    Default Custom paint job?This design or no? need your input.

    I need some feedback on this paint scheme, yes, go with it or no, come up with different scheme?


    Allright since I olnly have access to a limted amount of tools the only other mod I can do is paint for now(untill I relocate within a couple of months to FL. and I see there is a Ft Lauderdale build maybe I can make the next one and learn something)
    Anyway this is just a desgn idea for my rendition of Urban camoflage for my UCAR (urban combat assault rifle).
    Duracoat finish
    1) Combat Grey (for the base color)=buildings
    2) Combat Black (main designs)=blacktop
    3) Combat Green (for the the designs that run under the black& some small triangle designs)=grass
    4) Underbrush (for the underlying accents or you can call them shadows)=buildings & sidewalks

    I hate to say anything neg about someones creativity.
    the pattern needs some tweaking, as it is now it looks like wallpaper from the mid 1970's. I would also omit any black in a camo scheme. it tends to stand out as there are no black colors in most ecosystems natural foliage. try shades of green and brown for forest area stuff and greys and light blues for urban.

    I need honest imput negative or not this is why I posted this design before I actually did it. I respect the opinions of Gunco members there are some very talented persons here. I dont even know if I'll actually do it. I really do like it all black.
    But if I can come up with the right design and colors that makes everyone say "WOW you gotta do it" I'll do it. I can allways reapint it.

    I like Black with very light wood and I like light grey park with dark walnut or reddish mahoghany type finish.

    Camo paint is not my liking, so I really casnnot comment

    I would like to learn how to do one of these paint jobs.

    Do you shoot it with a base then put stickeys on as stencils?

    If I've read the duracoat instructions on the website correctly, "yes".

    This may help...

    I found some stencil paper at the hobby shop for cheap. It is really just a sticky tape that isn't very sticky for easy removal. While I haven't used it on anything but model airplanes, it should fit the bill perfectly. OR just cut out some stencils on that blue masking tape, would be about the same thing, only thinner strips...
