    Are these the colors that are posted on the sticky? Can you give the color assortment when you get the chance to. It gonna be a sweet jet pack when its all said and done.

    Colors so far:

    rock Island maroon
    Copen Blue
    Up Armor Yellow

    I am not 100% satisified with the Blue so I will be adding some dark shades to it with my airbrush

    Just waiting for my MLC v2 to come in so good timing DM

    Looking good so far... I agree that the blue needs to be a bit darker... Planning on keeping an eye on this thread...

    Man, that's looking great!
    The jet pack is the last 'large' component I still need to do, and I'm definitely going to keep this tutorial in mind.
    Is the Copen (I'm assuming Copenhagen) Blue a Floquil/Polly S color?

    Re: ROTJ Jetpack step by step

    DM - I think the blue is a great choice.

    Keep in mind that your flash lightened it up a bit. The key as I'm sure you know, is weathering. Once you start applying your "dirt, grease and grime"
    it will darken up nicely. When it's flashed, you will still see the lighter color underneath as you can see in the flash photos taken at MoM/AoSW. Based
    on those pics, I think your choice is a good one.

    Flashes never do anything good for color when taking armor and prop pics.

    But its looking sweet!

    DM,

    Are your colors airbrushed, or rattle can? I found masking these suckers to be a very tedious job! Not trying to steal your hijack your thread, but here is mine before the heavy topical weathering. The flash did some funny things to my colors.

    I ended up masking mine a total of 6 times. I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy!

    Are your colors acrylics or enamels? Which brand paint?
