A quick mouse paint job for my G9x. 

 

Because of where I work I have access to actual military issue paints. 

 

 

 

I have never played COD, so goodbye decals. (The COD version was cheaper)

 

Blue striping tape covers the spots I don't want covered in military green.

 

 

I would have preferred the flat paint look, but it would have turned to mush under my hand. So a catalyzed clear coat was necessary.

When I saw the heatsink and the gun, I was like, "BLASPHEMY".

Finally saw what you did it it and I must say it actually went quite well. Looking forward to future updates. biggrin.gif

Using this shear and some sheets of aluminum to make some panels to cover the front HDD and optical cages. 

 

 

 

 

More on these panels in a bit...

 

 

 

 

First, want to thank my local Air Force Base for donating these injection molded models.

 

 

 

 

 

The stuff you find on ebay....

 

 

 

Take one of those paint roller things that go in a gallon can and modify it a bit with a dremel...

 

 

Choose one of those airplane models (the F-35), paint it flat black, attach it to the modified paint strainer, and now add the painted aluminum panels, F-35, 4-star general pins, and Spartan badge.

 

 

 

 

 

 

(Higher quality and more complete pictures will come with the final shoot.)

The building of the M1919 was easily the thing that was giving me the most anxiety because I knew that I would be building this from nothing. I did a lot of research and finally thought of what I wanted to do. This is the inspiration:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I decided to instead of building an exact replica, to just base my design on it. So enjoy the results.

 

Redwood stock

 

 

Rout out the action slot.

 

 

Used a drill to "lathe" an action lever.

 

 

 

 

 

Used PVC pipes to make the barrels. (Yep, barrels. With an "S".)

 

 

 

 

 

So much harder than it looks.

 

 

 

Have to hollow out the middle. (You'll see why in a bit.)

 

 

 

Time for primer. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Adding accessories...

 

 

 

 

 

Black paint. (Obviously)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Drying....

 

 

 

 

Going to put these in the barrels of the M1919.

 

 

 

 

Had to do custom wiring to make the wire run through the body of the gun.

 

 

 

To mount the gun to the top of the case I had to remove the top handle and attach the picatinny rail with rivets. 

 

 

To make the gun be able to swivel I had to make a custom hinge out of aluminum strips.

 

 

 

 

Riveted the hinge to the rail clamps. 

 

Attached the hinges and clamps to the gun.

 

 

Bought a chain of plastic bullets for the gun. Geeze they look bad....

 

 

 

 

This should fix it.

 

 

 

 

Much better.

 

Sorry for no final pics of the gun. They will be finished this weekend. Just be patient. ;)

Nice, something different for a change, definitely haven't seen this before. And nice execution too.
The only thing that's bothering me a bit are the heatshrinks which are not all othe same length
(or does it just look that way on the pics) on the sleeving (sorry, I'm very picky about that sort of
thing wink.gif), but if you really want that can easily be fixed (or, you could go for heatshrinkless, which
personally I actually think is easier to get right).

But other than that this looks really great IMO, definitely looking forward to how it turns out. thumb.gif

I know. frown.gif I noticed the heart shrinks being different lengths too. It was my first time ever doing sleeving, so unfortunately I was more focused on not screwing it up. I didn't even notice until I was finished. I will see what I can do to fix it. I had to use my own makeshift tools to do it so hopefully they still work.

No worries man. I have done a bit of heatshrink sleeving myself, and I have found it to be
rather time-consuming to get it looking really perfect. If you're not too set on using heatshrink:
the heatshrinkless paracord technique is actually quite a bit easier in my experience. But of
course tastes differ, if you really like the heatshrink style then by all means go for it. smile.gif
