Hello!

So I have recently brought some 3rd part extra parts for the x-wing model (Thank you Falcon 3D Parts.com!) and I am looking for paints that match the stock parts that come through with the build.

Please note - I am not looking for paints that match the original models, as they may be different to the stock parts (are they? does anyone know?)

Can anyone help?


Thank you,

Chris

Hi Chris

I don’t think it is any particular colour. When adding chipping effect I used a combination of white, off white and grey mixture.
Remember that the stock parts come pre weathered, so once you have a base colour matched up similar, once weathered it should look the same.

Thank you Mark.

Do you happen to know what the stock colour is?

Cheers
