    QUESTION: Is my green too light?

    I'm working on my kidney plate before I move onto the other pieces and I'm going off of the MoM pics. I know the kidney and cod are lighter than the chest pieces, but I'm wondering if mine is too light and I need to find a darker green or if the color is right. Right now I'm using Rusto Spruce green as was recommended on here. Here is the kidney plate (ignore the racing stripe ), and the kidney next to my chest pieces (cucblack).

    Thanks!

    something to keep in mind about the MoM exhibit it that the cod is not the ROTJ but the prepro cod.

    Haha I have it all bass ackwards huh? Should I be looking at the AoSW pics then? I didn't see a breakdown of the difference between MoM and AoSW. I assume as long as all the parts are there and painted similar to what's seen in the gallery/on screen it'll pass 501st, but I'd like to do it "right", you know?

    You can't entirely use one exhibit. The M.O.M. has a pre-pro codpiece, and the AOSW exhibit has a pre-pro left knee armor (and ESB helmet). I painted mine almost entirely off the M.O.M. pics, but used the AOSW pics to paint the codpiece to more match full ROTJ style.

    Thanks Mr. Fett, that's what I was looking for. All I have to paint is the back plate, cod, and kidney (don't have the knees yet) so between the AOSW for the cod and the other paint threads around here I think I'll have it figured out.
