After talking with several painters about a paint-up for an ROTJ lid, I have decided to go ahead and paint it up myself (scary, but exciting at the same time!).
This is a beautiful Fettpride fiberglass that I purchased from a member here. Wife will be out of town on Thursday through Sunday so I hope to get some good work in between now and then on it.
I'll be using Stormtrooperguy's ROTJ spray can paint list and following Welshwarrior's tutorials. While I realize there's metal options for the rangefinder, borden and such, I'm going to stick with the resin materials that came with the kit.
I have posted two pictures and do have a few "noob" questions (forgive me!)
1. For the ears on the ROTJ lid: I'm assuming these are painted the metallic color and weathered in some way (graphite powder) am I correct?
2. What the easiest way to put the rangefinder together? Is there any good tutorials out there and my other question is what's the best way to put it together where I can take it apart and place the LEDs in later?
Thanks guys for any help!!! It's greatly appreciated.
