    NIIIIIIIIICE WORK MAN !

    K, so, since I'm bound to a TON of project wait lists until, oh, say when I DIE, how's about I contract you to paint the updates for my boy! (my manny that is) Cuz I'll never be able to reap the upgrade bennies of my own stuff if I don't find someone else to do it I'll be stuck in 4 yrs past, whilst everyone else goes "What's up with Fettpride's display?"



    Again, great worl man, seriously ! Are those Lee's colors? Perhaps it's the camera, but the yellow around the damage looks a bit too mustard?

    Re: FP armor progress pics

    thanks buddy

    let me know if you want to come over this week and see it in person

    I need you to look at my yellow on the armor and tell me if it needs to be changed

    FP pointed out it may be a little off...the flash made it a little brighter on the pics but FP may still be right on this. i have a feeling I am going to have to change it

    Re: FP armor progress pics

    I am currently working on the shoulders..the biggest problem I am having is finding good pics of the left shoulder. I have the ref CD but it seems most of the pics the shoulder is covered up with the cape. if anybody has a good pic AOSW version I would love to see it

    anyway..please note these pics are not of finished product

    I am about 80% done with left shoulder

    collar is finished

    Re: FP armor progress pics

    yep...everything topical

    I decided that on my new Fett I would paint everything myself and do it 100% topical

    I am still going to keep my MS bucket painted helmet by MS himself but I am also going to do a MS3 painted by me 100% topical

    I have found that topical is so much easier than anything else I have done before and to be honest its coming out much better than I could have ever dreamed

    Re: FP armor progress pics

    Topical is a nice way to go, you have a lot of control and if done right, you cant tell its not topical.

    Cant wait to see the new pad DM!!!

    Re: FP armor progress pics

    Only 8 hrs? LOL! That great work in 8 hrs.
    It took me way more than that and I am no where close to you. I am even using yours as a reference.

    Still looking fantastic DM.

    Outstanding as usual bro!! What color is the silver? I am using Testors chrome silver. Once you wash it, it dulls it just enough.
