Hi everyone;  waiting on the armor and doing what I can in the meantime.  I saw the thread about the wires on the E-11;  do these look OK?  Have not glued them in yet and I still have a lot of sanding and painting and weathering to do, but wanted to check with everyone before I cemented these in.  I appreciate the feedback!

For the short duration that any E11's had their wires in the film, they were very thin diameter wires. Sorry to say that yours are a bit thick. Take a look here:http://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/2485-e11-power-cylinder-wires/

also, i'd hate to say it, but i think the gun in too "shiny/glossy" the guns were a bit more matte. The handle however was more vibrant in color since it was a rubber grip and therefore looks more shiny than the rest of the gun. still looks great none the less. Always appreciate the hard work of creating a hasbro conversion.

Thanks guys!  The wires will be toast, I will look for some much thinner ones.  Still lots of sanding to do it sounds like then, good tips on the paint!  I can leave the shiny only for the handle and will plan on repainting with more of a flat black.  Appreciate it!

sorry yea thats what i meant. The hard plastic, thats what made it shiny.

thanks for the clarrification.

in either case, yes i suggest you "flatten" the rest of the gun and leave the handle shiny.

Thanks again everyone;  found some thinner wire,  re-sanded, used flat black and did some light weathering.  Sprayed some clear coat on the handle, might do another coat or two to shine it up a bit more.  Great call by the group;  no comparison, the flat looks so much better than that shiny thing I started with!
