box art that was floating around in the Summer of 2011. Since the Whiteout Series has filtered its way off of Wal-Mart shelves, I just assume that this was a limited run for the 4 blasters that we got... so it was up to ME to create what I needed for this project.
Reproducing the Whiteout Logos wasn't a must for this project, so when I couldn't come up with any good ideas to accurately replicate them just yet, I decided to just make a white blaster with details that way if I did decide to go for it, I'd have a canvas ready and waiting. Still, the white-painted Spectre looks GREAT for this winter project of mine! It goes great with the Super Soaker accessories from the LightingStorm and Shot Blast as well as the Longstrike Barrel extension and Stampede folding bipod.
The pictures turned out nice and I like the way it turned out, but the one thing that's still kind of missing is that "pop" that Nerf Plastic has. The white paint is as white as it'll ever get, but there's a "glow" to the colors in the plastic Nerf uses that normal Krylon Fusion paint can't achieve. Up Close you can kind of see the difference, but from an observer's perspective, it looks spot-on. If anyone has found a way to match the hues in the plastic of Nerf Blasters, let me know as I can always make things more accurate!
