    Here are a few options for pin striping. Micheal's usually has a 40% coupon so you can really get a great deal.

    1/32" 3/64" 1/16" 3/32" 1/8" 3/16" 1/4" and 3/8"

    The way I do it is cut to size. The thinner it is, the more it will conform to a curved surface like R2's dome. Just be aware that the Testors tape is much stickier than Tamiya tape so there is a chance you will peel off any underlying paint you may have applied. This is where the frustration begins.

    Caution: extreme patience is required

    Good luck!

    Awesome! Thanks bud.

    Very nice work on the tone of N3's green. The Naboo droids were all supposed to match the same tone as R2-D2's blue.

    Hi pod,

    Thanks for checking out my customization thread. You're like Astromech royalty IMO. Your site is a fantastic resource and so informative. So glad you are keeping it up.

    Regarding the grey panels on those two droids, I have the grey panel on the Black and Blue Droid but not on R3-T2 because I did not see any picture showing this. Do you have a pic or any info that you can share?

    Here are more pics of the Black and Blue droid

    Love it!

    Can't give you a direct pic, but I think it's pretty obvious that R3-T2 is just a dome swap with R2-D2, and there are plenty of pics showing R2 having the grey square on location. It's an important tracer in telling which motorized body was being used in which scenes.
