So.... going to start my build for R3PO. Is there a C3PO CRL, I should base it off of, and add the Left hip tattoo? Smile Any guidance appreciated in advice and getting approved. Smile

And of course, which color do you think is the closest?

I'm kind of leaning towards the Ketchup or Brick, with additional weathering.

That was ironic of course !
No sorry there is nothing details apparently :s

Regarding the closest color :
Black and purple red are clearly too dark.
Raspberry seems too pinky to me.
After it's more difficult to choose one ! Honestly I would say Brick or Royal Red. But as the droid seems to be heavily weathered with a dark greasy layer, you might want to start with a brighter base layer (ketchup) as it could get darkened at least a little bit by the weathering (depending how you do it Wink )
I think I would personally cut it in half and choose the brick. Very Happy
But I would say before to buy all the paint a test including the weathering should be necessary Wink


Could luck with your making ! Please post some updates Wink

Looks Great so far.
Use a little Blue and Purple mixed with black to do your weathering.
Test it first, to see if you like the color mix.
