First of all, i was able to fuit all the parts of this blaster on my 4"x 4" x 4.5" build plate, which is very cool. However, there is no tolerance on the holes. a lot of sanding was required to get it to go together, and teh trigger guard broke off in this process. the triggerguard has almost no support, and i opted to leave it off. I spraypainted it white, followed by silver, then used acrylic paint to paint the handles, and used a dull silver to wipe on to weather it a bit. some scratches added some wear to it. I'm happy how it came out, but would recommend enlarging the holes in the body by .5mm for an easy fit.
