Paint a Phoenix LTX Lazer Tag Gun

 I was given the assignment at work to "mod" this gun for a client pitch, I decided to do paint and a few LEDs (unfortunately the LEDs didn't workout, but the paint did).  So hears a step by step how I did it and a few things I learned along the way.

Step 1: Step 1: Plan your color scheme

Picture of Step 1: Plan your color scheme
I decided to go for a "black ops" scheme, which I thought would go well with the hunter orange triggers and switches, but of course it's totally up to you.

The type of painted that I used was a model car paint, but I'm sure other types of plastic paint would also work well.  I was very pleased with the final product using the model paint, it looks great and thus far has been resistant to scratches and wear.

Some things to keep in mind when planning your color scheme:
 - there are some very intricately molded parts of the case making a two color scheme appear to be very difficult to execute.
 - you may want to plan out any additional mods to your case prior to planning your color scheme
