Remainder of Color Scheme

  1. 1. Leave the side panels black or paint them white?

    • Leave it as it is
    • Paint the side panels white

I considered taping off around the outline of the side panel window and painting the remainder of the panel white and leaving a black border around the actual window (like a black boarder underneath the side panel window in that area where the window screws are located) if that makes sense?

Definitly the way to go. Stormtroopers are white with a hint of black except for the Stormtrooper Commander. I would paint a stencil of the Stormtrooper emblem on the right of the side panel fan. Great work.

Well, you guys made it awful hard to make a decision with an almost even split between my options (leave it as is won by one vote). However, I just had to see what it would look like if I did the side panels, so I agreed with 6 of you to go ahead and paint the panels.

 

Without further delay here is the finished product (I still have to finish sand and clearcoat the side panels - but you'll get the idea).

 

Let me know what you think. Thanks.

Not to brag............... but note the reflections from the wallpaper on my wall on the top bezel :)

Yay! It does look a LOT better, imo. I was right, the majority was wrong. :bow:

Yep, I think it turned out pretty tight. I appreciate your input.

Hey guys - here is the last update on this project. Thanks for all the kind words, encouragement, kudos and opinions. I've finished wet sanding, final buff and polish and I wanted to show ya'll what it looks like now. Hope you enjoy! I hope the reflections help show the mirror finish.............. I've taken two sets of pics using different lighting and aperture settings.

Now to see if it can take a shot from a blaster and see if it can survive! If it's a REAL Storm Trooper, it won't be able to handle a stone from a sling thrown from an Ewok. :P

Nice :)

 

I'm assuming that everything is swell with the stuff you got from me?

Yup! The Radbox had missing screws and stuff, but Swiftech sent me them for free. Those Yate-Loon fans push a lot of air, but are a little loud for my taste, so will be replacing them with Noctua fans. I'll probably use the Yate-Loon fans for another build I'll be doing for my gf's parents... which reminds me, check your FS thread. :P
