Well, here she is, thought I would show some of the inside and her as of right now. I'm trying to pay attention to every little detail and totally perfect her to fit my perfectionistic personality. Not shown in the pics is the blue 90* elbow fitting along w/ the black straight macro fitting from Hobbyhorse that will go on the torpedo. Have to do some modification for it to work first though.
I'm also not diggin the contract killer grips as of right now but that will be changed in the next week. Not sure what I'm going w/ but i'm thinking the blue skull grip panels w/ the window for Tadao.
Once again, I'd like to thank Drefish for his input and helping me decide and find parts for "Sil". He's the man.
As always, I'm open to suggestions as to what I need to do to completely finish her. I'm thinking an anno might come way down the road. Thanks and enjoy.

Specs are:
2k2 Species Body
ccm feedneck w/ blue clamp
clear spyder detents
Blue alias front block
blue hybrid adj. ram cap
eigenram
blue lazer eyes
blue assassins trigger (may install cp magnet kit, not sure yet)
empire poppet
blue 06 Bob Long Logo guage
VP species teflon bolt
05 Torpedo
Complete Hybrid Verdikt
species trigger guard

Thats awesome. I have one suggestion, you make like the speed feed, but in my P.O.V, its a little bulky up there.

Other than that, a very great looking gun. Congrats.

I'm honestly not feeling it Fred. I don't think the colors work for the Species. I just can't see this one winning NSOTY. Maybe for one month, but not the yearly one. I know you aren't building it specifically to win it, but someone else mentioned it.

Not your best work, the Ironmen was WAY better.

I saw a blue and black version, basicly inverted of what you have on the field last time I reffed. Got to fire it... very nice gun. Shoots tits... sort of heavy though.

Some old timer was repping it. (I actually think it might have been pre 2k2.)

Very nice gun man.

I like it except for the grips, not doing it for me. I think grips with less blue in them would look better.

It is cool. It wasn't my goal to win NSOTM by building it. I built it to my specifications of how I wanted it. No big deal you don't like it, there are plenty of guns people just adore that I can't stand. It is all about personal preference. I just happen to be really fond of black w/ blue parts and to have the species body makes it all the better for me.

And Muddytaco, what grips do you suggest, I'm not sure which grips are going on her yet.

Hehe, the inside of your gripframe looks just like mine. :D
Same board, same blue tubing, etc....lol

I now have the same blue lazer eyes that you have too, I just forgot to get the alias eye harness along with it...hehe.


Good work, I like it.


EDIT: May I suggest one of these (http://www.airsoldier.com:8080/cgi-bin/mivavm?Merchant2/merchant.mvc+Screen=PROD&Store_Code=AOS&Product_Code=Beswick-M3LS&Category_Code=FITTINGS)? They're great products, and they eliminate the need for a jockstrap mod. Just use instead of your front ramsleeve barb.

I saw those on pbn. Didnt' even know they existed Nader. If you didn't know, I'm "Imagination" on pbn so say hey if you see me around. Thanks for the recommendation though, I'll look into it.

That set screw in there is from the cp magnet kit. I haven't installed the other part of the kit yet cuz I'm not sure if I will need it. It feels really good right now how it is.
