    I'm making a prop grenade
    for the body I'm using the plastic parts from a bottle of Flonase
    I'm using some scrap wood to fill and add some weight to the body of the grenade
    the head,spoon, ring and pin I bought online from numrich

    I couldn't get the holes on the spoon to line up with holes on the head of the grenade
    so I knocked the pin out of the head that held the spring in place

    Some cutting, primer, glue and clean up on the metal parts

    How did you prep the Flonaise cap? It doesn't strike me as the kind of thing that would allow paint to stick to it.

    I have three sets of the plastic parts so I plan on doing three different versions
    for one of the versions I'm going to try something like that

    this current one I'm going to paint flat black and add some markings in white
    then add a clip to the back and maybe I'll try some weathering

    I gave it a quick sand then sprayed it with a coat of primer that bonds to plastic
    hopefully the primer and paint don't chip off later
