The GP-23 fuel droid is designed to pump fuel from reservoir bladders into waiting starfighters.
Parts: Fuel Droid (from the Episode I Tatooine Accessory pack).
Supplies: Brushes, Testors paints and Testors Dull-Cote.
Step One: One of the two droids was given a new paint-job. The other was left alone.
Step Two: After the paint dried, I cut off some of the antenna and other projections and glued them on in new places.
Step Three: Next, I applied a light coat of Testors Dull-Cote to each droid to protect the paint and remove the shiny appearance.
Step Three: Finally, to show the wear and tear common to fuel droids, I added a lot of weathering and dirt.
Wish I was there!
