    Jan 31, 2006, 5:28 AM - ESB Ear Cap color? #1

    Hi all.
    I've been working on an ESB bucket, but I'm confused as to ear cap colors.
    I've seen silver, green, sand, even (I think) gold.
    Which is correct?
    Thanks

    Yes, you are right, the colours are confusing. Mine right now are silver, I might paint them gold soon though.

    I've seen allot of Gold ear caps on the range-finder side, but I think BS-1 is right, the "Earth" color is a more Accurate color if you are doing ESB...Per the REF photos anyway...

    I used Testors Panzerdunkelgelb on mine. That was according to the Rogue Studios color list, and I think it matches the reference pics pretty closely.

    Cunning stuff.... Interestingly the Art of Starwars seems to show that the right (rf) earcap is indeed 'earth', but the left cap seems to be olive drab... Is this just lighting or is that an accurate observation?
