    Where do you get the vac-formed knee pieces?

    I am making a set - not in this manner - that I am just not too thrilled with...
    SB,
    There's a member here who does vacc'ed armor sets. He's had some health problems lately and he's kind of hard to get hold of, so it's hard to say whether he's still in the armor-making biz.
    He does tremendous work, though, and I feel really lucky that someone else was selling theirs.

    Outstanding job Superjedi, right down to the correct red and black rings on the left darts. Love your detailed weathering technique of using the pastel powders and the charcoal pencil. Outstanding bro, FP would be proud.

    I love weathering! It's one of my favorite things about the whole 'look' of the Star Wars universe. . . it's dirty!

    Can you imagine Boba Fett's (hypothetical) mom sending him out to play?

    but, but ??!! awwwww Mom, cmon we wanted to play kick the Ewok again



    Ya painting is fun but it's deffinatly the finer details that you come up with along the way that really make your suit "your own". I mean even with you sharing this, 10 of us could have FP knees, use the same exact methods, paints, blahblahblah and still everyones will look personalized and unique.

    It deffinatly adds to that Pride factor when your wearing it that you know you've created something special.

    Again, great job bro. I love seeing progress threads like this.
