    silver paint type for ESB Fett sidearm?

    Greetings Fetts,

    I have one of the cool, light brown gelcoated ESB Fett sidearms and was told that Boltgun Metal, a paint by: Games Workshop is a good one to use for painting the silver parts. Does anyone else have a suggestion? Any and all info would be helpful. Thanks!

    Honestly, I just used a chrome paint, clear coated it and slightly rub n' buffed it. Looks good in my opinion.

    Yeah, I ended up using Krilon Chrome paint. It dried on the light brown gelcoating in 2 minutes. I couldn't belive it! I ended up putting 3 coats on just in case. It came out great!
