    Thanks Gamer! Glad you like!

    Irish, take your time, I'm not rushing it at this point. I failed to realize this is a holiday weekend.
    Coupled with how well my last runs have gone, I WAS a bit surpirsed with the small reaction, but am now content to wait a bit more while we all enjoy the start of summer (that's what I get for sitting in a basement all day!). I'm also content to sit and finish off my Ghostbuster costume for Marcon here in Ohio this weekend! I'll be around, talk soon gang!

    Looks great. How does the foam fit into this? I could see the rubber gun, but would foam look rigid enough like a solid surface?

    The rubber is an outer skin that 's brushed onto each ahlve of the mold. After about 15-30 minutes, its expands a little, and the foam is poured into the assembled mold. If it didn't have the support bar, yea, it'd be pretty floppy.

    Oh, ok! So the outside of the blaster is rubber and the inside is foam filled with a support bar, making the gun a solid piece. I see now, thanks!

    Yep, I'll be doing that one IF this one's a fair success, and after the master comes outta the mold. No silicone today I hate that, cause not only is this project underway, but a new Proton Pack kit, and a few last Scout Blasters . . .this hasn't been a good week for props in my house, but hey, the weekend's here! Whoo!

    First paint test. I've got the scope cast and pulled, and am very, very happy with how it's come out. Cleanup was straightfrward, and the lines are underneath the scope.
    This scope is made out of resin for my own 'wall hanger.' This started as a mid grey, then primed black, misted with grey primer, then drybrushed lighter. I then hit it with a coat of semi gloss, and added the rust. Lastly, I did the gold, silver, and black chips.

    What's really fun, is peek into the scope, and a small reticle decal's hiding in there. Though you guys would like that detail.

    Hope this get's you guys fired up some more!
    Thanks!

    Finsihed my rifle this morning.
    As much trouble as pouring resin into a mold designed for foam was, I'm very happy to have one of these. Aw who am I kidding . . .I carried it around and 'shot' everything in the house!!

    I'm now very confident on moving forward with the buildups, so anyone whose interested, you've been PM'd, and I hope we can get all 15 spots filled!!!
    Thanks!

    Gald you guys are excited about an ESB too! I'm gearing up for the start of these, so be sure to get your money in, and if you haven't responded to my group PM that went out, be sure to post here or PM weather or not you're in.
    I also expanded this to the RPF, so 15 is the number we're shooting for.

    Thanks!!
