Hey guys

find yourself a low priced Nerf Recon gun. i found mine on amazon for about £25

find a picture of which halo sniper rile you would prefer i used 2 pictures to make a hybrid sniper rifle. -as shown below-

next you want to go down to your local hardware store to pick up a few things to make your sniper rifle
26032010290.jpg

this includes
1 hollow pipe
1 pipe that fits down the nerf barrel
1 think metal rod that is easily bent
and a few other bits and pieces that could make the scope etc
ok now onto making it

first you will want the pipe that fits down the barrel - like so
26032010291.jpg

you will want to use strong glue like araldite and a instant mega grip glue gun to secure the pipe inside the nerf gun.

After you have done this you will want to get the hollow pipe, now get a long one so you can decide how long you want your barrel to look. after you have decided you will want to slip the hollow barrel onto the think one. like so

again you will want to secure this barrel onto the thick rod.

ok next is the lower part of the rifle. again you will need a think small rod that will fit into the light/laser part of the nerf (i drilled a hole to make it easier and more stable for the rod)

as you can see i found a little piece from the hardware store that looks similar to the lower part of the rifle

i did a little work with the think bendable rod so when it was ready i could attach it

i decided to move onto the painting before making more pieces -note remove the magazine clip before painting- also i modified the stock by cutting out some wood and fitting it in to make the stock more halo like

i used the Chaos Black spray can that you get for Warhammer 40k
After that i used the Boltgun metal paint that is also bought for Warhammer 40k models
using i dry brush method i tried to make the rifle look sort of realistic

Next i worked on the scope
im sorry before hand that i barely have any pictures i forgot to take some
what i did was get some wood and drew out the rough shape of the scope - after cutting it out and sanding it down i made a small frame with little parts of wood to hold it together then decided to use duck tape to fill it out

after making that i attched it to the rifle with araldite and Green stuff (Warhammer 40k resin)

as i said earlier the thin bendable metal rod attached

06042010318.jpg


Next i wanted to make the barrel end
using the same method as the scope with wood and a small frame but with one different part. i used Green stuff to mold the end to look like the barrel as shown
25052010382.jpg

25052010383.jpg

25052010384.jpg


after that i attached some pieces to make it look more like a barrel end.
26052010385.jpg

27052010387.jpg


the sight piece i just took off the nerf gun and the barrel end piece from a hardware store
now for the painting

base colour

painted
27052010390.jpg

27052010391.jpg


now you will want to make a whole to fit the barrel so there no chance of it being knocked off

and now for the finished product
