New TOS Phaser Handle Colour Suggestion:


Sr Member
I *believe* I've found an excellent handle colour!
A solid coat of Rustoleum dark bronze metallic, then a very light coat of Rustoleum metallic charcoal, finished with a very fine misting of dark bronze again.
Looks dark grey in shadow, but a bronzey aluminum in bright light.

What do you think? Does it look right? :confused

Looks great in the photos. Metallic is always hard to pin down but it looks like you nailed it.

Looks good!

I've always liked the Testors Model Master Gunmetal or Titanium paints. Metallic without having visible metal flakes and go on like a dream straight from a spraycan.

This is Gunmetal, Titanium is slightly lighter...

I would say that it's a pretty good color match. Something that I will have to keep in mind when I start to rework my phasers.
