Painting the legs

A project log for Star Wars: BT-1 the Blastomech

BT-1 was introduced in the Star Wars Darth Vader comic books as a twisted mirror version of R2-D2. BT-1 is the first and only Blastomech.

I painted one of BT's legs before the temperature dropped suddenly and it was no longer possible.

The shoulder detail and the ankle cylinders need to be painted. I am still trying to figure out what color I want to make them. I also have to cut out a set of ankle brackets out of aluminum.

I'm to the fun part of the painting. I enjoy adding little touches like the gold paint in the indentions.
