Godaiking's ESB Fett statue build

    Godaiking's ESB Fett statue build

    Decided I'll keep all the progress of builds in this thread. Some of you may have seen my helmet. I'm now working on the armor. Here's a few progress pics:







    Plan on using this almost strictly as a statue display.

    Just wondering what everyone thinks of the armor color (compared to the helmet)?

    Here's some clearer pics of the helmet:

    Thanks! Your templates were alot of help although I painted the marks a little different on the armor.

    That is a sweet helmet paint job. Very nice. The armor color looks great as well.

    Thanks for the kind words, guys. All the paints are custom mixed by me. I did a layer effect with the damage and painted everything by hand. The dirty look was accomplish with an airbrush.



    Here's some pics of my jumpsuit (sewn by Ladysewforus...is she still around?) and batninja vest. I dyed the jumpsuit a bit more.

    Not too dark on the jumpsuit color is it? Should I darken the bottom of the suit more?

    Looks great! I think the jumpsuit is OK... just make sure you weather the vest now.

    Yep, I'll get to the vest eventually.

    Here's some pics of everything on the mannequin I'm using. Still need to tweak out the mannequin (especially the left arm). He looks pretty nice next to my Vader and Stormtrooper.

    Nice going on this! Boba must have pissed off Vader--he took both of Boba's hands!

    Sorry bout that! Man, I've been so airheaded lately. Anyhow, it's a JB ESB V2 helmet. Really nice fan made helmet. I also have a TM helmet but haven't started on that yet.

    Re: Godaiking's ESB Fett statue build

    haha no worries...Ah the JB...nice. Looks great on that build. I was a Vader guy before Fett, but then switched over to Fett cuz im not tall enough to pull off a good Vader. I will however, eventually, do what you have done here and build one for display. Vader and Fett were my faves a s a kid. Again, nice work man on all of em!

    Yeah, making the Vader statue took me years of finding just the right parts. I imagine that'll probably happen with Fett, but so far, I'm liking what I have with him.

    By the way, here's some more pics:





    Just threw the parts on real quick for the pic. Using Bobamaker's bolt system for the armor on the vest. Getting there slowly but surely.

    Re: Godaiking's ESB Fett statue build

    Minor update again: added lower abdomen armor plus other details.



    I really need to rebuild the shoulders and upper arms on this mannequin. Just noticed that the chest decal is on the small side, so I'm going to redo that (thanks to Rafalfett for the templates!)
