More Pick Painting!

 

I ended up using a Toothpick for the Vents and the engraved designs on the Arm Sections. As long as there is a ridge or line to follow the toothpicks work very well. You can also use a toothpick to rub off semi-dry acrylic paint.

Arm Details...

 

I cut some Brass Screen to fit the Slots I cut out earlier. Then I pushed the Screen against the inside of the Slot until it formed to the shape of the Slot. Next I glued it inside the Slot.

Inner Arm Detail...
I sprayed the Inner Arm Part with Flat Black and the Cylinders with Vallejo's Red and Yellow. I also added a strip of Metal Studs from Auto Graphics RC Stickers.

I painted some Steel and Flat Black details. Then I added 3 strips of Metal Studs from the RC Stickers.

RRRobot is coming along great. You must have one crazy parts bin with all the different pieces and parts you come up with.

BiG Arms!

 

I did some more painting on the Arm Parts. Then I applied a black wash and a spray of Testors Glosscote.

Here is a Mock-Up of the Arms.

RRRobot Pilot!

 

Dolores painted this Tamiya Driver for me about 15 years ago. Looks like a perfect candidate to control RRRobot!

Had to give him a trim to fit inside RRRobot.

Cookies!

 

I'm starting on the Cockpit for RRRobot. I found a tray from a package of Cookies that should work just fine...

I cut the end off of the Cookie Tray and sprayed it with DupliColor Filler/Primer. I am also going to use part of this Seat that I found in a 12th Scale 57 Chevy Box.

I agree with Rich. I bet for everything you see you are trying to figure out how to use it on a model. Keep it up. We love it.
