Topic: WIP Goldeneye Piton Gun - Help for paint

Hi gents,

I need your sharp little eyes!!   ajb007/biggrin - your teeth will be for another time -

It's time for the paint job... and I could use your inputs on the green color.
I have selected couple of tones and I have my favorite but I'm also totally open to additional idea.

I know that it is a subjective complex exercise and sorry for
- the light (I tried different ones)
- the different objects used, I was short on spoon

Thanks in advance for your feedback  ajb007/martini
- François

The green is British OD green, which looks to me like NATO green as you call it

Thanks mate. I am asking because I did not get the chance to see the prop myself so far...

And, depending of the light, all pictures are different...
Some are more gray, some dark green other really blue... I don't really know...

Here just some examples when you just Google it..

Dark green

Donk seconds your opinion Pete.

I'm gonna try to find a British OD green or a paint in this tone - the Nato green is close -

Re: WIP Goldeneye Piton Gun - Help for paint

You need a Pantone chart to find the right color.....but if paint was custom made or created by a mix, it will be a difficult task to find the right one !!!!
