    Hey guys,
    You guessed it!, it’s me Linkpimp again (with another one of my what did you do now threads) Hahahahaaaa.. This time I’m just screwing around with some ammo box’s.. If your asking yourself (WHY?) then you don't know me do you.. LOL.LOL..

    Much like all of my projects this is another first!, I’ve never painted any ammo boxs and you’ve properly never seen a painted ammo box (let alone in Zombie camo) so this should be first for both of us.. LOL…

    First off, let me say (looking for an excuse) This is my first project were I went all free hand it was a *****!!! I need to work (practice) on my pistol’s (big time) LOL.LOL… Overall I think it turned out ok… I think I need to add more smoke (I think?). Hey team!, does the color of the helmet look right?? I’m thinking it really needs to be green? Or something else??. Also can you see the netting on the helmet? Does that look ok?? It was my first netting job, anyway I hope you like it, if not, that’s cool too.. Just please tell me why you don't like it so I can luern from my mistakes..

    Thank you for your time gentlemen and have a great weekend..

    For the life of me, I just can't believe that the walls of your house are one solid color. Am I wrong? I think it would be a great practical joke to paint a zombie head on somebody's wall while they were away. When they turn the light on, Boom! Zombie Face!

    Not to answer for tbh, only for me. When I say that, it isn't a bad thing-just a personal taste thing. I was in a house the other day and they had someone do a really cool Tuscan theme on the walls. Looked like stucco and brick instead of drywall. I don't know exactly how it was done, but it was amazing. I remember saying to my wife later-that isn't really my style but it sure was cool.

    So, while the ammo cans may not exactly be my style, the really are cool. It's amazing how much talent some people have. I'd be happy if I could just paint them a solid color without it running and slap a Glock sticker on it. Maybe I will go try that in a minute.
