    well, it has been awhile since i have posted any progress on the armor, so here are some pics of what i have been working on...i know the yellow is a little bright, i havent had a chance to steelwool the areas and put the matte coat on, but you get the idea... thanks for looking!!

    looking good so far. hopefully a wash of black misty paint will tone it down some. looks like Fett dropped a mustardy hotdog on himself lol. I would imagine it would tone down with the black mist quite a bit. Not sure if Matte alone would change the overall color, just the glossiness.

    Great updates D... I think you have done an awesome job bro!
    I personally don't use washes? I never tried the whole window cleaner and paint mix thing...
    What I did but obviously I used an airbrush, was to mix/thin some grimy black heavily then mist all over the armour from about 12" away and it really toned down the yellow.

    any time i've ever used a wash, it was just mixed with water. never heard of using window cleaner. I rattlecan'd my whole set, i just stood really far back and lightly sprayed black all over it. misted it. then wiped with a lightly damp cloth in some places and a dry one in others.

    Darell, where did you get your fine grade steel wool? I have been looking for it for a long long time now and I cannot seem to find it anywhere except online.

    that does look amazing, keep up the good work!!

    I agree with the others, if you wanna tone down the yellow a mist layer will work perfectly... I' ve never used an air brush though... simple spray paint cans work just as well for me... that is probably untill I get my hands on an air brush... :P

    Re: BRAND NEW BOBAMAKER ARMOR

    The armor looks good. I can't say it is worth the money...because I have always been cheap. The paint looks really good, I need to learn how to do the battle damage, I've never been good at it. What do you use to do the silver?

    Re: BRAND NEW BOBAMAKER ARMOR

    i just use Testor's silver, topically... and eyeball where the damage is using reference pictures...

    That armor is totally awesome. I'm jealous. Heh, with any luck, I'll buy myself some bobamaker armor next year, if I'm not still tired and poor by then.
