    Just finished watching the 1st season of BSG and strangely, I got the urge to pull this out of my project pile to look at. Of course, then I grabbed my knife and sandpaper and went to work.

    For the main outer shell, the only mod I did was bore out the 2 barrels. Primed, then painted with BBQ paint, rubbed with steelwool, then a coat of glossy clear which again was rubbed with the steelwool. Finally I applied silver rub n' buff to the raised edges.

    The inner pistol was painted gloss black with a bit of Rub n buff. The trigger was painted aluminum.

    The grips were painted a custom mixed brown, then a black wash. And I hand painted the gold emblems, all sealed with a satin clearcoat.

    So I present my Matsuo V1 BSG Mini Series Blaster:

    Nice weathering and a very realistic paint job. Most impressive.

    Thanks guys, I'm not an expert on this blaster, the casting of the pistol included was a 357 python that was cut down.

    Yeah, PKD, have a couple that I still need to start.

    That's one of the most realistic pain jobs I've ever seen. :thumbsup

    I wish such realism would have gone into my aging C&S...

    Sweet. Bit of history there man, that was the very first Iteration of that run.

    Superb finishing/weathering.

    I'm not really sure what the show used, the consensus was that they may have used a small frame smith or the like.
    I used a Colt python because that's what I had on hand at the time.

    Sa-weet. Have to agree, that's a helluva paint job--looks well used, but not abused :thumbsup

    I think you did a fantastic job painting that one up.

    I also have to give my thumbs-up to the work of Matsuo. :thumbsup

    He did a full build up on my BSG blaster. It's cool to see the transition from his earlier models to his newer builds.

    If you can look at the cynilder latch you could tell if it's a Colt or S&W

    I love the "series version" model that Matt built and painted for me... on top of a real airsoft. Clicky-clicky. :)

    A nicely done buildup Talisen. Your finish is extremely convincing. This is one of the best blaster designs that I've seen in a long time and had to get one of Matts kits too. :)

    ...soooo... since everyone else is doing it, here is a few pics of mine after finishing. ;)
