Painted Under Shoulder Details, Ankle Details, Worked on Dome Bumps

Today I painted the resin under shoulder details and the rest of the ankle details silver/chrome. Unfortunately, even though I masked the already-painted blue area of the ankle details, somehow a bit of silver paint leaked onto the blue. I may try rubbing compound to see if I can get the silver out, before I resort to repainting (again).

I also purchased a pair of rocker switches from Radio Shack, that will double as dome bumps and on/off switches for the dome electronics. These switches have a square bezel, so I spent time filing them into a circle. I may paint them blue, I haven't decided yet.
