), but I've been reluctant to use it in any projects so far. I'm glad you were able to find a way to attach it without making the gun incapable of shooting permanently.

Hey Dr D, again as with the above comment, so sorry for my delayed response. Man July was a tough month. I only just loaded DA after a long break and saw your message. Well spotted on the flamethrower, that is exactly where I got it from :)

outstanding, and a worth homage. How did you mold the canister?

Check the blog link for a picture of the cannister pre-paint ;p
I went through numerous things before settling on this iced tea bottle, loved the detail in it, worked a treat.

Never been out of action, I just haven't had time to update DA ;p

Same here! Busy artists are busy!

That thing looks like it'd be a lot of fun to take up on the roof of my house in the winter when the ice dams start forming over the rain gutters. :D

WoW does it shot? *_*

Yeah you just have to take off the end piece on the barrel and it still fires as it did no problem :)
