    The small tubing lord have mercy the small tubing. 2 broke, thank you Bob Smith Industries glue. :) 

    I did the whole grey body parts with starship filth oil paint "gunk" style, I find it a bit too gunky.. If I could do it again I would dilute it and do a simple wash. Q-tips had a hell of a hard time getting in the small nooks and cranies.

    Other fun bit is for the chipping effect bits, I added a super faint rust wash around the chips.

    I think it turned out aight.

    Exceptional work, man! That paint job is gorgeous and the weathering is some of the best I've ever seen. Love how sharp all the details are, like the astromech's head.
