I'm thinking (seriously) about getting my marker done up, but I gotta know how much green I'm shelling out first, right? Anyway, here's what I'm looking at getting done:

A-5 with Commando Air-Thru Kit, Q-Loader (w/5 Q-Pods), 18" C-Series w/Devastator Tip, Red Dot scope, and bipod.

What I'm thinking is a woodland camo (non-digi), with a "biohazard" symbol on the right side of the stock, woodland also, but done in a way that it breaks the pattern enough to be visible. Open areas on q-pods, so I can still check my ammo, with the biohazard on each, preferably at the end of the pod, but if that's not possible the side is fine. I know the CF on the barrel can't be painted, but the paintable parts still go.

I know it's a bit complicated, but that's what I've got in my head and it's waaaay beyond my abilities. I've seen some of your work and I'm impressed, so I'd like to see what you can do with it.

Thanks.

EDIT: Another thought - same basic idea, but my callsign on radio is demon, so maybe switch the biohazard for a pentagram, with "demon" written below on stock. Can I get quotes for both ideas if the cost is different? Thanks again.

Here you go-

Quote for a 4 shade Woodland Camouflage:

A5 w/ Stock (barrel included) $195.00
Q-Loader Receiver $30.00
5 Q-Pods $60.00 (each)
Bipod $30.00
Red Dot (I can't paint electronic scopes)
6 Custom Decals $30.00

Total $585.00

And on a postive note :laugh: I can infact paint carbon fiber barrels now. I recently discovered that if I simply lower the air pressure of my sandblaster I can give the surface enough of prep that the paint holds firm.

Sounds like a killer idea although the Q-pods do considerable raise the price. If you have any other questions feel free to ask. Thank you and welcome to the forum!

Thanks, man! That's actually lower than what I expected! I'm building my setup over the next year, and I plan to send it your way around the beginning of '10 (gotta love tax returns), so I can get it done all in one shot (the listed parts aren't current setup, just planned upgrades). My ideas will probably waver a bit and I'm sure I'll have more questions between here and there, so please bear with me!

Now with the scope, that's another one that I don't actually OWN yet, so is a regular, say, air-rifle type scope paintable? I don't necessarily need the red dot, just something to sight in hard shots with (I hate the stock sights on the A-5). So is a regular magnification scope doable? If not, maybe suggestions for a paintable sighting system? Scope painting isn't a HUGE worry, but I don't wanna throw off the mojo of the finished product if it can be avoided.

Thanks again!

As for the scope it depends entirely on the type. I've been able to paint a accents on some red dots and a few non electronic scopes but it really is a case by case situation. I would say, when you find what you are looking for, to throw me a pic and I should be able to let you know if it is doable or not.

Hope that helps.
