    Looking for some painting help

    Ok, I am starting to finally get some more parts for my suit, and since they are smaller pieces (shin tools and the sidearm) I want to give them a shot. Are there any WIPs that have paint templates and colors for these?

    Dont think there is but i think most of us use that ruddy red primer (i use krylon) and gloss clearcoat it for the side arm. Shin tools i just use any base silver and red and black for the stripes/markings on them. i mask them off with painters tape. The knife/stirrer is the same color as the ESB helmet ear.

    Are there templates for the shapes of the stripes and damage on the shin tools?

    I dont think so. I just looked at pics for reference and used tape. They are straight lines for the most part, so its easy to do.

    Here are some drawings I did with all the shin tools positions on all suits ==> RafalFett's Misc Templates and Blueprints - Post #3

    I might do some stencils for the paint strips...

    Thanks 22, but I'm going to give these a try. They are small and don't have a lot of paint on them so I should be ok.
