    Started with Ron Shanko Rock Galotti approves Morita Repro Shells. Trimmed and fitted, banded togehter and set out in sun to flex a bit and form. That;s Trooper Rocket Modeling with the shells.

    Checuked the fiberglass parts and got a KTM M37 Police, a Mini-14 reciever screen used from Art, a G&P M60 Flash hider and some various long pipe for guts. Was originally gonna hack up a M37 Feather weight but Redwolf Airsoft started selling the poilce model again.

    Very nice. You might consider replacing the screws with hex heads and you will be set!

    All in all I would give Shankos Shell a 9 out of 10, they are well done and requiredverylittle work to put things together.

    The flash hider, shotgun, and mag need to be upgraded to better parts wither cast or something a little more solid and cleaner cast....but I didn't sue them so I am gtg. If you are jsut going to make a model out of it and hand it on the wall they will be ok, but adding Matsuo or airsoft parts will make the build AND give it the weight to make it feel liek a Morita!
