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:

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...

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.

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. ;)

I also have the mid-season grips for this blaster.


OT: Here's another buildup that he did for me. DAMN Matt does some fine work. :thumbsup
