This ESB costume is going to be sick with accuracy!! I'm loving the updates and can hardly wait 'til you guys start to converge all the parts for final assembly. I only hope Jeremy realizes the gravity "his" costume will have, yet again
Hei! Other pic:
OK...here is the added silver on the cod piece
Perfect DM! Now... THE YELLOW And after you know [DarthVaderVoice]THE SHOULDERS AND KNEES MWAHAHAHAHA[/DarthVaderVoiceOff]
Hei! Updates? I like to see how this costume is done!
This is the best tutorial ever. What colors where used for the diamond....I believe you stated they were different.
"7. Chest Diamond: Yes it is a DIFFERENT color than the armor on ESB.... I used CNW GREEN (Polly Scale)"
says in the tutorial..
What colours will be used on the knee and shoulder armour?
All I can say is Wow...
When is the tutorial on how knee darts are installed, going to be posted?
OK...here is a step by step process on setting up the knees
I will leave it up to FP to do a seperate thread as he is the expert on these knees
below is the process I used
locate your resin pieces FP included in your kit and place them into the correct knee. I suggest maybe adding some tape to hold them in place while you do the work
hold resin piece in place while you drill your hole....MAKE SURE YOU USE A BORING DRILL BIT...AND MAKE SURE YOU HOLD THE RESIN PIECE IN PLACE....YOU WANT TO DRILL RIGHT THROUGH THE ARMOR INTO THE RESIN PIECE SO EVERYTHING LINES UP!!!
make sure darts fit in hole...also you may notice some clean up you can do to smooth any rough edges after you drill
just grab some sand paper and it will take care of any small issues from drilling the hole
use a Dremel and cut off the end the screw you are going to use
then drill a hole in your resin piece
after hole is drilled then JB weld the screw into place
attach darts to screws and make sure everything fits together
remove darts PAINT your knees
once knees are all painted up attach darts and then glue your resin piece into the knees to hold everything in place
and as you can see JB's knees are all set and ready to go!!!

Beautiful, I love it DM. Truly nice work going on here.

Eg, the Bells may show underside when worn, is it silver?
