I love E-bay !!! It's the essence of free enterprize !! The Wild, Wild West of Cyberspace, but you need to do your homework and know what your doing or you can get ripped off "Buyer Beware" you know !!! ;)

The only custom I've bought was a Motti painted Black !! I looked real cool and w/shipping cost me $5 !!!

Everyone complains about Scalpers, but you only get scalped if you allow your self to !! So people want to complain they can't get the figures they want cuz the "Scalpers" are cleaning the pegs !! I think it's more a distribution problem than Scalpers !!

I look for older loose Items that would be harder to find if it weren't for E-bay !!!

Good deals are out there, but you got to have Patience !!!!
;D

Am Much Impressed !! Very Original !!!

Thanks Chris for the Complement !!  :)

I've not used that new "for Plastic" Paint, but from what i've seen it only comes in basic colors !! Just pic the colors you want since it's hard plastic It'll work !!!You might want to paint the backside of the side door though, to see if it'll take bending to some degree !!

As far as the Tattoine AT-AT goes IHO That would be a really Cool Original Idea !!!! You could even repaint a driver and Officer in Desert Mode !!! ;D

Just don't forget to send me some pics and LMK how it's going !!!! ;)

Ya' Chris since you paid only $6 ya ain't got much to lose so have fun experimenting !!

I haven't to this point had any problems painting plastic !!

What I would do is to go to where ever they sell Can paint and just pic out the colors that look good to you !!

Krylon is what I prefer but Rust-oleum American Accents is good too !!

Krylon has a line of camy paint(ultra-flat) tho I've never tried it

Here's What I have done in Camy !! It Isn't like your pic but to get it like that on a small scale, I think you would have to do it by hand with a brush, unless your good with a Airbrush !!





As JJ Said Wash it , tape it (I'd do only the areas you don't want Camy), and I'd use Krylon Gray primer !!

Basecoat light (I used Tan) and just spray a little of one color here another there(light coats), and if it gets to look'n wet. Wait a few till it dries and do some more !!

Krylon Dries fast that why I use it the most!! But "beware" you get what you pay for and cheap paint can take a week to dry .Even if it says Fast Drying !!! ::)

I like this site, but my knowledge of SW is limited and it's hard to post when you have nothing to add. Or your totally clueless on a particular subject !!!!
