Whilst I wait for my 2 Stapleton Production Tricorders, I decided to go ahead and order a Small Voyager PADD Kit from Etsy. I went for it because I needed some practice with priming/painting/clear coating, but mostly because I love the look of PADDs. And it’s a relatively affordable project to screw up.
As an inexperienced Kit builder, I just wanted to ask some initial questions:
- This post suggests that Duplicolor BGM0478 is a great colour match. I’ve got one being shipping in from US, but is there a readily available UK equivalent?
- I’m going to need to round off the corners of the perspex. Does anyone have a good method for this? Right now I guess I’m just going to have to sand it down by hand. I just worry I might end up with uneven edges.
- Does anyone know of a good source where I can find printed graphics for the main screen?
