Hi every-one,

I was moving my blaster collection and I hit one of them, and now some paint has gone Crying or Very sad It is very limited but it makes me crazy ...

It is the HCG exclusive edition.

Does anyone know how I can hide this as much as possible ?

Thank you for your advises !

Adil

The image shows very light damage, barely more than a scratch.
You have a couple of choices.

1. Disassemble blaster to remove the receiver, strip it, repaint.

2. Find a model paint colour which is a close match and apply with a pin, just on the scratched part.

3. Accept the slight damage as part of the blaster's 'story' and put it down to natural weathering.

Personally, I would sell it to a fellow member of the forum 😅😅

Joke aside, I wouldn't touch it either. Made a scratch on my Coyle and was struggling as well on how to remedy it. I finally didn't change anything, and I love it as it is.

If it continues to worry you I would use a very soft graphite pencil - 9B or softer - and gently work the tip into the chips.

Work slowly and softly

Best of luck

You could also try some diluted alumablack on a Q-tip ad dab it on.

Thank you for your answers.

I am not skilled enough to remove and paint the receiver. Not sure if I am yet ready to live with it, but it is also the advise who does not understand at all my "problem".

I will think about the graphite pencil, and also the alumi black option, which looks like a really good option.
