    So after spraying the dog with the blaster, i removed the water cap on the scope (pops off)
    then used my dremel to drill the holes in the muzzle (lazy people could just paint the holes black)
    and then sanded all the star wars and licencing mumbo jumbo off the gun with a rough sandpaper
    ,then a light go over with a fine sandpaper. Easy stuff.

    Covered the muzzle in masking tape to keep the silver safe
    then painted the rest of the gun matte black.

    After dry brushing the edges in silver and coating the muzzle in black and
    scrubbing it off in another attempted at weathering, i think it turned out ok for a 4 water gun and under 2hrs of work.

    Looks good! "DL-44C : compact repeating blaster"

    I always like seeing toy repaints, especially when they come out like this

    I have the Nerf gun version. The receiver is a little big to accommodate the darts but im going to paint it and detail it.

    Looking good. I would probably have filled the holes in the flash hider before painting.
