    I've been trying to get the orange cap off the gun/scope of Megs with a small flat screwdriver (as has been mentioned in other threads relating to kitbashing of this mold) but I can't get the darned thing off.
    The shoulder one came off without too many problems but this one is a real pain.

    Is it best to lever it from the bottom, where it meets the black barrel, or hook it under the top somehow, by the green scope? Any further advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,
    Rikerwota.

    Finally got the damned thing off. I managed to wedge the screwdriver under the inside of the top and pop it off. Wouldn't want to try that too many times though.

    DisThunder, how'd the semi-gloss paint go? Is it wearing well?

    Cheers

    I just used a strait precision screwdriver and wedged it in there in one of the clip wholes and just popped it off. Takes a little pressure to do it though.
