Tried Painting Right Leg, Received Front Logics, Painted Middle Ankle Cylinders

More misadventures in painting.

It would seem simple enough, just point spray can at leg and spray, right?

So, how did I manage to do this?

I seem to be self-cursed when it comes to painting. I may or may not try painting the left leg tomorrow. What's the point if it's just going to end up like the right one? In the meantime, I guess I'm going to have to sand that mess down. Maybe I should go into the texture coating business.

On the good side, my pre-assembled front logic displays from Ben and Jason arrived today, and they work great.

I also painted in the middle leg's ankle cylinders silver today.

Any ideas on how to mount these?
I know about the 4 holes to use,
But someone showed a pic of them hitting each other and I never seen a solution to this problem.
I have'nt tried mine yet.

Hi Calvin,

Once again, you're way ahead of me.

I suppose I may do something like what I saw in Mike Senna's droid tear-down on the R2LA1 DVD; namely, build a little stand that frames the logics, and then secure the stand to the dome ring. In that case, I may not end up using the holes at all. But right now I'm really not sure what I'm going to do yet.

I'd be interested in hearing what you come up with too.
