When I first saw a pic of Tuomo’s blaster, prior to painting, it was bad ass. After painting, he’s taken it to a whole other level.

A refreshing change from the popular 416 and Block I & II impressions, this SPC is Tuomo’s only rifle which isn’t part of a bigger impression. This is the rifle he chose for himself.

Rockin’ a Troy accessory package and brimming with RS, this blaster underlines the Finnish eye for detail and insistence on a job done right. Like Jack’s Block II, the parts list is scary.

Then, painted as follows – with Krylon flat paints:

Brown (maybe Dark Brown?)

Jungle Green

Lastly, to blend it all together, a sponge was dipped in OD and Jungle Green and applied

Just a note on Tuomo’s choice of of VFG. The Troy MCG is often overlooked, but it’s an awesome grip – I had a couple myself. The big difference between this and most VFGs on the market is it’s composed of aluminium and the gripping surface is beautifully knurled. It also comes in three sections – so shaft length is adjustable. Review at Gearscout.

Although Tuomo adds that the MCG’s aluminium is a bit chilly during the Finnish winter. Brrrr! I’m no Viking, so I’ll stick to UK drizzle…
