thats pretty cool, how do you do it? How do you plug the port holes on the barrel so that no paint gets in?

i pretty much read otters thread and started painting away. i lightly sanded, primed then painted it solid green. for the design, i drew a tiger stripe pattern on a piece of stiff cardboard cut it into a 5x5 square and used that as a stencil. i like the way it looks even tho its far from perfect but it blends in well with the land around here =D o and i covered the porting first with masking tape but then used a rolled up piece of paper to stop paint from gettin in the barrel.

and the trigger is just taped over like shunut said lol it should be done in a half hour or so i have to add the clear coat and it will be done.

not too bad

The color scheme is awesome. I dunno if I would have gone with the clearcoat though. It will protect the paint, sure, but it's a little too glossy for me. Maybe that's just the camera flash glare though. Looks good.

^^yeah the shine kind of defeats the purpose

Hey Backalley, this thread died off quite a few months back. Try not to bring back the really old threads.

And I'm pretty sure i read something abotu a clear coat in there.
