    JB project / FP V3 armor

    As most of you know TDH will be presenting Jeremy Bulloch with his very own ESB Fett Costume. I am very excited to have the opportunity to paint Mr. Bulloch's armor.

    I want to thank BATNINJA for doing all the trim work on this armor. He did a excellent job!!:thumbup:thumbup

    So far I have done the primer and the silver

    This will be a little slower than normal due to the fact I am painting 3 sets of armor at the same time...JB's, mine and Philip Wise.

    Let the games begin!!

    Awesome!!

    what silver are you using? Also, are you sanding down the plastic first?

    Batninja sanded the plastic after he trimmed the armor

    The silver I am using is Krylon Metallic from Hobby Lobby....Spideyfett suggested this for me.

    Thank you.

    Yep - that's what I use. Just wanted to make sure I'm using the same thing the masters are using.

    I hear the drum roll ...

    Can't wait to see this Jason! So, being that you put down a silver layer, are you going full layered with this? Or topical after this step? Just curious.

    The trim-up looks fabulous Eric !

    Dang ... that a lot of work! The progress in the pictures looks pretty good so far. Keep posting them ... I'd definitely like to see how this turns out.

    That looks really great so far. I'm going to be watching this post like a hawk as I'm hoping it will help me out when it comes time to do my ESB FP V3 armour. I know you listed the silver as Krylon Metallic, but is there any chance you could list what other colours you're using as well? This would be a huge help for me.

    Keep up the great work!

    update....

    I have been working on masking off the silver and this part is a slow process

    I have outlined the silver with a light pencil and then applied masking fluid

    Hopefully I will be able to get the GREEN on this weekend....
