Heres Something Different So Far. Part 2
Here are a few updated pictures of my robot ROAMIN since I have painted him.
The bottom piece I am still working on, so it's still in primer, but it will be painted gun metal gray soon. He is coming around slowly, I think he is looking good.
Sorry about the bad lighting, its early in the morning, at least you can see him.

are you gunna paint black on the arms blue or are you gunna keep them black and grey?
The painting and pin striping come naturally to me, because of my experience painting and detailing real cars and trucks.
The back of my robot I have the doors where the batteries go done also in blue, I am going to put the EZ V4 inside of the upper door on the back and the lower door is where the big battery will go.
I am also working on designing some shoulder shields which also will be painted blue, still go plenty of time, since I am waiting for my preorder kit and things :-}
I can tell you're experienced that's a killer paint job!
Your robot is developing into an awesome build.
I sure like the quality paint job. It looks very professional.
I am the type of person that would rather take something old and restore it, than to buy new, seems like anymore if you can make the old things work, they are far better than the new. I guess I am just old school, with a touch of modern day, but the old school comes through so much more.
I really cannot wait to bring this robot to life, oh well I can only dream about it for now, hopefully by June or July my V4 kit and other things on preorder will be here.
So all together he is a combination of a Omnibot 2000, Robie Sr. robot and a Robosapien V2 robot, connecting the 2 bodies was a slight challenge, almost no room for error when cutting and grinding, that sort of made me nervous when I was doing it.
At this time I am sort of just admiring the project, I get ideas popping into my head, but then I don't want to screw things up making a stupid move.
When all done he will be a indoor home robotic companion, hopefully good company to talk to and be able to do somethings as well as be able to inform about the news and weather and music.
I also want to come up with a way so that when his battery power gets low, he will be able to recharge himself when needed, that will be another idea to work on.
