    repainted my chest armor

    Worked on it some last week and I just wanted to show it off.



    Hope you like. I think shoulder bells and knees will be next.

    Nice set of chest armour you have there! However, I think the black misting is a little thick in some places.

    Thanks guys! I'm really happy with the way this turned out. I think my suit is going to look pretty good once it's done. I don't have an airbrush so I have to do everything with brushes and spray cans. It's a combo of layered and topical painting.

    I love the colors, the shoulder bells look great as well. Did you use the colors from the RS list?

    Thanks again for the compliments!

    MrGr8ness,

    The only 'real' color is the yellow zinch chromate. The green is just Hunt Club Green from Lowes. I used a Krylon Matte spray on it before I did the back mysting.

    Thanks Ben!

    Gr8ness,

    I used krylon farm implement yellow I believe. I'll have to go home (next week) and find out for sure but I'm almost positive that's what it was.
