    And... in what pic you can see the dent on the backplate? (up-right), I saw a lot of pics but I can't find any pic with it

    Thanks and really good job.

    It appears the EBS Boba doesn't even have that dent.

    No it certainly does not appear that way does it

    In the grand scheme of things, with so little reference on the ESB Fett, something that obscure wasn't worth the extra expense for making a second mold that LARGE (backplate mold that is). The mold was designed off of the couple of very tiny pictures that we do have of the whole backplate, and it was PrePro / ROTJ SE).

    I figured the "ESB Purist" could fill in if it really bugged them. Sorry I forgot all about that Jason ! But the saving grace is ... it is that obscure. It really is a very minor difference that isn't worth losing any sleep over now that it is painted (if you don't want to fill it this late in the game that is )

    Sill looking amazing Jason !

    in the pic I was looking at the silver at the top near the collar.....if you noticed it appears to have a large silver area and so I added this to the armor

    As far as the dent I did see that the pics dont have the dent but the FP armor did and I made the artistic decision to go ahead with it.

    One thing to note is that Spideyfett is the guy that pretty much signs off on my work. We will look at this together and we may decide to remove that dent. Its a easy fix if we decide to do it.

    I would venture to guess that even if you just decided not to paint that dent in and leave it green it would not be that noticeable anyway. Much easier than having to fill it in.
