Armor Color


Recommended Posts

Straight from the CRL:

Yes Sir, matte black is an option, just make sure all the armor pieces are the same paint sheen, best of luck with your builds! Great to see couples enjoying the darker side of the Dark Side!

Special Notes:

  • The armor is gloss, semi-gloss, satin or matte black.
  • Armor is made from one of these (or similar) types of materials:
    • Fiberglass
    • ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene)
    • HIPS (High Impact Polystyrene).

I'm starting on two scouts now for my wife & I. 

Can the Shadow Scout be matte black, or does it have to be "shiny" ? If matte is an option, I wanted to paint before assembling all the parts.

Thanks for the info!

Good luck on your builds! I am using the Crayon Black from Rustolium and I just LOVE the way it looks. Might be something to look into. spacer.png

Love seeing spec ops in groups, and definite coolness vote for couples.

Completely agree with the team above, also, one nuance to note with matte versus gloss is that certain pieces need to contrast:

Upper Arm Armor

Armor has a recessed area with a contrasting black "T-bit" detail attached within.

 

Helmet
Scout style helmet accurate in shape and form.
Eye lens is black, dark green or silver mirrored.
Helmet is painted to match armor.
Flat or concave elevator bolts.
Helmet may have scout detailing or left plain.
If detailing is present, it is black.

OPTIONAL Level two certification (if applicable):
Ear holes are correctly shaped and have no mesh.
Black 3M Speedglas bolts or replicas are concave and mount the faceplate to the helmet. (Visible bolt head diameter of 22mm).
Accurate snout detail and aerator with accurate parts, mounted onto a plate and painted a contrasting black to the helmet.

 

Back Armor
The back armor has a center tank attached.
The top of the tank is flat with a detail piece painted black.
Top detail piece uses the same greeblies as seen on the screen-used ROTJ Biker Scout armor.
Top detail piece is painted matte black.
The tank has contrasting black stripe detail.
Optional: Additional "rank indicators" present on the right side of the tank, can number between 0 to 6 stripes.
