Thanks daffy, it probably took a total of 10-12 hours including drying time! I just put time in here and there whenever it was nice outside and had it done pretty quick. Now I have to find something else to occupy my time or I will keep spending all my money on hunting stuff!! :biggrin:

I like the pattern , very simple but effective . Did you airbrush it ? What type of paint and colors did you use ? :thumbsup:

Thanks, I actually used Krylon Flat spray paint for the base and exterior house paint for the details. I would have used an airbrush if I had one, but this way turned out ok. There were quite a bit of colors but I will try to list most of them:

Krylon Automotive Primer (As base)
Krylon Khaki Brown
Krylon Flat Black
Krylon OD Green

The exterior paints that I used with a brush were:

Nutmeg, OD Green and Taupe

There is a sticky in the shotgun forum that has step by step instructions if you wanted to take a look. :thumbsup:
