    Thank you. I used Dull Aluminum w/ Rub n Buff for the metal areas, Dark Hunter for the cheeks and ear areas, and a non Krylon Moss Green for the other areas. I can't remember off the top of my mind who makes the moss green, but it is a unique shade that has a very natural yet pale feel to it.

    Thanks. TK, the RnB was HORRIBLE! I was seriously pretty sure that I was going to have to start over again. Luckily that wasn't the case.

    Saw it over in "Jango", but I'll say here, that it looks great!

    Thanks a lot! Oh yeah, I just weathered it up last night and striped it. It looks awesome now! The weathering really brought it to life. It hakes the metal look very convincing. I brought it to work to show a few people and they were surprised that it was light because they thought that is was all metal. I think I want to finish the rangefinder assembly first and then I will post the completed pictures.

    Thank you very much. I used Black "Delta Ceramcoat" Acrylic Paint that I got at Michaels for the weathering. I applied it with a synthetic (nylon) sponge, unthinned. I just kept reblotting it very thin and reapplying as necessary. I used an angled sponge and a fine brush to get in corner areas.

    The base was a fiberglass take of a DP 95.
