    I'm trying to find time to spray it on my Izzy cover. All the finish is worn off and it just has the phosphate left. Hopefully I'll get time this week.

    I have to say this paint definitely exceeded my expectations... We owe Techno a debt of gratitude for taking the time to research and put this together for us...

    This is a PSL brake painted with Techno's paint compared to a real deal factory original Tula paint... The paint on this gas tube doesn't get anymore classic squid ink Tula black and in my opinion, its a dead match... Even under a flashlight the two paints are absolutely identical in every way...

    I will be painting more items soon... I will post more pics in better lighting tomorrow...

    Looks great. Did you use an airbrush to apply?

    What better example of the benefits or procrastination. I set aside several Soviet kits to build, but have only gotten around to doing one so far. Thank goodness I waited, now all the rest will be painted "post-techno"!

    Yea I used a 3oz. Harbor Freight airbrush... I want to try the gravity fed HPLV next... I have a feeling it will produce much better results... Because the paint is so thin, the air brush made the paint very fuzzy and textured... Keep in mind I didn't adjust any settings or psi on the air, I just hooked up and sprayed...

    All I can think about is these amazing kits you see popping up lately. The hand-selects, original barreled RPKS, and others... The though of using any other paint for those great kits is sinful... Again, Techno has moved the authenticity of these historical firearms forward big time.

    This paint appears to be awesome. Maybe my 2+ year wait for all of my receivers from 74ullc is a blessing in disguise since none of my hand select stamped kits have been built yet. Now they can hopefully be built and painted with this paint and be so much more authentic.

    Looks good Maadi -

    Just putting this out there --- as far as ORIGINAL production painting goes (not refurb)
    The Russian drawing set shows that detail parts and sub assemblies are painted individually at those levels, whereas the sub assembly of the populated barreled receiver is then painted after fitting. The top level assembly drawing points out to touch up (as needed) with brush, as all the sub assemblies come together. Parts that are painted on the detail/subassembly level would be Topcover, gas tube, cleaning rod, bolt, carrier, buttplates and sling swivels, FCG, etc. This is why some parts would have a different texture/flatness/glossyness than others.
    The equipment used to paint in a production environment would most likely be a 2-3 gallon pressure pot at 80 PSI, with final air pressure at gun to be controlled by painter at time of application (probably 35-40 psi). The painter also would control any additional thinning of paint required, depending on temperature & humidity to achieve the final film thickness per spec. (age of mixed paint would play here as well) This is explained in some of the more general Russian military paint docs with the options of substitute materials, thinners, etc to be determined by painter. The final results (texture/appearance wise) vary more because of technique and conditions on a particular day, than the paint itself.
    Using a HVLP gun designed for automotive 2 part paints should mimic the old pressure pot system pretty well. Air brushes (as noted prior) dont work too well with the thicker viscosity paints as they are really designed for very thin viscosity coatings.
    -
    I havent gotten to use Techno's paint yet, but it sure looks like you can get whatever look you want from it at the user level, which is the end goal. The differences between TULA & IZZY finishes from different years have alot of factors involved, including possible paint formula/requirement changes, yet as long as the end finish matches to our eyes our goal is accomplished. IMHO.

    I am in the same boat here as well. I have an 86 Krink and love it but the parts that were painted during the build are a little too gray and it has always bugged me. Would love to have those parts redone with the right stuff.

    Strangely this stuff gets glossier as you thin it. I guess it's laying smoother. It's possible to make it glossier than the Tula kits lol.

    To flatten it out just heat the gun first, for the super flat polish builds.

    I am going to offer a thinner in a couple weeks. I guess I am surprised I haven't sold more. I sent Ted M. some to use on my AK105, I am sending some to Larry Vickers and a few other ppl.

    I just ordered all new tools so I will finish my two tantals and I have a RPK74M that will be a complete paint job with it, so we will have more examples.
