I really like it, but are you going to paint the plunger tube and cocking handle? It looks kinda odd like that.

Very nice job. Although, I have to say that the original Crossbow color scheme attracts me more than this one, but still, great job. I also agree with Gamefreak about the cocking handle.

The Cocking handle, trigger and Plunger tube were left un painted because I've had a few Bad past experiences with painted moving parts, I.E. Triggers stick and the cocking handle rubs against the inner frame. Even though i wanted this to look really good, I more importantly wanted it to work well.

For anyone who wants to know about the paint: I'v never used an airbrush, this is all spraypaint, White Krylon Fusion For The Basecoat, Flouressent Green "Racing Finish" brand paint for the green, Royal Blue Fusion For the top coat, and Basic Krylon clearcoat. I use Racing finish(found in at hobby shops, used with lexan bodies of RC cars), because that brand has very good neon paints, and they really Pop when over a white basecoat and are gloss clear coated. Before the cleaccoat, it actualy looks rather dull.
