Keep those progress pics coming. Love the Pulse rifle - very cool way of making one
Tell me about it its a nightmare, bloddy sharpie's. Should deffo put that on the Newb's pageIts coming along...the one thing you did was the same thing I did - use a sharpie to mark your adjustments. But...the sharpie still shows after sanding. A better choice would be pencil, but its just not bold enough! Plus, when you are done sanding and finally prime it, the Sharpie won't be visible anyway. Looking forward to the next update
Well on closer inspection, The front crown needed a bit of filling out, the nose section needed pulling up. I've fixed the cracks,. I eased apart then rubbed supaglue in the gaps and then sanded flat. Owww I love sanding. I give the whole thing a wet and dry all over as I could still see where I'd used some quite abrasive paper to take out the filler and milliputt. I've rubber some milliputt into most of the unwanted pin holes. I've also decided that the nose on the left hand side mneeds sanding back more to be more symmetrical. Quite a bit as well. You can see so much more in daylight out side. Its a bit warmer her in Blighty now to sand out side. Then I gonna tackle fitting the mesh with out gluing it on to see what is exposed so I can smooth around the eye area. Still need a bit of sanding smoothing out around the slug and the shroud. still need to source a piece for the cheek hose connector. Thought I found a wicked pen, turns out to be not the one I was after. I've also gotta trim back the inside part of the top part of the eye as it protrudes a lot further inward than the lower section, as it'll make the mesh not lay flat. Mostly then sorting/sanding filing milliputt that I've added back on. Then maybe another primer coat to expose no doubt some more floors, then if OK I'll wet and dry all over then hit it with a coat of silver, before adding the hammerite to the sections I want it on. Then I'll get to work weathering and making it look battle scared and gnarley.Gotta love it when you've got that coat of primer on and you can see all your work has paid off.
