    camo patterns

    I want to paint some gear camo. Is there anywhere you can find patterns online to print. I'd like to cut them out and make stencils. I googled and found nothing of use. You guys know of anywhere??
    Come and take them, Boolits first.

    I usually go to the floral section of my local Wally-World and buy a fake fern and other foliage varieties and use them as stencils. They tend to hold up better than the real thing with the exception of pine/fir/spruce boughs. I haven't seen any stencils for free, though Cabela's, MPW and a few other places sell them. You'll usually find them in with the waterfowl hunting stuff.

    In the Military one uses two main patterns each covering 45%. Then two alternating colors of 5% each. I still may have the instructions for painting wheeled and tracked vehicles as well as aircraft.

    A gun is so small that one may want to use an airbrush.

    Camo

    FN, I have a truck to paint. Might just cross my mind to worry these Cali neighbors of mine. I would be interrested in those instructions if you find them.

    Wolf,

    Let me see what I have left. I may just send You the manual and You can return it when done. It's really pretty easy. Properly spraying on the two 5% patterns makes or bnreaks how it comes out.
