    Default m40 m42 been haveing a go with.

    this is the m40 i picked up a while ago and thought i better do somthing with it just for something different. it was a norway reissue with ex german liner and chin strap. i rubbed that bad blue house paint of with thiners then sprayed a primmer and dusted sand on it. ive since painted two different greens on it. put i dont think im happy with it still just wanted to see what you all think. and the grey primer is hard to cover up with the final paint job maybe use a green primer next time.
