    URGENT!!!! NEED ESB PACK REFERNCE PICS ASAP

    I have been commisioned to paint an ESB Boba jet pack / jet pack by a very High Profile Entity.
    This pack needs to be as accurate as possible & I have 2 weeks to paint it and a Jango pack.
    I need as many reference pics of the REAL Boba ESB pack as you guys can give me
    Hi-res would rock
    Please help me.
    Thanx in advance

    There really only is one good pic to even be considered for reference when painting an ESB jet pack. It is the one from the Action Figure Archive / Boba Fett armor schematic. If you don't have it I can email them both to you........

    Unfortunately that's really it. There are a couple of side shots and dark ones that have the pack, but there is absolutely no real detail. The shot I spoke of isn't too bad, considering it's all there is.

    LMK.

    Well....
    With me being the impatient guy that I am,
    I began adding the real scratches where I saw fit.
    I still need to add the yellow on the caps,
    the maroon to the piano keys,
    Red and black on the thrusters,
    and the symbols.
    Then a nice wash to even it all out.
    should be done by tomorrow

    Just a few bits of weathering I noticed you missed.

    Looks like you had the reference pic.....sorry it took me so long:o Yours looks really good....POG is a perfect base green to start with in my opinion as I used it also. I would definitely do some washes with an RLM green, some light gray, black and don't forget some black spatter, you can even toss in a tad of the rust....the ESB pack is surely weathered more than some believe as that pic has more reference than most think.

    wasn't sure if some of those spots were reflections.
    I showed the completed pic to the guy commissioning this pack & said it was fine.
    I will go back & add the scratches on the Piano keys that I completely forgot. I may add a few more details.

    Some in fact are reflections, but I circled what I thought weren't reflections. Some of the reflections are circled, but only because of damage around them.

    Very nice job on the pack!!! I feel your frustration about there only really being one good ref photo. Looks like you did as good of a job as possible with the ref we have at our disposal. Only thing I would recomend is doing some subtle weathering as DL44 suggested.

    Did some more weathering before delivery
    This is the final (please excuse the rocket being on crooked)

    Also I *think* the stripes on the lower thruster cones are redish... not black.

    I think you are correct on the stripes
    But I can't tell
    When I do the JP for JB , I will do the stripes the same reddish color
    and add more scratches, since that's the general consensus

    Would you be able to post pics of some of the damage detail you did?

    I'm not sure how you achieved the large damaged area in the back, would you be able to dicribe how to do it.

    thx

    I don't have pics and it's long gone now
    Here's what i did;
    masked a section off before painting the green
    then wet-sanded the edges to look worn off
    that's it
