    Dec 20, 2004, 11:42 AM - Paint scheme for Brits! #1

    Are there any British painters out there who can suggests some accurate paints for mixing together for the paint scheme on a Fett helmet?
    I've got a nice bucket that I'm doing up and need some help in getting accurate colours for the dome, lower cheeks and rear. I tend to use Tamiya Color or Humbrol acrylics, and would like to know if anyone has any suggestions.

    Thanks folks

    British Green: Armor, upper cheeks, back.
    Dark Green: Dome, lower cheeks.
    Camel Yellow: Shoulder and knee pads.
    Mica Red: Around the visor.

    I hope this could help you

    The small paint pots go far and can be easy to mix as there water base. I also used a airbrush to paint the black scoring etc.

    cheers
