    Erm.. just allot of over spray from the layers? should I have painted it a specific colour...

    I have ensured that no 'white' ABS is visible?

    Nah the base coat is different.. allot lighter! I layed down my base coat (mix) then misted Olive green highlights.. then brown tones, then the grey/black scorch marks...

    Consider this the MK2 version?
    Masking fluid used was the Humbrol 'Maskol'... nice and purple so you can see where you have been?

    Yeah that humbrol maskol is good stuff, just don't leave it for a few months and then go back to it thinking it'll be ok, it wont be, it ends up like porridge!!

    Nice job, Gav!
    The first set of pics looked great, but the daylight pics look better!
    Don't you love peeling off that mask and seeing how it turned out?
    Hope your yellow turns up soon so you can post some more pics.

    Oh and Alex.. thanks for the 'flattening tip'
    No prob...Looks Amazing....
    remember there's some additional weathering after you get the yellow on to help pull it all together..

    Hey bud,
    Depends on what type of 'spray' you mean? rattle can or airbrush? If the later again it can depend on where you are from? (sorry if this seems stupid) I'm in the UK and used various colours from what we can get over here?
    If your in the good old USA then check out DM's thread as all the colours can be sourced from there?
    Always remember too that depending on the eye, some custom mixes will be needed?

    No worries bro... DM is DarthMiller and he is painting the ultimate ESB for JB himself? All the colours he is using is mentioned in his thread bud (I think)... The base is not Panzer but the lighter highlights are? then the grey/black mists and then the earth tones...

    I'd be foolish to steer you in the wrong direction when DM can totally direct ya?

    Cheers for looking at my thread and read it...

    This armour just gets better and better mate. When you going to put the yellow on though?

    I might have to pick your brains further soon though Gav, as i will be getting some new knees and shoulders (we will have to talk paint )
