    I did some searching and didn't see anything. Is there a set of comparable tamiya colors for empire strikes back armor? I saw someone use the XF-70 for the main armor and liked it. I am really looking colors for the knees/shoulders and gauntlets.

    I bought an airbrush recently and didn't know if it was worth the investment to paint with it vs buying the rattle cans I've used in the past. I look forward to any input!

    Not sure about the paints themselves BUT I will say having an airbrush is probably the best piece of equiptment you can have for these costumes. The paint selection for airbrushes alone have way more colors than any rattle cans ever will. They are easy to mix and dry super fast. It's worth the investment and time learning it. Plus destressing is super easy with one. (y)

    I appreciate it! I was looking yesterday and found a thread with lots of good colors. I am still looking a color for the gauntlets if you have a suggestion.
