HELP! Need to paint an M.R. Enterprise.

Need some professional advice gentlemen.


I have a Master Replicas Enterprise that hit an ion storm (fell off the table and broke the saucer off)
It was repaired in dry dock (re-glued, re-enforced and sanded while sobbing quietly)


Now it needs to be repainted. I tried to color match it by eye but I am not sure.
Any suggestions?



Appreciate any advice.
Thanks guys.

Spockboy

Re: HELP! Need to paint an M.R. Enterprise.

You might want to start a thread over in Fan Art, that's where most of the practical model builders hand out and could provide guidance.

As for me, there's a thread over at CultTVMan on the color of the Enterprise and gives recommendations.

There is a Tamiya Grey acrylic paint that is said to be pretty darn close right out of the jar. The actual paint # is: Tamiya J.N. Grey 81312 XF-12.

It's all going to come down to what color M.R. selected initially.

Thanks I will try that.

Does anyone know what actual color they used?
Surely someone out there knows.

If I find out I will tell all of you guys!


Thanks again,
