tos communicator toy upgrade
 
I order one of those diamond select communicators and was disappointed to find it was riddled with flash and had a sloppy paintjob. I decided to repaint and rebuild it to be more screen accurate to the hero props.

It turned out pretty good. I used bare metal foil for some parts and metal paint for some of the others. I also repainted the antenna with real brass paint to give it the shine real brass has. I have, however, decided to buy the roddenbury kit since it has real metal parts and is very accurate to what was used on the show. So I'm selling this one to raise funds for the rod kit. Click here to for the auction.




What do you guys think?
