Hi Guys. I tried doing a search but haven't been successful at finding anything related. I got a bug up my butt and just decided to try painting my gear box. I JUST started about an hour ago, so I still have a long ways to go... but I've tried looking on google and in the forums for any pics of how other guys have painted boba fett-ish style paint schemed gear boxes, with absolutely no luck. I was wondering if any of you guys in here have tried painting your gear boxes? If so would you mind posting a picture? I have no idea wtf I'm doing... I am not a painter in the least, so was hoping to find some inspiration, but with absolutely no luck.
I ordered an enlarged ROTJ colored chest decal 5"x5" off of ebay that I'm thinking to slap right in the middle there. And on the left side (in the picture, actually the "rear" of the box when it's rolling) I kinda wanted to make it look like one of the shoulder plates, by adding an enlarged maroon decal (5"x6") skull in the middle. I know I still need to do another few coats of the yellow, then put some of the silver in it, but other than that I'm kinda just shrugging my shoulders and hoping it'll turn out ok.
I leave for my troop up north next wed., so if anyone has any pics of their gear boxes that they wouldn't mind posting, I'd be greatly appreciative. I thought that rather than just the flat black box, that it'd be kinda fun if while I roll by, people just knoooooow that bobo fett's in that box. lol
PS: MAN... painting with brushes SUCKS!!!!
I thought that everything would just paint on nice, even, and smooth. boy was I wrong!
