    Since I was just filling out last months tickets today I took on a small side project.

    I followed the same method as Market Garden, except I put down a layer of tape on a cutting board, made my shapes, then applied them to the stock. That way if my razor got out of hand I didn't slice up the paint job. I'll skip all the boring shit and go straight to the pics.

    Shapes - XD because I was fending of crazy mexicans in the back yard

    The final product - With Gringo, he's definitely not camera shy.

    that came out very satisfactory

    I almost think you should have gone with a tan basecoat and then gone from there though - there's too much black, in my opinion

    I did go with a tan base coat. I skipped all the middle pics, and I was actually trying to cover most of the stock before the black coat. If I do it again I'll mask more of the tan coat. Like the holster I made, this was kind of a trial run.

    Covered most of the butt with an eagle stock pack, and that's where most of the black was;)
     
  4. Looks good.

    Gracias.:bigthumb:
     
  6. I actually did mine slightly differently. After painting my initial tan basecoat I just sat down with the roll of tape and tore it into irregular shapes and stuck it to the stock until I was happy with the way it looked. Then I'd lay down the next coat, wait an hour for it to dry and tear up some more tape and stick it to the stock again. I didn't actually plan anything out beforehand or cut anything with a knife, I just did my best to tear the tape into various shapes.

    Maybe I got you confused with a link I followed. Either way, I figured out it's not rocket science.:wiggle:

    wouldn't be hard at all. just lots of little square holes in each template after you put the base color down :dunno:

    just would be annoying to have to MAKE that stencil

    I've seen people do digital by making random square patterns on the tiny square graph paper, cut them and then do it. Looks pretty good. :dunno:

    Added a couple more pics. One showing the bottom and a close-up.

    The dog knows he's cool, that might be his only drawback. :rofl:

    Should I camo the bipod and monopod?
    Actually tape them and do it right, or just spray sporadically and hope foor the best?
     
  21. I wouldn't. My bipod gets moved around to differnt guns, and other than the 1 camo gun it would look silly to have a camo bipod on a non-camo gun.

    No protective coats. I'm gonna let it get scratched bumped and scraped, then I get to think up a new camo design for round two.
