Well my wonderful wife bought me a very nice airbrush for xmas. So today I stopped by the local hobby shop, and grabbed a few different colors of paint. I got home and started to lay out what I wanted to do.

I started off with the stock of a CA M24. I first laid down a base coat of khaki and left the rifle sit for a day or two, just to make sure that the base coat was good and dry. And then sit and wait for a few "goodies" to come for my air brush.

Today in the mail came the parts that I was waiting for. So I wasted no time in getting set up and spraying some paint. The paint that I was using is a water based paint, so there is no nasty smell and with that no wife complaining about the smell ;)

Well here is what I started with........



Here is the equipment that I used.....



Iwata airbrush kit, with various paint

After an hour or so of playing with the brush, and getting used to it, this is what I was able to do...........

wait for it...

wait for it...



Left side of the stock, entire stock



Close up of the left side



Front tip of the stock



Right side of the stock

Now this is just the first thing that I have airbrushed in a very long time. The last thing that I airbrushed was an airplane model while I was still in jr. high. So it has been quite some time.

Let me know what you guys think! As soon as the paint is dry I will put the rifle in her and get a complete picture.

I have the rifle in the stock, but it doesn't look so good in my living room.

I will get some outside pictures here tomorrow. And sitting here looking at it, the fore end is really reminding me of flectran or something like that.

I do think that I went a "little" over board with the skulls. But I was wanting to see what it would look like, and honestly it looks really sweet in person.

With some more work I could make it a ton better. And again this is just the first ;)

Very nice woogie, very nice. ;)

You should really consider putting up a for sale thread and doing some business here. A lot of guys would love to have some of your paint on their rifles.

Again, great work, hot stuff!
