    Need your help!

    Hello,

    Quick back ground info:
    Names Joey Eguia, Founder and current CO of OutPost Bolivia. I am in process of making a Boba Fett lid a a gift for a friend, and at the same time practicing for when i go to make my Fett.

    Actual Problem:
    Currently in Bolivia there is no paint/spray paint that even remotely comes close to either the airbrush type or the spray paint variente.

    after around a month of visiting, calling and e-mail paint places, i was suggested to try this one place "PINTECH" ( PINturaTECHnologia) (PaintTechnology) Theses guys are the largest paint company in my country. any way after email them with the list of both air bush and spray paint paints they told me that they will need samples of the paints, to run them throught espertrofotometer sp?? and see which of there paints macth the samples and make the ones that dont.

    Now granted i really dont need a sample of bright silver or chrome as theses are given..... but i was wondering if any of u guys would be able to send me samples of paints:

    Caboose
    PRR Maroon
    RLM 73
    up armor yellow
    mint green
    Panzer olive green
    PRR Green
    reefer gray
    base metal
    dull metal
    Concrete

    My idea was to get have u guys place a small sample ( nuff for them to scrape off and analyze) of theses paints on something (abs,old cd case, or i dont know.... etc....) and send this down here.

    this would be way to get the closest i can to the colors i need, i have also looked at having theses paint send down here and shipping not to mention that i need a licence to import paint ( yes i now messed up but thats my country....) was crazy. the small model painting paint is carzy $$$$$ here and i was only able to find the Panzer green....

    Any way if push come to shove i will use paint color as close as i can find.....

    But if any of u guy/gals could help me ot that would be awesome!!!!!!

    Thx in advanced
    Joey

    PS plz move this if its in the wrong place.

    could you just take a photo of fett and try to get them to color match from that?

    You could always just buy one of each paint from ebay, I know there are loads of sellers selling the Floquil paints on the bay and they´d probably ship to you as well.

    One of each of those would´t set you back too many $$ either.
