Hi i made a nice cardassian phaser, which must be paint now!
but which colors are correct?
it this mainly gold or brass?And then the other body color is this the same as at the handle?At the handle i would say gun metal?The rest is a red brown
hope to get help
I have the paint scheme for these but I'll need to get home from work to get it. Unfortunately, the main body's dark brown metallic is one of those PlastiKote car colors that is no longer available and a really good substitute is elusive. The purple emitter is a Tamiya spray and nothing else looks right.
The paint scheme is right there too.
The Plasti-Kote code number is CC 9084. It is Mink Brown Pearl Metallic. And as Scott said, it has been out of production for many, many years.

These guys are the best.
OK, it's Tamiya TS-24 Purple for the emitter.
The handle is different from the body. Handle color was Plasti-kote 7179 which is a dark pewter metallic and used on a ton of props (usually the darker pewter on Starfleet items was 7179).
I have had the paint diagram below in my files for a while... no idea where it came from:
thanks for the feedback but PlastiKote i cant get here! I know this Company in UK, but not here,actually i will use Vallejo and the Airbrush technique.
So dark brown, no gun metal ok! dupli color i know
and which color it the main body? Gold?
Hi thank you for this!Do you have the scan a little bit bigger ?
i mixt now this color out of vallejo colors
I may be a little late with this, as you guys seem to have the codes etc all figured out, but I have a screen used Cardassian Phaser if pictures would be of any use?
Pics of screen-used items are always welcome! Thank you for offering.
No worries, I won't be home for a few days but will put some up as soon as I am.
Managed to find a few pictures I took shortly after recieving this, not the best but they are taken under natural light, will still get some better ones when I get home. Any requests for shot angles????
