    Never considered that the stripe and thrusters ball details could be green!
    Who made the thrusters end caps?
    Brunswick "Green" is the name of the color... it's no where near a green tone.

    Looks great Alex!
    How did you do the silver weathering areas? Did you use steel wool or sandpaper to get the scratches? I would love you to explain your techniques in those areas. I have never seen them done so well before.

    Thanks K...

    And I did mention it at the top of the thread, but every color applied was applied topically, and there is No hard weathering (like sandpaper or steel wool) on this pack.
    I think the trick is the steps in which I applied the silver, and the fact that I used 3 types of silver. (for different tones of brightness)

    • For example I used three types of silver colors directly from the bottle, the first was using a dry brush technique with very little paint on my brush (bigger brush is better for even strokes). I used Flat Aluminum for that stage (all the major silver/damage areas)... did some important weathering with a small sponge on top of that to ensure a nice "fade".
    • The next step was using Bright Silver, again using the dry brush technique with almost no pigment...additional weathering where it was needed.
    • Lastly, and for all the detail brightest spots/scrathes all over the pack, I used Chrome Silver. Applied that with a sponge and brush as well..less is more.

    Whoops, I guess I skipped over the meaning of that. It looks very good. Did you use weathered black for the dark spot areas around the silver?

    Also I hope to see that picture of the bottom of the pack!

    Re: ESB painted MOW Jetpack

    Another question please Spidey.
    I have pretty much completed my jetpack now, just decals, installing the beacon, figuring out how to attach the rocket and weathering to do.
    One minor point, I am trying to figure out the size of the white dot that is behind the stabliser? I have put one on it is about 5mm in diameter but it just looks a little small. Can you let me know ths size of the white dot please.
    Cheers
    Steve

    Judging by the images while using Seven's template for the jetpack stabilizer I may say it's around 9 or 10mm in diameter:

    But these measurements might be off a bit...

    Thanks for the pics. I was having a difficult time locating good shots of the ESB paint job.
