    Re: My next project

    Got the slots drilled and dremeled (could be cleaner, but hey this IS my first attempt)

    Now onto the second one and getting the resin parts primered and put onto the tube.

    Thanks for the comments Chucko!

    Here is the unweathered finished version... they would have worked better had I had access to a drill press instead of just a hand drill, lol

    Hey that's coming along nicely. The slots down the side of the barrel look uneven but like you said it was your first attempt. Are you going to do a run?

    Although the barrel isn't entirely metal as the muzzle tip and power cell portions are from the resin kit, I'd be interested in a run... pending on price.

    I've always wanted to match a metal barrel to my resin handles.

    Re: My next project

    Yeah, I'd love to do a run once I perfect them, but I would need resin kits of the emitter and power cells as well as the handles, and since I have never molded it would be interesting, lol... plus recasting these would not be good

    I need to get a picture with the weathering, they look good, can't really tell the resin from the metal that much now

    Re: My next project

    If I take care of the handles, emitter and power cell ends, what would you charge for just the barrels?

    I've got two unused resin kits at a buddies house... he's been saving them for me.
