Well, I went to the zoo a few weeks ago, and was inspired:



Giraffes look cool. Really cool. I need this on a gun.

Enter Girafflage:











JG AUG, lots of custom cut masking tape (originally too wide), one can of "almond" and one of "dark brown" later, and I have a Giraffe pattern AUG. Win. Yes, I did this quickly, so there's some overspray and some rough tape junctions, but the overall effect is there. I did this in a hurry, and wasn't terribly concerned with perfection. I could have cut the tape even thinner, but it's actually kinda scaled to a real giraffe, lol...

I'm thinking this would be a good uniform, minus the apron and with multicam pants:

Well the giraffe is camouflaged for an African landscape so I guess it would be effective there.

It's very funny and cool regardless. Very Happy Nice paint job.

Nice Camo Idea, the first gun that allows you to hide behind a giraffe!

WOOT I love that Girraffe ha ha

Nice camo paint lol. I don't know if it will blend with anything unless you plan to be riding animals while playing airsoft. ha ha

You did a great job though. Were you bored? lol It does look sick, but I don't think it is very practical lol. (kinda like Red Tiger lol)

nice job though

I was very bored. After almost finishing my 1911, M4, and M3 raceguns, I needed another project.

Next up is an MB03 sniper rifle done up to match the raceguns.

Polished and texture painted. Hot.

Oh my...

you know at first I just thought you were off your nut, but after a second glance it occurred to me that it actually breaks up the profile pretty well.

Could work in a desert or urban setting.

Lol...never thought I'd actually have good things to say about it but there it is.

^Lol, this was never designed for game use, and will probably never see a day of gameplay, but I think it actually could work in the desolate types of land that I play in.

It was mostly because once I get my heart and mind on something, I do it. I wanted a giraffe gun, so I got one, lol.

Stealth thats a good idea, except if you ride animals, for camo, well it might work, but probably everyone will be riding a horse. ANd he will be riding a giraffe. so the camo doesnt work

Ok first thoughts were ROFL. But i have to agree with everyone else. It looks great. Perhaps different colors for different environments would be something else to consider.
