    Wow! The finished blasters are looking great!
    I'll be home from Korea on Thursday and hopefully my kit will be waiting for me. Can't wait to build mine.

    I don't think any close up pics of this have "officially" surfaced yet. I had to make do with the blown up grainy screen caps.

    Got mine done yesterday.
    It's a really easy kit to build! Big thanks to Gav for doing all that prep work.
    It just needed some basic sanding on the seams, and it was ready for paint.
    I went with Floquil Zinc Chromate primer, which is a nice reddish-brown color that sort of changes depending on what kind of light it's under. I used a plain ol' Gunmetal acrylic paint for the trigger and attached it with a small length of 4mm styrene rod, also painted Gunmetal on the ends. It's just press fit into place. I'm leaving it 'pristine' for now. I can always do some weathering later. I just like the shiny finish on the ali parts.
    Here's a couple of shots.









    All these pics were taken under the same lighting conditions, so you can see how that Floquil color really can take on a different appearance.
    What a great, rare piece to be able to add to my Fett collection! Thanks again for making these available.

    Wow! that is pristine and shiny. I like the base color. I almost hated to dirty up my aluminum parts too. They were so nice looking, but I don't think Boba would want something that shiny hanging from his battle uniform.

    Nice work SJ... am glad you like it.
    Love the colour you chose, you know you want to dirty it up!

    The base colour you have used looks the colour seen in ESB, are you planing on painting it over the base?

    KaanE, this is the final color. The name of the color is "Zinc Chromate Primer" but I'm not putting anything over it.
