Here we have a collection of parts that is needed for the operation of Wall-E, Body, Head, neck,arms,Servos, and Bs2p board for testing, Adifferent board will be used for the BS2P40 CPU.

Tracked system added here.

Body primed and sanded ready for detailed rivets.

First stages of the weathering process, After the grey primer I have sprayed rust primer over the grey.

Body gets the same treatment.

Neck is about to get the rivet treatment, PVA glue is thinned 40% with water and a sharp instrument is used to form the rivets by dipping it into the glue then applying it in an even fashion to the neck area's.

Rivets applied and some larger ones, This glue will dry clear and will be sprayed in silver.

This technique becomes effective when sprayed.

Same process for the hands, but now sprayed in silver.

Same process for the neck.

As you can see it is becoming quit effective as you layer the paint process.

Hand gets the same treatment.
