    I am painting my mixmaster and the color I choose now is the color i will have to use for everything. Now I dont want Hulk hard green colors or army like colors. So I decided on Duck Egg green. (what is in a name... Imagine Bruticus asking Devastator what color he is "It is duck shell green, it's sooo 2009")

    But what do you guys think? Nice choice? It has a sort of weathered look to it, I think.

    As for the drum I keep it this gray or a light brown.

    It's kinda hard to tell. Maybe its the lighting in the photo but it looks very pale.

    You may want to darken it just a bit. Not too much, but enough so that from a distance it looks green (I originally thought they were grey until I looked closer). Still, it's a good idea and different from the usual!

    I meant SUN aged indeed. Thanks, I will do some blending on styrene to see of I should go darker. I am starting to like it more and more though
