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 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.
