I was looking through some old reference material and I came across these chestbox layouts.
Notice the positioning of the round greeblies from box to box as well as the square colors:

Biggs


Empire Strikes Back


Hobbie


Hoth


Luke (MOM exhibit)


Luke (Visual Dictionary)


Wedge (ROTJ)


Zev Senesca

I remember those from a few years ago.

I'm doing my chest box kit in the style of Luke from the MoM exhibit.

I'd almost do the Zev or the ESB version.... but then again, I am quite partial to the color green!

You're such a Corellian, Bill. lol

I like the "classic" look.

I've already painted my toggle switches, and used my leather hole punch to make the red dots out of red reflective tape. Those should look interesting in flash photos.

A lot of people buy chest boxes that are already made.

I don't know what color other people use on their kits, but I like the look of Rustoleum's Smoke Gray gloss enamel, it's kind of a darkish gray. The number for it is 7786.
