The biggest reason this project's been on hold for so long is that I really hate the 10 round cylinder in the Nerf Barricade. This thing looks more like a tool than a gun, and the cylinder just looks out of place. I replaced it with a microfusion cell from Fallout 3. Unfortunately, my printer seemed to be out of yellow ink, so it printed a bit on the cyan side... whatever, it took me all of like 20 minutes to make the graphic in Photoshop/Illustrator, print it, and glue it to the bottom of a plastic tennis ball cannister. I might try to make a smaller one, this one is very snug. It definitely looks more like it belongs than the original dart cylinder. Let me know what you think of the MF Cell!

I love this because I never see people making cool "ordinary" scifi stuff, like tools. It's beautiful in its own industrial way.

It was a non-functioning gun, I just did it as a prop. It would be great if I could make the energy cel actually hold darts...

There's some things I want to change still, but it's looking better than it did with the cylinder.

It really looks like something a mad scientist working for DeWalt would make :)

Love it! I've got an idea for a yellow gun in my 'to do', this has just made me want to do it all the more. I feel like it should have a "CAT" logo on it lol.

Yeah this one especially looked more like a power tool than a gun. I could see it being used in something like Dead Space 3 or something.
