I know that this has been covered in other topics, but I'm just about to finish my EE-3. The base has been black with dull red undercoat slightly sprayed everywhere. Repeated couple of times, and now the blaster has a nice, rusty feeling from which to finish the deal. I would post a picture for you, but the result would not stand so well in ordinary light. At daylight, the gun looks like a rusted piece of **** What colours would be the best direction from here? Note that I have to be extra careful with painting, as the whole deal is to be fully functional airsoft weapon. Thanks!
