Anyone know of someone that is doing this for the weapons? Would also be interested in other patterns as well, should anyone know of people doing them, their website. I would also be interested in some pics of home jobs or kits like Laurer or others. Thanks

How about other types of camo painting? It seemed like there was a time when there was a lot of vendors doing this and now I can't seem to find any.

I did figure out the colors, well close at least.

To do that pattern you would need to make some stick on templates using tracings of the original pattern.

You would need to lay down the darkest brown and kahki first, then cover the portions you want in that color with the stick on templates.

Then paint over the templates with the next two shades of brown, then cover those areas.

Then apply the two shades of green, be sure to blend the colors together as unlike woodland. multicam uses two shades in the larger fields.

Peel off the templates and post pics of your results.

Yep.

Yep.



I took a piece of multicam gear to a local paint store and he took about 5 minutes to match the colors to his commercial numbers. Pretty easy to match them from there.
I am just not brave enough to try it

Do tell what you came up with. Are they custom blended. I matched up some model paints pretty well.

Always looking for something better.

You could honor the pattent by using the water suspended film dip process. Whoever prints the film pays the royalty to Crye just like the do to Advantage, Realtree, Mossy Oak... and then go to work. The match would be perfect.

Thats what I would like to see.

The hydrographic people could make a lot of bank doing patterns other that sporting patterns.

i was very impressed with their stuff. some multistage epoxy as i understand. they said it was hard to chip, but easy to repair if scratched or chipped. most of the requests for partial paint to full paint of scopes, mags, rifle, etc. were answered within the $80 to $140 range. i didn't find a website for them, but they had a short catalog with several photos. i'm having a 50 beowulf coated in the "winterlusion" camo they have...

looking forward to posting it in coming months.

I dont believe so. I read through the site and I dont think this is the hydrographic process.
Link Posted: 12/20/2005 6:20:30 PM EDT
i guess i don't fully understand what this "hydrographic" process is.... can someone fill me in?

Yea, but who did the work?

firelotus,

how bad ass is that? i especially like the camo'd eotech hood. that is a first rate camo job!



i guess the associated costs are the only factor left.

Who painted that. It is awesome!

Has anyone figured out who did that paint or hydrographic yet?
Link Posted: 12/24/2005 5:35:24 AM EDT
Someone sent this in to ADCO, hope they don't mind. It is not mine but it is one of the best looking rifles cammo'd.

I would contact Lewis Machine and Tool and ask them, it is their gun after all.

A good link is www.militarymorons.com. If you go to the AR misc page there is a good example of a home made digi cam pattern and photographs of a painted AR. I used it on my bolt gun and it worked great.

We are not discussing digital pattern.

We are discussing multicam.
