    General question about painting ESB armor

    I was curious as to whether or not it was definite that the shading around the chrome parts was topical in ESB.

    What do you mean shading? You mean the carbon scoring around the blaster marks? Well noone knows 100% but I think someone said it was window wash with black water based paint mixed in it and sprayed on to give it a dirty look. That is how I did my armor anyway.

    If you mean the yellowish color around the silver, than yes it is my understanding that it was topical, just like ROTJ.... but I've been wrong before

    Yes, I did mean the yellowish color around the silver. Sorry for being vague.
