Looks good, a little cumbersome, but good. :)
Since it’s now a little to big for paintball, might I suggest a longer barrel as the next upgrade.

I was thinking the same thing....If this works I can still use it for castle games. When your defending the castle you don't have to move around much. So if it works this will be great!!! I haven't glued the extra air chambers yet. So I debating on turning the tanks and using them as legs for a mortar setup.

Sounds good, use the Launcher Range Calculator (if you can download it still, I heard the link stopped working. Ragnarok, you better be working on the new version!) or the GGDT to figure out what angle would offer the greatest range and set it at that.
Then to adjust range all you have to do is decrease pressure.

Camo man. I've actually seen some spraypaint from krylon I think it was, but it's made for use as a camouflage. it's supposedly very tough and resistant to chipping, and it's flat, not glossy.

It's what I had lying around the house. $.97 @ Wal-Mart....lol Besides, It looks better than no paint. The paint was still a little wet when I took the picture, I am leaning towards the Tiger Stripe myself. I know a very simple technique that produces nice results.

I don't konw what you're thinking of, but if you take some leaves like palm fronds and pull out about every other leaf and spray through that repeatedly with different colors, it can produce quite a nice effect.

If you take 3M painters tape ( the blue kind) and tear the edges of the tape into long strips it creates nice tiger stripes. Arrange them in a pattern you like. Then paint the exposed areas. It will leave black stripes under the tape, remove tape when dry.

Yea that works. I'm trying to find a clip, I saw a movie where a guy did the palm frond camo thing, but I can't remember the name of it for anything.

Yea that's a good one jack. I just like the look you get from the palm fronds.

Jack, I believe that may have been it. Still can't find the clip.

Not palm fronds but he certainly used some kind of foliage as a stencil:
