I am extremely happy with how the texture application has turned out. After primer, I was able to see a few more areas to clean up or add more texture. I'm going to address those areas. Hit with primer 1 more time and head onto painting the boarder frame first.

That looks great, genius idea of hanging on a door. Is it going to be on the part of the door that faces inside the room?

Now that the primer had dried. It was time to add the first layer of paint. Someone had mentioned on build thread they used Rustoleum Metallic Dark Steel. Well I just happened to have that particular can of paint in my collection and decided to give it a shot.

I can say I am happy with the color tone. But personally, I am not thrilled about metallic glimmer it gives off. It was a nice start. But once this dries, I am going to give Tamiya Gun Metal a try.

Looking at the screen reference of the HIC boarders or side panels, it appears to be black at first glance, but is actually a shinny dark grey or gunmetal.

To achieve this look, I opted to use Tamiya TS-38 Gunmetal.

I am extremely happy with the look of this paint. Unfortunately, I only bought 2-100ml cans. So I have to order 2 more to get 1 more even coat and hit the sides of the door and have a extra for any touch ups down the road.

Thanks! I don't want to derail your awesome build thread, but I wanted to confirm what you were showing with the color scheme for ESB. I obviously had room to play since it's a custom one, but your paint is looking spot on.

Sometimes real life gets in the way of my Star Wars life. How dare it! After I finally got around to finishing up the edges and hitting it with gloss clear coat. I went ahead and masked the sides.

I used Tamiya Gunmetal TS-42 paint for the HIC panel (Used 5 cans)

After, the HIC dried, I misted it with a can of clear gloss.

I started my weathering with a wash mix of water, dish soap, black & grey acrylic paint. I had 2 towels on standby. 1 for wiping up the wash and the other it dip in water and clean up and overspill.

I then brushed on the wash and let it sit for a few minutes. Do not let it sit too long.

Once you wipe up the excess with a dry towel, you will have the black set in the creases and darken other areas. If it is too dark after you wipe it up, use more water to wipe it off or you can lightly wet sand with fine sanding block.

To add some finishing highlight touches. I used some metallic aluminum paint and placed small drops on my finger to run across Han's shirt and pants seams to make them pop a bit more.
