Thanks. I was unsure about adding the green to the desert camo, but in my area there is green with the brown in the dry Texas environment.

Only annoyance I have is that the nutmeg is a satin, rather than a flat. Need to find a flat nutmeg for the medium brown.

FinLaw, I have used that satin Nutmeg paint on several rifles. Any "shine" is only close up, it don't "shine" at more than a couple of feet. I don't know if shine is actually the best way to describe it, it's just not dead flat. Misting it on by making quick passes at about 18" away from the part and allowing it to dry for a few minutes between passes is the best way to deaden it even further.

Aervoe makes lots of dead flat military colors, places like DSG Arms and others have them.

Great work on both but I really like the lower, forest tiger stripe very much. Of course I live in New England where there ain't no desert ;)
