    thanks man! i really was so disappointed in the mp21 forearms... it was a joke it was sent out like that. like i said, don't like parts-forming... but hate the look of empty forearms even more! lol

    I think horrible is a bit strong, but nice work nonetheless.

    I'd actually prefer the hollow arms. To me this isn't a fix for bad design, it's accentuating bad design. It's a great effort, but more than ever it just makes me wish things were differnet to start.

    I feel obligated to order just because that is really good price, but I'll wait to see the Mirage set and just order them together… :) 

    BTW, are you making the shoulder slit "Gitanes" plugs for Invisible as well, or just forearm covers?

    Yea I'm not trying to get rich from doing this. I simply wanted a fix to a problem and figured I'd pass it on cheaply to my fellow brethren.

    So far I only have the forearm pieces modeled roughly. They will be final in the next few days. I'll look into the additional cover and see if it looks worth doing. I haven't really thought about it because I think it will look out of place because of the sticker. Kinda was hoping there would be a reprolabel to fix the area.
