Rogue Studios' ESB Color list & Painting Techniques

    Re: Rogue Studios' ESB Color list & Painting Techniques

    Hey,

    Hi Lee, I asked a few years back (yes years ) but I don;t think it was ever properly answered. Is the ESB armor the same color as the Helmet? In the movie caps and production stills, it looks like it is. In some scenes, it appears to be the olive tone of the dome, yet in the Bespin toture chamber foyer, it looks like the medium green. Then in the while hallways, it's looking olive again. what's going on here? Do you know, or does anyone else know for certain whether the ESB armor color is the same medium green as ROTJ? Thanks

    These days I think most of us are using floquil/pollyscale US med green for the ESB armour, which is the same color Lee recomends for the ROTJ armour. We still don't know for shure, but Dm used US med green on JB's armour, and it looked great. I have used it on mine as well since then, and I like it.

    Re: Rogue Studios' ESB Color list & Painting Techniques

    Hey guys,
    Just wondering what color everyone's using for the lighter color on the silver parts on the back and in the dent. I don't see anything on Lee's list and I can't figure out what it is. Seems to look different in all the photos.

    Here's a pic I borrowed from Superjedi's awesome thread to illustrate. I hope he doesn't mind

    If you can get hold of humbrol enamels, try 147, it looks grey but depending on the adjacent colour, takes on a blue or green hue. I tried 100's of different mixes but this was spot on from the tin...

    Howdo chaps of TDH...

    I am a new poster on this site but a long trem reader. I am currently awaiting delivery of a helmet from Bobamaker and am researching the paints available here in Scotland / UK.

    Does anybody on here know which paints can be purchased in the UK, eg, brands, colours etc, for an ESB style bucket?

    Really hope somebody can answer my query???

    Hi Rod, try searching for Terminal Fettlers list of ESB colours, they are all Humbrol I believe and available in the UK

    Hey,

    You can even order them online at testors.com. I'm pretty sure they ship international. They stock Floquil and PollyScale. You generally want to use enamels as much as you can, as stated in this post. Cheers! and Good luck!

    Re: Rogue Studios' ESB Color list & Painting Techniques

    Thanks for the great info. I will have to use this when i finally get around to painting my helmet.

    Re: Rogue Studios' ESB Color list & Painting Techniques

    This thread is so awesome!

    I have a question, though. I saw that the main colours for the shoulders and knees are these:

    * Reefer Yellow (Shoulders and knees put on heavier on knees but not much this color gets darker the more you throw down).
    * ATSF Catwhisker Yellow (Shoulders and knees the trim around the scratches).

    I found them at testors, but they look way too light?

    And now I see they don't ship to Europe. Is anyone willing to help a girl in need of paint?

    Most vendors Ive been in contact with will ship to Europe, but they wont reimburse anything taken in customs.

    And regarding customs, I have a friend whos a customs officer and he said that they usually wont bother confiscating such small amounts of paint. I got all my paints from the US... Oh, and there are European webshops selling these paints as well. PM sent.

    Re: Rogue Studios' ESB Color list & Painting Techniques

    Thanks! I've sent them a mail, and hopefully they will be helpful. I looked at the link you sent me, but couldn't find the right paint names when I searched? I have no clue on what numbers to search for, so I'll have to see if I can find a conversion chart or something. They had a lot of colours, so it looks promising if I can find the colours I need.

    I'm still wondering about the reefer and catwhisker yellow, they look too dim. Did they change or anything?
