I just finished, well almost, my latest commissioned Nerf gun. Another Hammershot for another Dark Prospects player.
This time I was told it was an old service revolver and it should look kind of beat up.
Since it was supposed to be a standard issue I went with a simple look. The whole thing is one kind of metal. For the weathering I had originally thought about trying to make dents or something. Eventually I decided that wasn't really feasible and went with a slightly rusty look.
Since the Nerf logo on the Hammershot is in a really annoying place to sand I tried something new for dealing with it. Instead of grinding it out with my not-a-dremel I cut a couple pieces of foam to fit over it and then made some 'rivets' with globs of hot glue.
Time to wrap the handle and deliver it to it's owner.
