    I am trying to diversify my movie weapon collection and it was crying for a Star Wars entry.

    So I knocked this little puppy out from a $10 spring-powered Mauser from the flea market, $15 worth of Marko resin bits (plus shipping), and some stuff I had laying around.

    Other side needs some work and it is begging for a paint/weather job. It also shoots like crap (curveball effect, as one might expect from a true POS gun). But hey, better than nothing, right?!

    Besides weathering, you should add a few coats a paint over the plastic body to hide the fact that it is a plastic body. You should really fill in those screw holes too. It would really help the overall affect.

    After some filling (that barrel would be my first stop) , sanding and painting, that would look really nice!
