    ESB Knees

    Hey all,

    Does anyone have a pic or an example of an ESB knee armor paint up? I looked at RafalFett's templates and it looks like they are almost completely orange, however, I see a lot of ESB showoffs and 501st approval threads where the knees are entirely yellow. A bit confused and don't want to have to paint twice if I can prevent it.

    Thanks in advance,
    Terrantula

    According to this photo (same suit used in the movie) it's a yellowish orange. Maybe if you paint it the same yellow as the shoulder pads, mist with an orange and various browns to dirty it up should give you a similar effect I would imagine. Don't quote me on it though (I haven studied up too much on ESB fett...).

    The right shoulder and the knees' base colour is different than the left shoulder:

    The right shoulder and the knees has orange as base color with brown weathering, while the left shoulder is a yellow(ish) base color with dark and light gray weathering.
