It’s always nice to receive blaster porn in one’s inbox – particularly when it’s accompanied by some great written content. I’m really pleased to see DutyOne’s finished carbine. I think it looks awesome and I’m both humbled and surprised that the blog has played a role in shaping it.

Ever since I started airsoft, I’ve gotten more and more influenced by the whole mil way of doing things. But, I didn’t want to go completely standard. This guided my preferences when I started shaping and planning my PTW, before finally placing an order with PPTW in early summer last year.

I started reading The Reptile House Blog at about the same time I was scoping for influence and inspiration. It was here I saw the light – in the form of the MilCiv style blasters.

As a result of this, I’ve spent much time and way too much money (not unlike my fellow PTW-afficionados/team members in Team Fenris). But I’m very happy with the finished product!

Regarding the paint job, I’ve endeavoured to replicate the sort of pattern which TRH has applied to his own MilCiv blaster, using a large net. I tried it first on my G&P M4, to see how it worked. I’ve mixed up the colour-palette, though, making it slightly greener; to fit the deep green Norwegian foliage.

On the wish-/things-to-come-list:
