Painted Holoprojectors and Ankle Details

Today has been productive on the painting scene. After plenty of masking, the Holoprojectors could be painted and the Ankle Details repainted.
The ankle details needed to be redone because I painted them with the old style of Red. After switching to the new "Krider Red" color, this is one of the few parts that needed to be redone.
The holoprojectors were also masked according to Keith Henry's instructions on resinparts.com
To create the aluminum finish, I used the Rustoleum "Metallic Finish" that comes in the plain white can. It took quite a few layers to get the optimal effect, but they will do. I would have liked to get on the latest HP run, but will focus the funds elsewhere (probably sound).
