My first bapty build

Recommended Posts

This is my first bapty and thought I'd share a few pics of the build and finished blaster.

Started with a doopydoos and some epoxy putty.

Then cut the barrel and ammo port.

Let the wood extend in a bit to give more surface area to glue.

Used the barrel as my sanding block to match the curve.

Used pins to secure all my small pieces. But screws for the ammo mag port and handle.

Primed, silver, then some dabs of e-6000 to simulate paint chips, the flat black. Was happy with how the glue worked.

The scope was painted brass then flat black. I used 450 grit sandpaper to weather and when the paper got clogged up with paint dust I used it to polish the paint and it gave it a nice worn smooth look.

Did the same sandpaper trick to the blaster with the addition of rubbing in some graphite powder everywhere except the t-rails. I painted those mat black .

The counter had a brass under coat then I used a semi gloss black over top to try and give a variety different black shades through out the blaster.

I'm pretty happy with how it turned out and am really looking forward to taking it out on my next troop.

Cool dude. Just one Little note for your next Bapty build:-) try to make the scope rail a Little bit Close to the Barrel and try to use a thinner material for the rail;-)

 

Cheers dude:salute:

I found some thinner aluminum for my scope rail, was 3mm, now 2mm. Lowered it as well and it looks a whole lot better. Thanks.
