    Prepping and painting FettPride v3 ROTJ armor?

    Hey guys, I've done a bit of searching and found a lot of info on ESB armor paints, but not so much on ROTJ armor. Does anyone have a list of any kind of paints for painting the chest, shoulder, knees, etc for a set of ROTJ?

    Also, I've read a bit about prepping the armor, would I be better off using sandpaper or steel wool? What grade of each should be used so I don't scratch it all up? Thanks guys.

    For the prep, I think that you'd just want to take a miniscule layer off of the ABS, so the steel wool should suffice.

    You seek this thread. Keep in mind that the AoSW suit was RotJ armor w/ an ESB lid.

    There's a sticky in this section with the colors I used. I'm not a fan of airbrushing props, so mine are rattlecan.

    Yeah, I saw the thread mentioned and sticky. I was unaware that AoSW was the same scheme as ROTJ as far as the body armor. I think I'm gonna try my hand at airbrushing as well. Will any type of steel wool work, or is there a certain kind I should get?
