I too must respectfully disagree with you. Take a picture of that gunstock to a painter (or yourself if your that good) and tell him you want your gunstock painted in 6 hours or less to match the picture. Good luck with that.
I have had custom paint work done many times before, trust me, you are talking way more time than 6 hours to try and replicate that, even with base/clear. That's even assuming your artistically that good. I'm not.
We have a person in this city who can do custom paint work like that. I have watched his work before. He would have waaaay more hours than 6 hours to make that gunstock painted like (think of how many colours are there..and shading) that and then cleared and buffed.
I have currently 100 hours into the single colour paint work on my car to bring it to that shine. If you have someone who can do stuff like that in 6 hours or less, give me his number as I need some graphics done on my car.
I did not suggest for one second this could be done on 1/16 tanks for the reasons you suggested.
