Nerf District 9 by meandmunch Nerf District 9 by meandmunch
Here is a District 9 inspired Nerf Raider. I didn't get crazy with propping add ons, this was primarily paint and not much else. I always thought the white and orange of the alien weapons featured in the film were very cool.

AVAILABLE FOR SALE

I like the weathering and the bright orange. Need to try painting one by myself in District 9 style.

far and away my favorite. Can it still shoot and does the cocking action scrape paint away?

What do you use to attach the torch to the tactical rail?
Cheers.

this is mean. I checked this sight like 2 weeks ago, come back, and you have a nerf DMR, an insainly badass stampeed, and now this! and the stampede and DMR are already sold!? AAHHHH!!!!! You are a cruel for showing us this and not making more! :P oh, and, does this paint stay on? cause I've painted a gun in these steps
Dissasemble
Sand down
Wash off
Then paint (just black)
and it still never stays. I am using paint for plastic, applying multiple layers in some ereas, and I'm using it with rediculas amout of care. do you do anything I don't? Thanks

Thanks, I enjoy making these. They are are selfish explorations of the genres I love like games, movies and scifi.

About the paint. The problem isn't in the application, it's in the substrate. The guns are made of a rather soft plastic. It does not matter how well the paint is bonded to it, the plastic itself is ground off the gun when its bumped or dragged across a surface and the paint simply goes with it.

Your process sounds pretty much like mine. One thing I have found and it sounds completely counter intuitive, the best base black that seems to bond the best and dry the fastest is the cheapest flat black Home Depot offers. It's like a buck a can and works beautifully. Do not waste your money on expensive brands for that base coat.

Pretty sweet looking. It's nice to see a modded nerf gun that makes good use of the original nerf colors.
