    Feb 3, 2014, 6:50 PM - Heatshock ROTJ Fett #1

    I have been a member here for several years, and by slow accumulation, I had gather the top of the top quality parts and commissions for an ROTJ Fett.

    After 5 years of patient accumulation, everything was finally coming together to put in for 501st clearance. I mean we were talking gorgeous gear and paint jobs. TF helmet, FPv3 armour, TF painted helmet and armour. Bobby Fett JP. 99 TACO belts. BM flight suit. etc

    But then, as usual in this hobby, more impt came up, and I had to let the whole lot go. It sold for a good price and a good lad, who troops it regularly and does the kit proud. But I had bits left over the years which I had gathered which were, well.... less than perfect parts.

    Over the years, fortunately I had gathered some of the skills by osmosis and thought, hmmmm.... I have left over parts. Sure they need work, but I am sure I can turn out a 1/2 decent costume. Maybe not 100% perfect. but mine.... so here is the journey....

    (1) incomplete armour from old Rimshot run years ago, before he went bad

    (2) really rough gaunts on UK ebay - lots on here have used em in the past. should have known better, but I couldnt in good conscious sell these on to another costumer

    (3) partial JP I had got in trade months back

    helped from my very good friend Mr Bungle with some of his scratch built details

    DELETE!!! Sorry...wrong forum...

    WOW this is some throw back stuff kinda cool huh...looks pretty good.
    My only gripe would be the upper cheeks are not black on ROTJ, not sure if its the pics or not though.

    its a weird greeny black. almost like a very dark grey is green in it when white light is shone on it direct.
    probably a little darker than TFs in his pics
    I used TF's colour mix for ROTJ from a while back - not sure how accurate that is any more though (havent really researched a fett for over a year now?)

    Again- the toggle switches on the right gauntlet! Where is the reference picture for those two switches? I can't find them in a ref pic...

    I went by this - although when you click on the image for the right gaunt - there is no visible switch on it

    see post #14 here - which kinda hints at switches on the AOSW version -
