Snazzy. A good clean and new feel to the Garand. I like the bullets most, they look great.

Oh please no, the photo-skinned bullets look like they are glowing, try skinning your own.

Check my post on your carbine for more detailed crits.

I like the bullets most, they look great. REALLY? They look color and contrast washed-out to me.

i will redo the .30 caliber bullets. They do look kinda out of place sort of speak. I thought they looked pretty snazy at first but now they just look weird.

High res textures give me diarrhea.

The metal is kind of odd looking.

You say something to that effect in every WIP and Release topic you post in ...we get don't use high resolution weapon textures. Drop it, already.

Yes, the metal does look too bright.

Did you use the grain filter a lot in making that metal? Looks like it. It's really too much grain. The brightness of the metal also contrasts too much with the color of the wood, tone it down a bit.

Yea, how would it look if you took the wood from the first one and the second ones metal and combined them, vis versa with the other textures, the bullets look alot nicer in the second one as well

very good but a couple of problems

*metal to bright
*way to much noise
*Wood has to much noise and brightness

It will be very very good once you fix those!!
Hey nad could you pm me and tell me how you make your metal?

i have decided to go with the dark wood they used in band of brothers and i tried to reskin the metal to what i might have looked liked in the mini-series
