On Lee's "updated" color list, he shows Floquil/Polly S POG Green. . . which I've seen in my local hobby shop, and it looks really good.
I think the actual name of the color is "PO Green." Can't remember right off the top of my head what PO stands for. . . it's the name of a railroad.

PO green, I knew that POG wasnt a color... hmm... well I searched the color database for PO green as well and got nadda... so I am still in the dark here. This is needed also for the Stencil PDF so anyone who can get me the ACTUAL name as I would type it in at the testors website to order it or if its manufactured by another company let me know what the name of the company is so I can track it down.

Thanks TF, I will list that color as an option and most likely use that enamel on my TF bucket. ;)

Hey Justin...I have the old list on my PC at home...I will send it to ya....

But I think you can get away with a Mix, with the Panzer Green as your base...;)

I wouldnt think that was the POG green being that Panzer Olive isnt a railroad color and the left ear isnt the same color as the dome and lower cheeks.

I believe it is Panzer Olivgrun 1943 in the Model Masters II Enamels line, Panzer Olive Green in the PollyScale Military Acrylics.

I would check with Lee on which is the best. I think he said go acrylic though.

I'm making a run by the hobby shop in a bit. I'll check it out again, but I'm pretty sure it's in the railroad line and not the military line. *shrug*
Actually I have been known to make mistakes. . . from time to time. ;)

IMO the left ear is much closer in color to the ROTJ cape. I found what I thought to be a very close color acrylic, in a craft store. I'd be happy to share the color once I get home to verify what it is called. Some kind of olive green though

Back from the hobby shop. . . OK, maybe my joking about needing glasses isn't too far off the mark! :facepalm
The Floquil color I saw the other day wasn't PO Green, it was DO Green (Depot Olive Green.)
Sorry bout that! Still looked like a nice left ear color though.

In the pics that I have seen the left ear is a different color than the dome. I used Rustoleum Sage for the dome and cheeks and then the POG for the ear. I know I am just a newbie, but IMHO it seemed to look a little closer to the ref photos I saw. If you are using POG for the rest of the helmet you might try mixing in a little bit of orange to get the right tint.

I found the Model Masters Panzer OlivGrun 1943 Acrylic at a hobby store. They sell a lot of military models there as well as trains. I did not find any POG color at the train stores I went to or on the Testor's site.

I use Krylon 'Italian Olive'. It's a satin spray paint so you have to dull coat it, but to me it looks pretty dead on. Plus it's readily available at Walmart.
