    I could have bought the up to $400.00 blasters. However, I was able to have dirt
    blemishes airbrushed on the toy blasters. These pictures are not as detailed as I would like them to be. If you saw them up close in person, you can see the fine details. I should have better pics in a week or so. . . . What ya think guys? Be honest! I have thick skin. When I think of air-brush - - - I think of the sort of cheesey Red Neck art college kids get on their Tee-Shirts when they visit Panama City Beach or Ft. Lauderdale during spring break. Ha ha ha!






    Ok ! I know . . This is my attempt at cheesey art direction! But hey! The background is cool.

    You have an advantage over me, your blasters are light weight. My stitching on my holsters broke loose this past weekend from the weight of my 34's. I've worn my holster and my boots out over the past 2 years. Besides someone picking them up, yours look just like the more expensive versions...very nice.

    Great job.

    I have a blaster question and I hope you don't mind me asking here. I have a white trooper blaster and I want to seperate the 2 halves. There are plastic rings on both ends of the scope and I was wondering if there is a way to remove them without breaking it.

    Thx.

    No, you will have to cut the rings off using a hacksaw or dremel. Can I ask why you want to seperate it?

    Nice job on weathering. Just have one suggestion. I have both Rubies and a pair of the MR blasters and the handgrips on the MR are silver metallic not light blue metallic. The way the silver metallic looks, you could use your basic silver metallic spray paint and paint the grips silver then weather that part again. I assume the MRs were based off the originals as they claim.
