My Custom Astromechs
« on: April 3, 2003, 09:57 PM »
I made these two back when I thought I might be good at customizing... As you can see, I'm not too good. Simple re-paints of the Rocket-Booster R2 from TPM's $2 clearance days.

First is a blue droid, which I'd want if I was a charactor in Star Wars, and the second is a red droid similar to that on-board Padme's ship...

The blue one is.... OK.  The red one looks very good though.  I have yet to do a custom figure, but you're way ahead of me.  I plan on trying the customizing one of these days.

They look nice Brad.  I have a ton of Astromech customs that I should take some shots of.  Getting thos details though can be a bugger.  I find if I paint the arms and crevices first and then do a paint over of the body it works the best.

Those look cool Brad. Like I have mentioned, I don't do customs myself but I enjoy when others make them.  :)
Very nice.

Customizing astromechs has always been a problem with me.  I never like the end product but someday I will persist & try again.  Looks like a great effort, they can be tough to do.
