    Well, I used the same automotive Gray Primer I used to prime everything as the color of choice, misting it a little bit with flat black for weathering, and then doing all the scratches with Testors silver. The black stripes I did them before the weathering.

    You could use flat white, and misted lightly with grey (more grey than white) and then do the stripes and the weathering, but it's your choice. The actual automotive grey primer is the closest you could get, but you could lightly mist it with silver spray paint for shine of some kind...you're choice.

    Bob, I used Testor's Model Masters Flat Gull Gray, in a spray can. I wanted something different than the any of the main colors of the pack, but not too gray. It might not be screen-accurate, but I like the color shade, kind of a gray-beige.

    It's not very often in one's life that you get to say that to a group of people!!

    I just got 'finished' my thruster balls, and couln't wait to put a pic up. These are made from styrofoam filled, plastic coated christmas tree bulbs (purchased at hobby lobby), air freshener cones, some pvc, cardboard and (of course) BONDO!

    My dirty ball :


    The reference pic:


    Both of my dirty balls:


    Let's hope the rest of my scratch-pack turns out as accurate!

    Yep, I've got to say, nice set of balls you have there!

    In all seriousness, that is a very detailed piece. You are going to fool pretty much everyone with those puppies. Only those who bend down and inspect them really closely are going to notice any difference.

    *checks post to make sure no dirty jokes possible* - bend down, inspect balls - Nope, pretty clean to me

    Nice work!

    There's no beating your balls my friend!

    Nice work.

    Sad part is, you probably made them in less time than what I've invested in trying cleaning up my MB balls.

    That's right, you heard me people, I'm cleaning MB's balls!!

    GROW UP!

    from 6.5 to 7 cm across, but unlike many (most) jet packs I see, mine is man-sized. I saw one pic of a jet pack with a helmet in a recent post and the thing looks like the perfect size...if you were planning to strap it to your helmet!!!

    If people will look at the reference pics, they will see that the jet pack is shoulder with.

    Some balls are held for chairty, and some for fancy dress, but when they're held for pleasure are the ones that I like best.

    NICE BALLS!

    I'm not so sure about the rod they're attached to, though.

    Oh well, as long as it moves correctly, I'm sure it will satisfy.

    Your balls need to be polished.

    This is almost as bad as us guys asking each other to look at our helmets

    PS. I'm not sure if that has the same meaning in the US as it does in the UK

    No, it does. I've asked my g/f to polish my helmet numerous times. For some reason she doesn't think it's as funny as I do...
