Nice build thread!
I've got a 23rd century pistol kit and a JLong P1 kit waiting in the wings. Debating if I'll build the 23rd century with stock chrome parts or pick up metal replacement parts. Already nabbed a vintage crispy from TAS to use on it and another for the JLong P1 kit too.
Picked up a can of zynolyte z8070 dark gray primer for the P1's and rustoleum 7713 dark bronze metallic for the P2 handle. Haven't picked up paint for the P2 body as yet.
Thinking of brush painting a base coat on the P1's and P2 then spray over the brushed paint to replicate the look of the originals. For the P2 handle I'm considering first spraying it with a copper model paint for a base coat then topping that with the 7713 dark bronze.
Haven't picked up a paint for the P2 body yet. Looking at a couple of Krylon "shadow gray" spray cans but haven't found them locally yet and online shipping for them is like $10 so I'd rather find this locally if I can.
Will be following this thread, please share your paint colors and techniques.
