    Wow! That is a serious tutorial you put out there. For me though, I just like to aquire them, put them on my 360 and feel the ego trip that comes from being pretty high on the "Nerd Food Chain"

    Aw, you're not a nerd. A nerd is that guy who's always just one notch stranger than you are.

    For instance, my example I use all the time. One Halloween while running a game store, I dressed up at Princess Leia in slave gear. See, that's just funny. It's the cosplayers who do it all the time who are nerds.

    I have a Millennium Falcon and an Xbox, but it's the guy with the Xbox IN his Millennium Falcon who's the nerd.

    Get it?

    I have stickers that you can put over the clear parts before you spray. I put some up on eBay for $1.99 for customizers.

    Um, did you READ the thread? The whole thread is about that. Go look at my post on the first page. There's pics of all the primers and paints I use and all kinds of prep work hints, etc.

    Some WalMarts are getting rid of their metallic paints for a buck a can. Worth a look.

    By hand painted you mean not spray can or airbrush, but with like an actual brush? I use acrylics once in a while. You might track down pavel at his website paveldolgov.com and ask what he uses for brush painting. I don't think it showed in the video but I can't remember for sure.

    Just make sure you primer it with a plastic friendly primer, OR use plastic friendly paints, or you'll end up with paint the never dries and mushy plastic.

    That's not true. Lisa Gleave wants to have my baby.

    I'll try for something from Bungie but I don't have an appointment with them.
