    Take a look at SEEKER's color scheme:



    This was in the Official Arena Jet Pack thread in the Jango Fett forum, I'm not busting your chops but look around a little, bub.......

    Hey All,

    This is probably a good time and place to mention that
    Rustoleum no longer makes Federal Blue. I called them
    about it after seaching all over town, and they said it
    was actually discontinued over a year ago! They also
    told me there was no replacement color for Federal Blue
    in their current product line.

    Does anyone out there know of any close substitutes?

    I found that out about the federal blue, too. But I found that American Accents (Rust-o-leum)Slate Blue in Satin looks close to me.

    I looked at the Rust-Oleum website:

    It's Royal Blue #v7727 and American Accents Heritage Slate Blue (satin finish) #7923.

    I finished painting the 3 colors on my JF arena jet pack last night. However I noticed that I'll redo the Royal Blue color because the paint came off from it. I've noticed that using Vasoline on the unpainted parts helps to protect the part that you don't want spray painted. And masking tape.
