Depends I prefer a 'two tone' style jobs- black and od, black and tan etc

I'm not a huge fan even on sniper rifles and definitley no on assault rifles, however there's always a few exceptions:

Long story short, they have to be bloody good, otherwise they ruin the look. 'Worn effects' can look good though.

Hydro-dipping interests me though, seen a few examples out and about, looks great- but one of the rifles I've seen with it had worn quite badly- not sure how much use it's seen though and I'm sure a matt varnish would help

personally i prefer the battered and scuffed look for my kit as nothing says looks like craigs gun than a broken stock, grip, front sight, sling, bipod, ect ect but then again as said above a good paint job and its boss and a bad one and you will be known as the bloke with the F in art B)

I've been looking into this recently oddly enough! The dipping itself is not a permanent coating, you're supposed to give it a few coats of clear before you use it. Sounds like that wasn't done or the undercoat/primer was wrong and the pattern didn't take properly.

 

I spend more time making/modding guns than I do playing these days so most of my paintjobs are done to amuse myself. Some look good, some look bad. I've been going through a digital phase at the moment. Lots of fiddly templates and coats of paint:

but your G36...

 

anyway, it depends how they're done, someone who does some bright tan or has a mix of aftermarket parts it can look tacky although I do like the SF dusted look or when someone has a decent job at a camo.

 

I may very well be spraying my shotgun and the next m4 i get A-TACS or A-TACS FG
