    I'm lookin' for resin kit, a finished one, what ever.
    I want to get one and not get squashed like a bitty bug with bad castings and poor quality.
    Can anyone help me spend my hard earned alliance credits?

    Philippes is who you seek, young Browncoat. I don't know if he is still making them, but from what I've seen and heard, his are the finest.

    You seek philippes. His is the best I've seen. Cast directly from the screen-used piece.

    I bought mine from him, & I couldn't have been happier with it.

    I haven't had a chance to work on it yet though...

    EDIT: yeah what he said.

    Looks like I might have a chance to do some damage to one of Phillipes resin Mal pistols. And thanks to Tristan over at FIREFLYFANS.net, I got some painting ideas. But any more help would be good help.

    Anyone have any rattle can painting suggestions for me?
    I was thinking a few coats of primer and of flat black,
    A few coats of brass and/or antique bronze,
    And a final coat or two of flat black.
    Then liberal use of sandpaper & steel wool
    And topped off with a clear coat of matt enamel.

    Though that does not cover the the wood grip.
    I'm not sure how to tackle that.
