    I have gotten the yellow down - but it still needs more coats - so more paint will be on hand tomorrow. Then it will have an orange mist added.

    At this tiime I am having problems uploading my photos to photobucket - so will sign up else where and get them up asap!

    More tomorrow.

    You're starting with the best base IMO, the Bobamaker Jet Pack, so this will be a great thread to be on (it)

    Re: Jango Fett Classic Jetpack Paint up.

    Hi all - what with all the projects and the old bread knife I have not had a great deal of time to up date this - sorry Phil.

    So here are some updates.....more coming later.

    Yellow first.


    I used Revell SM310 for the yello in the end.

    Masked ready for the blue.....



    .which is almost done right now. Will get the next photo on in an hour or so.

    In retro-spect... wouldn't it have been more prudent to dust your yellow areas with the orange before you masked it off to shoot the blue? It would save you having to re-mask that area.

    Just a thought I had.

    Got the blue down.

    Here is a shot to compare the yellow and blue together next to the Boba colours.

    The blue looks pretty good but that yellow needs more orange.

    I agree, the yellow needs to turn more of a school bus colour.

    Re: Jango Fett Classic Jetpack Paint up.

    What with the white bits on the bottom of the blue spine Rob?

    You painted the rocket and thrusters and the back of the jet pack?

    The pack's looking really good, can't wait to see how the weathering starts to turn out. I really love these jet pack threads, makes me excited for when I finally start mine.

    Lol, just make sure not to paint too much. When the room starts to shift like you're on a boat, it's time to take a break.

    Update

    I got the lines and decals applied. Decals by Lucksy31 and they really bring it to life. You will see that the yellow has been improved. This was done by using a caramel coat with a thinner coat of the same yellow over the top.

    Next I need to touch in some areas and then seal with a satin clear coat prior to adding the 'matt finish' weathering of black and earth tones.
