Finish skins, Test paint,

Have all of R2's skins cut out. Still need to finish the panels on both outer skins.

The small marks on the sides of the cut-outs are numbers, I still have the template on. Will draw a picture and number them the same, which will match the cut-outs' numbers. That way I'll know which pieces goes back where.

Sanded the primer off the coin slots. It would almost rub off!!!. Also sanded the utility arms. Then a good coat of primer. Will get some 200-400 grit sand paper tomarrow and lightly sand them with it. Then another light primer coat.

I pulled out a big piece of scrap styrene to do a paint test. I lightly sanded it, to rough up the surface a bit. Then a coat of primer. After it dried, a coat of Rust-Oleum Metallic Cobalt blue. Let dry about 15-20 min. Then a coat of Dupli-Colour anodized blue, then let it dry. Didn't have any clear coat yet.
I couldn't find any deep purple so went w/ cobalt blue. I really like the way it turned out.

First is w/o the flash. Second w/ flash. Both indoors at night. Will post pics off daylight outside tomarrow.

Oooppps second one blurry. sorry.

Hopfully more tomarrow!!!
