Little Armory Water Gun A

These two watergun kits are identical, save for the color of the plastic. They’re both essentially the M4A1 with some clear plastic parts. The Water Gun A kit has a blue M4A1 and green clear parts, whereas the A2 kit has an orange M4A1 and pink clear parts. Shown below is the A kit:

The clear parts include water balloons, a pump action watergun, some water bottle attachments, and a watergun version of the Luger P08 pistol.

Here’s some poses with Mr. Skeleton:

And now for something slightly different: a Little Armory kitbash. I used the M4A1 from the Water Gun kits, as well as parts from the M870 shotgun kit. I already used up one of the M4A1 barrels for the M134 minigun build.
Like the M134, the inspiration for this build is also the first Predator film. This time I’m making something resembling the M16 with an underbarrel shotgun attachment. Instead of an M16, I’m using the Water Gun M4A1. To make it look more like an M16, I attached the rifle stock from the M870 kit to the M4A1.
It’s just a simple cut and paste job. For the shotgun attachment, I’m using the short barrel M870. It’s glued directly to the underside of the M4A1 barrel. It’s then painted with german gray, steel and black paints. With the rifle buttstock and shotgun attachment, it’s slightly longer than the vanilla M4A1.

Some closeup shots, and some poses:

Final word:
The Little Armory Water Gun A & B kits weren’t high on my wishlist. But since they’re slightly cheaper than a typical Little Armory kit, I thought they’d make good fodder for a kitbash project. Plus I was drawn in by the boxart.
The M4A1-M870 kitbash is slightly different from the one that appeared in the movie, but I had fun making it and I’m quite happy with how it turned out.
So overall, the Little Armory Water Gun kits are not for everyone. Unless you like brightly colored plastic guns, that is. But for me, they served their purpose as kitbash material.
