Managed to get some picks of the Hoth pack whilst I was at galaxy's edge. Shouldn't be too much of an issue. Also the long sleeve t-shirt. I'm assuming it's stone/grey in colour?ImageImageImage

We normally say tan for the shirt but stone, desert or beige should do as long as it's not too brown or yellow. Primark used to do great cheap ones but I've not seen them for a while.
Happiness is a warm A280. Or A300. Even a Glie-44 at a pinch.

Dylon Sandy Beige is the best colour I've used, bung a pod of it in the machine and dye all the whites at once. Pebble Beige looks to brown to me.

So I've amassed this much so far. I have the spray paint (All 5 colours) ready to go onto the trousers (which have had buttons removed). I also have the dye for my long sleeve T-shirt (stone) and will need to remove the branding on the glove back (plus weather). The vest, rank greeblies, ribbed hat top/peak and gators all in the postal system at various stages so those will also arrive any day now. Just waiting on donut from Ross at RWA and sorting bandolier and greeblies too. Getting there :)Image

Hose, etc for the pack in hand? There are a couple of greebs that can go on the pack that I think I've 3d models to print from. Same for the wrist comm and bandolier amusements.

All looks good so far. Then the spraying fun starts. Always bear in mind little steps at a time doing that. That duster pic from earlier shows a nice example of the basil being the main colour, then moss in slightly less area, then an occasional splatter of hunter and holiday (strange colour) green with the odd bit of lime here and there.

Cool, thanks mate. I'm going to try and spray them this weekend but will have a go on an old bed sheet first. I'll keep you updated ASAP.
