    Does anyone else also paint alot of their TF gunbarrel tips black or grey etc to give them that hollowed out look?


    Hoping it does'nt decrease the value of the toy. (Incase I needed to ebay them off someday to pay some debt)
    Just think they look cooler with it :)

    I think the black is cool, but if your planning on selling them later than I wouldn't.


    Did you fix that prime your self?

    I've been doing this for years. And started panel lining/black washing/filling in details for about two years.

    But I really like Primus_Feather's drill bit idea

    No I actually hollow mine out with a dremel. In my opinion it does not affect the value in the slightest.

    I agree. If the toy is open then it's already lost some value. By doing these mods you could say it is "customized" or "detailed" and possibly even raise the value of it to some buyers.

    I always hollow out the center of my cream pies too....but I occasionally color the center black to get the barrell effect too.....


    tee-hee, sorry couldn't resist. The random pie guy is just too surreal to ignore.
