    Yep - this is a repost from the GT boards, but oh well...

    This was really my first attempt at painting anything. Let me know what you think - be honest!

    For both blasters I used various spray paints and Rub 'n' Buff on the DL-44.

    First I turned this "Rebel Alliance Blaster" (DL-44) :

    Into this:

    I still plan to add to lenses for the scope (dark tinted).


    The "Rebel Trooper" blaster (DH-17) is still a work-in-progress, but this is how it looks so far:

    Before:

    After (so far) :

    Not sure why the matte black looks bluish-green in those pictures...It looks black in person.

    Here's what the MR looks like:

    I had to sand down the "Star Wars" logo on the side. It's alittle scratched up where it used to be, but better than before. I used matte black and glossy black (like on the MR blaster).

    I plan to add a d-ring to the back, paint the ejection port silver, and redo the emitter (bondo it to make it all look like one piece, so the tip doesn't look like a seperate piece. Repaint it silver, then sand it lightly, then go over it with Rub N Buff to give it a nice aluminum look)

    I sure hope its not to cold on parade day for you to march Annie.

    That's one hot costume. Can't wait till I get to do Shaak Ti. . .

    And I love your Clone Danny, I guess I'll have to start calling you Clone Trooper Danny insted of Jedi Danny, lol. Both you guys rock!

    Wow, don't call the guy out on the pet names his girl gives to him Tony, or maybe, just maybe, someone may find out who gets called "Cutie Fett" while I'm over the house. *hint* it ain't me =)

    Grats on the Aayla costume, it really does look awesome! Now if only I had the time, the money and ...... the money...

    Oh Hell No! I have no interest in seeing you in a Aayla Secura costume. Save that crap for Tony.[face_talk_hand]
