    *Update*
    Well, I got into the machine shop this morning and managed to modify the pistol grip in way of removing the extra resin that was left behind when the clay was placed to enable the cast to be de-moulded.
    So now the grip looks and feels just the real deal...
    Once I completed that, I then drilled the holes for the trigger pivot / lower safety clip & the rear hole for the rolled pin to hold the assembly together.

    Lastly - I formed the round tube I had turned to length and this is how she looks now... I'm not 100% happy with the main body so I've thought about a new way of doing this to make it better for you all!

    Anyway enough chat... pics

    The main body (original) is a true ellipse and the way I formed this has left me with small flats on either side...

    hey gav - oh sorry we are in public - Mr Mojo-Fett sir... just stopped by to have a look at wot u are up too

    looks very nice dude!

    your worry abt the shape of the tube may be being too critical i think. In post #305 - it looks flatter as u say, but looking back at teh oblique shot on post #303 - it looks well elliptical

    btw - tahnks to you ; spent last 40 min tryin to get nice pics of this sidearm!! u are gonna be the death of me. oh and you prob got better high def ref piccies than I will ever have

    now stop teasing and offer up some of these beauts to the lads and lasses here before they die of anticipation.

    Blue?
    The pics posted are of grey primer...
    It will probably come pre primed and ready for paint, but I have some paint samples coming so who knows? but peeps will probably wanna do this themselves...
    It will come as a kit, this is mainly due to shipping over seas buddy.. better a box of bits than a assembled sidearm! I do not want any cops knocking my door?
    The kit will be easily assembled as I will pre drill all holes and all ya gotta do is tap in the split pins...

    Yah it looked blue to me too. And I see what you mean about the shape. The actual shape of the aluminum isnt what hes concerned about me thinks.

    Its the way the plastic housing is not perfectly sealed to the aluminum all the way around. I dont think anyone but you woul dhave noticed that until you spoke up.

    I think it looks amazing. Bravo.

    Yeah ok, I yield that it could look a little blue?
    Altho it is the shape of the ali that bothers me, but you are correct it was the 'seal' around the body that highlighted it to me? working on that.

    And I just wanted to be honest about it really? If I noticed it then others will too and I want this to be perfect for everyone interested...
