It's almost done..... I can hardly wait to start putting this thing together. When you get this far into the project it never goes fast enough. It doesn't help that it is so cold outside. It is hard to paint so I have to use a blow dryer to help the paint cure faster. Well enjoy, B) Brian B)

For those of you who do not know, I made a grave mistake in painting the barrel. Here is the last post off my other board. I was just a tad upset yesterday.

:D Greetings to all, :D
Well after a great session with my therapist. She told me that remember it is just plastic and wood, go to your happy place. I stood up and pulled out my blaster and let her have it. No I did not shoot her, I let her have it. She said just get over it and repaint it, then she handed my blaster back to me and said that will be $100.00. Well I am not totally satisfied with the repaint but it will have to do, I can always build another one if I want :angry PERFECT.... :angry Go to happy place-go to happy place. Here are a couple of pics to tide you over till I finish this thing by Friday.
Enjoy,

Well here is the almost completed mag. and small clip for my blaster. It was interesting to try and come up with stuff to make this look close. Here is a resin mag. and clip for comparison. I made my clip even smaller than the resin one.

I AM GETTING PRETTY CLOSE.



I have desided to build a second one when I have completed this one. I am going to correct all the mistakes I made on this one. There are at least 6 that have found so far. Thanks for all the support and praise. Jedidad

Here are a couple of detail pieces for under the scope to hide the mounts. I made them out of a for sale sign and some .99 tank tracks. I super glued them to the styrene sign.
