Firefly's Vera Project WIP by JohnsonArmsProps Firefly's Vera Project WIP by JohnsonArmsProps
Just about done, just trying to figure out how to make a riser for the scope. Bullets were stand-ins for the ones being painted. Should have it done this weekend, but I wanted to show it to some of the browncoats for their approval :)

OK, how did you get the Stampedes 18 clip to;
1) look like that.
2) does the mag work without jamming?


It looks pretty sweet, Its a really nice job overall.

you make a cut at whatever angle works for ya and then flip on piece and then you just find a good way to rejoin the pieces. I used birch wood...which leads to question #2..no? hehehe This was a prop and not really intended to ever be shot

glad you like the look, I had my concerns before I did it :)

Well when I originally got my stampede the two clips that do not allow you to see the dart count jam all the time, I figured that after the 18rnd drums come on the market, I'll scrap them and do something similar to this, but make them look more like AK-47/74 Mags and attempt to make them work too. (the amount of time for a project like this though would be unbelievably ridiculous), Though If you got yours looking like that, I would think there would be a way to add functionality as well.

Thanks, I figured it would be either be a really cool design or a moster flop...glad it wasn't the flop, hehe.

Beautiful work! You know, you could just make a simple off-set mount, off to the side instead of raising the scope up, that's what I would do. I think it would be a lot more aesthetically pleasing :)

Got a Jayne cosplay to go with this, or is it just for the heck of it?

Ah, gotcha. I just wondered if you randomly woke up one day and said, "Hm, I should do Vera. Because I can." Or something.
