    "Paint by numbers" Humbrol Visual Guide - ESB & ROTJ Helmet & ESB Armor

    Hello folks.. since i am a person who really likes to have stuff on a visual level before starting a project i thought i would make a visual representation of
    Terminal fettlers Humbrol paintjob as seen in his thread http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f23/o...int-job-30707/ .
    Doing that i have used one of Rafalfett's images from his Boba Fett ESB Helmet Stencils thread http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f23/b...tencils-41899/ .

    This image can be used in conjunction with Rafalfett's Stencils to quickly see what Humbrol color goes where.

    If i have missed something please leave a reply.
    All credit goes to Terminal fettler and Rafalfett (sorry that i molested your image) .

    Okay so i looked around and and put together this one and i am pretty sure that its at least 75% ESB accurate
    please give me your comments and critique.



    Again i have used the supreme stencils by Rafalfett and color info compiled from snippets around TDH

    Rafalfett's decals : http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f25/a...-decals-42537/
    Rafalfett's armor stencils : http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f25/b...tencils-42095/

    Heres the v1 non -wip of the ROTJ Paintup

    This Paintjob can be considered more intens than the ESB one in my opinion, take a look at the ROTJ paint threads before starting and study the ROTJ images in the Gallery !


    This one was compiled from Jayvee's ROTJ paintup as-well as Terminal Fettler's color list.
    The Image was borrowed from Rafalfett's ROTJ Stencils.
    Thanks to everyone who contributed on this especially when trying to located the right Red humbrol combo for the mandibles.

    Leave a reply if you have any questions or just comments on this !


    EDIT XX-JAN-2014 : I am still unsure about the coloring of the dent, maybe someone could enlighten me. <-- Please message me if you have some insight on this!
    EDIT 06-JAN-2014 : Updated the first post with the superior image.
    EDIT 17-JAN-2014 : Moved armor image up top.
    EDIT 11-FEB-2014 : Added v1 of the ROTJ Helmet.

    What does "mist beige" mean? Is it similar to washing? Or is it a mix?

    as i understand reading the Terminal fettler thread it is just a light spray of the beige color.

    Great idea to do this. I'm sure it'll get used quite a bit.

    You might want to post up a larger image though (some of the letters are a little small).

    And the day-glow purple is burning my retinas, but that may just be me...

    Thanks for the reply's.
    I am glad if i have helped someone in any way
    I basically made this to make it easier for myself to see what color goes where, and since i am still a lot
    of time away from being able to paint my lid i might as well prepare in any way possible :P.

    Awesome translation/conversion - I always thought the red on the left ear was slightly lighter than the rest.

    Thanks for sharing this!

    Re: &quot;Paint by numbers&quot; Humbrol Visual Guide

    I will try to look into doing the same thing for the armor later today, but i better ask Rafalfett for permission to use others of his stencil images for this.

    Re: &quot;Paint by numbers&quot; Humbrol Visual Guide

    Hey again !
    Been working on the armor color guide .
    I been using Rafalfett's images again with some small touches by myself and i have used another one of Terminal fettler's humbrol paint ups.


    EDIT: I made a silly mistake making the image below, Terminal fettler's paint list is for a AOSW paint up while i was aiming for ESB colors like the stencils - I Will correct this when i am sure what humbrol colors should be used!
    Hopefully no one has used this image yet thinking it was ESB accurate


    Terminal fettler's paint up http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f25/a...ur-list-36590/
    Rafalfett's stencils http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f25/b...tencils-42095/


    Anyway here's what i got so far.

    Re: "Paint by numbers" Humbrol Visual Guide

    The armour paint list you are looking at is specifically for the armour pieces on the AOSW reference pics, where as Raf's templates are for the screen used ESB armour pieces...

    ah i see.. to be honest i just followed the armor path on this mindmeister chart witch lead to your thread Boba Fett Paint Colors - MindMeister Mind Map .
    I can see that i should have payed better attention to start with.

    i was thinking that might be the case .. because of the Mythosaur.. i was trying to find out for sure just now

    Re: "Paint by numbers" Humbrol Visual Guide

    Maybe do a search for ESB armour colour list, should give you some good options to match colours to Raf's templates...
