    Ok quick qustion.the hobby town usa here where i live has closed, so pollyscale pints are out.I just need to know what color in a rattlecan looks closest to lark grey.I plan on masking off the silver areas on the dome, and spraying the grey the masking off the outlines around the scratches.I thought maybe a dark flat grey would be good, but primer seems to rub off to easily, and finding a flat dark grey is a task.I am trying to avoid brushing on the grey as it looks to thick, when it is done.
    as for the mandibles, I always do those topically, and I like to use rust red acrylic simply brushed on, rather than the burgundy spray.

    question.. is the upper cheeks and back on the helmet really part blue? Cause I swear I see alot of ROTJ helmets where it's just darker green. ANy help would be awesome, I just want to be accurate but I also need to be sure that this is right before I go buy paints, paint it and hate how it looks

    Slight change to the list as far as the ESB colors go. We recently started carrying a brand of paints at Lowe's called Valspar. They have a color called 'Merlot' (pronounced MER-low) which looks alot closer to the screen used color than the Krylon Burgundy Satin. The Valspar Merlot has more of a brown undertone to it as opposed to the pink undertone in the Burgundy Satin. Here's a pic of it on my MSH2 without any weathering. Just finished putting on the base colors. Tomorrow I'll do the killstripes.

    Hey guys
    Ive been racking my brain and my patience trying to get the base colour right for a fett helm i got a while ago. I have repainted it god knows how many times and have too many colours of green but still even with misting and mixing it doesnt come anywhere close. Just wondering if there are any irish fett heads that know where to find a good spray that matches the base? Unfortunately all the paints listed here cant be found in Dublin, well not by me anyways:P

    Cheers lads

    *edit, not sure if i should have posted in this sticky or made a new thread*

    Hey Dark Jedi,
    I have a helmet like that, that I'm repainting as a ROTJ. Get some gloss black and go over the area of the "T" visor that is false, it makes it look more like a full visor. Or just do what i'm doing cut it out and replace it. Way better visibility. Just a thought.. Otherwise looks good.

    Yes, this is something I agree with because that lower half of the visor makes the whole thing look worse. It's like a huge mole on someone's face. The rest may look great, but all you see is that one hideous blemish. I'd highly recomend cutting off the fake visor part and getting a full visor.

    Hi, I was wondering if you knew of any particular chain store that carried polly scale paints. Or, would most art supply stores carry them?

    Thank you,

    Timmer

    Look in hobby shops around you. I doubt any art store would carry PS paints.

    Great list! This is just what I need (or will need when I get to that point) to try my hand at painting the helmet once I finish "Cheapo Fett v0.02b". Now if I could just find a post like this one with a collection of all the different types of materials you folks are all using. Cheapo Fett is made of garbage, literally since I couldn't even find the thick cardboard stuff locally. I am building him out of the remains of three ring binders that were in the trash at work!

    Is there a good collection anywhere of materials, sources, and general price info anywhere? A few searches only turned up antman's post which,while excellent,doesn't help me find that cardboard here in Ohio,or even in the US for that matter.

    Search for "garbage can armor" or "trash can armor".. There are some great threads here for that. Also take a peek at the Mandalorian Mercenary site. Many folks there have unique ways of making their armor, etc.
