T380 Custom Paint Job
Ok, so the little one finally came home today after being pampered all weekend by my manager. And I am rather impressed! I have one final touch to do. I need to refill the model airplane spray and get some on this thing. The stuff makes the paint job hard as a rock so it won't chip but it is made for matt finishes like on the model aircraft.
The little girl is now tan and OD green.
Not the clearest photos, but this gun doesn't seem to like having it's picture taken.
So I need to work on the barrel before shooting it since the slide hangs up on the paint a bit. I think it needs some scrapping followed by some lubricant and it should be fine. Finish it with the clear coat to keep it from chipping (it already has a little, but that's ok... it's spray paint. LOL!) and we're good to go!
Looks good. I would put the clear on and give a couple days to dry good and fire away. It will wear in. They got a thread on the Smith site where some clown is painting then bright red and black.
I like it. How is it holding up?
Great so far. However, it hasn't been removed from a silicon sock since this was done. I haven't found the clear coat I need for it yet, so it hasn't been shot.
