I'm going to add a layer of sealant, in part to try to take some of the shine off the brass, and the duct tape needs to be scuffed up a bit, but basically this is done. The trigger is a little sticky, but hopefully that will work loose. If I feel fancy enough to try a stencil, or if I get some mini paints to do details, I'll add the name; Vigilance.

I be not crafty

I took a day off today to mod a Nerf gun for No Rest.

13.00 - We begin

I laughably consider myself 'ready'.
13.05 - Begin wrestling with screws.
13.45 - Finally get gun disassembled

14.00 - After much consideration, decide that the mechanism in this thing is way too complicated to be worth fucking with, however much easier it is to paint the gun with the case in pieces.
14.30 - Finally get the thing back together so it fires.
15.00 - Make a frankly half-arsed job of sanding down the surfaces, taking off the logos at least.
15.20 - Finally apply the first base coat.

I am not very good at this.
