    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.

    Re: Darthmillers FP V3 armor

    do you mist it with black after you add zinc chromate or before?

    First off great paint and assembly!

    I have a question, are the 2 bolts (for the knee darts) glued into the resin support..

    I have to do my knees as well but i'm a bit confused as to how you did it.
    i know there are pics but for the life of me i don't get it.
    thx in advance.

    Awesome armor Jason!!! Your a talented painter.

    Cant wait to see your costume in person in April.

    Re: Darthmillers FP V3 armor

    Jason, that is just awesome my friend. Officially one of the BEST ! The proportions on the armor look perfect. Unbelievable how "right" it looks now.

    My only nit pick ....

    Pull some slack up in his "crotch" area, and put your FPH on that bad boy !! (Not that your paint work on the MSH2 is anything short of fantastic !!!) I'm just dying to see all the new components together at last !!!!

    Congrats man !!!
