Modification and Paintjob Pictures

So here it is, the Hammershot Bladerunner 2019 Edition.
The only Hammershot I've done with different detailing both sides
There's a bunch of stuff missing due to practical considerations, but I've added things too, so it balances out... kinda.
Whereas I enhanced the look of the strap/buckle decoration on one side, on the other I removed it entirely and replaced it with an adjustment knob and a wiring loom. I removed the tank from under the cylinder and used styrene sheet backed with epoxy glue to fill the support-arm holes. I also removed the bandages on the grip as usual, but also infilled the notch.
After all the fun with the epoxy putty, I had a little left over, so i worked away on some extra bits, the hammer got a lengthening, the bolt-lever was enhanced to give it a similar curve to the screen-prop, and some extra lines were cut into the shell with files.
While I had the rotary tool fired up, I decided to do an ejection slot. Note that it's not big enough for Megas (something I hope to address in V.2). I found a bunch of greeblies in my parts box and bunged those on as well; no LEDs or switches though (see note re. V.2). The fake screws were all replaced with rubber grommets left over from my Zoids era.
I could regail you with the trials and tribulations of epoxy putty, paint and masking tape, but there's another thread around here somewhere for that. Suffice to say, It came out okay after a somewhat shakey showing in the mid-stages.
Hope you like it and thanks for looking

Been working on this one for a while. I was hoping for a bright colored paint job, but I got impatient and finished it with what I had.
Work in progress:
I considered redoing the paint a couple times, but I want this to be a reminder of what happens when a project is rushed in the final stages. Spent around 3 months working on it and it has a special significance to me, so it was a bit of a shame that it didn't end up looking how I wanted.
EDIT: added in proper description and context for project.

May I introduce Anti-intestinal Fortitude!
A Nerf Mega Doublebreach painted in my usual style of dilapidated hot-rod-esqueness.
Aftermarket graphics, of course...
...and for something different, a water droplet mask for that odd-looking polkadot effect. It seemed to work okay, so I might end up using it again on something else.
Nothing internal to speak of, no-one in here except us chickens.
