    Feb 17, 2005, 7:06 PM - Color ESB Boba CHest #1

    what color is boba's ESB chest plates. I was told they were spruce green long ago and had them dun up with som rustolium satin spruce green but there was just somthing I didnt like about it. I do have some model master RAF dark green that seems to have the right darkness about it.

    TELL ME WHAT YOU GUY'S THINK??????

    I'm pretty confident that Rustoleum Spruce Green was NOT used on the original ESB armor.

    I thought it was a Floquil or Polyscale color...Dunklegrun, or something like that?

    I would certainly explore the Floquil/ Pollyscale line. I don't think a definite color has been found yet for the ESB armor.

    The only thing with using the Carbon chamber for reference is it's poor and indifferent lighting....I think the Bespin hallways are much better since they are of a white background with a front light source evident by the minor shadow on the floor behind him.

    I personally used Panzer Olive green and gave it alot of weathering to get it to where I was completely satisfied. It came out great. I am confident that the Panzer green was used on all the ESB armor,jet pack and then weathered to varying degrees.

    no offense,but that is a poor pic...it looks kinda brown to me. I'm kinda biased on the Panzer being used on everything on the ESB costume ie. gauntlets,chest,cod,butt,neck,back,jet pack and helmet with the proper weathering.


    If you use your photo program to take a color sample of each peice where the green shade looks similar and keep doing cross comparisons the color bytes are identical. I used this method when trying to figure out what base to use. While this is certainly not concrete proof,it provided me with enough to make the commitment of Panzer green for a base and going from there. I love mine

    It's because your image is saved as a gif instead of a jpeg. You colors are banding because a gif only uses a 256 color palate.

    Also, this your second and final warning for using random characters to mask a curse word. Please read the code of conduct if you need a refresher on what constitutes acceptable posting.

    well I got som Panzer olive grun and compaired it dry along side the RAF dark green and there realy not that different. the RAF is more of a dark moldy color and the olive Grun is more of a dark Grass color but there realy not that different. ones just a little more green and glossy so instead of doing a new paint job now Ill wait till after DragonCon till I do a new paint job. The weathering just took so much time.

    I've always thought the armor pieces were the same color as the back of the helmet. The just seem a half shade darker than the dome. I used Euro Dark Green for the back of my helmet and for the chest, back, ab and cod. It seems to look pretty good.
