  1. Arigato Tino! The grip screw is set rather deep and I will try to replace that. The screw was one my dad gave me so thought to use it for this blaster but guess the threaded shaft is a bit short. I can use my resin casted part for this. The bolt paint could probably use some more work but I will leave it for now. The T tracks pretty much fit nicely after I shaped them but there was still some spacing issues. So I wrapped some tape around them all so they were squeezed flush to the receiver and then placed the blaster in my heated shower stall for about 30-40 minutes. It helped
  2. Progress pics: Base sterling finished with some minor weathering, bolt painted & installed. Inner barrel is just black PVC pipe. The grip and the bolt charging handle are the original raw cast color. Bolt is painted with Mr. Hobby dark iron and chrome silver metallic paints. Hand brushed and then rubbed to a dull shine. Also added a light layer of black wash paint from Tamiya. The end cap photo shows the wrinkle paint pattern well. I could not get the same wrinkle pattern across the entire receiver but it added some character to the blaster and made it easier to attempt
  3. Congratulations Natalie! Have a great time! Honored to have you join the TK ranks!
  4. Looking great! I love how the helmet is coming out. If I ever get a chance I want to try this with a BS helmet if I can buy one still.
  5. Nice progress! The little details can sometimes take long to get right. For the scope screws, you are correct to have the 3 screws sitting above. the 2 slotted heads are actually recessed or sitting behind that mounting disc on the real scopes. So you could sink them in a bit more. Also the real scopes had a black filler on those 2 holes so on most real scopes the 2 slotted heads are not visible. You don't have to replicate that black filler but just showing it for reference. For the stock, that is a tricky area to clear out and get the inner parts reveal look. I
  6. The stock looks nice! Well done hollowing it out. Glue it in for sure if it rattles but wait to do this as Tino pointed out. It would be a difficult task to get even coats of paint in those hard to reach areas.

  8. Nice work so far. For the grip side screw, I like things to be turnable. If the screw already sits fairly snug and you can turn it then that is good. If it is a bit loose you could drill a wider hole and insert a tube that you can tighten the screw into .
  9. This blaster came out stunning! Excellent work!
  10. Cool! Looking forward to this build. Seeing a Doopy kit these days is quite rare. And you have Tino's completion set to top it off. Good thing you have not lost any parts during your moves. There are so many fun mods you can do to make this kit look top notch. Best of luck. Will be following.
  11. Here is how it came out. Not great, I didn’t get the wrinkles I was looking for. I think I need to try using this paint in a wind free environment. Purposefully left the magazine housing masked off to keep the text visible and create a worn tapered off look. The power cylinders will be mounted on top anyway so I guess it really doesn’t matter too much. I will paint a little more on the sides of the housing, the sight guard and the sides of the rear sight.
  12. Sadly the results came out more like test 1. I can try again with another coat but worried it will not look good. The problem was also the wind which probably caused the paint spray to dust more and not evenly coat the tube. It requires a good thick 3 layers I think. oh well live and learn. I will let it dry fully and do a little weathering. I left some of the smaller attached parts masked off because I feared this paint would hide too much of the details. I might try giving them a light coat. Once I get all that settled I will spray it again with a nice even coat of black paint. Then weath
  13. Long overdue update. Painted the receiver and most of the parts with a black coat of surfacer paint. Did a test of the wrinkle paint I purchased. First attempt after quickly heating the paint to reveal the wrinkles. This unfortunately creates tighter wrinkles and not exactly what I was shooting for. Second attempt: The wrinkles appear more accurate to the original wrinkles on a sterling but only when I slowly let the paint air dry. After a few months of waiting to paint the blaster. Freshly applied wrinkle pa
  14. Looking forward to this! Keep up the great work!
