    Jun 12, 2007, 5:20 AM - After a Year, the start if my armor #1

    I have almost every thing I need for my ESB fett so I started painting the armor.

    I spent most of the day masking and fighting with my airbrush and dealing with running paint.

    On the chest armor which is HS, I used the same infamos silve paint as on my helmet. The shoulders (FPv.2) has just a nice regular sivler that I like quite a bit and the cod/but have rub'n buff silver applied over the MOW rubber which is a yellow color. Gauntlets are Ruffkin with fiberglass backing, rub'n buff over most of them.

    This is just the inital paint and pulling of the masking fluid, there are alot of runs but it should come out alright. Now I need to get a ton more medium green and hope my Jet Pack shows up somtime soon.
