Nerf LMTD Ambab Phase-Pulse Blaster Rifle by PsyfoolRulez Customz

"Long overdue project....I was a bit underwhelemd with the Nerf LMTD Mando Amban Pulse-Phase blaster rifle out of the box...Feels a bit lightweight and also too short and stocky in the middle....But after repainting and doing some mods on it, definitely looking much better and display-worthy.....Will be going through all the mods and detailing done to this blaster in my next post....

Some have asked if I dismantled my blasters for painting....I used to do that years ago....Definitely recommended to do this as it would make painting each part easier and you can get to all the hard to reach areas....However, you need to be very careful when dismantling and make sure you take lots of photos for each step and make sure you don't lose any of the parts, especially springs and screws....Assembly will also be challenging and there were times my blasters dont work properly after putting back together....😓....So now I dont take the risk and spray my blasters in one piece, masking individual parts as I go along......More tedious but lesser risk.....😅
First off, I sanded down all the raised wordings on the blaster with rough sandpaper and then going over with a smoother grit....I also covered all the screw holes on the left side of blaster (except for battery cover)....I do this by using thin sheets of styrene to overlay the holes instead of filling them up....I find this method easier...Did this for all of the holes except for the screw hole on the round bar below the barrel...Still went with filling for that one....Then I gave the whole blaster a coat of Krylon Grey primer before painting on the various colors...I used Krylon Oil Rubbed Bronze for the dark parts, Marabu matt gold for the scope mounts, Tamiya TS-38 gun metal for the body and Marabu gloss silver for the prongs....The burnt look was achieved by rubbing Tamiya Weathering Master kit....For the barrel clamps, I used aluminium foil tape instead of painting.....It gives a much more realistic metal feel to the blaster....
Besides the paintjob, there were two mods that I had to do to improve the overall look of the blaster....First is to mod the scope...The stock scope has no lenses on either ends (a big no-no!) and has a lighted targeting sight placed at the centre....I made two mock lenses...For the front, I used dark solar film to overlay a piece of round clear plastic and glued in place....for the rear, I used a round clear lens instead...This is to allow the targetting sight to still be visible...
The next mod was to come up with the missing scope mount leg....The Amban blaster scope should have two scope legs but the Nerf blaster has only one to allow the priming slider to slide forward....This missing leg bothers me right from the beginning and I have been thinking how to do it and still allow the blaster to shoot....So in the end I came up with a simple solution by fabricating the scope leg out of 5mm PVC board and simply jamming it in between the scope and blaster body.....This piece is removable to allow the blaster to shoot but most times, it would be just for display and it can stay in place....May not be the best solution so do share if you have other ideas.....😉
