I am inquiring if anything is known about how the pyro x-wings were painted.
By pyro, I mean pyro pyro's. Not the pyro's as heroes (red 6, 12, etc).
Were they painted in the same method as heroes (black primer..white...rubbed down, etc).
Or perhaps they were just done quicker with some form of appropriate off the shelf paint off-white....red stripes..minimal weathering.
Close-up shots of pieces I have seen seem to suggest a quick splattering of black overall. Basically paint-on vs layerings, chipping, etc.
Possibly differences as well for pyros rushed into production during the last days of shooting, vs earlier when the pyros certainly seemed to get much more care.
My apologies for re-usings anyones pics..most obtained here on RPF, and I didn't track the original thread's I got them from.
Let me know if I need to take any down.
