    I saw this pic of the an ESB & ROTJ lid on the boards.

    The ESB colours look very similar to mine own. However I want to do a ROTJ and would really like to match the colours of this ROTJ lid. Does anyone have a paint list that might come close? I had always intended to use the same colours for both my lids !!!!!

    *Humbrol matt 31(main color)
    *Humbrol "77 Matt Navy Blue" (Lower cheeks)
    *Tamiya "TS 43 Racing green"(rear)
    *Humbrol enamel 88 (rear) *Use this color to tone down the main green by dry brushing it on lightly.
    *Cabboose Flouquil enamel (mandibles)
    *Humbrol super enamel 82 (killstripes)
    *The misting/weathering was done by mixing some gray enamel with Weathered black and lightly airbrushign it on.
    *Discolorations were darkend and lightened Matt 31 Humbrol enamel by mixing white and or weathered black.
    *Silver was Hubrol Chrome Silver enamel.
