    Feb 14, 2008, 2:06 PM - Mojo's FP ESB Paintjob (loads a pics) #1

    Hey guys n gals,

    I wasn't gonna post this thread as I was a tad nervous (to be honest) painting an albino lid is one thing but trying to paint and do the FP Armour justice is another...
    But as I have been asked by a couple of buds here in blighty (Jon, Joe & Paul) to post , including a webbed friend

    Here is a very 'quick' step by step photo gallery on how it looks at present, from Silver - weathering

    I hope you like what I've done? and critique is more than welcome as the weathering is at a stage that more can be added?

    Oh.. and before I forget! FP..cheers bro, this Armour is totally awesome! 8)

    That is sooo nice Gavin - WOW !

    I'm with Alex - it so cool to see all the gradient weathering and misting. Look how far have we come with this stuff as a collective !!! Back in the day, that was always forgotten or omitted because people couldn't tell if it was just lighting, or distortion through a plexi case. It's nice to see that people are catching on that it is very real !

    Smashing job so far bro !!

    I don't think I ever mentioned the Shoulders did I???

    for Both, I use UP Armor Yellow as a base....yes, I know they are different.. but then I use the same color as the scratches Yellow Zinc Chromite as the next overlay color for the Left shoulder bell...
    Then Reefer Orange for the orange tones on the right one..... and then the addtional tones and weathering throughout...

    and glad I could help.
