    You guessed it...another ESB (oops!) paint job

    Yes, I'm finally getting around to painting my fp V2.0 armor. It's been a while but I'm pretty happy with the results. I must admit that I used Spidey's awesome paint job for the JB project armor as my reference...seemed to be the best pictures of ESB stuff I could find. Without further ado...






    The chest is done with a base of POG from the helmet then misted with several other greens from the helmet and Spidey's post from the JB project.

    The base on the shoulders was done with Reefer Yellow. The right shoulder was then dusted in different thicknesses with Reefer Orange. The burnt affect was just mixing stuff until I came up with something I was happy with. All of the base coating and misting were done with airbrush...my first time with an airbrush! The damage was done topically. Hope you guys approve!

    ESP? You painted this using your mind!

    Looks great! I have always thought the ESB armor might have had POG on it and your color looks pretty nice to me.

    the base is the POG from the helmet. Then as Spidey dusted different spots in the JB armor I did the same thing, just kind of randomly hit spots with PRR brunswick green, Euro Dark green, RLM 82, and RLM 71. Then at the end I ran the compressor down pretty low and tried to splatter on a little weathered black that came out much better in some places than others.
