    Default "Fake-lite" Faux Bakelite 7.62x39 magazine

    I've always thought that bakelite magazines looked really cool. I wanted one in 7.62x39, but I refuse to pay $70 per mag. So, I made my own.

    P.S.

    The burgundy paint looks good but I'd like more of an orange tint.

    If you notice bakelite mags contain more than one color in them. You might try spraying red and orange paint simultaneously in a random pattern to create that dual color effect. Or you could spray a base color and let it dry then overlay it with a highlight color followed by rolling crumpeled tin foil over it to create that two tone effect that is common on these mags. Otherwise I think you are onto something here. Good job.

    Thanks for the the tip. I'll have to try the crumpled tin foil technique. This type of experimenting is fun!
