Topics I've Started
22 April 2010 - 08:47 PMI just painted up my marker, and sprayed on a satin finish clear coat to protect it but it is way too shiny. Is there a way to dull down a shiny clear coat? I tried to find a matte or flat clear coat, but there was nothing at my local hardware store (spray paint).
12 October 2009 - 12:59 PMI need a new power tube for my 98C. I busted my stock one. I stripped the threads where you attach it to the receiver.
I have no clue what to get, or what to even look for. Any suggestions?
01 June 2009 - 06:01 PMWhat is it about a ghillie suit that makes a noob think he's invisible? Is it the extra heat generated by all that jute thread? Is it all the sniper movies?
This past weekend I was at a paintball game where there were a couple young guys in ghillie suits. The ghillies were in dark woodland colors, but the place that we were playing at was more tans and browns. These guys stood out like a Bob Long in a group of 98C rentals. They both seemed to think that they were invisible! They would sit in one spot thinking that no one would see them. They wouldn't try to hide behind cover, or find areas of similar color to their ghillies. They would sit in an open spot and not move. Most guys would just laugh and shoot them in the head. Oh and the other funny thing is that they didn't have the ghillie over their heads; they had the standard black masks on.
Anyone else ever run into noobs in ghillies that thought that no one could see them? If they are on your team, what can you say to them to help them learn?
21 April 2009 - 07:34 PMLast week I painted my hopper using the snake skin how to posted on this site. I think it turned out pretty sweet. I took it out paintballin' on the weekend and it even took a couple hits with out chipping!
I used camo spray paint from the local hardware store, and put a satin clear coat over the top.
I sprayed the green from the bottom, and the tan from the top. This way the scales get a little more depth to them because of the spray angles. It looks pretty sweet. And the diamond back pattern and colors work great out here on the prairies!
Notice below on the top diamond, top right face, how the line on the brown somewhat fades away into the tan? This happened accidentally when my female stencil lifted up while I was spraying. I think I like the effect it gave and when I paint the rest of my gear I'm gonna make sure all the diamond stencils don't sit right on the surface. Let a little bit of spray fade that line away!
I hope you like it as much as I do!
18 April 2009 - 07:16 AMYesterday I filled my CO2 tank up (rather, I got the guy that knows what he's doing to fill it up) at the local field. I screwed it into my 98C and I got 2 good shots, and 3 shots that fell 20 ft in front of me. After that, there was no pressure coming from the tank. When I unscrewed it, there wasn't even a release in pressure. So I slapped on my spare tank and went back to playing.
That night I got home, put my gear in the living room, and went up to have a shower. No sooner do I get in the shower than my wife comes running up the stairs screaming the bloodiest death scream that something blew up in the living room! I ran down stairs to find that my faulty CO2 tank had popped and released all of the CO2 in my gear bag (it froze things up pretty good in there)!
What would cause this? Is it fixable (ya, ya, ya, just get an HPA tank; that will fix all your CO2 problems...)? Should I just throw out this tank, or can I refill it again?
