Got my kits last week, very happy. Now I just need to find time to complete the build.

Received my two kits earlier this week. All the pieces look great, and the decals are a nice touch.

Will make a nice upgrade for my water pistols. Well worth the wait! Many thanks, sir :D

Sent you a PM earlier about my deluxe kit order that, according to the shipping notice I received, should have been here 2 weeks ago. Any update on status is appreciated.

I'll try to get the wiring diagram posted tonight. Still working on the full instructions doc.

Hey Soulinertia, don’t know if this has been asked before but does your ammo box fit the Tomenoskue bullets?

Not sure if the Tomen rounds will fit the box, they look like they would fit, but I can't confirm for sure. If anyone who bought an ammo box has a tomenosuke, let us know.

At this point all kits have been shipped. I've been experimenting with some new grip variants:

This one changes color depending on the way the light hits it: https://www.instagram.com/p/Bf1MPpOj8Gl/?taken-by=fatal5150

Can you order a deluxe kit without the grips? I already have a pair of those from a few months back.

Gotta say, I'm very happy with how these grips turned out. Beautiful cognac coloring and after vacuum casting almost no bubbles!

Hi. Are these upgrade grips exactly the same size and fit as the originals that came with the water pistol. If so can I buy an amber set

@jugnor

Here is the diagram to wire up the LEDs in parallel:



You really don't need a resistor for each LED, but for those that got the deluxe kit it is already built in. If you got the basic kit then you would just put a single resistor between the negative battery holder lead and the first LED.

I have 2 different grip styles. One cast from the original grips (exact fit) and the newer Tomenosuke style grips that will fit a Tomen or on the watergun with a slight space above the base plate. I prefer the Tomen grips myself because they are a little thinner and the bolt holes are cast into the grip rather than having to drill them out, however they do require a little more mod work for a perfect fit. You can buy them through my website here: http://www.fatal5150.com/apps/webstore/

Just specify which type you want with your order. :cheers

Thats great thanks. I have just looked on your website and I can only see the solid version grips. I am after a set of the exact fit amber grips so please advise how to order via your website.
cheers

OIC, Yeah I only offer solid resin grips.

Oh ok cheers. Are they something you could perhaps produce though?
It would be quite difficult to achieve the desired results with a transparent slush cast and no bubbles. It would also be much more fragile. Also I don't think very many people want thin shells for grips. Most are going for the solid resin. Cutting away the existing plastic on the water gun with a dremel isn't too difficult and the overall appearance of the solid resin grips yields a much richer look.
