    Yes, it's a flashtub... I think the one in ESB was a MPP... but most people use Heiland, due to the cost.

    What did you use for barrel rings to mount the scope?

    Great kit and buildup!! You might want to get the handgrip more of a goldish brass color rather than the brown thats showing up in the pics. Other than that, It's coming along nicely

    Lookin' real good! Just add the molex connectors and brass out that grip, and you're home free. Nice painting too.

    They come with the kit.

    It looks real handsome does that. Looking at my original i'd just say the stock needs to be darker. A slightly watered GW black ink wash is what i've used.

    Wow so many kind comments, thanks, in reality though I can take no credit for this whatsoever as its a great kit from Sidewinder (:thumbup ) and yes its a 3 cell heiland, I searched and searched for an MPP but couldnt seem to nail one, the flashtube itself isnt secured in the barrel, its quite a good snug fit so if I manage to get an MPP I will swap them over, I totally agree with the colouration issues of the stock and handgrip, they are shortly to be addressed, thanks again for the comments more pics to follow in a few days and once Ive got all my greeblies

    Looking good.
    A couple suggestions...
    The grip is brass, not brown/wood.
    The head of the grip screw should be on the other side. It's a machine screw only the small tip of the end should be visible (black).
