Bandai TIE ship solar panels
Posted by skrooby on Saturday, May 06, 2017 2:11 PM

Hi everyone,

I'm putting together a TIE fighter and interceptor. While I'm tempted to just leave the solar panels black (or paint with flat black), I want them to look a little more interesting and maybe give them a bit of a sheen (like how solar panels look in real life)

What would everyone suggest? If I thin down Alclad greatly, would it give me a semiopaque sheen over the black base? Is there another line of paint I can use?

Thanks,

Jeff

Earth folk solar panels have a somewhat puple hue over black look, but that is just in our galaxy. 

Folks in another galaxy may use completely different materials, so you can't be proven wrong however you paint them.  Do a google image search for that bird and you can paint it according to how the movie showed it.
