Hi guys, I've made a few appearances here asking questions, and looking for stuff to buy. I've almost got everything together, so I thought I'd give it a start. I thought I'd share with you all my progress. Hopefully, this will be quite a picture intensive log, so bear with me.
I know a lot of people don't want you to criticise projects, but in my case, please do. I really want to make this good first time round, and I don't mind a bit of extra work. I love criticism, especially negative criticism, as it helps me to know what I've done wrong, or could do better next time. I honestly think all kinds of criticism help with a project, so flame on.
I started with a pair of Rubies Blasters. I bought them off e-bay for about $20 (£11)
I sanded off all the raised text, sanded off the fake screws and replaced with old screw heads, filled all the gaps and sanded to perfection, removed the battery cover screws and blocks, removed the orange caps, and cut off the ledge that held them, and finally scratch built a trigger guard for the right blaster. I then primed them, and after a few trials, got them how I wanted them.
I sprayed the inside barrel part, and muzzle rim gold, and rub-n-buffed the rest. Just how shiny can you get rub-n-buff?
Still waiting on my friend's dremel tool so I can start work on the fiberglass JD armour (Thank you, sir)
I'm also still short of a set of gauntlets (trying to get a hold of Man of War), gloves (large) Jet Pack, and jumpsuit(large-XL). If anyone knows of some going, please let me know.
