Steampunk Gun Dreameater by EricTcrow Steampunk Gun Dreameater by EricTcrow
After I was happy with my sketches to begin modifying the Nerf gun, first removing the air restrictors as to get more air to the darts. Second whole lot of cosmetic changes to the basic form, such as heavily modifying the barrel area. The trigger guard, and even the trigger itself. I took off most markings that were on the Nerf gun such as the name the n-strike logo of Nerf logo and various warnings,basically giving myself a clean slate. After working on it off and on just about a year.trying to find the perfect pieces to my puzzle. Everything from the brass pipes to the copper cartridge holders even pieces for my gauges, most of them came from things I had sitting around. After a long while of trying to get it right. I finally came up with something that I liked. Then asked my friends to help me name it. Finally, was born the Dreameater.

I've modded up a few Nerf weapons and was curious about how to alter the Maverick's barrel cylinder as you've done here.

I absolutely LOVE the springs in the trigger. That, dear sir, is a fantastic touch! I will probably do something similarly inspired on a steampunk weapon I have planned in the future.

You are an inspiration!
