    ROTJ paint up

    Well I've been here along time now and been collecting information and parts here and there, but it's finally time to start my WIP thread!
    Using RKD armor parts - easily the best pulls I've ever gotten between all the different armor types and kits I've worked on over the years. (detail, shape, thickness and feel)

    Got the shoulders and Knees done, other than weathering and the shoulder Decal.
    All I could get done today due to bad weather here:

    Re: ROTJ paint up

    The base color looks a bit too pale for me (maybe bad lighting?), but you said that you need to weather it, so this might help to correct the overall look. I advise you to get reference images from the MoM (Star Wars the Magic of Myth) and SWtE (Star Wars the Exhibition) exhibitions, because this suit hase most of the original ROTJ parts. I also noticed that the knee darts are positioned too deep into the knees, but this is an easy fix. There are lots of good reference images in the Gallery and you should always double check each stage of the building/painting. Keep up the great work!
