Star Wars Droid: RA-7 Service Droid 

       
 
RA-7

Since the original chrome RA droid I had was repainted to be a specific Death Star Droid, it seems only fitting that I get the newer Death Star Droid and redo it into a generic chrome RA series service droid.

I used nail polish remover to strip the droid back to it's chrome base, leaving the occasional rough spot to indicate wear/grease buildup. Once stripped, I tightened up the joints a bit (I couldn't believe how loose it was right out of the package) and used a new permanent marker to redo the eyes. Using a marker over the chrome plating has a really interesting effect: the eyes now change color when viewed from different angles!
