I think im going to leave the rest black for now, but when I get my sportline CA project gun, I will paint that entire gun...

 

 

Thanks

I have to say...and no offense to anyone in here, but the "body parts only" being sprayed looks kind of silly. I know lots of this has to do with not wanting to spray certain parts if you switch them out etc...or if they're expensive...but I really prefer a fully-painted gun top to bottom. Grab some masking tap...plug the barrel...and have at it. :lol:

 

edit: I know you cant really spray the Beta grip and stock...as its done in that rubberized finish...

Looks good JPU. Nice and simple but effective, it will look even better when it starts to wear.

Did you encounter any problems?

The reason that I ask is that I am about to start my first paintjob (been putting it off for ages) and Im trying to gather as much info as possible before starting.

Well, I had only one problem, but I couldn't affect on that because my med brown's nozzle was a bit broken so I had to work with that.

 

Other than that I had no problems at all, and I think it came out nice.

Just go for it man, the less effort and thought put into the paintjob the more authentic it will look imo :P

Yeah, you're right man but my O.C.D. senses are tingling every time I think about it :P

I'll get full of beer one afternoon and go for it...actually thats probably a bad idea!

Very nice, starfury. I haven't seen a painted MP5 in a long time. Are there small stripes on it or are those shadows? :huh:

when painting your gun you want to get tissue paper and stick it in the flash hider

make sure its not really cold where you are spraying it

split it in to parts so take of the add ons and mask bits you dont want to spray when spraying selector move the slector after each layer has dried

make sure you do lots on fine coats not just one really thick will come out better

 

have fun

Here are some quick snap shots of my rifle, newly painted. Thinking of either a digital scheme, or a standard DCU theme, enjoy!
