Got my blaster painted. Still Nerf functional, will eventually replace the pull-ring with a more realistic metal d-ring.

Acquiring this blaster is the reason I'm working on a RFT. Smile Now when Bry has a free moment or three I'll order a holster from him.

Going to need help getting the helmet kit properly prepared (i.e: cut trimmed and sanded) since the only tools I have is a modeling x-acto blade. Time wise this might have to wait until after the next two weekends.

Hmm, maybe I can skip the helmet and go for Redneck Fleet Trooper?

The only thing that might be iffy is the height of the boots?

Lee can you confirm?

True but you can pull your pant leg over the high part of the boot to cover thge extra inch or two so its right at the correct length. I believe its 11 inches but I will check Very Happy

Boots too high? Ok, where'd I put those sissors....

LOL Actually I do have a pair of east german jackboots, which should be the right height. The pair I'm wearing in the photo happened to be more conviently at hand at the time.

Helmet is 99% finished - just waiting on payday and a trip to Lowe's to grab a hard hat for the liner.
