Hosted by Rabbit(Backup): icarus.ifastnet.com/airsoft/Multicam.html (Note: I did not write it. This is a backup in case AirsoftForums goes down again. I have backed up all images incase of bandwidth overuse. I also modified it slightly so that its more 56k friendly)
Dont know if this link has been posted on here before. I did a little searching and didnt find it. I dont really like AirsoftForums.com but it does have its good informatino hear-and-there. And it does a decent job showing you how to multicam your weapons.
When I did Jacko's M14 (pictures of which you can find in the Multicam thread in this section as well as in the Gallery), I started out wanting to spray everything, but quickly came to the conclusion that using the stencils wasn't giving me the effect I wanted. I unded up using an airbrush for much of the work, but several of the "blotchy" colors (notably the darkest brown and lightest tan) were actually applied with a brush.
It should also be pointed out that when you're finished painting, you'll need to seal the gun to combat wear and tear. The best way to accomplish this is to use a glossy coat first (as these tend to have a more durable finish), followed by several coats of matte sealer (which will dull the surface to remove any shine). Jacko has been skirmishing with his M14 a number of times, and he tends to put some "hard miles" on his replicas. Last time I looked at it, there were only 1 or two scratches that went through to primer, and they were both pretty small.
Alrighty then, I went and made a quick little backup of the original document for this tutorial because I believe it is very useful. This is so that incase AirsoftForums.com goes down again the tutorial is still able to be used as a refrence. I also backed up all images incase bandwidth becomes and issue.
My backup is simplistic with viewer images. The images removed are not needed to perform the tutorial. All "step-by-step" pictures were left on there. Images showing about 5 different outcomes from other people were removed. The only text on the document is the tutorial itself. There are no user comments ect. its just the tutorials pictures and text on a white background. Its all simplistic so its user friendly, the tutorial however, may be difficult. I did not write it so dont point the finger twords me.
