This isnt done yet, but i thought id post this up for Verbal and everyone to see so far. The armor is IOA(RKD). It is very nice.
Primer and silver undercoat are implied here. Armor was masked for the silver damage, and sprayed with testors gloss yellow. I sprayed a coat of krylon matt finish. I removed the masking. Then the Yellow(and silver) damage was masked and sprayed with rustoleum spruce green and then with rustoleum Hunt club green. (masking was added between the spruce green and the hunt club green on the ab plate. Krylon Matt finish was again sprayed. I lightly scratached the armor randomly just to get a worn look. Not very deep at all, just surface scuff basically.
I will be misting the armor with krylon black primer and the hunt club green to get the correct ROTJ look and to dull down the yellow.
The knees and shoulders were masked for silver damage and spayed with Krylon 1813 OSHA safety yellow. the mask was removed. The safety yellow(and silver) was masked and then the knees and shoulders were sprayed with Krylon Equiptment yellow, and misted with the testors yellow. I also used an airbrush and sprayed on floquill rust to get the look of the shoulder i saw in screen caps. All mask was removed.
I think the gauntlets are cuckblack, and made of fiberglass. They were previously painted by Saint_nasty but due to the way i assembled them, i pretty much ruined the paint, so they needed to be repainted. I added hinges and clips similar to MOW's. I will add one of my rockets as the cuckblack one shattered when i tried to attach it.
These were sanded and primed black. Then sprayed silver with testors chrome. I then masked the silver damage and sprayed krylon black primer. and then krylon fusion red pepper. then removed the mask. Misted with an airbrush in some spots with the floquil rust.
These will also be misted with a little bit of the black primer to complete.
Im not a fan of the claret wine color alot of people use for the gaunts. When i look at screen caps, they look blantantly red to me...dark dirty red, but red. That wine color is very purple and IMO it just doesnt look right.
All the damaged is based off of screen shots. I wanted the look of the damage from the film rather than the screen used LFL archive/touring suit in its current state with even more damage.
