Hello everyone. I'm putting together a 1969 Viet Nam reenactment impression (9th Inf Div, light infantry).
I was able to purchase a couple of cheap Airsoft M-16 A1's from ebay, which suit my needs perfectly. EXCEPT...the reciever is black, and it looks like plastic.
My plan was to primer the parts I want to look like gun metal, paint 2 coats of silver, then paint the gun metal colour. Then I'll use some fine sandpaper to weather it.
Problem is, I have no idea what the gunmetal colour actually is. It looks like this:
I don't have an airbrush so mixing colours will be tough...is there a spray can colour from a model paint company that will get me the above colour? It's kind of a green-grey colour or something.
