Well, could be the part ratio in the tube was off.  If it's the off-brand stuff, that might be the case.

It's the name-brand stuff. I've used multiple tubes of it over the years and it's always been pretty consistent.

Well, you might have gotten a bad batch then, who knows.

Regarding the crack though.  Assuming it remains consistent and doesn't get worse, you might just have to turn it into a part of the gun's history: like you whacked someone in the jaw with the butt of your gun and cracked the handle.

That might have to be part of it, but definitely I want to fill in the little circles on the handle until it's smooth.

Updates! I'm not dead! Work's been pretty crazy the last few months, but a new schedule, and a promotion are good things happening in my professional life, so I've just been trying to get set up in my new role at work. Still, I've gotten a few things done. The DC-15A is painted and weathered! Still want to do a few more touch-ups, but mostly I'm calling it done. Also got my second blaster figured out.

First, the DC-15A:






And a few detail shots after weathering using 0000 steel wool and a brown wash for dirt/grime:












Now on to the blaster. I found parts of an old airsoft gun that I thought would look like a neat greeblie to slap on the side. I'd show you pics with paint, but the thing is currently out back drying between coats. I also added a thing piece of sintra and wrapped it around the rear of the grip to hide those little holes I tried to fill in (not pictured). For now, enjoy the pics of it pre-paint-app:

Much appreciated! Unfortunately you can't tell super well from a distance, but the plan is to go back in with a bit of Rub 'n' Buff to bring some highlights out.

Paint on the blaster is dry. A little bit of yellow got through my masking, but I can fix that by hand. Gotta wait for another warm-ish day to finish up the rest.

Thanks! On my day off this week the plan is to add some red stripes over the yellow to match the other pistol that had the reverse (yellow stripes over red). I've got a large painting schedule set for my weekend haha. Going to hope the weather can hold, or at least I'll have to get a bucket of hot water for the paint, and find a way to hang it.

Voila! Got the kill stripes painted on the last blaster today. They're mostly dry, and I also went in by hand and fixed a couple spots of overspray. Tomorrow I plan to do a final inspection to make sure I don't feel anything else is needed, and then... weathering!

That is looking SWEET! I love how that shade of yellow ends up looking after a bit of weathering and the shape looks awesome

Much appreciated! One of my favorite things about this one is all the nooks & crannies for weathering to really dig into. Going to look SO nice!

Modifying my last post to prevent a double post violation.

Here it is nice and dirtied up!




And side-by-side with the other blaster. I feel likeI did a fine job of keeping the weathering consistent between them both, and I'm pretty satisfied with them. I likely won't be finishing the E-11 until the rest of my kit is done, in the interest of not trying to do too many things at once.
