Initial work on my ghillie

Recommended Posts

Here is the first test fitting of my ghillie. There are a few patches here and there but my friend in the marines has said this is good as it creates a 3D object rather than a 'smooth' covering of jute. The photo's are not tactical as I wanted people to be able to see the ghillie clearly.

 

I would appreciate people comments and views

 

I have not cam'd up my Dragunov yet, so hence it isn't in the photo's

looking very nice. I'm guessing you used levelcaps video? Would love to see a picture with the dragonuv camoed up and the ghillie, but its coming along very nicely!

Levelcaps video??? Not seen it

 

I had an old ghillie lying about and just stripped it back to the Webtex Mesh and then layered it with jute and hessian strips

 

I'm not sure whether to spray a few bits of it with darker earth tones?

Good work :) I am going to start mine soon but just need to source some jute / hessian material and glue. I already have a DPM BDU shirt and paracord.

Oh maybe it wasn't you then, I saw someone getting pointed to level caps bids for ghillie making. Anyway adding some darker colours would be nice however I don't know the place where you play at so whether it is effective or not Idk... Great pictures as well☺

By WebTex mesh did you mean a scrim net sort of thing? I saw decorative net was suggested for making a ghillie suit but the stuff I found doesn't look right (as in the size of the holes / spaces in the netting looks too big sort of)

I used this as a base layer. Very well ventilated and does exactly what it says on the tin :) I ditched the hood in favour of a separate cap and scrim

I think I know the stuff you are referring to, is it the cam net that they use for vehicles?

Looks good but you'd benefit from more green tones I think, unless it's just the lighting it looks a little flat in terms of colour.

It more earthy in reality, the photo's make it look like straw haha

 

But saying that I am buying a few cans of dark green, brown and black this weekend :)
