Godaiking's ESB Fett statue build

    Re: Godaiking's ESB Fett statue build

    Thanks guys! I changed the emblem on the chest and resized it. Positioning is a bit off from the screen used, but oh well.





    He looks pretty goofy with those droopy sleeves. Going to start work on the mannequin arms and hands and then the gaunts soon.

    One of the better display sets around. Fett will be no exception. Great attention to detail!

    Who did the gloves on that Vader! Great looking man!

    Been awhile since I worked on Fett, but finally getting my parts in from Mojo Fett has motivated me to start working again.

    Here's a pic of what I have so far. My fett is still on stumpy status with the lack of hands. Still need to bulk the mannequin up here and there, repostion arms, among other things.



    Does anyone know where to get nice Jetpack hooks nowadays?

    Took a break on Fett for awhile, but I've been spending the last week working on him again. Here's what I have done:





    Still not finished fine tuning the mannequin. Also, I'm about to get a ammo belt and girth belt from my friend and pouches from Batninja. Hopefully I can dye them to a similiar color I got the suit in. Plan on getting MOW's jetpack soon too.

    Anyone have any advice about getting jetpack hooks?

    Just got my belt today from my friend. Looks dark in this pic but it's not that really dark in person.

    I guess maybe I'll have to go that route as I don't see anyone here offering them. Oh well..

    Well, shark fishing would explain the missing hands...

    Seriously though, the belt looks great. Everything looks fantastic. Please keep the updates coming.

    Great display! The different sizes look spot on!

    Re: Godaiking's ESB Fett statue build

    It's not very often you see a display where all the build ups have such accurate detail, hope to be where you are within the next couple of years, looks amazing

    love this build, the armor colors are very well done. Did you make mods to the mannequin arms to style that pose?

    The chest pieces should be closer to the collar IMO....VERY SWEET SUIT!!! (can I move into your basement?)

    Still a work in progress, so I'll go back and correct that amongst other things. At this point, I'm just throwing the parts I have together. Here's what I've got so far:







    I need to change the wires in the left hand as they are a bit too stiff. Also, I'll adjust the right wrist a bit. Still working on this!

    Spectacular. The hands look great. I like the brown stripe on the glove as well. You don't see that too often. Keep these updates coming!!

    It looks amazing. What green did you use on the armor?

    Thanks! All of the paint on the Fett is custom mixed by me. Here's another small update. Added gauntlet hose and hose connector.

    Re: Godaiking's ESB Fett statue build

    Here's a pic I messed around with on Photoshop. Can't wait to get him finished!



    As you can see, I need to raise the right wrist up more (among other things!)

    Re: Godaiking's ESB Fett statue build

    Been awhile since I posted here. Got the Star Wars bug and started working on my statue again. Here's some latest pics:



    Still got a ways to go. Currently working on the left knee armor. Will start on the jetpack soon.

    Just added the left knee armor:



    Next up: I'll probably work on the side pouches by having them securely/permanantly attached to the ammo belt.

    Still have alot of things to fix and mount, etc.
