    Tips From The Pros: Flynn O'Connor
    The only color I use for that real Boba Fett green is Testor's Spray Model Paint "SAC Bomber Green," available in most model shops. Also don't use any actual "red" -- it looks too new. use burgundy colors for that right amount of "worn down."

Painting

    First off take the different Chest and Neck Pieces and paint them a solid Moss Green. This color is a good match to the helmet color of the Don Post Mask. Paint the Shoulder Pads Yellow. After those coats are dry you can start painting the details. The three main colors you will need are Flat Black, White, and Aluminum Silver. First you need to paint the White Mandalorian Supercommando Symbol in the Upper right corner of the right breast plate. Then you must paint the white box on the upper left corner of the left breast plate and the white line in the center of the center piece. The black is used for all the edges (LIGHTLY) and you can even use a rag to pull some of the black off to make it more worn... Black can also be used for some Carbon Scoring Effects... Spray the black into the dents and QUICKLY use an old brush to spread it out like a blaster mark. The silver should be sprayed directly on the brush and quickly and lightly brushed over the armor for the scratched worn in look... To age the armor further mist over it LIGHTLY with the black from about 4 feet away.

    The shoulder pads now just need to be painted with the Skull Symbol in red and a bit of black for a light border on the edges. Again a fine mist of black over it will give it that aged look. Silver scratches are also a must.
