    If it just me or do other people find the Polyscale Boxcar Red isn't really all that red? More sort of a brown?

    I'm using it on the exterior of the T visor (mandible?) and I'm finding that its more sort of a brown than it is a red.

    This is of course ontop of a chrome base but I'm using multiple coats of the Boxcar Red.

    Also, in the pictures located on the ONLINE BOBA FETT RESOURCE CD v1.0 or whatever its called... the ESB looking Fett has silver/chrome colored left ear but this thread says RLM Green??

    I don't know about the boxcar red but the left ear on the ESB helmet is green.
    Here is ROTJ

    Here is the ESB
    http://200.72.163.179/cdref/0601_0700/Boba_Fett_604.jpg

    Maybe you mistakened the ROTJ or the prepro for the ESB helmet but it is definately green.
    Hope this helps.

    I do not know the color of the box car red in person, but from what I have seen, the mandible colors from the Prepros down to ESB to Jedi (which was a prepro helmet of sorts) lean more toward being a rust/brown-red color than a true red.

    Another good question to ask would be what color is the rear ventilation area on the back of the helmet?

    Looks like it could be Boxcar Red but it could also be a Maroon of some kind too.

    OK, so I know that I have to thin out the paints for airbrushing. What is recommended to get here. Does it matter if it says it is for acrylics or enamel. I saw 1/4 oz. containers on the testors site for 2.99 a pop. That doesn't seem like much of a deal considering all of the painting I will be doing. I'll have to get a suitcase of the stuff. They also have "Floquil - Polly Scale Airbrush Thin 16 Oz." for 7.99, a far better deal. Can I use this or is it the wrong stuff. Just a tad bit confused and lacking knowledge here. Can someone please shed some light. Thanks a bunch.

    Hey there, I need some help.

    I'm tracking down the colors for the ESB helmet and was hoping someone that's gotten them can give me the numbers for a couple of the paints


    RLM Green (There seems to be a couple on the Paint charts, I'm not sure which one)

    Euro Dark Green (I've found Dark Green, not Euro Dark Green)


    Either the Floquil or Polly S will work. Man this is very enjoyable to me. Painting will start soon.

    OK, here's a quick question, I finally been able to secure these paints in Sweden (wasn't easy).

    Anyway, I know that the Euro Dark green is only listed as unsure for the back of the helmet but I ordered it anyway. The only one that seems to carry that color is Model Masters (acrylics) so that's what I ordered. When I tried it out next to the Panzer green I was a bit surprised! To me it just looked way to much like the Panzer green, only a tad darker. It also seems to lack a lot of the blue tone that I expected it to have. All the ref pics seems to have the back green/blue much darker then the dome and cheeks.

    Any thoughts? Have anybody actually used this paint on a finished bucket? Did I get the wrong paint?

    Any help would be great.

    Steve.

    What I did with the euro dark green is I added a touch of "Dunkelblau" it's a german blue and is available in the smae line of colors..it really helps it out give it a try I think you will be very pleased.

    I've found all the colors except the RLM Green, and PRR Green. Are these Polly Scale/Floquil colors? Testors Acrylic?

    Prr Green is Floquil/Polly S (one in the same doesn't matter)..the other is Testors (technically all brands are Testors since Testors owns all three). Acrylic/Enamel..I use Acylic although I have been told Enamels were used on the Jedi and prepro helmets.

    So we got the chrome (bright silver) scratches, the grey scratches...what about the purplish-grey scratches around the mandible?

    PRR Maroon need to add a little black to it to darken if you don't use acrylic coate. You guys know where to send the Super Bowl tickets right?

    Just wondering what everyone used as a protective coating on their helmets after they were finished painting it all.

    Duracoat? Clearcoat of some kind?

    Rogue:
    Thank for this info man! I'm also curious, I painted my mandibles with Floquil Tuscan. Is that color close to Boxcar Red? I just don't want to repaint this if the colors are fairly the same! But if it's totally different, please tell me!

    If anyone other than RogueStudios could also confirm this, I'd greatly appreciate it

    Cheers,
    Bobo

    Bobo,

    I don't know how much weight my opinion holds on this matter but I used the same Tuscan as you and I swear its on! Someone else may say otherwise but I can't tell the difference.

    Yeah, I think I followed your lead with the Tuscan. And ofcourse, your opinion is VERY heavy Any opinion which helps holds weight!

    So did you visually compare the two? The reason I ask is because now I'm starting to think that maybe Tuscan is a little too brown and not enough red? I hope I'm wrong.

    My personal opinion is that Tuscan has too much brown-- a little more coffe than rust-like.

    I went through the testor's site while ordering my paints i wrote up a shopping list with part numbers.

    Helmet (Empire version)
    * Panzer Olive Green (Cheeks and dome) F505113
    * Boxcar Red (mandibles) F414281
    * UP Armor Yellow (Verticle stripes) F414170
    * MILW Road Orange (Verticle stripes) F414152
    * SP Lark Dark Gray 'unsure' (Gray around scratches) F414182
    * Rust (various locations) F414323
    * Chrome (scratches) I think this was actually a color called bright silver but this works best.
    * Euro Dark green 'Unsure' back of helmet. 4729 (Model Master)
    * Panzer dark yellow (Rangefinder ear) if you do not have aluminum ears you will need to mix a silver with this to tone it down. F505111
    * RLM Green (Left ear) 'unsure' F505056
    * PRR Green (Inside cheeks) this is practically black. F414164
    * Rock Island Maroon (Red scratches on left ear). F414248
    * Light Gray (on left ear) any light gray will do. F505061

    Yeah, I was worried about that
    Thanks lordfett, that'll help

    So, before I make my decision on repainting or not, does anyone maybe have a side by side picture comparison of the Tuscan vs. Boxcar?

    Cheers,

    *BUMP*

    Oh yeah, and I also wanted to know whether I should rub that dark wash stuff onto the armor, jet pack and other parts as well?

    Other than that, I'm also wondering what is the best thinner to get for my airbrush...since I've never used one
    (should I use my airbrush for all my suit?)

    Thanks!

    This site has some paints on sale. http://www.hobbylinc.com/prods/rh_flo.htm That's where I got mine from. They didn't have all the colors though.
