Next steps:

I continued to add vallejo white primer on vallejo black primer to make contrast:

I still need to do the missiles racks.

Then I decided to do the main body using Lifecolor UA 224 paint. I made a first layer straight from the can via the airbrush, then add some drops of Vallejo white primer and made some highlights via the airbrush, then add more highligts using the same paint adding more white and this time usiung a brush.
I also started to make weathering using the sponge technic:

Nice color scheme
If you have a tool and aren't aware of what it can do, its dangerous. A jedi can do amazing things with a lightsaber. A roomful of chimps with lightsabers... would get messy.

The other color will be nato brown from Tamiya!

Here are the sides of the droid:
Base color: Tamiya nato brown
Salt technic
Then Lifecolor UA 224

And the wheels:

Damn, it has been a long time since I posted here, sorry guys! :(

Here are the next steps:

Assembly of the wheels holders:

Image

Image

Weathering of the central parts:

Image

Weathering in progress using tamiya product:
Technic used: Juice, sponge, rust leak with enamel paint

Image
(We can see white areas on that image. this was not planed. This is a bad reaction between salt technic and futur dullcoat. Not planed, but really good looking I think :D )

Image

Image

Image

Image

Testing the missiles racks:

Image

Wheels test on the base

Image

Image

Image

Gluing the wheels parts:

Image

I then add some metal effect using an HB pencil. After that, a coat of futur with tamyia matt effect sealed everything together.

That is some DAMN fine paintwork!
Too bad we only saw this droid for a few seconds- it's a fan favorite because it's so weird!
Those giant wheels!

I love the color scheme for it.

Coming along nicely. Almost there!

Pretty much ditto what everyone else is saying, and I love the weathering you've done. I really need to take the plunge and try my hand at it, because it adds so much realism.
