    Had the pleasure of painting one of these bad boys a few weeks ago...beautiful piece Mojo. Hopefully I can still get one in the coming weeks.

    Unfortunately there is no real reference of the gun out-side the holster, so most of the color/weathering is left for the imagination.

    Just awesome. Looking forward to painting it.

    Nice job Spidey!
    Is that bronze and graphite used for weathering the metal parts? I like the look of it.

    Very nice paint up on the barrel Alex, will need to tap you up on techniques?
    I will have a couple made per request this weekend but after that the run starts to dry up...

    Hi Gav

    Forgot to mention I got mine a few days ago too...Lovely piece of work.. thx man...

    Regarding the paint scheme, Humbrol do not do one that even comes close, however, after days of hunting I have found Plasti-Kote Red Oxide... it's perfect!!

    Will paint mine up over the weekend...

    Spidey... luv ya paint scheme bro... awesome!

    Re: ESB correct sidearm interest topic

    I was just reviewing this thread and forgot to share pics of my ESB pistol… The paint job is slightly idealized and the trigger and pins were not installed when I took this pic. If I recall I just used primer red, which I think is a little bit off. I’ve been going through the Floquil colors and think there are one or two that may be closer to the screen used color. I may end up repainting it, if I find the time. The other blaster in the pic is one of the Bespin security blasters (cast off of a screen used one).

    Re: ESB correct sidearm interest topic

    Ok folks, here's my first coat of Red Oxide.... need to wait 15 mins between each coat.... Once fully coated, i'll start with the first layer of weathering on the grip to add dark weathering...
    Then onto the main Ali barrel afterwards using gunmetal...
    Stay tuned...

    Re: ESB correct sidearm interest topic

    Will post a few updates on Sunday, gonna give this base colour at least 24hrs to dry solidly, then i'll spray on the black (very lightly) and then dry brush with silver....

    May use a little bit of Gold too.... may as well bling it up...let's face it, the blaster has never been out of the holster..... lol

    I'm gonna use gunmetal spray on the Ali barrel and then use steel wool to give an added weather effect... (well that's the plan...)

    Re: ESB correct sidearm interest topic

    OK folks, I applied some gunmetal spray to the grip and this is what it looks like now...
    What do you think? Big change from the initial base layer?
    Have also sprayed the Ali barrel and muzzle... (may rub off a bit more paint though... lol)
    I just have the trigger to add and some light dry brushing and that it.....
