    thanks! well, it is the testor's zinc chromate, so i am not sure how that compares to the other brands...i still have to steelwool it down a bit, and of course the matte finish...so that will dull it up a bunch...

    Being a total noob, I know diddly about the painting / build up of Fett armour etc....

    It's threads like this that give me a serious insight to the top job you all do at creating the character.

    Absolutely loving the work you've done so far.... top stuff.

    Maybe oneday, I'll be giving it a go myself..

    Wow I dont check a thread for a while and a things go crazy. That is a really great paintjob bud!

    I think that the yellow should be toned down a tiny bit. I have found that zinc chromate with a tiny bit of gray mixed in makes it the perfect color.

    Great work big D.... I agree with some others that the Zinc you used appears to be a little bright? but I'm sure with a small mist or wash with grim should tone and bring it all together?
    SO when do we get to see th money' shot all the armour together and outside to see those subtle tones in the green...
