As a few of you may know, I have a bad tendency of creating costumes of a basic quality and then selling them off to fund something else. Not this one I assure you.
This is my first attempt at painting accurate battle damage to match the ref. pics. I had a hell of a time finding good ESB shots so I wouldn't be suprised if people reply that I inadvertantly copied the ROTJ armor.
I finished this up this weekend after being "creatively stuck" for a few weeks. The color is Concorde Green from Walmart Canada and has been darkened along the edges with powdered charcoal. I still need to scrub it all down with a scrub pad to get the **** clear coat shine toned down.
The bitter joy of this armor is that I had done a nice layered paintjob but cheaped out and used an "Orange" paint for the damage. The orange didn't look too bad but no where near accurate so I ended up buying the chromate paint and going over the orange topicaly. Oh well, something for Fett 2.0 I guess. The chromate looks too yellow in the pics but in normal light it looks great.
Here's a pic of my hardware ESB flamethrower. It should look a lot less thrown together after it's painted.
As always, feedback and critiques are welcomed.
