    Hi all! It's been far too looooong since I posted any of my work here but I figured better late then never!

    As some of you might know I finished up Daz new ESB helmet a couple of months ago but I also got the job to paint up he's new armour. To be honest I found this quite exciting since I never painted a Boba armour before. Daz wanted me to match the armour to the ROTJ armour displayed at the AOSW exhibit. I did my best to get it as true to the original costume as I could. I still need to do the back, cod and collar but here's some pics of what's been finished so far. The colors used are the ones sugested by Lee, a big thanks goes out to Lynn for helpng me secure the ones I couldn't find here in Sweden. I hope you like it!














    UPDATED: 011107.

    Here's the last pieces, finished two days ago. I had to do some guessing on the weathering patterns on the back since I didn't have any ref pics which covered it.









    Thanks for looking,

    Steve.

    That armor is not good enough for Daz. You should try and paint him another set. Send this set to me and I will dispose of it properly. j/k That has got to be the best armor I have seen yet. How do you get the paint to look so smooth. Truely awesome

    awesome work, i always love seein your threads. Want to shed any light on how you did some of this. Is it layered or topical or mix. What did you used to get the black mark on the shoulder with the decal? Is the yellow on the chest the yellow zinc chromate, it looks more like the earth color in your pic but that could be just because of your washes.
