    Jan 4, 2008, 5:18 PM - JLuck's FP V.3 armor thread #1

    ok, what a way to start off the newyear

    lots of great fett goodies came along the last quarter of 2007 WOW!
    hope everyone has a great new year! ya im gonna babble on for a min.
    i havent posted squat in a long time, and untill recently i havent been physically able to do alot as far as fett and other prop stuff (alot of u no the story so..)

    neway, im not confident enough yet with the lack of a super steady hand to continue with my FPH, its ready for paint and that much detail is not something im ready for at this point. BUT for an update im doing somewhat better now. im atleast able to to work with my upperbody enought to build and all the prep to get these projects moving, unfortunatly i still have very liminted use of the lower half and i can only get around w/ a cane. (anyone make a palipitine cane BTW?? lol seriously)

    so that beind said im able to start my V.3 armor thread. FP did an awesome job i have to say, you can never cease to amaze us chris! THANKYOU

    i have all the parts except one roungh trimmed, and i have the shoulders and knees finish trimmed and ready to be primed up.

    in case someone wanted to see how some ppl are trimming the knees and what size 'lip" was left, i took a few shots of each, so thats y so many pics.
    i went with a very small lip on the contours of the knees as sugested by FP. i did the same with the shoulder bells, i also put a bevel on the edge of all the parts so when sanded it would have that thicker "rounded" appearence.


    more to come.............

    Awesome trim job Scott, that's definitely the way to do it Oh, and your replacement part went out yesterday

    Now, forgive me for my possible ignorance. But I'm not so sure that I have any idea what your talking about (your health)? What did I miss ?? You going to be ok? Please don't feel obligated to post it here, shoot me a PM or something. I just feel like a heal that I'm in the dark about something so major. Hope you're ok my brother !

    Very nice job at trimming! I like the lip you have on the armour! I need to thin down my suit in some places, especially on the abdomen, it's about half an inch! Great job again, and good luck to you!

    Cool! Looks like you're off to a great start. Nice clean pieces to work with, eh?

    I just have to ask. . . why is there a severed head in the background???
