    Jun 5, 2008, 11:52 AM - Holiday Fett Chest and Bucket pics updated 6/18/08 #1

    As the title says, I making a HS Fett. The helmet is almost complete - sort of. The chest plate is almost done as well. I still need to weather it and add a bit more grit to it. The armor is from Richie's Armor and all in all, I like it. I've got a bit more sanding to do on the back and haven't started yet on gauntlets, knees and cod yet. But I'll keep you posted. Let me know what you think of the colors. I've seen some of the other HS Fetts and loved them but I wanted my colors to be a bit more intense. Critique is always welcome as this is my first attempt.

    I think it looks great!

    However... (and I hate to say this because it's silly) The inside edge of your plates should be straight, as (canonically) there is no diamond-shaped peice in the HS Fett.

    Good start though! Can't wait to see it done!

    Yeah, I knew there was no diamond in it but I'm not sure how to "reshape" the plate to fill that in.

    Here's another picture- I just added some weathering to the chest plates. Still needs to work it in a bit more so it looks more natural.

    Jodo, I could tell you whats in the back ground but I'd have to kill you then Actually its the plans for a prison I'm working on. Glad you like the armor thus far. I got a bit more done over the weekend. I have the rest of the armor - back plate, cod and kidney plate, and the shoulder bells primed and covered with base coats. Just for the record - I love Krylon Paint. It's almost impossible to mess up. And I also got the neck plate and back plate predrilled to attach around my neck. And on top of that I got my visor about 90% installed. I don't have any pictures yet but I'll get some tonight.

    Like I said though, this is my first set of armor so if there's any suggestions you can offer on the painting front or whatever, I'm all ears!

    Thanks

    Bounty Hunters don't mess around. It's a 230 bed prison so I've got a lot of work to do.







    These are a few progress pics of the rest of the gear. Still working at it!

    Heres some more pictures. I got the neck plate painted along with the shoulder bells. I had a vinyl decal of the skull for the shoulder but it wowuldn't stick so I hand painted one on. I really liked how it turned out. I know it's canon but the skull stays 8)

    Anyway, enjoy the pics!
