    Fett Project Finally started

    Hi Folks,

    i finally got round to making a start on my Fett project today and i started with the Shoulder bells to keep it simple.

    This was about the 3rd time i had used an air brush, it took me a while to get the finish to the way i wanted it but i am very surprised and pleased with the way they have turned out .

    Here are the pics below, any comments are welcomed as usual.

    Re: Fett Project Finally started

    well folks,

    I have been busy for the past 2 days working on my chest pieces and I am pleased things are working out for me for a change :wink: , while this is not as difficult as I first thought there is still allot of work involved and quite alot of prep work to be done but I am enjoying it none the less.

    I rotated the armour plates as one was drying I started on another to help things along but I started off with the base coat of tamiya chrome silver, I did 3 thin layers so not to mess it up one this was dry I marked out the battle damaged areas with a light pencil using reference from the Boba fett reference CD that I have and combined with pics that I took at AOSW in Edinburgh and other pics I then applied the liquid masking fluid to the areas marked out.

    I then sprayed the second coat of paint on which was Americana Yellow Ochre from Hobby craft again I did 3 thin layers to build it up letting each layer dry before starting again.

    once the second layer was dry I applied more masking fluid around the area's where I had masked before but allowing for small area's around the first layer so as to allow the yellow ochre so be seen round the silver base coat.

    then the last layers were applied which was more thin layers of Tamiya field Grey which is in fact a dark green lol ( go figure) .

    All that remains to be done is the layer of dirt to be added then I will need to lacquer them to protect it.

    here is the end result and about a day and half's work.



    Comments and criticism are always welcome.

    amazing!! looks great!!

    only tip I have is to dirty them up, but you allready said you were gonna do that.

    Something that works really nice aswell is not to just spray dirty colors on it, but wash it up with a few tints of different greens aswell

    **update**

    Ok i have weathered the chest plates , but i think i might have done too much ?? could the experts among you take a look and see if i have gone too far.

    If i have then its back to the drawing board again

    Re: Fett Project Finally started

    I'd give it a light grey wash to tone things down and make it look more like it didn't spend a day in a coal mine, It'd make it look somewhat corroded and like it has been around a while. I'd just water down acrylic paint and spray it on with an empty windex bottle and whipe it off. I hope I don't sound like I'm insulting your work, just giving my honest opinion.

    Re: Fett Project Finally started

    i don't think it's too over the top, but it could use something to even it out a bit.

    i did something similar on my knee armor. i ended up using latex masking fluid to re-mask the damage areas, then lightly re-sprayed the top coat... not much more than a mist. that evened out the weathering (or in my case the orange) and saved me having to repaint it all!
