haha, i had to sand it by hand, so it isn't at its full potential, but at least i tried

P.S. Spud blaster-what makes it so ghetto? the less than mediocre bondo job?

I'll give you a hint.It pays to use 80 grit paper and lower on Bondo.I just finished out the Bondo on my new gun and it has been a pain in the rear.3 hours straight of hand sanding.But I think I've finally got it looking right.

Any how, back onto your gun.Sorry for my tangent.I'd say good layout of the tank and barrel, it hides well.The only thing I would suggest is strip the paint and go back to sanding.Just switch to a coarser grit and change the paper often.A sanding block will be your best friend.For tighter places(trigger area,etc.) I duct tape a piece of sand paper to half(cut lenghtwise) of a 5" piece of pool noodle.The foam follows profiles very nicely and isn't so rough on the hands.

Good luck man

Very nice indeed, i love it, i love the realish rifle look, although yu could invest in a electric sander :P But never the less, this is a very unique gun, never seen one like it before, although its a bit similare to the paper mashay one you made, but i think this one is alot better.
