Could someone please post the proper/accurate paints required to paint ROTJ armor (metallics, yellows, greens, maroon, etc).

Um. . . not to be a wise-acre, but all that info is in Mr. Fett's first post.
afettfullofdollars recently got a new set of armor and will be experimenting with it to find a set of colors for the airbrush challenged, like me. be patient, i have faith that he'll have the list up by june.
He refers to all of the paints listed as "airbrush paints" in the first paragraph (with the exception of the silver/metallic color...Are you saying that I should purchase airbrush paints to hand paint the silver and yellow chips???
They're not "airbrush paints," just regular paint applied with an airbrush.
The Floquil or Polly Scale paints can be brushed or sprayed on.
I think people sometimes don't take into account the different experience levels people have with things like painting.
There are a lot of different paint brands out there, and a lot of different methods of applying them.
For some more inexperienced painters, an airbrush has some kind of stigma attached, like it's something mystical and scary. It's true that using an airbrush is a little different than just popping the top off a spray can, but if you mess around with a simple little single action Testors or Badger airbrush (I use a single action Badger, myself) and get some practice, you'll find that it's pretty fun! The one I use was only $20.00 and I've been using it for close to 4 years.
It will certainly give you a lot more color options, instead of searching high and low for certain colors of spray paint.
