UPDATE:

Here is the belt, with the leather finish applied along with the holster I got. As you can see the holster is a little darker than the belt but is an accurate holster.



The back of the blaster with the D-ring put in. This was a pain in the you know what, but it's in there now!! Wink



On some of the older Rebel Fleet Trooper hasbro blaster the Star Wars logo was a sticker you could just peel off and then sand it down, well they decided to make it with 3-D text on the gun itself. So I had to dremel it down and then sand it.



Star Wars logo sanded



Here we go, all sanded and ready for priming!!



Both sides primed!



Now just need to paint this and the blaster will be finished.

Well, I called them and found out my 2 blue shirts are on back order.

An e-mail would've been nice that's for sure, but oh well. At least I know what the deal is.

UPDATE: 11/3/12

It's been a week since I've posted any updates but that doesn't mean I haven't been working on it...on the contrary, the blaster is FINISHED!!!

Both sides of the blaster are primed and ready to be painted black. The barrel is wrapped in a plastic bag and taped so no black paint gets on it. The barrel will be painted silver, also the "shell ejection slots" are taped. These will be painted silver as well.



and the other side...



Main part of the blaster is wrapped in a plastic bag and taped together so no silver paint gets on it, but the barrel is exposed and painted silver on both sides. I put two coats of silver on.



The "shell ejection slots" are painted silver on both sides. Blaster is ready for the finishing clear coat.



other side..



Clear coat applied...Blaster is FINISHED!!! Smile





In the process of having the vest hemmed and the pockets put on the back. Still waiting for my 2 blue shirts that are on back order to come in.
