    -Wal-Mart brand Royal Blue #20001
    -Wal-Mart brand Flat White #20009
    -Krylon Burgandy satin #3503
    (also used for gauntlets)
    -Krylon Pumpkn Orange #2411
    (also used for shoulders and knees)

    I'll get a list of the other colors used and post them in the appropriate sections as I get to them.

    Later fellow Fett fans!!

    Merged: What paint colors/brands to use for the jetpack?

    What are the different colors necessary for painting the jet pack? (I am doing ROTJ version). Also, what are some worthy brands of paints?

    I would appreciate any exact brands/color names. Thanks!!

    Here is my ROTJ / preprop pack......




    I used a whole combination of colors on my pack, not one single color on it is one single color, other than the black and silver, but a combination of colors to get a good weatherd faded look effect.....

    The main blue is Walmart Brand ColorPlace Navy blue, I misted on to it testors light blue and french blue to give it a nice faded look.

    The white color is Color place Ivory misted with ColorPlace Flat white.

    The Yellow is Color Place Equipment yellow misted with Krylon Pumpkin orange.
    THe red is Color place Burgandy misted with testors dark red.

    The stripes are black decal tape. The lettering on the white pack tops, between the stripes is done with large tip magic marker just like the real ROTJ pack.
    I weathered the pack with silver paint and I used artist pastles sanded to a powder with sand paper and applied to the pack to make it look dirty, I then misted the pack with flat black to give it a little dirtier look.
    Then I cleared the whole thing Testors clear flat.

    Can somebody give me the name of colors they used on there jet pack.....I.E. Rustoleum Blue.

    Merged: Merged: Re: Jet Pack Colors

    Dokie Okie! I used rustoleum Burgandy, Chrome, and Almond, plus Krylon True Blue Satin, and Wal-Mart Equipment Yellow. Lots of misting with ultra-flat black, and grey primer, plus Testors Red-Metal-Flake for the missle tip. To be uber accurate the yellow should be combined with Krylon Pumpkin Orange, but I figured that out after my paint job, and that's a lot of taping! Hope this helps.

    im not sure if this has been covered before but does anyone have an idea what color the ESB jet pack color is?i have no idea.it looks like it may be a shade of sage that is used for helmet.help me here im puzzled.

    for those who have an ESB fett what color did you use?

    I had wanted to use sage but ended up only with spruce (same as the armor). I believe the spruce was too dark and still plan to use sage on mine.

    I would look at the thread in the helmet forum, it gives lots of the colors that were used on the original helmet, and I'm pretty sure the same colors would have been used on the jet pack. If you don't feel like buying 20 little bottles of model paint, I think you just buy one to test, could make a sample of the color, and take it somewhere and have a quart made to match.

    On a further note, the jet pack that I painted spruce looked too dark in person but photographed VERY well in my opinion.

    Here's the pic:

    Is that a "teaser" on the background, Phil?
    Will definitely contact you when it comes to painting my pack as I'm sure you'll be painting one pretty soon, eh?

    lol, yeah, gotta take every opportunity to snap a pic of that GF suit

    I hadn't been happy with the color up until now. I don't know if it's right but it appears to photograph pretty well. I might try that color again and see how it looks photographed with the other pieces.

    Knowing now that the helmet color is much darker than had been previously thought, it's understandable that every other color on the suit might be darker as well.

    I'll be sure to post pics when my new JP shows up

    Thanks Mardon,
    Phil

    Sooo...any progress on this guys??
    JMP: So do you find that the Sage is alright?

    And does anyone else have a good color they'd like to share with me? I'm looking for an exact brand as well if you can offer that !

    I'm planning on painting my jet pack and gauntlets the same Panzer Olive Green 1943 as my helmet.

    The color looks darn good, and I think it would look good too on the jet pack!

    Now, if I can just find some!

    I think it can be ordered online, can't it? I've probably been told before, but...

    Wow, you're gonna spend alot of money buying tons of those tiny bottles then!
    I like the Panzer color too but the bottles are way too small and expensive for me to go painting the whole JP!

    I think this stuff goes farther that you might think. I'd guess you wouldn't need more than four bottles. Five, maybe.

    I figured I paid a ton for my JP so I'm not going to get cheap on the paint. Ya know. And I'm cheap, believe you me.

    I don't think Panzer OG is the correct colour for the JP though (I'm pretty sure that the gauntlets are POG, but the armor is another colour and the JP is yet another color still -- that is just my opinion though).

    I think JMP's spruce colour looks pretty good as pictured above.

    Cheers!

    It should go pretty far...but, I will be painting my gauntlets first, should another color show up before I paint my JP, then okay, I'll switch...
