At CPX's Living Legends 5 I did a two part interview with Kevin Donaldson, captain of the New York Master Blasters and owner of Action Sports Outfitters.
High winds made this footage difficult to stabilize but I did my best and tried to clean up the audio as well.
This is also the first of 4 videos on Rob "Termite" Smith and his Termite Gun.

The first part of Kevin's interview focuses on Rob "Termite" Smith's Termite Gun and the thrown together team of the Widowmakers from the August 20th-22nd, 1988 tournament Poconos Skirmish in Jim Thorpe , PA.

In this video Kevin discuses the main variations between the different models of the Termite Gun but warns that it's hard to separate generations of Termites because each paintgun is custom made.
Kevin Donaldson's early Termite Gun. The Master Blasters received their Termites after the PBGA tournament so likely c. late 1988. Pictures courtest Kevin Donaldson and the Master Blasters' facebook page.
Although after the second generation Earon Carter machined nearly the entire gun and the Termite became more compatible with Earon's Buzzard. So these later versions are easier to separate from earlier guns.
