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

    Painted mine up using the same primer Superjedi posted, polished up the main body with metal polish, and gave the painted parts a slight weathering. Not sure whether to drybrush some metallic to simulate paint erosion or not.

    Here she is, the little beauty!

    Got in my original Technisub Pulce today (thanks to a board member here at TDh who I will allow to annouce himself if he wishes to be known) and did a comparison to my Mojo-Fett replica just to see how our good friend did.

    Rejoice!

    For those frustrated by the rarity of the original Pulce spearguns, you can breathe a sigh of relief, because Gav's replica is as close as you will EVER get without owning an original. I can even interchange parts between the two! I will have photos up in the next week (stupid lighting is in Vegas, not here) comparing the two, but Gav really outdid himself on this replica!

    Got mine yesterday, Finally!

    Anyway, great looking piece, can't wait to get it built. So with that said, how is everyone opening the diameter at the back end of the resin handle in order to screw in the aluminum retainer section? Drill, X-acto, File?

    THX Again Gav for doing these, Great Work!

    Not being a expert at this i used a buck knife and a dremel with a round sanding head. Took a little time but it came out real good.
    Also had to sand down the base to get the threads to catch.

    Here's a couple of completed pics. Just a couple.
    Hey Seeker,

    How did you paint this up? Is the silver an undercoat? Did you use rub'n'buff or some other topical treatment?
