I know that I haven't made that many posts on this board but I felt that I needed to consult the major Fett heads on this issue. I'm curently working on an ESB helmet for Jez, the owner of the Star Wars helmet page. Everything is going very well and after alot of work I've been able to secure all the paints here in Sweden that was listed by Lee. They all make perfect sense except for one....BOX CAR RED!!! This can't be right, can it!? I'm using Polly scales acrylic and it just looks aweful! I've stirred the bottle like a mad man but the color (applied on white) looks like a cross between dark purple and brown/grey!? Not even a hint of red. My first reaction was that must have mixed up the list, it must have been meant for the small purple scratches but I checked it again and it's the paint that's been listed for the mandibles.
What do you guys think!? I've done some serious research of the ESB helmet, compared it photographed under different conditions...well, I just don't know.
Anybody have an oppinion on this subject!?
