The paint set includes the paint colours used by Steve Dymsczo in his BTMF painting tutorials:

http://www.model-space.c...m-falcon-paint-set.html

Tamiya insignia white aerosol x2, plus 1x pot of each 'XF' flat colour: White, Medium Blue, Yellow, Black, Neutral Grey, Red and Red Brown, plus a bottle of Tamiya acrylic paint thinners.

Make your Millennium Falcon even more authentic by using the Official Millennium Falcon paint set in conjunction with the Steve Dymszo Millennium Falcon painting tutorials.
The paints are designed to be used “as is”, but as we explain on page 13 of Issue 48, ILM used overlays of various shades and some mixing will be necessary to achieve exactly the same effect.
We will be printing full-size colour paint guides towards the end of the series – as well as the download reference photos.

Make your great looking Falcon even more amazing and paint your Falcon like a pro - See the Steve Dymsczo "Falcon painting" video tutorials parts 1-3:

Can you provide the paint codes for these.
I would assume for the black it would be X-1, Red would be X-7 but not sure.
Could you please update

Hey I saw the video of Steve Dymszo and I know the difference between a screen accurate paint job and a studio accurate paint job. For example, the Enterprise D hull plating from Star Trek looks like a light grey color on screen. But in reality the model is painted duck egg blue. If you paint your that way, it will elicit strange reaction from people asking, why did you paint it light blue when it is grey?

So, that said, the studio paint job for the Falcon looks to me like a pizza! I want mine, when I complete it, to look like it looks on screen. Are there any guides for this? I tried searching the posts, but could not find a simple paint scheme.

Thanks!

Hi Michael,

For the studio, it’s all about lighting, as colours look different under their intense lighting. I am also building the R2-D2 and although I did some research on the paint they used, R2 white was more cream and as mine is not in the studio, I settled with bright satin white.
Getting on to the Millennium Falcon, again I wanted the colour to be as near to the movie as possible. Here is a link to my custom build below

http://forum.model-space.co.uk/....aspx?g=topics&f=315

If you look at page 4 of the custom build, you will see I have posted a painting guide.

It is all personal preference when painting a model of this calabre, no wrongs or rights. It is how you want it to turn out and something you will be happy with.

It would be great to see how you tackle this and please post your work, I’m sure there will be plenty of people on here that would follow you through to the end.

Although I am the USA forum support here, I’m sure there will be many others willing to aid you.

If you need any other advise, let me know and good luck.

Mark

Thank you Mark! BTW I had to re register as Sysyphus as I missed the fact that email's are not allowed as usernames!
I just got the mail that the first 2 months of the kit will arrive in the next few weeks, so I will not have anything to paint until I get it all, I purchased the 12 month subscription option.

I will take a look at your guides and I am glad you did this as like I said, the studio color scheme is just too severe for the obvious reason as colors do get far more muted when filmed. I saw a video of Armin Shimerman in his Star Trek DS9 Quark makeup, and it looked really cartoony! I have also worked with Max, the actor who plays Nog on DS9, during Star Trek conventions, and they had to do a different color scheme for his makeup so it would look like the screen version in real life.

Thanks again and when I am ready to tackle the paint job, I will certainly ask for help :-)
