    Feb 26, 2012, 7:17 PM - ESB painted MOW Jetpack #1

    Hi all, been away for some time.. it's always nice to come back and see all the great work on TDH, everyone here is so extremely talented; and its amazing to see how far the Fett hobby has come..

    I recently recieved a PM asking if I still painted, and if I Only painted helmets?....
    I still do paint and anything Fett related I would say is "game".

    Here is a recent MOW Jetpack that I completed for a client outside of TDH.
    It is completely topical (paint application) and there is no hard weathering, every color is painted...as I feel that the over all movie look is best replicated topically.
    There are many many layers of paint on this pack, and different techniques used..

    *I would be happy to answer any questions about what paints I used, colors, and what reference I used.
    I think that would be easier than me just posting a color listing.

    Enjoy.

    One of the best ESB jetpacks I've ever seen man (I usually don't like the one-toned jetpack, so I don't say that lightly)! Would you please go through your process a little more in detail?

    while I do disagree with you about Topical looking the best, i cannot disagree with the results.
    Very well done my friend.

    Thanks.. and I think that a detailed outline would take a while.. but the ESB pack has always been my favorite because of the Depth of color, its more than just green...

    Hey Nate, I def had the advantage of viewing your work in person. I def took your approach in allot of the washes and layers that were added, Good Artist steal from others..

    Man that is beautiful.
    About to kick start mine once the weather fines up a bit.
    I have a couple of questions, hope you don't mind.
    - What colour is the yellow you used?
    - Any chance for a pick of the bottom of the pack?

    Testors had a formula color change sometime ago.. and before then I would say Floquil UP Armor Yellow... but the new mix isn't right according to color swatches (from a very good source). The closest color in my mind, after trail and error... is SP Armor Yellow (Floquil)... it seems a bit saturated at first, but once the weathering is applied it does what it's suppose to.

    Here you go,,, this was taken early in the weathering process... so it's about half way done, but its the only pic I have.

    I'm about to start painting my MOW pack this week during my spring break. I'd be very interested to know your reference source; so far the best I have are five shots I've collected from the gallery from the Bespin hallway shoot. I plan on doing a mixed technique of layering and topical but I was wondering what your strategy was for attacking the piano key section and only painting the tops of the keys (I plan on using rattlecans).

    Same here! I see some orange-brown weathering on the bottom caps, but I can't see the weathered yellow. But maybe SpideyFett will share any reference images with that part...

    Alex great work as always, just out of curiosity what base green color are you using. I love all the subtle coloring with what looks like rust, silver and what looks like grimy black.

    *I do have one new pic that I am looking to get permission to show, .. working on it. but I think it will show enough of the bottom that its def a yellow "ish" color....

    The green is good ole' Panzer Olive Green... seeing as how it's not being made anymore I had to stock up, and ended up getting it matched pretty close aswell.
    For the lighter tones and splatter I used RAF Interior Green.
    Every color is from the bottle... so no mixing.

    I think the yellow makes sense...I mean the top is like that, the prepro and rotj have the bottom and top caps the same color. I did the last one I painted the same.

    Well.. simply, hand painted. It really is the best way. Slave1Pilot can attest to that.. its just easier than masking.
    For rattlecans, you'd prob have to mask it.

    Yeash, yeah I do not plan on masking that entire section. Since I'll probably have to buy a bottle color then can you recommend one? Also any reference shots you could share would be amazing.

    I have seen this bad boy in person and let me say that it is the best ESB jetpack I have ever seen.

    Another question on paint colours if I may.
    The red colour on the piano key area? I assume that this is the same colour used on the bottom of the thrusters, the part near the collar on the rocket and the horizontal stripe on the bottom right tank.
    The other colour I am not sure if it is a blue or black. The colour that appears on the thusters around the centre silver/red part and the horizontal stripe on the bottom right of the tank.
    Looking at a ref pick, the yellow colour on the sivler collar on the rocket. This looks to be the same colour as the yellow on the top and bottom of the tubes, do you see it that way as well?

    Yes, the same color.. weathering should make it look different, as the collar on the rocket does appear to be darker. But the same base color would be right. Caboose (Floquil)

    Yes, it appears black, prob is.. but the color I used was Brunswick Green (Floquil)

    Yup, in the earlier pics I just forgot to add it on the Rocket... but yes. SP Armor Yellow (Floquil)...

    Never considered that the stripe and thrusters ball details could be green!
    Who made the thrusters end caps?
