    For those that are confused, Boba's flight suit should be blue. Apparently they made some other movie which featured a purported grey suit??? Wouldn't know.

ID:	83763 Still tweaking the weathering on this. I hate the look of a clean Fett outfit, so welcome to feedback on what else I should do on this.
    A little driveway dust, some black primer, little more driveway dust.


    Armor pics- This is Chris's newest version, the FPA ( Fettpride armor) ESB version. Great quality stuff here, and painted by the best looking guy on TDH, 22ssplt.
    Really like the look of where this is going, although its taken me a year to get to this point, and I've had enough stuff here to do WAY more work on this.
    Have to spend a little more time in reality unfortunately, but meh, as long as it gets done before 2020......Apologies for the cruddy cell phone pics,

    Looking great, Sean.

    Hey, that grey suit is actually a faded ESB suit you know. So all us ROTJ guys have a little ESB in us

    Right now, it looks like you've centralized your weathering on pockets and seams. I would go darker, and spread the love a bit more. Have fun with it - roll around, get it dirty. You can always clean away areas you don't like if you use mild materials. Keep layering, and use different shades of colour.

    Thanks Aaron! I'll give it another go when it quits raining down in the ATL. It's been the wettest holiday season I can remember.
    its got a light mist of black primer everywhere, but it is heaviest at those exposed areas. As has been said before though, if it looks too clean in the picture, it needs more dirt.....

ID:	83780 Ready to get some paint going on with these. As soon as I stop spending on more parts I GOTTA get an airbrush set up to get the paint on these gauntlets.
    If I trim the visor out of the helmet but leave a little piece at the bottom will it be ok being stored until painted and the visor is attached?

    Try it like this....by far the best way I've found. Fp trimmed it before he sent it over and it was the tightest closest fitting visor I've ever installed after paint.
