    Hey guys. Just got done painting my armor. Input welcome good/bad...before I go in public . I used rustoleum spruce green satin. Please let me know your opinion on the color. You guys are the best critics cause we know how its supposed to be. Thanks.

    Looks good to me.
    I've been contemplating the Rust-oleum Spruce green satin.
    In fact, I have a can of it sitting next to my computer along with a 1' piece of crown trim painted with the spruce green, just staring at me.
    I'm not sure if I'm gonna use it or not.
    But, looking at your pics, the color doesn't look bad at all.
    Of course, I'm just a Newbie, but I say It looks good to me!
    Way to Go!

    the color itself looks good. I think you are too nice to the weathering. Slash a few more cuts in it and dirty it a bit... or a lot.

    Looks good, but I can't tell from the pics if you painted the tan/yellow that needs to be there. It helps offset the green.

    Thats the thing that sucks about camera flash, it can wash out details making them almost non existant...

    Looks good though.

    Styrene. And Ive added the decals and misted it a little with dark grey primer. I have to get some black to mist it a little more. But I used a satin and with the grey primer it dulls it up to look more worn. Ill post some pics later tonite and try to use my sisters camera thats a hellufalot better than mine to show more detail. Thanks for the input. Im listening......

    Hey Sean!

    Nice work. The color looks great.

    You sure there's yellow on there? I can see a little, but there should be a good amount around the silver bits.

    I'd mist a little yellowy orange over the knees and shoulders maybe.

    It's looking really good man!

    Cheers!
