    @Darth, I'm hoping to give it away at CES...still working out details

    @Lee, thanks bro!

    Painting the machined aluminum bullet thumbscrews to look more authentic.





    The surface is first prepped, using red scotch brite pad to scuff the bare aluminum


    Is that a "cribbage board" for thumbscrews?, drilling holes in a piece of wood, works great for holding thumbscrews for paint. The threads were taped off.


    For maximum paint adhesion, we use SEM brand self etching primer for the base coat


    A couple coats of grey self etching primer


    for holding the bullet thumbscrews, tape the bullet thumbscrews to paint stick





    Paint entire bullet first copper color first, mask off the tip after cured, then paint the shell brass color.



    After the paint has cured, I dry brushed the shells with "Antiquing Gel" by Home Decor. "Dry brushing" means you are painting with a brush that is almost 100% dry. It's an easy way to create a weathered effect or highlights. These are machined aluminum bullet thumbscrews



    After 2 hours, the "Antiquing Gel" had cured. The final coat is a "Flat" Clear coat aerosol paint by KRYLON

    Thanks! More detailing ahead..



    I'm adding lil weathering beneath rack handles



    rack handles for bezel, give it more "field equipment" look



    I torn-up scotch-brite pads are great for adding blotchy or speckled paint effect..



    After I airbrushed over the Orange paint areas.... I also shaded over the "BF3" text...



    Ok, now it's Break time, Who is open at 11pm? hmm White Castle SLIDERS!

    We need more Billet Bullet Thumbscrews! these will be lodged in the window holes...

    Oh you suck.. we don't have a White Castle out here in Texas, and how I loved them while stationed at Red Stone Arsenal. And the stuff you get at Wal*Mart in the freezer section is just not the same thing.
