    Dec 20, 2011, 4:11 PM - Still need help with some ESB paint colours!! :( Really struggling. #1

    Hi guys,

    I have made a thread before about this. But it also had some other stuff about it. I am waiting to buy some ESB unpainted armour as I don't know what colours I would spray them I am only able to use Rattlecans. If someone could help, that'll be awesome. I also haven't bought the unpainted armour as some painted armour may pop up at an affordable price

    Cheers,

    Jay.

    Could potentially save yourself a lot of headache and order it shipped in US paints. http://www.amazon.com/Rust-Oleum-773...4419677&sr=1-1

    Fett Full of Dollar$ made a thread dedicated to IDing rattlecan colors. Check it out.

    Can't ship compressed cans over seas. :'( I may have to brave the airbrush.

    Makes sense. Don't despair! Honestly I've spent so much on rattlecans at this point I wish I got an airbrush and compressor from the word go. I hear it's not too much to handle either for full coats/ misting, which is what most of Fett painting will be.

    Cool, cheers for the advice. I just need to find that rattlecan conversion chart and see if the colours swap over. Cheers.

    Unfortunately I think it will be a lot of trial and error. I got lucky as Jayvee has done all the leg work for us Aussies wanting to use spray cans. Hoping to get my final few cans on Friday so I can paint during the holiday break.
    Maybe you can find colours that are close and put them up here for comment. Spray a test pattern on some ABS or something and see what everyone thinks.

    That would be very expensive for me. I have just turned 20 and expendable income is minimum. But thanks for the thought. for the lighter parts of the helmet and the jetpack I used Tamiya Field Grey. I am hoping this is exactly the same as spruce green :P
