A lot of people have asked Rodmart and me, trough PMs or emails, how we had achieved the painting job on the Revisited X-Wing prototypes we'd made; well, it was really a challenge, since our idea was to replicate the job done by the people at ILM in 1975-76.
First, we matched the PACTRA paint color, but it was too white for us so after a lot of research, Rodmart came up with the idea of painting the models with a base tone matte black first and then apply the PACTRA color, we think the result is really good and it looks pretty close to the original X-wings...
Here's a video with the process and some pics
