Hi Guys,
New here.
I have been making (printing mainly) Star Wars replica props for years. Yesterday I started out on the lovely Project842 Battle Droid.

Thinking ahead to painting (Head will be ready for paint tomorrow) does anyone know of a consensus for the base colour on B1 battle droids (Episode 1)

A list of the colours will really save me on matching!

We would need to know the tan colour (the muddy red colour for episode 2)

And colour matches for the Red on the security droid and the yellow on the commander droid

I will be setting out on this adventure regardless, but if anyone has put the effort in I would be very greatful for some pointers!!!

So here is the progress since my last message.
Paint is just a base coat for now

as you can see the colour is a problem

the head is Ford Ivory and the body is straight ivory from a no name.

UK Ford ivory

now Ford Ivory is too light but other than that quite close

Straight Ivory is too yellow.
Suggestions for paint colours please!!

This is great. Nothing like a full sized robot in the house. :)

mid you don’t mind me asking, what printer did you print this on and is it ABS? PLA? Something else?

Again, fantastic work!

It wasnt too bad, I tried to orientate on the printer to minimise, and i used body filler/orbital sander as each part came off the printer. So the sanding kind of disapeared into the print phase of the 30 days :)
