    range finder lense

    I just finished painting my ESB style solid resin range finder, and was wonder what most people are using to paint the lense on it. It seems to me gloss black wouldn't quite look right.

    Thanks- Pat

    Re: range finder lense

    What I've done to simulate scope lenses on resin blasters is to take one of those plastic "portfolio" covers (you can find them at office supply stores) and cut out an appropriate sized circle and glue it in. I like to use Testors clear parts cement, and just put a few TINY dots around the circumference. It dries really clear and looks pretty good.

    Oh yeah, if you can find one of those covers in a "smoked gray" color, it gives a pretty good imitation of dark glass.

    Hope that wasn't too confusing.

    Thats a good idea But I have a sargent fang range finder and the lense comes outward so I actually do have to paint it.
