    Oct 16, 2014, 1:02 PM - Floquil ROTJ Helmet list? #1

    I'm planning on doing the Jedi version of the helmet and I'd like to use Floquils paints as I've amassed quite a few of those over the years from doing models and such.
    I searched a little but all i found was Humbrol and spray paint cans.
    can anyone help me out?

    Rock island maroon for the red on the cheeks....there's no other colors I can really recommend as I haven't painted using floquils for the other areas... but that is my new color for the cheeks that I'm very happy with.

    Is there any way to get that colour, @Fett 4 Real? I remember looking for floquil paints, specifically the red, but the shipping was ridiculous to Canada, or I couldn't find the right colour. I assume the same colour would be used for the gauntlets?

    I tried the british crimson on a swatch...but I think I failed at making a useful swatch. It did not come out how I thought it would.

    This was my swatch:



    I found some other photos of it painted on some airplanes...and it looks right....here is my post: #84

    I also thought Humbrol 100 + Humbrol 73 at a 1:1 ratio looked pretty good....but you're more of an expert at ROTJ than me, so whatever you think is closest works for me.

    Cool. Looking forward to that. I have been toiling over that red for a while. It would be good to see british crimson used on a helmet so I have a better frame of reference. And just to confirm - you agree it's the same red on the gauntlets?

    Yes same red as the base color.

    And I have 3 bottle of the rock island. And it's pretty much the same color.

    I've used caboose and it's a bit duller then the rock island and British crimson. Just something to think about. However. Old caboose is more brilliant. But more red then we want for the helmet I think...

    Thanks for the heads up, Dom. I'll be sure to stock that when I get to painting.

    That British crimson looks pretty good, even in that colour swatch. I used Caboose on mine, and really like it, so you prob won't go too wrong with either. The back panel green I will stick to my mix of CNW green and Southern Green (1:1 mix). Other than that, I used a lot of Humbrol colours. Floquils have been discontinued, so finding them may be getting trickier...
