I usually just opt for the Aeroclub, and wash and drybrush the heck
out of it until it looks presentable. I've tried the XtraParts guns,
but they have no "molded" in detail that would "look" like a
"perforated" gun jacket. One thing I'm thinking of doing for my next
"outside gun" project is using the butts from the XtraParts, but
adding the Tom's photoetch jacket, and a syringe needle "tube".
