    Painting Armor in MR ESB LE Helmet style

    I'm looking to repaint my armor to match my MR ESB LE Helmet in style Reference image here..

    I spay painted the armor the first time around and then hand painted it for detail. It looks like I will have to hand paint the entire armor to match the painting scheme of the MR ESB LE helmet.

    Does anyone have a good technique I could follow to copy the MR ESB LE helmet scheme? If there is already a thread about this I apologize and would greatly a link to it.

    Thanks so much!

    I'm not understanding your question?
    You have the MR Boba lid and want to paint your armour ESB style?

    Exactly Mojo. But, want to make sure that my technique of painting will ensure that it matches the paint-job on the MR boba fett lid. HAs anyone done a thread on this yet?

    Just apply the tutorial to your armor.

    I see what you're saying, just remember that the MR paintjob is a factory paintjob i.e. not done by hand, so you'll never get 'exactly' the same look, just paint up your armour using the suggested colours or whatever you feel happy with, you can always weather your MR lid a little more to match

    Gator, there are several threads of armour paint-ups including one by me? If you do a search then you will see how others have painted theirs using layering techniques and some topical.
    As Joe said the finish on the MR is factory.

    My advice is look at the threads and determine your technique that you feel more comfortable with.

    OH and look at plenty of ref...
    Let me know if I can be of further help
