I'm not big into customizing, beyond swapping cloaks around on figures, but with the cheap availability of the Sneak Preview R3-T7 figure, I can't help but think it would be fun to buy up a few and paint 'em -- an easy way to get the numerous astromech droids I want, but that Hasbro is either not making or are including with figure multipacks (i.e., the Hoth set). I not only want to make some of the astromechs from the movies, but droids with my own color schemes, like [color=hot pink]hot pink[/color] (j/k).
Any advice, primarily on what kind of paint to use, would be most appreciated! I am particularly curious about how to paint R3's clear dome the silvery-white color seen on R2-B1. Thanks in advance!
