    Mar 5, 2008, 11:49 PM - my painted armor so far, JP too #1

    Most everything here is done. The jet pack isn't finished, still stuff to do on that.

    I'm very happy with the spray can results. I've been using the layering method. Mostly the paints were found at wal-mart or lowes. the "catwhisker yellow" was a yellow I made up when I needed the color.

    I'm not pleased with the jet pack paint job, but it's still a WIP. I got the JP super cheap. It's not nearly 100% but IMO it's close enough for right now. If I get the urge I can add a new one later.

    Hope you guys like!

    Looks nice! I have to ask, what are the coloured bits on the dart launchers of the bottom knee?

    I saw a couple of people who are uber-accuracy nuts have their darts colored red and blue so I did it with mine. I just painted the tips red/blue is all.

    if you look at the mom exhibit pics in the TDH reference gallery you'll see the colors on the knee darts. one of those tiny details that not everyone bothers with, but is there, at least on the mom suit. no clue if they are that way in the movie
