Thanks for that.

Yeah, thinking using the off white similar to boba fetts flak jacket. Not sure how I'll get the flight suit that colour. It's so tough deciding lol

I'll do a few more concepts tonight. Get your thoughts. I want to get it right.

Best bet with the flight suit I'd to buy a pair of dickies long sleeve white coveralls and dye them. Just make sure they are 100% cotton. Synthetic fibers are a pain in the shebs.

Its the classic 1/2 inch off the sides, somehow its the same for most  :-\

Personal choice is the green, but needs a second and third color to break it up more, cos right now looks very plain, overwhelming black and while like the other 2 are hard to look weathered without a feux primer level to bring it off the metal .

but as I said, personal choice

What Kelborn said.  Shrink the collar to about 85% of it's current size.

I say green... not that I'm biased.

How about of I made the flight suit olive green, Brown vest, forest green plates?

I am swaying more towards black now tho ha ha. What's Feux primer?

Will take 1/2in off the sides tomorrow. Also I'd probably add stripes and decals of some sort to the plates too.

Sorry, spelling mistake: Faux primer
Faux primer is a false primer layer on the silver metal and under your main base color to differentiate the 2 when close match.
EG: primer(to make paint stick), silver (to make look like metal), Faux  primer (white- as metal would be primed before paint), red (base paint color), Details color- black and Green (for lack of other choice)

Ah ok. That kind of layered weathering was what I was planning to do anyhow. Thanks.

It's funny, all you guys are saying green, but friends are all saying black and Orange...

Ok. Gonna go down the green route. I'm gonna tweak the design when I get home tonight. Might use a ghillie net as my cape, similar to below. Will change the flight suit to olive green. Brown vest, forest green plates and then see how that looks.

Either or , I'm open to suggestions on that. I'd be doing a back plate either way.

Also toying with an arctic theme, some one suggested on my IG account.

If your doing a back plate, have a side/ half cape, more Boba Fett and doesn't cover paintwork you'll be putting time and effort into for the back plate ;)
