    Painting ESB Jet Pack to ROTJ Color Help

    So I bought my jet pack from a source online, and it is in the ESB colors, doesn't exactly work with my ROTJ Fett. I sanded it all down, put on a coat of primer, and a coat of silver. Is there a good order to putting down the colors, or just what you feel like at the time? I was thinking gray, yellow, red, then blue; working lightest to darkest I guess.

    Yea, that pretty much what I did- Primer, silver, white, yellow, wine, blue. mist with black and gray, drew the insignias with a pencil and then painted over it, & lastly dull coat. I have since repainted the stripes on the thrusters and large canister.

    Cool, looking forward to see your work. What method were you planning to mask your paint weathering?

    I am using liquid mask and blue painters tape. I am not going to use any rattlecans. I bought an airbrush quite awhile ago and never really used it, so I am trying to make up for it. I'll post my progress tomorrow after I take some more pics.

    Airbrushing is the way to go. I'd did the rattle cans, just because the paints are easier to find.

    I just bought another jump pack upgrade (MOW), so I'll be doing some painting again soon.

    Looking nice. Great detail capture on the top of the left fuel cell. I know the weathering washes out on photos, are you happy you got enough earth tones down, in the angles and across the keys? Also, don't fear taking a nice sharp blade to it for those little details. But that does not take anything away from a very nice pack paint job. Be proud.

    Thanks a bunch. Yeah, I was thinking about using a sharp knife on all of those little places, I like doing the scratches and stuff. I will have a chance to do some more work tomorrow and hopefully get it done!
