Ok it's time for the Ghillie suit. The suit for one man contains ghillie pants, ghillie jacket and ghillie hood.
I am using the BBI pants and Jacket that also came with BBI "Snake".
This is the material I am using, it's the ghillie string stuff that came with BBI sniper "Snake".
I don't like the way it looks, and I don't like the color. My aim is to make it as realistic as possible.
First stap, unravel the strings with a pair of tweezers.
Pull the material through the net that is attached on the pants/jacket.
Than super glue each individual string on to the net. First drop of glue where the arrow is poiting.
Second drop of glue where arrow A is poiting, and the string is fixed.
Arrow B is poiting to some other material I am using. I bought it from OpsGear when they were into 1/6. (not anymore
I first glue this stuff onto the net and than unravel it.
Not every piece of net is camouflaged with string, I'll let the strings overlap eachother, it will give it a more realistic
look instead of a fuzzy the bear look.
This is how the material looks like after the first layer of paint. Here is how I did it: I used Model Masters 1710 E,
a type of green paint. I used turpentine to make the paint thinner. Than I applied it with an old sponge. If you plan do use
this technic, do this outside or in a well ventilated room!!
When it's dry I'll give it a second layer of paint.
Here are the 2 snipers, the guy on the left is DML Roy, he is the spotter, the guy on the right is DML Larry and he's
I made the camopaint myself using different kind of paint, I think it came out really nice.
The heads are glued on BBI G1 necks.
