    I was thinking about maybe getting some bobamaker launchers, then i can finish the rest of the work on these before i put some paint down on them
    , he seem to have some nice sets at an affordable price & he's only across the water from Ireland so shipping is not too much.

    same as the rest of the knees ,PVC and some bond'o/ body filler
    very sturdy material , very hard to break but a little on the heavy side, not going to be a problem for me
    as this fett is planned for a display piece

    Thanks guys, i was a little doubtful about the paint job, i thought i over did it on the carbon scorching on the right knee, i've since buffed some
    of it out and it looks a bit better.
