I've been doing this biology for about 4 hours.. done one page so far.

 

And to keep kinda on topic, any ideas how I can get rid of my horrible shiny black plastic on my L96? Also, colour suggestions are nice, fancy a change :)

Seconded, OD L96's are the only way to go. OD rifles look good in general

I was thinking OD. Now, any tips on painting it? Apart from the obvious like disassemble, cover parts you don't want painted up, etc?

Krylon. That's pretty much it. I don't do anything to my rifles apart from rub them down with a lint free soft cloth - to make sure there's no loose particles. I think they come out pretty well.

 

Oh and there's the biggest tip. Patience. That goes miles.

Yeah, forgot to mention that with spray paints that aren't krylon you'll need to sand the surfaces first.

I'll get myself some OD Krylon, and have a go at painting.

I've got some scuffs & chips on my outer barrel, which are silver, where the rest is black. Tips on that? Or just sand it down a bit and paint over the whole thing black?

White camo?

 

And yeah, painting the whole barrel would be a better idea

Nick, that picture won't load. But I won't be getting white camo, unless there's an ice age some time soon.

EDIT: maybe slightly darker colours but what i'm saying is if you're going to re-spray then get a good camo look

Nope, still nothing. I don't think that tan or brown belong on an L96 and obviously the internet doesn't either ;)

I found the picture you posted Nick, as it wouldn't load from your link.

Anyway, it's not too nice.. but if a mountain suddenly sprouts from no-where in the middle of Norfolk, and somehow becomes an airsoft site - I will paint my L96 in that camo just for you.

Maybe, apart from the fact that there aren't any hay bales at my local site, so it wouldn't be too helpful really.
