    Hey mate, yeh the colours we use are the humbrol paints. There about 2 a pot in hobbycraft and are numbered to show which colour, BFUK would be the one to ask which colours you need, although I do have the colour list for the Jetpack if you need it.
    Just so you know these are best used with an airbrush, your gunna also need some humbrol enamel thinner aswell to thin the paint out.

    Garrett only did the ESB colour scheme tutorial.... patiently waiting for him to do a ROTJ one as well....lol.

    Humbrol paints do vary in price, and you need shed loads of them TBH, and some need to be mixed together as well. It's not a cheap costume in parts or in paint !!

    As welshwarrior123 stated, you do need an airbrush for the humbrol paints.. hand brushing them just won't give the right look.

    Here's TerminalFettlers (Garretts) paintup thread.... http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f23/o...int-job-30707/

    Study very carefully...

    Also bear in mind, a paint job of that nature takes time... You have to let the coats dry before you move onto the next coat...

    I took one look at TF's list and thought... hell time to open up a new bottle of whiskey...lol..

    If you've never painted something like that before, my advise would be to commission someone local...

    If you're into rattle cans which give a slightly smother paint finish than humbrol paint try Halfords filler undercoat for the shoulder pads and and the undercoat on the armour visible in the scratches. And rustoleum oxford green for the armour sold at home base. I'll be up loading photos of my ESB armour soon.

    Hi again, I've finished spraying my web armour and the combination that I used was Oxford green and sage green misted into each other. I must confess I'm not a perfectionist and this may not be as precise as some enthusiasts would like. But it's a very quick way of getting a relatively good finish.
