Realized it never posted this. Zim, nope, charging cord doesn't get in the way. Though he had me put in a piddly 1S (didn't want any external battery showing) and it dies way too fast. Caveat emptor. Rekk, that is sweet. Internal shots?
Oh, made this for my girlfriend. Not part of my loadout, but it will likely feature as a prop in our games. Took a week, all PVC, paint, and a heat gun, except for the handle, which a local diesel depot had a bin of old ones for free.

Edit: Masturcief42, nope, she's on her own for that. I'm not good at 'soft' crafts like fabrics. I didn't realize that this lovely prop was as tall as she is until giving it to her, though. Hehe.

Do you have a gas mask and asbestos lined suit to go with it?

Update: I need some opinions on this color scheme.

1. Do you like the color scheme or should i sand it all down and repaint something completely different?

2. if you do like the scheme, what other sections should be painted blue? should i do a fade, dry brushing, or any other effects?

Any input is appreciated. Thanks.

I'd give it some blue highlights (Small things like buttons, fake screws, or small sections) to carry that color through. As it stands the blue is a bit isolated, and needs some main-body anchor. Also, the magwell is a lot of uninterrupted yellow. Maybe add some thick diagonal black stripes across the magwell and a few other areas for an industrial feel, and to break up color walls.

That shade of blue does not look good in large swaths, at least to my eyes, but it does go well with the yellow. In general, it is a good idea to use a colour in a consistent manner across an entire blaster. Having a large swath of blue at the front, and none anywhere else, makes the front look like it should be part of a different blaster.  If I were you, I'd paint the Nitron parts that used to be orange yellow, and then use blue to highlight details and to break swaths of yellow across the entire blaster.

The Retal barrel extension looks lopsided in this picture, but it wasn't previously. Fixing this is important if you want your blaster to look good.

Thanks for the input guys. On a side note, the blaster is disassembled here so that's why some parts look lopsided.

EDIT: I've decided to painstakingly sand the entire thing down and do a clean repaint in a new color scheme. This should be fun...

If you plan on repainting the whole thing anyway, it would be worthwhile to fill in the gaps in the Nitron shell, or at least neaten the edges. Flattened PVC works well for this. Scrap shell plastic should work well for small holes.

Here's a preview of my current project:

Also I'll be starting a youtube channel pretty soon where I'll upload videos on this blaster, my rayven/nitron (which I just finished repainting tonight), and a couple other secret projects. Once I have everything up and running I'll post the link to the new channel in my sig if anyone is interested.

Rayven/Nitron update:
just need to seal and paint the armor, add some LED's, and another rear tube holder on the left hand side.

Picked up this off-brand blaster late last year, finally got around to re-painting it. 



From my limited tests, it makes a pretty good close combat blaster, with the high capacity (20 dart) drum and easy of reloading (you can reload on the move).  One downside is the darts it comes with are shorter than nerf darts, so you can't fire regular nerf darts.
