    Jul 1, 2007, 7:41 PM - slave1pilot paints another ROTJ pack #1

    I 've been commissioned by a memeber here (i'll let him disclose if he chooses) to paint another pack.
    It's another MLC2 , painted using Lee's list of paints (mostly )
    The base is Krylon "Dull Aluminum"
    with a clear coat or too to help keep the other colors from peeling
    I only have the yellow done today.
    The Yellow is Floquil "UP Armor Yellow"
    The darker color misted around the edge is a custom mix of "UP Armour Yellow" mixed with Floquil "Boxcar" to darken it a little
    I'll try to paint the other colors each day so the pack will be done by Friday.

    I joined a Gym today
    Too tired to mask again tonite
    don't wanna rush it, so my timeline might be pushed back a little
    I'll mask & paint the white tomorrow night
    I let it dry for 24 hours between colors

    Trudging on
    the white has been sprayed
    The White is Colorplace "Flat White" from Wal-mart
    I'm sure any old white would do, just make sure it's flat
    mrs.slave1pilot says the taping is the hardest part
    gotta love her

    Didn't Tom Petty sing that?

    Seriously, though that looks great so far. Do you mind sharing what silver/chrome paint you used as a base?

    I cheated a little & left most of the tape on
    I did the scratches on the white & remasked for the red
    Now, Lee says to use "Boxcar" red for the Jet Pack.
    I feel that it's too brown , so I use Poly S "Wisconsin Central Maroon"
    I could only get it in gloss, so I have to use a few coats of Matte to dull it
    here it is still taped up with 1 coat of "Matte finish" from Krylon

    since it's been well over 100 degrees around here lately, I don't have to wait very long between coats to let them dry
    I removed the tape from the red
    I still need to remove the masking fluid & add some scratches

    clear coat the other layers, what a wonderful idea. I know the silver is a real pain!

    Thanks for posting. How are you getting the weathering? Is the paint coming up with the tape?

    I mask off the areas that I don't want painted with Blue tape.
    Then I use Liquid masking fluid to mask the major areas that are to remain silver

    Then after the paint has thoroughly dried (very important to be patient here) I remove the tape
    I let the paint dry even longer , then I get to work with an X-acto knife
    I look at reference pics & try to duplicate the majority of the scratches
    I don't try to make it exact, (that would drive me crazy) i just try to get the "feel" of the scratches

    so, they are real scratches & chips on the jet pack
    I feel it gives a very realistivc feel to the pack when seen in person

    Michelle wasn't kidding, you're all kinds of awesome when it comes to painting.

    great job as usual

    i feel the same way about the scratches. i don't try to get every one exactly right, but i try to get the right... i dunno... density of damage? that seems a decent way to describe it.
