If you're reading this then you've probably purchased a kit from me for my Phase 2 Clone Macrobinoculars. There is a video here to help as well as some text based help. Be sure to read through it all! Comments are ENABLED for this post, so please post any and all questions here. If you're unsure of something, chances are someone else is too. We can make a user-generated FAQ.

Here is a video that will get you through the installation of the hardware and touch briefly on the finishing process. More details on that coming up.
Additional Information on the Installation (This will be continuously updated as more questions arise from builders)

Since a lot of the body will be glued together, you will have to use some masking techniques to paint everything. Follow the guide below for the colors (NOTE: I'm ONLY SHOWING MY BUILD WHICH IS FOR COMMANDER BOW, OTHER COMMANDERS MAY VARY).
The eyes are to be painted to look like Brown Leather. For that I used an assortment of Brown Paints and just kinda winged it with a brush and a paper towel. I video the whole thing which I'll post if people want, but it's not the most informative video. My recommendation would be google searching how to paint something to look like leather and follow a more skilled artist. Then just paint the top of the squares black so they aren't visibile on the final backing.
