    I bought the Rusto claret wine and Testors burgundy rattle can for mine. Was using Stormtrooperguys pics and color list. I think his might be a little darker than SA. But it looks great to me. Talked to 22spllt about his colors? He's painted a few ROTJ armor and gaunt sets.

    Hey Syllander, here is the swatch of XF-65 Flat Field Grey



    I also did a Humbrol 100 test for gauntlets...a bit too orange I think.

    The grey(green) looks good man. Pic for sure looks too orangey for the gauntlets though. Does humbrol have a burgundy?
    I really like the color Bobamaker has on his mannequin on the web page. Your spot on about the weathering too. Really have to darken up even the burgundy so you don't look like Clown Fett!

    There's a Humbrol 133 that I may try. It's got more of that 'wine' colour. I'll see if I can snag a swatch this weekend.

    I'm looking forward to watching your build. You've obviously done your homework and seem headed in the right direction. Keep it up and I'm sure I'll learn a thing or two that I can apply to my ESB.

    Thanks guys. It's so weird looking back at the start of this thread, doing all the research, slowly adding to the build...and I'm ALMOST ready for the hard pieces.

    Any chance this will be done and on display at Vancouver Fan Expo in April?

    Hah! No My goal is Celebration VII April 2015, but anytime before that is gravy. Chances are, I'll have it ready for Halloween this year.

    Anywho, I managed to take another look at the gauntlet colour. The hobby shop guy tried to match it based on the idea of something similar to Floquil Caboose/Wisconsin Central Maroon (the ideal colours, now discontinued).

    We found something from Model Masters called British Crimson. Anyone have luck with this?





    Now, for some reason unbeknownst to me, this doesn't look like the test we did in the store. Could be the lighting, could be that it's on white paper (although it does have the silver underneath), I don't know...but when we did the test in the store, it looked a lot more like it's supposed to.

    Here is an example I found online of someone else using the colour:

    Hard to say, definitely think the white is washing it out visually. "Appears too crimson" in this photo....

    The physical examples give it a much better representation. Perhaps I'm just a terrible swatch artist

    Now that I see it on a better screen...looks like maybe it's just thin, like it needs another coat. The ref pics look pretty good. just need the black overspray....

    The white is definitely washing it out & another coat wouldn't hurt. The reference photos make it look better & look closer the color of the gauntlets. Are you planning on using the same color for the gauntlets & the red on the helmet? If you are might want to see how it looks against the green for the dome.

    Good point, toolguy. I do intend to use the same colour - as I believe it to be the same as the gauntlets. I think the mandibles have a different shade of the colour though since (from reading Jayvee's thread) it gets sprayed with a grey as well.

    Hi Deathproof,

    i used Wisconsin Central Maroon for my gaunts. I think it is the perfect colour. I ordered two bottles but only used one. So I have one spare (bottle is 29,5ml). I think you could do the gaunts and the helmet parts with one bottle. I by myself only used a halft bottle for my gaunts. If you are interested drop me a pm

    DP, the helmet does get some gray misted on it. Which will tone it down some. Which changes the look of the red some. But being next to the green does brighten it up some as well. The reference photo you have of the airplane is a pretty good example how it will probably look on the helmet. Definitely on the right track.

    Just wanted to touch base real quick. Still waiting on my hard stuff, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it will be soon

    In the meantime, I thought I'd update you on the weathering since Christmas.






    Airedale photobomb!










    Again, trying to match the promo/studio shots. I'm quite happy with the gradient from the knees down. I added some more tan to the pouches today.

    Also, I've been working on a Boushh costume for my partner which has been quite fun in my down time. Looking forward to that coming along as well. My Aker amps should also be arriving soon so I should start practicing my 'fett voice.'

    When did you order the FP armor (In beginning Sept.2013)? Same question about the Lid...
    Did you make/Buy a new JP harness?

    How about a bucket?
    I ordered everything (all hard pieces) in July/August, but gave Chris instructions that I would wait for the FPH2-ROTJ as I was in no hurry.

    My JP harness is a MOW harness. Fits very nicely. Looking forward to seeing how the jetpack feels when attached.

    Not that I know of.

    It will get here though. I can't imagine how much stress Chris has to deal with, so it's best to just be patient
