    Wait, if you didn't remove the pins, how did you paint the hip hinges? Those and the shoulder joints are what I'm most curious about in doing my own ER paint job on mine

    I paint in layers, so I just rotate and move the joint slightly between passes after it has dried. Parts with heavy contact I like to go as light as possible. Also since the shoulders are white I just sprayed as much as I could with multiple applications in different positions. You’d have to be really close and looking for it to see that he coverage is not 100% in the shoulders.

    Cool, though I imagine that's done with an airbrush, which I don't have, so that means I'm gonna have to do some extra masking while they're still attached to the piece that shouldn't be painted.
