ANH Paint colour guide

Recommended Posts

I was getting ready to paint the screws for my ears. I noticed I only have gloss white. Would this be acceptable to use? I have to run out and get semi gloss black for the TD screws. I only have gloss black.

Gloss white is perfectly fine for ear screws.

 

I've used gloss black on TD screws before, you can even touch the black while drying and it will take some shine off.

Are these the same colors for ESB? I know the frown is black and decals are used on tubes. I'm collecting my supplies I want to make sure I get the right ones

Thank you

Also, if you want to go EIB then you will need decals for traps and tears :salute:

For ANH Centurion level, are the Trooperbay decals acceptable or does everything need to be hand painted?

You want the Dave M decals from Trooperbay they look hand painted ;) 

 

Or use standard decals and draw over with a permanent marker, a little trick I came up with

I am about to paint my ANH helmet. Do you use the gloss black for the trap and tear details or the satin black like the vocoder?

Gloss on traps, tears and ears

I thought the vocoder was coal black satin?

Here's a vocoder on an original ANH helmet. Judge for yourself.
