didn't know where else to put this :)

i recently bought the Cole train action figure for the sheer fact that well...its the train!

anywho, its awesome! par one little thing...the lancer was, well disappointing. unfortunately i didn't take a before picture, sorry. (if someone has one could the take a picture please :) )

1. this was all black and it didn't fit in.
2. this was also all black and it didn't fit in.
3. this entire area (not just that highlighted) was solid grey, none of the details stood out :(
4. this was the most concerning part, the barrel was metallic orange! not red, not rust color, but metallic orange!
5.the whole chainsaw was block, dull red. and looked very cheap.
6. the magazine was just completely black, and the lock mechanism was just one color of grey all over.
7. all the blue "lights" were just a random splodge of pale blue.
8. the handle was solid black and looked daft, also the cooling holes were the same color as the rest of the gun.

just a warning here, i repainted the whole thing with this list of items, when i redo another, which io probably will, im going to use proper equipment:
-a pot of random colored grey from an old airfix kit
-a VERY stale brush
-silver gel pen
-blue gel pen
-0.3 fine liner

i took the handle off as its poorly designed and keeps falling off at the slightest touch :(

anywho, without further ado:
