Which Blue?

Recommended Posts

Since "Blue Sky" has been discontinued, what are the alternatives? I've seen "Lake Blue" mentioned, is there one that anyone can recommend?

Thanks,

HH

There's a sticky topic right above titled "Color Blue for backpack parts"

http://forum.mepd.net/index.php?showtopic=4987

I really like the Rustoleum Satin "Lake Blue" 241252 found at Home Depot, and I posted a few pictures of painted parts.

I'd swear that someone at Rustoelum is a Sandtrooper, because the color looks spot on for the movie! It looks a little more gray than the photos show. It's really a nice blend of blue and gray.

Does anyone have pictures of Humbrol 47 painted parts?

Hi bro.

I just hand brush paint the parts.

Use a big soft brush, you can´t see it was not spray painted on ;)
