Painted Weapons Picture Thread

Recommended Posts

In reality all you'd box off is the serial numbers (if you were to follow Army guidance)... Nobody cares about the trademarks but airsofters.

 

QFT!

 

My actual AEG has only the grip painted as i changed stock and handguard recently, so no pic worthy, but when I paint one of my replicas, i like it fully painted and not showing off trades...

It's slightly sad that you put boxes around the trades. It makes the gun look 100x uglier and you 100x snobby.

The rifle is painted as per Norwegian Armed Forces SOP.

Oh, and Short Stack - get over yourself :)

And because airsofters care so much, it keeps up the resell value when you keep the trades intact, even if painted, and especially if painted so well as Nor has done. Good job!

To me the boxes round the trades/markings are ugly and spoil the effect of painting it in the first place, which is a shame as that is a nice camo job. I really like the use of the light base colour with the fishnet masking, then BAM ugly black box random shape!

Started with earth brown Alumahyde:

Then dusted over mesh with OD Krylon:

It's set up for night ops with an internal tracer unit and functional suppressor.

Who wants to tell the guy in the second picture his paintjob looks snobby or ugly? I'm sure he'd be interested.

slightly off topic but the yanks are spending millions on camo gear and tan weapons and LBE why is he wearing red boots?

Pretty much done, besides a 2 pt sling. Got the the Angle-Locs on Saturday (shame I wasn't able to get the RDS on before my weekend OP), and also made a few paracord sling mounts. Gun received some nice wear and tear during the weekend; going to have to put my "keep-in-pristine" syndrome and try to give it as much wear as possible.
