    Sure. That sounds like it would be the same as doing Tan first followed by black. Post up when your done, it would be cool to see that variation.

    Damn spiffy GP.

    I havent really seen one done w/ those colors, but it really works. Kinda reminds me of the old WW2 Razzle Dazzle camo.

    Good job man. So, any problems or tips you would like to pass on to others?

    Krylon is fine; it wont last as long duracoat or brownells but its cheaper and easier to obtain.

    The colors sound fine, as far as tips go, both Tigerstripe and Digi howto's cover what you need to think about for painting.
    Cleaning is probably the most important thing to consider. Oil (finger, gun, etc..) plays hell with paint. If the marker is not nice and clean, when you go to pull the tape off, the paint will peal with it.

    hey i am very new to painting (and unsure if wookie still checks this forum) but i am confused on how to do the "more taping" step. if anyone could help me that would be great



    No problem.
    So you have laid down a green basecoat with long tape lines on top of it.
    After that you lay down the black paint.
    Finally, in answer to your question, you want place some tape just slightly above or below the tape from the first step.
    What you are shooting for it to create a small exposed space for the thin tan line to be painted.
    Notice the thin tan line here. (PIC)

    Does this make sense?

    Hey Wookie! Is the Createx paint that you can get for the airbrush guns, any good? I have an Epiphany that I am fixing to make a winter project out of. LMK what you would recommend.
    Also, if you say that the Duracoat is the tops, where can I find it in liquid form, not spray form?


    Icehouse,

    I have not played around with Createx's products, but if they are like most airbrush paints, they are translucent (eg, painting a yellow stripe over a blue bascoat creates a green color.)

    The duracoat that everyone uses is opaque, so a yellow stripe over a blue basecoat makes a yellow stripe.
    You can find their paint here: http://lauerweaponry.com/

    Bear in mind that it is chock full of hazardous chemicals, so use a respirator and work in a well ventilated area.

    G'luck
