Nerf Vortex Proton Fallout PIP-Boy gun prop by GirlyGamerAU Nerf Vortex Proton Fallout PIP-Boy gun prop by GirlyGamerAU
This is another homage to the Fallout universe using the Nerf Vortex Proton as a base. I went with a simplistic look here, gunmetal, detailing and a rusted / dirty grip. It took longer to do than it looks lol.

Full Write-Up here.

I'm well impressed. Both your and Meow's work really blow my mind. I just finished some more Borderlands inspired sidearms. A proton and another Maverik. Still nothing like what you guys are doing but there's been definite improvement

I really like your stuff. I've only just started modding and I'm not great at it. What paints do you use? do you use spray paint? I'm finding spray paint to be a bit of a PIA and I'm curious what other people are using. I'm working on a series of Borderlands1/2 inspired weapons. You can check out my first effort at a Hyperion Conference Call inspired Maverik

I use both sprays and hand detailing. Looking forward to seeing what you do.

Nice work! I bought a Proton to customize too. I've never modded a Nerf before. Did you sand down the surface? Did you tear down completely? I took mine apart to see what I was going to deal with. Didn't seem too crazy. Thanks!

Sorry must have missed this... Yes always start by sanding the entire thing. I didn't take this all apart, just the nose.

If you're just painting the proton, you don't need to pull the entire thing apart. You can just unscrew the front bit that sits over the slide.

What part? Sorry hard to tell what you mean. Once you remove the 'nose' you'll see the next step is literally to take it all apart as the next lot of screws are all the side ones holding both halves together. If you do take it ALL apart, take a LOT of reference photos with your camera / camera phone as it will make it MUCH easier for you to put it all back together :)

Yeah I found one and converted it to vector art a while ago to use on stuff. I meant I like the placement of it. :p

That looks so damn cool. How long did it take you to paint it?

:icongirlygamerau:
GirlyGamerAU Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2012
Longer than it looks lol. It took a few days, but obviously only visiting it for a few hours, maybe 5 all up, but a fair chunk was working on the decal work on the computer.

Sorry? If you mean do I make these with other people?.. No, just me in my spare time. If you mean do I have a few one the go at the same time, then yes.

So, you work alone and yet you're able to do more than one on one go. That's just amazing! :wow:
