Are these the colors that are posted on the sticky? Can you give the color assortment when you get the chance to. It gonna be a sweet jet pack when its all said and done.

Colors so far:

rock Island maroon
Copen Blue
Up Armor Yellow

I am not 100% satisified with the Blue so I will be adding some dark shades to it with my airbrush

Just waiting for my MLC v2 to come in so good timing DM :)

Looking good so far... I agree that the blue needs to be a bit darker... Planning on keeping an eye on this thread...

Man, that's looking great!
The jet pack is the last 'large' component I still need to do, and I'm definitely going to keep this tutorial in mind.
Is the Copen (I'm assuming Copenhagen) Blue a Floquil/Polly S color?

DM - I think the blue is a great choice. :)

Keep in mind that your flash lightened it up a bit. The key as I'm sure you know, is weathering. Once you start applying your "dirt, grease and grime"
it will darken up nicely. When it's flashed, you will still see the lighter color underneath as you can see in the flash photos taken at MoM/AoSW. Based
on those pics, I think your choice is a good one.

Flashes never do anything good for color when taking armor and prop pics.

But its looking sweet!
