    Gathering Paints for ESB

    Okay peeps, with my FettPride armor just about here and my Jet Pack nearing compleation....I've started to browse and search the forums for colors to start picking and ordering paints. From what I'm looking at I'm wanting the following....

    US Medium Green (armor and jp main color)
    Zinc Chromate
    Silver or Aluminum
    US Armor Yellow (knees and shoulders)

    and some darker orange color for the other shoulder for ESB correct?

    Am I on the right path? Also any colors that come in rattle cans vs. airbrushes?

    Add to your list Panzer olive green, dunkelgrun RLM 82 for highlight misting and black and brown for weathering.
    These are all Testors airbrush colors. If you want rattle can Krylon make the yellow (line marking) and orange (pumpkin)
    There is a thread here somewhere on rattle can greens.
    There is a good tutorial over on the Dune Sea Garrison for painting Boba armor.
    I am just researching the paint myself and that's what I've found so far, hope that helps.

    Thanks guys and yes deadland that is one of the threads that I've been reading thru. I think the thing that I'm most unsure about is the orange color for the one shoulder (pumpkin) Mike said and line marking Yellow?

    I can't find Up Armor Yellow for the shoulders and knees? Is that the right color title?

    UP Armor Yellow. Got all fifteen colours, then? I love having a model railroad shop to go to, since half of these are RR colours. *heh*

    Um well I got most of them...lol. Lucky for me my LHS had both aircraft and rail-road paints. I wasn't able to get UP Armor Yellow, it's SP Armor Yellow but it looks exactly the same...lmao.

    Do you ever get down to the Seattle area? American Eagle Hobbies in Lake City (and the model railroad store in the basement) are where I get most of my paints, including all of these.
