    Doing a couple of Repaints(ROTF Ravage & Sideways) and im not really sure what type of silver paints to use, Testors or w.e if someone could point me in the right direction:) 
    also for Sideways im looking more into like a white silver sort of color, hopefully you all understand what im talking about:lol  more toward this color:[​IMG]


    Also planning on doing a more screen accurate ROTF Wheelie,
    want to give him hands and added decals and all that: Reference Pic Here:[​IMG]
    thinking about using alternators hands but not sure it will fit, i dont own any alternators so if someone out there could do a size comparison to see if it will work that be awsome:thumb

    For the silver, i think Games Workshop Mithril Silver should work. Just don't brush it on, as it tends to leave streaks.

    Tamiya's TS-30 silver leaf spray paint. It is the best silver paint, period. Very smooth, not "flakey/glittery". Plus, it's very "forgiving" in application. Buy a can and spray away. Here's a pic I took recently of it on my MP TC repaint: [​IMG]
    It's about as "white" as silver gets.

    Just make sure you don't get their 'chrome silver' by mistake, that stuff is really crap.

    Also, i should probably mention Mithril Silver needs to be painted on it light, light coats to gt a nice 'white' silver colouring.
