Didn't quite get these finished the weekend and also I was not happy with the chest computer reel to reel detail so I had an 11th hour change but things are looking good now.

Spraying Robots and bits and bobs

The spraying of the Robots has commenced and they're nearly finished! For my twin Robots, I must have used 10 or more spray cans! but the finish is starting to looking good now.
The spraying has taken me longer than I had hoped due to bad weather and a nasty lingering cold and my out side air - conditioned spray booth (not weather proof)
The next step in the paint work is to grung it up a bit with some dark acrylic paints to give the Robots some extra looking depth around all the rivets etc before treating them to the final coat of clear spray paint.....looking forward to it.
