Yes, that's the one, though I didn't use the same materials.

Hi, people! It's been a while since my last post here.
I've found a fascicle from a collection about scale modelling and painting techniques. This one was about weapons (how to paint them to make them look real). So, my friend Chris took the challenge to transform the black plastic Mauser into a better replica of the DL-44. Here are the results:





I've bought the machined aluminum piston halves:

The prop was primered, filled, sanded, primered again, etc.:


If you want me to scan the fascicle, I'll do it. Though it's in Spanish, the pictures are very clear about the process. See you!

Is there an update in this thread. I would like to start a new build on an airsoft frame. The airsoft guns seem to all be 1936 vs 1896.
I would rather modify the airsoft so it shoots. I have an accurate non firing blaster.
