After being caught up in the international travel restrictions over the past 6 months, I am finally back at home and back at the workbench. Since returning home a couple of weeks ago, I have managed to bang out a number of new projects. I will share each of these with y’all in turn. I will kick this off with my new Remington Model 870 Express Super Magnum hunting shotgun.
Starting with one of the hideous green Flagset shotguns from their War Angel Angela figure, I replaced the stock with another from Flagset for a more classical look. The leather cheek rest was salvaged from the spares box, originally from the DAM Spade 3 shotgun. Re-threading the stitching took some time, but it was worth it in the end.
The scope and rail were removed and the resultant holes filled with putty and sanded flush.
All of the ‘metal’ parts were resprayed to give it a more metallic look, while the pump handle was painted with a series of layers of acrylic and oil paints to give the impression of wood grain and a few dark brown washes to balance the colour with the shoulder stock.
I, personally, am pretty happy with the way that she has turned out, but I would love to hear what you think of her.
