    ROTJ Paint Color List for Helmet

    Folks keep PMing me for the colors I used on Ripcodes helemt and here they are easy to find. I will specify the exact grays I used as I have time.

    Humbrol matt 31(main color)

    Cabboose Flouquil enamel (mandibles)

    Rainbow hobby enamel
    "54 Blu Marina"(Lower cheeks)

    Tamiya
    "TS 43 Racing green"(rear)

    Color to mist on top of the Tamiya racing green as the Tamiya color was too deep green this will add just a little blue and grey hue:

    Humbrol enamel 88 (rear) *Use this color to tone down the main green by dry brushing it on lightly.

    Humbrol super enamel 82 (killstripes)

    You can use various grays for the some of the areas around the scratches.

    The misting/weathering was done by mixing some gray enamel with Weathered black and lightly airbrushign it on.

    The rust on the ears was weathered black with some rust enamel.

    Forhead arrow was Insignia Red.

    Discolorations were darkend and lightened Matt 31 Humbrol enamel by mixing white and or weathered black.

    Silver was Hubrol Chrome Silver enamel.

    SE = special edition. For the special edition of ROTJ, they included some additional Fett scenes, they used the original ROTJ suit, but for some reason, put an ESB bucket on. Hence, Rotj SE = ROTJ suit + ESB bucket!!

    Free bump here,

    Once again, if anyone needs colors picked up let me know. I'm running out to the shop for a few myself soon. They have every paint listed on this list and others.
    I picked a bunch up for Predatormv on the last run.

    Justin, could you direct me to a few of those pics of Rip's bucket you painted ?

    Thanks,

    ~Mike

    I would be down with dat.

    I will be adding a few more details to this thread this weekend along with pics of natural light, flash and non flash swatches of the color chips for folks as well. This will give folks the ability if they cant find a particular color to just match it best they can.

    Hey bud, glad Mike was able to help you out with the paints. Sadly time isnt something I have alot of and I often bite off alot and keep my self super busy. I know Predatormv asked me to pick some up and I was un able to find time.

    Is that the only difference - just an esb helmet on ROTJ suit?
