Talking Modded TM-15

I posted this in the BT section but that doesnt get much action around here. Here are some before and after pictures of my modded TM-15. I did all the body mods with hand saws, files and various sandpapers. No dremels here.

Before:



After!













I chopped half of the foreguard off with a fine hacksaw. Then I filed everything nice and even with flat files. Finally polished it all up with 400 grit wet sanding. Then it got a full paint treatment. The pics are kind of crappy but the marker is actually three colors (olive, tan and dark brown.) I also made the mock suppressor. PVC, epoxy, bondo and lots of filing/sanding. overall Im really happy with the results. As it sits its lighter than my AGD E-Tac was.

I must be going crazy...

In the third after pic, I can see brown, but the rest it looks tan and green.
Looks amazing with the tan and brown, the green is kinda bleh.

I like it A LOT more now that it's shorter, than when it was uncut.

Good job man, looks professional.

Those are brown indeed, in all but the 3rd modified pic where everything that used to be green is now brown... But maybe they are a tiny bit darker in that pic too.

I did a little color adjust on this one. Its much closer to the real colors. You can actually see that the TM lettering and controlls are brown in this one.

i have never been a fan of markers that look like guns, but there always is an exception and this is it. i think it looks sick especially if all the green was brown. good job that is the way it should look from the factory.

The color choice is mainly a playing environment thing. I live in SW Florida. Lotsa green bushes and tan field grasses. I almost always wear Multicam. Ive had to stay away from the dark patterns (digital woodland and the like) as it just stands out too much here.

Not DC yet. This was a color trial test. I used Krylon Fusion CAMO. Its much tougher than the standard Fusion colors. Dries ultra flat too.

You can get suprisingly good results from a rattle can if you take your time.

I will be stripping the whole thing down to bare metal before I Duracoat it though. Some of the parts are really tight since there are several layers of paint.
