    I would man, everything else looks good but the gun (in my opinion) should be traditionally black with those red lighting effects - but that's just me :)

    Good try and good work for first try...ok in order to get scratch effects on metal parts...try dry brushing...get a GUNZE ALLUMINIUM color...a rough flat brush...( if you can get a rough flat brush , you my cut the flat brush into half...) then get some alluminium paints and dry those paints onto some tissue until almost dry...then gently brush at edges and you will get the effects...try it out...it will look even better.
