    Oct 20, 2013, 2:30 PM - Left Gauntlet Rocket Color... #1

    Hey everyone. I have a question. I seem to see that everyone says the gauntlet rocket tip is brass..... I have been looking at a ton of pics and I seem to see that some of the time it appeared copper, and other times brass. Even comparing the MOM to the SE to the ROTJ pics it is very difficult to tell. I only have copper humbrol paint, and I sure hope I don't have to go on a hunt for brass.... Anyone have any input? Thanks!

    i looks to me that the Humbrol copper would work great, looking at the art of star wars pics.. the humbrol brass is a little darker, but i think after the weathering on the rocket the copper should look spot on. not an expert.. just what i see

    I am doing an SE, but since the paint is very rubbed off I have been looking more at ROTJ. I think copper will look good after weathering too.

    Think the 501st will notice my lack of hose on the left gauntlet? It was a grave mistake that some non-boba fan put a hose on the **** missile. It's like they saw all the hoses from ROTJ and didn't realize they went on the actual hookups on the right gaunt so they taped it into the left. Just ugly. I want an approved 501st SE but jeez....
