FDS: Elite Blue Demolisher
As if there aren't enough reasons to like those crazy Brits... here's another. Yeah, you're seeing these pictures right (unless there's something wrong with your internet connection and they're not loading). That's a Demolisher in Elite Blue colors! But before you can say "Oh my gawsh where can I buy one?!?" just take a deep breath and realize... this is a repaint. A REALLY good repaint!
This was a commission done for "Big Poppa Nerf" by Foam Data Services. He shared these photos with me on the Tactical Tag Facebook Page and I just HAD to share them! According to him, this commission was 85% conceived in the "Tactical Tag spirit of modding" to look stock and 15% conceived in the SBNC spirit of Photoshop Concepts. I'm flattered that my idea of making things still appear stock has apparently become a thing... especially if it's bringing results like this!
To me, this paintjob not only tugs at my "I love Blue" heartstrings, but also proves something that I've always been slightly irked about with the Demolisher. TOO MUCH ORANGE kind of made it look blah. However, with the Blue armor, even while keeping the rocket launcher orange, things look much more balanced and ...uh... tolerable. I'm not sure if FDS or Big Poppa Nerf were the first to do this, but I certainly hope they aren't the last!
