This gun is a gobstopper!

I got some parts in from bacci today with plans of doing a side tube conversion.

It looked like someone decided to give this gun a few too many krylon makeovers.

No worries here, I had a secret weapon!

It's hard to tell from the photo but this poor soul was lime green underneath. I had to do a few coats of stripper to coax all the layers off. Someone needs to keep Wonka away from the brass section. It looked like a baby made fudge on the work bench...

After I cleaned all the crud off I realized this body was in much better shape than I thought. I ran up to my pile of parts and did a quick mock up without internals.

A neat crayola effect from the paint I couldn't get out.

I still need to thoroughly clean the insides out and get a few odds and ends, there are also a few spots I need to clean on the exterior.

Well it looks like I need another gun to cut up, this one's staying as is.

Wow that was in really nice shape under the paint. Makes you wonder why anyone painted it in the first place.

Great job on the restore so far.

Tell me why I had to be a powerslave.
I don't wanna die, I'm a god, why can't I live on?
When the Life Giver dies, all around is laid waste.
And in my last hour,
I'm a slave to the power of death.

Wait you stripped the nasty paint but the original finish was still there? CRAZY. That's gonna turn out really nice. I kind of like the Crayola lettering too.
