    This doesn't really fit into any particular fandom. I took a Nerf Falconfire and modded it.

    I cut down the barrel shroud, inserted metal weights into the interior, made a custom muzzle brake out of Lego bricks! :)

    And then painted it.

    Currently, only one side is really finished. I tried to coat it with a clear coat but it messed up the finish on the side that I applied it and I decided to stop there because I had already painted it so many times and didn't want to do it again. I still have one good side left.

    I used two-part modelling putty to set and fit the muzzle brake. If anybody knows what kind of glue/cement to use with nerf plastic, feel free to enlighten me! (y)

    Nerf guns are made from ABS plastic, the same thing as LEGOs. a little acetone will soften the plastic and allow you to press together the parts for a permanent bond. So you'd basically be plastic welding. You can try that next time if you like.

    Anywho, looks cool! I like your weathering, it looks pretty legit!
