I painted mine, it gives it a certain "look" but I had to touch it up 2-3 times to get it to look right, but to save time, you could always get a decal, apply it, then paint over it to give it that hand made look.
I painted my own emblems. I made a template from a pic posted here, cut it out and traced on painters tape that was on a transparency sheet. I cut it out with an exacto and peeled it off. I used a rust primer for the color.
Yep....I painted my on my Boba 1.0 version.....the bantha skull turned out perfect....the chest one I was never really happy with. Boba 2.0 is pretty much done now.....but no chest emblem yet. I'm gunshy after the first one. I'll have to practice a bit and take my time.
hey, i paint my own too....well, maybe i got a little chepo, and printed off a pic of the emblem, cut it out, and just spray painted it on...but, i DID do the pinstriping with a very fine brush tip, and some paint.
