    Feb 2, 2008, 11:33 PM - Darthmillers FP V3 armor #1

    Well....I am working on my personal FP V3 armor at the same time I am doing the JB project. Its kinda fun doing an ESB for Jeremy the same time I am working on ROTJ for myself.

    anyway...here are a few pics....still have a long way to go on the weathering!!

    Looks awesome as usual. Do you add the "gun butt scratches" to your stuff?

    the secret on these is to use a Boring Bit to drill the hole

    I actually put the resin part in the knee to add support and then drilled with the boring bit right through the knee and then the resin piece

    here is a example of the drill bit I used

    Jason, that looks amazing ! You knocked it out pretty fast too. Pretty good recovery on replacing that much of your suit on a whim

    Of course, it's just to bad that version 4 is coming next run

    FP

































    ETERNALLY KIDDING !!!!

    Looking great DM Can you reveal your colors for the shoulder bells and knees? Such a hard base color to achieve, and it looks like you nailed it.
