Cool Camoflauge Schemed hopper

I used model paint on my hopper and made a 3-tone urban camouflage scheme. My webcam is kind of crappy when it comes to colours, but it looks cool in person.

How to do it: unscrew your vl200 hopper into its two halves, and begin painting on one side.

You will need enamel model paint such as Testors, and the following colours:

Arctic white
Battle gray

The idea is to make the most of the area Gray, then add the arctic white in river-like patterns. Try to paint directly onto the plastic, do not paint the whole thing gray or the white will come out smudgy. Then, once you have the two-colour scheme use battle gray to thickly surround the white patterns on the hopper. You will paint over top of the regular gray and it will become a darker colour.

*Remember to do one side of the hopper first, then hold them together and follow the pattern onto the other side.
