We had a costuming party today......helped a recruit fix up his Episode III 501st Clone, a Merc work on his new helmet and back piece, add a mouth piece to my Kit Fisto, test fit some horns on a Dathomirian youth, a shadow trooper finished up her helmet, test fitted feet for an ewok, and got some CUSTOM Gonk droids almost finished. Here are some pics.... make sure to check out the video and try to locate the flashing power source lights. Smile

Awesome! I'm most interested in the weathering, specifically the "oil drip" type of gray paint on it...how was that done?

P.S.: Gonk. Gonk-gonk. Gonk, gonk; gonk.

Just mixed latex craft paint with a little rubbing alcohol, and put it on with an air brush....since these pictures were taken, we have made the lighter gonk a static droid that actually has a cooler, spot to put handouts, and the top is hinged now, as well as a portable dvd player that opens up from a vent on the back side.
