    Jango Paint Colours

    Hi guys. I am about to start a Jango Classic Pack paint. I would like to get conformation of the colours - and/or how they differ from Bobba's ROTJ.

    Thanks for all the help.

    Bobby.

    I listed the paint colors I used here: http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showthread.php?t=22614

    Seeker found some good colors too, but there is no "definitive" list for Jango's jet pack colors. Jango's jet pack colors are richer than Boba's. If you can't find the colors I used, you'll probably just have to come up with some on your own based on the reference pictures.

    Would say the decals are different to Boba's ROTJ. The Jet Pack has no scratches, it has weathering on Jango's. Good luck painting Rob.

    Think these pics are from you Foxbatkllr. With your permission, here is a pic of Jeptack compared to Jango's pics.

    Re: Jango Paint Colours

    Thanks guys, There seems to be a few different approaches and no definite path to take. I think I will be fine and match the colours just fine. WIP to follow shortly.

    Fox, nice job........set the bar high, cheers

    Yeah from what I can remember there isn't a definitve list unfortunately, will you be looking to use an airbrush Rob or spray cans, from the looks of it the colours are matt as opposed to gloss, maybe keep that in mind if you are using spray cans, mind you it could all be dulled down with weathering and a clearcoat

    I used Floquil on the one I did
    Light Blue, UP Armor Yellow, Boxcar Red ,and flat white
    Straight out of the bottle, no crazy color mixtures
    Turned out ok


    However, after looking at the pics, I'd suggest maybe Reefer Yellow instead of the UP armor Yellow

    I dunno, I think the UP armor Yellow looks spot on

    Re: Jango Paint Colours

    I think Phil is looking for a richer blue and yellow. Some misting as Fox advised should help, but I am thinking that the blue may need have a little royal in the mix to get the look he wants.

    I am airbrushing - so I can get it mixed just right.

    Rob - Foxbatkllr looks good mix, that why I thought the blue and yellow richer.

    Does anybody know if Jango had greeblies on his jet pack? If so where?
