    The color is good! Maybe tone down the yellow on the caps, but you look to be on the right track.

    It looks good, but if you could take a picture in sunlight it might be easier to see the true colors. Good work, and dirtying it up with some washes will help.

    The base colors are looking good, but to the best of my knowledge the bottom of the fuel cells are green like the rest of the pack, not yellow.

    Great Work Laan...
    as MFett said, a wash or two will give it that nice and dirty look.

    MLC2 ??? right?

    Re: My jet pack

    Thanks Spidey, that means alot.
    Yeah, I need to dirty it up and add more details to it. But I have showed zero parts of what I have done. I have been nervous about even starting it but now that some things are done, I am actually proud of them.

    Yes sir, that is an MLC2. Love it!

    haha. None that I want to share. The black wash is giving me a problem. I spent a good part of the weekend on this. It look horrible so it is still nice and clean. I do have the silver scratches on it. But they really look too shiny. Hopefully tonight I can try out some of the links you sent me .
    I do appreciate the help too bud.
