Ok, this is the one from a week ago, but it's weathered and I decided to try out the totally non-functional magazine. Just for looks! :)

How did you achieve the weathered look? I'm split between a metallic base-coat / flat main-coat sanded down for weathering and brushing on metallic 'weathering'.

Also, did you use a clear-coat seal? I imagine your paintjobs are just as smooth as the stock gun, haha.

Questions aside, commenting now, WELL DONE SIR. You have inspired me!

Thanks Matt!  The weathering is generally done with layers, I try not to sand anything down unless I absolutely have to.  I consider it cheating a bit :)   What you see here is mostly light over dark paint, but beyond that it must remain a mystery, haha.  Check out drybrushing to get some ideas!

As for clearcoat, I definitely do.  It's the only thing to help protect the paint from sweat and oils in the skin.  Most of the pieces end up in some kind of display setting, but I do expect them to be handled so I do what I can to help the finish last a long time.

Thank you for the questions and comments and I hope you enjoy yourself here on dA, it's a great community of people on here!

I made it with vinyl. It's nice and crisp, just a little on the expensive side if you have to get it made at a sign shop :)

On this it did not, but we make curved magazines that hold 6 actual rounds and have the look of being a longer magazine - mainly for show, but it's cool to have people thing you found a way to bend 'em around a curve :)
