    Jan 25, 2009, 11:09 PM - Colors! I need ESB Colors! #1

    Hello,
    I'm just wondering what the paint colors for the armor is. I know Rouge Studios has an awesome thread on helmet paints for ESB, but I'm just wondering if the ROTJ armor colors are the same (armor wise).

    I'm sure there's probably another thread somewhere but I just can't find it. Any help would be great. thanks

    US Med Green is a nice ESB basecoat. The yellow scratches would be zinc chromate made by testors. However, to make an awesome paintjob it all depends on the weathering, and the misting of lighter and darker colors to achieve a wonderful composition.

    Yeah, I see the Med. Green and zinc chromate are used for ROTJ as well. Is it essentialy the same, but different scratches?

    What color do you mist it with? Like a black, or just a darker grey or green?

    I mist mine with a darker green first and then go over that same spot with black, and then mist grey again.

    Also, just wondering, is the Preproduction 3 helmet that is used in the Reference Photo archives from ESB, it looks like all the scratches are pretty much the same.
