    OK...filling in the dent....

    I am going to get it green tomorrow.....man what I will do for Jeremy

    Bummer... but going to be much better I think! I was going to do the same DM, but at least I haven't gone green yet?

    JB's gonna love it... doing great stuff!

    Uhm, Jason? You did remove the paint "IN" the dent first before filling, didn't you ?

    *Sigh* I just can't please everyone

    I think from this point forward, the backplate will be "Dentless" It's much cleaner looking to "add" a dent, rather than fill.

    Hey come on FP... you know your work kicks butt, I think you can be forgiven for a little dent...
    Given the amount of people on this board with their own way of perceiving things... you'd be hard pushed to please 'everyone'

    I personally think the back plate is fine the way it is...gives it Character..

    As a matter of fact, with the help of a close friend of the project, we were able to get our hands on some production photos of Fett ESB shots that no one has ever seen before.........These pictures will be released, just not sure when.??... But after reviewing the extra shots I can tell you two things....FettPrides armor is EXTREMLY close in size and shape and dents etc etc... it's unreal how close he came!!!:thumbup......
    And heres the kicker, the little red shoulder stud that everyone sees in the hall way scene in ESB with Fett, Lando, and Vader, well in these new shots NO RED Shoulder Studs....Clear as day.....so I don't know what it is we are all seeing in that scene??...again I can post the shot in a few months once they have been released, "Hopefully"

    Great Work so far DM, and AWESOME armor FP...

    Cheers.

    Maybe it's red lighting off camera that gives the hue of red.

    Only other thing I could think of is that maybe for that scene, they put on a different set of studs?

    Have to agree with that. As many "parts" that Fett has, they could've changed them out. We all know that continuity is the most important thing when it comes to the Star Wars films.

    Or the backwards Fett in Jabba's palace.

    You could give Jeremy an extra "red" one to change out if he see fit.

    Perfect, we're using correct press keys anyway, so that shouldn't be no problem.. we have plenty of those..good call.

    I know it's no big deal guys

    But in the interest of wanting this to be absolutely PERFECT for Jeremy, Jason and i have decided to replace the backplate with a "Dentless" copy

    Spidey - thanks soo much for that !!! A little vindication goes a long way In all seriousness tho, I can't even describe how good it feels to know that the many hundred hours of eye strain and "do-overs" paid off big time on the new armor !!!

    As far as the shoulder stud goes .. I think the pic that Jason posted shows what I've been theorizing. I believe that the red light was *added* , much like a laser blast, or lightsaber glow is added to the film in any particular fx scene. You can see in that pic, as with any "still" of a laser blast, or like the SE shot of "han Shooting first" .. it just looks FAKE Nevertheless .... it is, uh,how do they say ....


    SCREEN ACCURATE !!!

    You guys could have negative decals made and use them as stencils for airbrushing.

    I took a screencap of the cod when Jeremy had the belts a little mixed up, you can see the upper damage.
