Having seen the Instructables plastic competition I was inspired to put in an entry and this was when I saw some of these Nerf IX-1 going cheap at the local supermarket in the build up to Christmas. I've seen a few conversions that make these toys look like real guns but one of my favourite films is District - 9 which if you havent seen it (????) feautures a lot of alien weaponry and with that, the NERF-9 was born.

To pull this one off I was going to need a fair few 3D printed parts and I've included these for download, as well as some tips I have picked up when making models that might be of use. Plus a bit of weathering and modelling and you could apply this to any Mod you might be making.

Step 1: Start With a NERF

So of course the first step is to take the thing apart, pictures taken now will help a lot when trying to get it back together again. The trigger mechanism was one that took a few attempts before I referred back to this picture, there is also a spring on the slide that you can see top left which needs to be placed back when re-assembling.
