    I'm getting ready to order all my paints for the big project.. Just had a few questions about the list..

    For the Rangefinder ear, RS has 'Earth' , but Lord Fett has 'Panzer dark yellow' .. was it originally yellow and RS later edited to the earth?

    Did we ever discover what a good color to mix with the doped linen was? I've found the Panzer Dunkelgelb, but not in Acrylic..

    and any other good 'unsure' color discoveries that anyone has made along the way would be real helpful..

    I've read so many different stories on the Box car red, that I don't think I even wanna ask about that one..

    Any help would be great..

    Hey all!

    Color question for suggestions: I'm combing through the Ref pics for detail, but I'm not sure what color to go with for the dull scratch color around the chrome chips on the tp of the dome and the cheeks. Is this a greyish color? a dark green-grey? It tends to look like a lot of different colors. Any help would be great!

    RLM's are german Air Force colors. MILW stands for Milwalkee(sp). PRR is Pacific railroad. All of these designations are on the particular bottle.

    Lets discuss the yellow-ish / grey on the back of the helmet.

    Quote Jango_Fett_Jr said:
    One colour I don't see is the back of the helmet, the yellow-ish grey scratches. Has that colour been IDed?
    After re-reading this entire thread, and searching the helmet forum, I still havn't found a generally accepted color for this part of the helmet.

    Quote Baddblood said:
    I had used Doped Linen originally ... it was a little too green, almost neon at times IMHO.
    I agree 100% Baddblood. I went with the masking method on my helmet, Chrome, Doped Linen, then the Euro I Dark Green (mixed with RLM 24 blue), and the Doped Linen looks like a neon yellow/green.

    I plan on going to the hobby shop to get a replacement color(s), but I wanted to toss out the options and see what the consensus may be. Here is what I could find:

    - Doped Linen (RS post 125 in this thread)
    - Panzer Dunkelgelb 1943 (Jango's Kid post 126 in this thread)
    - Sand & Up Armor Yellow (Darth Miller in his thread)
    - Khaki & Humbrols Egg Blue (Steve the Swede in his thread)
    - ? (SpideyFett what did you use?)

    I am leaning toward the Panzer Dunkelgelb 1943, but I would like to get some feedback from those that have finished their helmets. Also, a single color is easier to nail down, than a personal mixture of two colors.

    Gator

    P.S. The list in post #1 still does not contain a line item for this color on the helmet. Could that post be edited, to at least ID the need for a yellow-ish / grey color on the back of the helmet.

    Lee told me to mention that Doped Linen is (probably) wrong, he just hasnt had time to go back and research that particular colour lately. So I guess the way to go about that colour is to experiment. Let us know what you decide to use Gator

    I bought the Panzer Dunkelgelb 1943, but its not right either. It is a little better than the Doped Linen, but it is too green, and does not match. I also picked up a bottle of Sand, to try Darth Millers mix, since I already have the Up Armor Yellow.

    The Sand is very light, so I went 2 parts Sand to 3/4 parts Up Armor Yellow. It worked out to about the right tint of color but it was too bright. I added in a few drops of Black to tone it down a bit, and it looks pretty good.

    While I was at the hobby shop I noticed a few collors in the "desert cammo" line that look real close. IIRC there was a color called Desert Sand that was darker than plain Sand and may be closer to what we are looking for. Next time I make it to the store I am going to pick up a bottle and give it a try.

    I used Model master "Sand", mix in a little testors "panzer dark yellow" and also mixed in a little model masters "euro dark green." In the reference pics you can see that though it's light, there is a hint of green in there.

    To echo the toughts from previous posts, I think the ESB Armour, gauntlets, and JP are all the same color as the helmet dome/cheeks.

    So far, I used testors spray enamels (flat SAC Bomber green) on my bucket, so I think that's what I'll do for the rest of the armour (ESB) but one thing eludes me... A good color for the back of the bucket. I read that Euro dark green is the accepted color. What would be the equivalent to the floquil bottled acrylics? I'm thinking the Modelmaster Euro green might work, yes/no?

    When I'm finished, I'm going to make a colour chart of spray cans that can be used without an airbrush and/or mixing. Several people I think, have asked for this method, so it's a bit of an experiment.

    Shinobi

    edit: ModelMaster Euro Green is not in a spray... crud, that sets me back... Any suggestions?

    Does anyone have any more tips on making the colors "deeper" as it says in the tutroial at www.starwarshelmets.com (esb)? Do I use the dullcote after I put the main colors on, then make the colors "deeper" then dullcote again if I am going topical???

    Hurm.... in some shots, the dome looks the same color as the chest armour, pack and gauntlets. In some the chest pieces look like the brighter, medium green.... I wish there was an exhibit with the ESB used armor. (chest, gauntlets, cod, pack) That woould solve everything! Look:

    OK, I'm sure this is common knowledge, but the ESB armour is not the same as ROTJ... Colour-wise tat is. The ROTJ armour is definately the Med Green, wereas the ESB armour matches the dome/cheek color closer. Some pieces do look different tints, but the same general range. The scarring is also different between styles. Look:

    It's all in the weathering I promise. Although the armor is a different color than helmet it's going to be difficult to definitively say what color is correct for ESB armor. I would say whatever looks good to you but weathering it is key and finding out the color under the weathering.

    Peace out

    Question to any and all: I got a bottle of Boxcar Red from the Testors website, but it's kind of dull looking. Upon further inspection, the list in the first post recommends enamel, and looking at the bottle I got, it's acrylic. I haven't tested it out yet, but I was just wondering if anyone else had used acrylic Boxcar Red and what the results were.

    The acrylic boxcar red is a little dull, even when dried. A lot of people have brightened it up with other reds. I'm not sure if the enamel is any brighter.
