    Love the metallic bits, the gunmetal highlights few and far between break it up nicely. The answer is you probably mixing, but what paint did you use to match the yellow? I've been only been adding a bit of paint to my studio figures, generally whatever paint I already owned from an R2 model kit, but those missing yellow details on the arms are bits I'd be interested doing.

    Anyway if not, this is the paint I used. No mixing. Although in person it’s a tiny bit off (not as bad as the doors vs the rest of the figure)

    Can't say I've seen them here but thanks, sounds like the bit of difference is fine.

    I like all the metallic bits. The arms look especially nice with the yellow bits mixed in.
