Yours are looking great so far silverskyes402! If I might make one small suggestion in the name of accuracy: The screws I've circled below are flipped the wrong way around. On the trigger, the head of the screw should be underneath the trigger, and on the wrist brace, the screw head should be on the inside.
Yea, I decided to switch those screws around as it shows some more detail on the outside when displayed, when it's worn you can't see the small screws on the activation paddle, just a little different
Could I also ask how you managed to insert the recessed barbed tube holder? I can't seem to get pliers or anything to fit down in that hole.
I actually drilled the hole out a little larger than the brass fitting and used some CA and just glued it in, there was no way to be able to screw one of those in in such a small space.
I ended up using magnets to attach the pieces to the band, I cut small strips of black nylon webbing from an old backpack and used fabric glue, which worked very very well, and inserted the magnetic plates under the black webbing.
Here are some pics of the finished piece (I say finished, but I still have couple screw details and need to weather the red band, I would also like to make one of the structure plates look a little more like aged brass, like the screen used piece). But this is where it stands now, still need to finish the other one.
