Building a match prop and 2 gallons of Duracoat in out of the question. Wink

This is "dark bronze"



"Hammered black matte"



Though the gray base coat has sort of a naval look to it.

Way cool ! Maybe black out the ejection port and barrel shroud holes. I like the Navy look. You need to fix a belt of dummy rounds to that.

Still working on hooking up to the giant "ammo box".



The whole thing is cartoonishly oversized. The barrel shroud is 3" pipe.

No idea why I made the ejection port so high. lol

Parkerizing colored.

Parkerizing varies from damn near black to gray to dark greenish gray to a medium gray with a noticeable greenish tint, so anything in that range would be accurate. Nearly black and very dark gray is the color of new parkerizing, with the variations arising from storage and conditions of use.

I think a real light pass or two with some OD green would give it a pretty convincing parkerized look, based on where you’re at right now.

I hope you’ll show us how it turns out!

Olive drab.

I plan to try some olive drab, that's easy enough to do, easy enough to buy.

The level of care given this project since I started has dropped dramatically due to changes with how the match is being run. Now I'm just slapping it together. Frown

Well, that's a bit of a bummer.

Hey, I would still love to see how it turns out, man. If you're so inclined. But I understand getting over things.

So yeah... half way through I kind of gave up and just slapped it together. Which is probably for the best anyway, too much time and effort was wasted on it as is. Oh well, I'm sure everyone will get a chuckle out of it. I just hope it holds up to 200+ shooters fiddling with it for two days. The ammo tray is a little light weight for that hardig box.I was trying to save weight, which was a mistake.









I set it up yesterday evening for the match this weekend. We have some surplus camo netting and I thought about making a canopy over it. One because it would look cool. Big Grin But more importantly, Police aviation and the Air Guard are right across the street. Not sure how they'll feel about this anti aircraft gun being just off one of the runways. Eek
