    If you go to the 'Gallery' in TDH's main tabs and look under the exhibit photos for Boba Fett, you'll get some of the best reference you can hope to find! Hope this helps...

    Here is your image compared to the ROTJ Hero left chest plate:

    The original armor is more like a dark green (not green/blue like yours) and heavily weathered with misted black in some areas.

    RAF, cheers mate :-) even the pic of the original looks slightly blue green when light hits it such as top left corner.mine is quite dark green as u can see in the bit the suns hitting. Guess its a case of trial n error, I Misted it with black it prob just doesn't show up too well. I know it needs weathering as well but gotta get the green close first,been Misting various mid/ dark greens and black.
    Cheers f f

    Yeah, might be the lighting! Maybe you post some hi-res images with and without natural light.
