    Okay, large update here:

    I needed a way to hold everything together nicely so i decided to use the brackets i sanded off as actual brackets.

    Also the rear bracket.

    Nice!

    And started working on the barrel bracket and vents (almost as bad as sanding...). Note the new nice long barrel. The front gun will not ever be used as it was intended so... why not :)

    Opps! Got home very late/early and dropped it on its ass. Its a nice clean break where i dremeled everything down to fit the rear of the gun. Ah well, on the upside its gonna be tough as nails after i finish with it.

    Close to getting a coat of paint i think :)

    Cheers.

    Im planning to epoxy (a tiny amount will do) the bits together then go over it with fiberglass.

    Also as im out of the chopped mat ill have to do a lunchtime run down to the local supplier.

    *sigh* More work...

    Ok the repairs are almost done. Just need bondo over the top. I might actually put a little bit of fiberglass then sand it back for more strength.

    5568991779_35d6041c46_z.jpg

    Im a little worried about how low the barrel is in relation to the shroud but if it looks odd, ill build it up a little bit. No worries :D

    Ah!! Its sooo close to being finished!

    Quick update:

    Joining the metal bits together so there is something solid holding it together, and that will come appart when needed. Also note the lipo low voltage warning buzzer with the 2 LEDs lit.

    Filled in the gap.
    5575556129_952744254c_z.jpg

    I have all the screws and bits to add to it now, its just a matter of gluing nuts underneath the brackets.

    Another profile shot :)

    Waste not want not. Ill use the bits left over to create a steampunk style pistola. Also paint for practice.

    Update:

    Ok so apparently some dodgey place (No names) sold me a 7.4v battery instead of an 11.1v.. so the results were worse than the original voltage.

    Update:

    Started working on all the brackets and metal inserts so i can actually screw it together and fix it in place. Templates cut, now just need to cut the aluminium.

    Cheers.

    Ok fiddly update! Grr so many little things for this to work.. Anyway, the templates were cut, transfered to the aluminium, cut out and smoothed. And now ive been adding them to the correct areas for load bearing, which is harder than i thought as the screws go through into areas i need for clips :D

    Anyway here is the barrel assembly and base plate. This will have right angle brackets on the underside to screw to the grenade launcher:
    5633925704_d6a086724a_z.jpg

    Im going to build the top up with epoxy sculpt and glue a small plate on top to even it all out:
    5633342349_81e153216f_z.jpg

    Rear bracket and plate:

    5633341823_071157bb40_z.jpg
    5633925064_4d26d80a29_z.jpg

    Front bracket and plate:
    5633925376_3c7f0a4ab9_z.jpg

    Side mounting points:
    5633925628_f1cdb64bc2_z.jpg
    5633342077_b8152b9b07_z.jpg

    Ah... and so next i will be working on trimming the bolts so they dont foul any of the internals. There will also be another front load bearing plate connected to the underside of the shroud... as usual more to come :)

    Cheers.

    Ok post-easter update:

    I have been working on all the shitty little bits that take alot of time to make and fit. All the brackets are now working to hold the grenade launcher solid to the nerf gun. See below holding it by the shroud. *grin* There was a photo of me shaking it but.. well it didnt turn out very well lol.
    5678311989_c3194ba1ab_z.jpg
    5678870964_e58b309cdd_z.jpg

    Next to trim the bolts so they fit flush and then work on the clip. I have to glue it togehter and make certain it still fits flush.

    Cheers.

    Quick update:

    Ok so ive been roped into a 5v5 nerf game on the weekend so i thought i would use the cut down Stampede as a side arm :D Mac10 baby! See below for new spring goodness. You cant really see the range as i was shooting at a wall but it went from one side of the site (15m) to the other with almost no drop. I think ill have to check out the range...



    Cheers.

    That looks briliant!! It has a very big drawback, the darts are smaller than the nerf ones unfortunately. :(

    Ok so i field tested the cut down stampede over the weekend at a 5v5 nerf game and it ran so well! It did jam once tho, but at that stage the ammo was a problem :D After some major runs i decided to guard our flag.

    Dual wielding a full stampede and the cut down one was magic :D (You can only hear the full ones fire sound but you can see the darts swarm when im firing hehe)
    also here

    Epic run! :)


    Cheers.

    Long overdue update! :)

    Grenade launcher is attached on 2 mounting points on both sides.

    5738592912_355e0ceccf_z.jpg

    The Nerf recon is way too large and the wrong shape to fit unfortunately... Time to rethink this. I really want something that has a few shots that pump loads.

    5738593594_e1800288c3_z.jpg

    The top plate for the barrel to sit on is done and looks nice :)
    5738592636_2ccca96021_z.jpg
    5738042095_bae3cdc2ea_z.jpg

    Next up is mounting the barrel to the plate and epoxy sculpting everthing so its flush.

    For those that are interested, this is what i was rocking during my first nerf game :) (Second game i had this as well as a modded longshot!)

    Just thought I'd bump this because maybe you didn't see it, but this missile can get some good distance and it's close enough to a grenade right?
