    ROTJ Bucket done

    This was a fun paint job. After having done an ESB and now a ROTJ, I have to say ROTJ is a major pain in a**. The randomness of the damage is a nightmare to replicate. I am pleased with the results. I know the right ear caps needs a bit more detailing. I have to thank Jayvee, I followed his build thread and tried to follow his example. What an amazing painter..I can only hope I did it justice. Also..I have to give a thanks to RafalFett for his monumental effort in his stencils and just general contribution to this site.


    And now for the pictures..

    Wow! You did an excellent paint job! You nailed all the colors and the weathering is awesome! And don't forget to add the 2 dental files into the rear keyhole.

    By the way, thanks for the nice words!

    Superb job bud, you did it more than justice, you completely nailed it! You are spot on when you mention how much fine detail there is hidden amongst it all. Appreciate your kind words too. Be proud of this one brother!

    In the Cargo Hold, but these are rare pieces and you'll have to wait for them.

    A guy has the dental files on here periodically. Last batch was about 6 weeks ago.

    Great paint up man. I've always been more of an ESB fan myself, but the more I look at these paint ups the more I appreciate them.
