Well, it was a nice day in Upstate NY, the sun out. The Robbins defrosting.
So I said to myself, Adirondack, you really don't like that FUDD camo you R25 came in, why don't you do something about it!

So I broke out the airbrush, and the masking tape. And this is the end product except for the burnt umber, and light sand that I'll have to cut out of stencils tomorrow....I had enough paint to do both the R25 and the M40!
R25 goodness...
M40 goodness...

I can usually get 2 guns aout of each color, except when I paint a 50 BMG rifle.

Personally I think it would look better with a little bit more green. Nice job though.

i was kinda thinking the same thing, well i don't know that more green would be the way i'd descride it. but instead a darker shade more like O.D. then the foliage(that i'd call that shade) if you weren;t going for a M.C. look. may help distunguish the two colors and break up the silohette more, then the motled blob that the rifles will seem at any other than very close distance. still a great job and i do like very much. thinking about doing something quite similar. well kinda, more like a vertically oriented tiger stripe(heavy on tan, lighter on the F.D.E. with much thinner and more sparce stripes of O.D. blended / faded / misted in). just my $.02. great job adirondack. i know you were going for the mulitcam look with the addition of the other colors you mentioned i think you fedinatelly have hit the nail on the head. you should probably also post this in the rifle refinishing section under the armory forum.

Once I stencil in the burnt umber and light sand it will look a bit different. I also will put a clear matte acrylic over it all to protect it.

The AR had a basecoat on it of tan for about 2 years just to see how it would hold up.

The boltgun had a woodland scheme to it for over 13 years and held up well!
