Artistic licence.

Which is what anyone who wishes to play the Trombone should be required to apply for.

And denied.

Last weekend I saw a Nerf Maverick and one of those N-strike rifles at a toystore. They really and I mean REALLY look plastic! You would need some serious alteration to turn it into a worthy steampunk gun. Eaven than, the rotating bullet holder thingy (don't know the technical term) is so distinctive, you almost have to dismantle, reshape and put it all together again in order to un-Nerf the gun. For about 17 euro's I was tempted to buy one, but the modifications that had to be done, were so big, I discided not to.

I can think of only a handful good Maverick mods, and all of those mods entailed serious cutting and altering of the gun, plus an ace paintjob. Starting from scratch would be quicker, cheaper and easier. Of that, I have no doubt. More satisfying also: it would look super-distinctive, and if you're spending that much time, money and effort on a project; why would you want it to contain any plastic at all??

If I would have to steampunk a nerf gun, I would take it apart and remake every component out of brass and wood. From a distance it would look like just another painted nerf, but when you look closer...  Shocked

I've found a website dedicated to nerf modifications.
This thread is about steampunk:
http://nerfornothing.blogspot.com/2010/11/nerf-and-steampunk.html
Just a question. I can't quite figure out, but does the nerf maverick have a pressurised vessel and how is this charged? Do you have to hand pump somewhere on the gun?  Huh

Your blog looks good, I like the way you built the raygun and the parts you used.

I like steampunk modded Nerf due to my being a member of the Nerf community and I dislike when the only mods on a blaster are cosmetic. I am working on changing the pruning mechanism on the maverick and its brother the spectre to use the internals of one in another steampunk gun and am also working on a wrist mounted one for when a gentleman is caught unawares during a leasurely stroll. granted the designs are easily recognized but with a bit of dremeling and epoxy you can do great things with their looks.

There's a piston behind and above the magazine drum.  You charge the toy by pulling back the cocking slide until the piston is caught, and when you squeeze the trigger a spring drives the piston forward, forcing air through a stem in the chamber.

Ah, I get it. I've also seen a video of a see thru maverick somewhere on "the tube of you". So there is no pressured vessel involved, just a piston filled with air, blowing into a a smaller diameter stem.
I've also started a thread about how to make a nerf gun from scratch.

Sir - your ray gun is a work of sheer ludicrous genius, I adore it!

Thank you Phrawgg and that is a nice looking model, although a bit fragile looking for me ( I tend to go for stocky things without too much sticking out).  Is it your design and do you plan on creating a solid handle able version?

I picked the trumpet up for £10 in a charity shop.  It was a bit battered and the only notes it could play were QRSTUVWX, so that shows just how out of shape it was.  The barrels are the inside of the valves turned round.

I actually started it because I had the handle off a toy gun and didn't want to waste it Cheesy

Of course I now have the horn, some brass tubing, a couple of drain valves (potential triggers?) and the mouthpiece to use up ...... hmmmm let me see what else I have - a half a pine shelf, a couple of feet of pine 1 by 2, three brass candlesticks, part of a brass/copper wishing well ornament, a bit of a gong and a copper wine cooler, three eps napkin rings (well squares) and four brass ones (with fancy edges) - I see a sonic cannon in the offing (ok, it'll probably not use all those bits but whatever's left will be the next project - once I get some more bits and bobs)


Anyone got any ideas on what to do with an empty trumpet case Huh




That design isn't mine.   These are my designs:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/phrawggmak/sets/72157625623796874/
I already have a thread discussing the evolution of this thing but I figured I'd just give it a brief nod here since you thought something else was mine.   The goal is to 3d render and then 3d print and CNC a real one out of aluminum, brass, and walnut.  Dunno if I want to do plastic or glass for the fuel jar.

edit: most of what I do tends to have less stuff hanging off of it as well.   The ray gun I'm designing is a departure from that but not by too much.  Too compact and it looks modern.  Too fragile-looking and it gets stupid.  And I don't think any steampunk gun should ever look completely safe to use. 

The thread for my evolving gun design is here:
http://brassgoggles.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,28311.0.html

Back to yours, you should consider taking scraps from other musical instruments, like the scrolls on violins, for instance.  Also wind instruments have all those lovely rods and hatches and valves on them.   You could have such a field day!

Here we go guys, my first steampunk prop (constructive criticism welcome).
You guys probably remember reading about the Victorian zombie infestation in school. Well this is one of the weapons that was designed to deal with that. The sights are removable and interchangeable because we all know that only the head shot counts.

Very nice gun. I found it funny that as I read your post I just happened to be holding the same exact round part that you used in the sight in the first picture. Mine is destined to become goggles, however.

An excellent combination of previously disparate parts into a coherent whole.

Finally, I have completed my first attempt to build a steampunk weapon ^^


(see http://thecoconutguy.deviantart.com/art/Tesla-Disintegrator-Blaster-196293779 for a larger picture)


THE ANACHRONISTIC TESLA DISINTREGATOR BLASTER No. 122
=====================================================

This blaster is an advancement in the field of high energy ray weapons. The amplifyed severety of the emitted ray is so powerful that a target trapped within the ray is burned to ashes in a mere second. This blaster can also be used to melt down steel plates up to 12 inches thick. The ray itself can be adjusted to radiate in a larger radius, but with losses in performance. A simple pressing of a button switches the ray from "death" to "stun", for those targets that need to be taken out alive for later questioning.

The blaster is powered by standard energy cells that can be attached quickly and easily to the blaster, decreasing reload-time.
It was commisioned by the British Secret Service in 1898, but the prototype was stolen and the plans offered for sale on the black market. Still, it is rarely seen in the New British Aetherial Territories, and if you do have the chance to see one eye-to-eye, here's hoping you are on the right side of the gun barrel.


MAKING OF
=========

Would love to hear your comments on this. ^^
