In a few weeks many Mars Attacks backers will get the crashed Saucer. Big problem! The dome is not not clear plastic, so the inside is not visible. I'm and many others are not really good at painting freehand. So how to paint it? I do not want to paint it in any color, it should be clear. Interesting ideas from the Kickstarter comments: 1. Wulf: "Do the crashed saucer dome in white with crackle glaze, it'll look like shattered perspex." 2. Undave: "You could always paint the crashed saucer dome to look like exploded Martian and then give it a heavy gloss varnish." 3. Another idea would be to combine method one and two. 4. My first idea was to get somehow Mantic to sell only a clear saucer dome, remove the unclear dome from the crashed saucer, put a black cotton wool in the clear dome to simulate smoke in it and glue it on the saucer and let some smoke coming out of the saucer (Ok, the clear dome must have the same size for this method!) 5. Another idea would be to remove the dome and try to put only smoke cloud on the saucer. I hope that someone could help with - ideas how to do it, - provide pictures of painted versions here of the painted dome - or even better give also a tutorial how to to it. Truck-Windows As Darsc Zacal mentioned, with the trucks we have the same problems with the windows! About the trucks I got a cool advise from SKRHH in the comments from BrÃ¼ckenkopf-Online. Don't paint the windows, put selfmade armor plates on them. With small observation slits. For the weldseam, you could use a small hot glue gun. It is not so hard to do it. Example: (I got this picture from this site.)
