    I installed white elastic band into the knee armor. They are just glued in with gel super glue. After that I weathered them with brown and black acryl paint.

    In reality the knee and right shoulder armor are more orange, than shown in the pictures.

    Looking good..... I would say that the left shoulder still looks orange, as it should be yellow. Maybe that's just the pics......
