Title: Armor WIP
Post by: Roundtop_98 on Aug 24, 2020, 04:32 AM
I wanted to provide my updated color scheme, but didn't want to resurrect my old post, so here it is as I will be building it.  I am building a pilot, I have a Kick the Bucket buy'ce with his pilot brow and ears, here's a link to my helmet WIP: http://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/index.php?topic=192415.0.  I have my flight suit and flak jacket: http://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/index.php?topic=192772.0.  I will be continuing my armor build in the second link once I have the materials to do so.  My current build coloring will be as follows:

Does anyone have any thoughts on changes?

What type of gray/black are you using for the armor? A little hard to tell in this, but I like the idea of a green with charcoal gray/black armor.

I was aiming for grey, but I haven't decided on the shade.  I need to make a hardware store and Joanne run.  What do we think of Rustoleum Soft Iron for the gray parts, kind of a dark Dinn Djarin?  I'm also thinking an offset green racing stripe up the pilot brow transitioning into a centered stripe across the dome and down the back.

I opted for Rustoleum Metallic Flat Soft Iron with Rustoleum Camouflage Ultra Cover Khaki and Camouflage Army Green.  I had to order it off Amazon because my local Lowes doesn't carry the Camouflage spray paint and I should get it on Thursday, I'll update my helmet WIP when I get it painted up.
