Excellent color palatte choice! The subdued tones and flat finish are very appropriate for the costume.

Thanks, I know that it's been done and done and done, but I wanted to go for desert/slum urban while sticking with a 70s/80s color scheme.

The finishing on the thrusters looks great!


Thank you. I employed the same technique that i used on the missile and my boot armor. I masked the area, I painted the untercoat and, while it was still slightly tacky, applied the top coat. Before the top coat was completely dried, I then began rubbing the liquid latex of and dragging the under coat around through the spaces left from the removal of the latex. Let it dry and then black washed and wet sandeda couple times.
The thruster scorching is actually chalkboard spray paint ;)

On some weathering jobs the illusion falls apart close up. Yours just looks even better.

Bravo.

Can't believe that I missed this post! Great job I'll echo what the others have said, Nice work weathering and paint apps are excellent. I really like the combination of Area pack and the Z-6 side thrusters.

How are you attaching this? Can you share some photos of how you plan on mounting it?

Dang man, just starting my build. I can only hope when I get to my jet pack I can use your paint job as a tutorial pic. I weathered my Colonial Marine armor about the same way but it didn't have as many color layers and the darker colors were easier work with. I bet the thrusters were difficult to get just right.
