Picture 1. The back half of R2’s leg is next to get the weathering treatment, the same as the front area. Here I have primed the part and left it for 24 hours to dry.

Pictures 2 & 3. Next, I took the silver detail pieces that fit into the back half of the leg, and applied some starship filth oil paint and rubbed it into the grooves to give it a more worn metallic look. I also gave the silver plate to the front of the leg the same treatment. These will now be left to dry for several days.

Pictures 4 & 5. The primer paint has now had time to completely dry, and the silver layer is now applied. This will be left to dry before attaching to the other half of the leg so I can match the chipped areas I placed on the front part.

More to come shortly.

Picture 1. Now the silver paint had dried, I have attached it to the other half of the leg. I then lightly brush some Maskol on the areas to match the already weathered piece. I have also masked the small silver strip.

Picture 2. I then painted the piece with white paint.

Pictures 3,4 & 5. I then rub off the Maskol once the paint has dried and peeled off the masked area.

Pictures 6,7,8 & 9. Here are some pictures of the two halves put together.

I have made up the two projector housings. I put some pewter wax on the black end of one of the caps, I then used my trusted starship filth oil paint to give the silver a worn metallic look.
The final picture is the dome frame with the main eye in place.


Next, I will finish the weathering of the leg I've just painted.

Just a small update. I have finished the dome frame and added some of the parts to show how it will look, minus the aluminium dome. The second picture shows the matrix LED working.


More of the leg parts to come shortly and some more weathering of the leg shown.

Pictures 1 & 2. A little more weathering on the leg in this update. First, I primed the rear bottom leg piece, after I had brushed some Maskol into the blue recessed part on this section. I allowed to dry and painted it with satin white.

Pictures 3 & 4. Once this had dried, I took out the Maskol, to exposed the blue recessed area of the part.

Pictures 5 & 6. I weathered the rear back leg part the same as the front piece to match. I used starship filth and a sand oil paint to give the yellow sandy colour. I allowed this to dry for over 24 hours, before spraying the pieces with a semi-gloss varnish. I decided the semi-gloss looked better than the matt varnish and gave it a nice sheen.

Pictures 7,8,9 & 10. I then screwed the inner metal frame piece and attached both halves together. I also attached the bottom wheel frame. In these pictures, I tried to show how the varnish looks with a slight sheen.


Next, I will be weathering the bottom leg piece I’ve just painted and assembling the wheel part.

Pictures 1 & 2. I have started painted the bottom, underside of the leg piece, using the starship filth and sand oils to match the rest of the weathered leg part. Once finished I will allow this to dry for several days before applying the varnish.

Picture 3. I have also painted the silver side pieces and applied some weathering to give it that metallic weathered look. The small blue part that attaches the silver piece will be painted in the next update.

Pictures 4 & 5. Next, I attached the metal wheel frame and screwed the wheel parts together.

Pictures 1,2,3 & 4. I have painted the blue parts of the Ankle pieces. First, I primed each piece, then painted silver and finally with the translucent purple and blue.

Picture 5. The final picture is the blue piece, having been sprayed with gloss varnish. This will be allowed to dry fully for several days before weathering and sanded down with wet and dry.
The other parts shown in my last post were also varnished, now the oils have dried.
