22nd September 2010: Colour Scheme Added and Shaping Cut Basic paint colours were added to both the rifle and the shield. The shield handle was also cut to be more clearly defined.

18th September 2010: Primer Added Rifle and shield were given several coats of primer in preperation for more detailed styling.

18th September 2010: Rifle Dissambled and Cleaned Took the weapon apart for cleaning and to make the painting process easier.

16th September 2010: Nerf Longstrike Purchased Bought a Nerf Longstrike from Toys 'R' Us due to the fact its size and bulky appearence tie very well into the mecha asthetic i'm going for with the Magneton Gijinka design.

4th June 2010: Bracing Struts Added To provide additional reinforcement to the shield struts were added the rear of the shield to provide extra strength.

2nd June 2010: Shield Design Cut Using spare MDF the shield design was cut using both a jigsaw and tenon saw. Work was temporarily haulted due to my not paying attention and slicing my thumb quite badly. Once it healed I was able to get the design cut out.

Very cool, perhaps add screws to the design? It's got magnets and stuff, but I think a few screws around the suit would add more bulk and substance to it.

Will love to see ^-^
