    The Tuscan and Imperial Naval Green look dead-on to me. I don't know where people are getting this "bluish-green" from.

    I've slowly started weathering my helmet. It's far from finished, but I just added the silver to the mandibles and had to share. It's just crazy what the flash will do to the colors.

    Hey Boba Phat, a couple questions for you:

    Did you paint the kill marks on? (if yes, did you use a template?)
    Do you use the Grun for the left earpiece too?
    What is your visor made of?
    And shouldn't the upper cheeks be a more flatter black?
    Finally, what different colors did you use in that pic for the scratches?

    Thanks! And sorry for all the questions!

    PS: That helmet looks phat dude! I mean it!! I can't wait to see the rest of the weathering!

    Just checking in for any updates on unidentifieds.

    I hate to seem like a vulture, picking at the advice and (possibly, very) expensive research of others. I did want to say thanks, if I haven't already for all of this.

    THANKS!

    Geoff

    P.S. As far as I can see with my very unauthoratative eyes, everyone that has begun painting using the prescribed colors is pulling it off with amazing results!

    Boba Phat, how did you do your wheathering? It looks great so far! Did you add it on after painting the other colors, or did paint your bucket silver first and then mask it off? These colors are looking great on your buckets!!

    Sorry, but I just read through this post (again) and wanted to revive it with two questions:

    Is the Tuscan Red what we have decided on?
    What happened to the ROTJ colors?

    And if there hasnt been anything found yet for the ROTJ colors what is everyone using? I didnt like the colors I chose last time.

    I used the Euro Dark Green for the back of mine and for the armor. I think it looks pretty nice, but hey, that's just me!

    This maybe a silly question but anyone know the blueish green color that is the upper cheaks on the pre-pro #2 suit? Same question for the mandibles?

    The inner cheek color for the 2nd PrePro (not the eyes helmet) is pretty much the color they used on Jedi. I think they did go back and weather the cheeks for Jedi, though making them a bit more "grey."

    Sorry...just moving this thread up to the
    top of the list so i can find it easier next
    time around. I'll be getting my MLC Boba helmet
    soon (hopefully), so i wanted to revisit this
    thread to get the closest to correct ESB paints.

    You may want to contact Micke or Fett-UK they both live across the pond and could help you find the right colors.

    Jez, my local hobby shop stocks testors paints. I can see if they are able to get colours to order, or whether they just get what they are given.

    Mail me or PM me with the colours you're after.

    Cheers,

    Si

    I made a separate post. But basically I told anyone who wanted to know the colors to just ask me and I would give it to them needless to say no one asked so I figured it wasn't that big of deal anymore. But for those of you who had to stay home I'll have them up soon. I just woke up and still tired as crud.
