Sanding and painting and sanding and repainting. Spray paint ain't my bag. Hopefully this will dry soon and I'll touch up the black and dry brush some more silver on it and clear it. Should be good enough for shooting at my TV while I watch movies. #bladerunnerblaster#bladerunner#heyyomikem2019blastermod#mod
Hard to tell from this photo but the top handle grip has been wet sanded to 1000 grit and then hit with automotive rubbing compound to get the shine back. The bottom grip hasn’t been done yet. Wasn’t sure I was going to be able to turn these resin grips around and make them shiny again, I had to cut 1/4 of an inch off the back to fit the gun. After which they looked terrible. But sanding up through the grits really paid off and now there almost ready to be installed. #bladerunner#bladerunner2049#pkdblaster#prop#bladerunnerblaster#resinkit
The journey to nerdvana continues: Blade Runner Squirt Gun achieved. And swipe left to see what was randomly left on my lunch table today (okay, it's not a unicorn, but CLOSE) #bladerunner#bladerunnerblaster
Using real parts sometimes makes it harder than scratch building. Here's one case where the front trigger on the #bladerunnergun needs a lot modification in shape and a new hole. The steel is hardened to much that a drill bit won't touch it. In cases like this it's sometime necessary to anneal the steel to be able to make the metal malleable once again. #bladerunnerblaster#realparts
Scratch building a #bladerunner#bladerunnerblaster isn't easy. I built 7 trigger guards alone until I was able to nail the shape, taper and thickness of this detail. It's funny how the most minimal difference can throw off the whole look.
