    Thanks everyone. I started a thread in The Sarlacc Pit detailing how I made the base. And Deathproof, I agree about the light. I'll see what I can do.

    So I went a little crazy the other night and completely re-weathered my chest armor. It was kind of a gamble and it's kind of hard to see in pics, but it looks much cooler now. I got some more variation in the weathering, it's not so "flat" looking anymore. This pic isn't great but you can see what I'm talking about. It's actually more subtle looking in person.

    Amazing, truly amazing Matty Matt!

    It's information overload at the moment as I pull together my project plan, your build just wants me to go crazy with it now but more research is needed.

    Thanks for posting.

    Hey guys, check this out. Some "artist" has taken one of my photos and is trying to pass it off as original artwork. Prints are $40. Think I can get one for free? Lol.



    And my original photo from this thread.

    You're not the only one who have his work/photo re-used by others:



    Link here ==> Star Wars Locations and Places T-Shirts.

    He never asked for my permission, but hey, it's a free world and we all 'borrow' our work from Star Wars.

    Sorry for the hi-jack.

    $40 for a mosaic photoshop filter? He must be pretty famous to charge that

    Don't think there's much you can do aside from telling him it's yours and you request him to credit you or take it down. Lawyers for something like this would cost you more money and energy than it's worth.

    I'm not upset about it or anything and I certainly won't pursue it. I just thought you guys would get a kick out of how lame it is. I don't know anything about photoshop but I figured it just must be some kind of filter. Funny stuff.

    I guess I never posted these pics of the completed setup. The last thing I did were the shin tools. Came out pretty good I think. Still tweaking things here and there. It never really ends.

    If my build ends up looking half as good as your's does on that mannequin, I'll be happy as hell! The fit and placement of everything just looks right (that pose doesn't hurt either). The extra weathering that you did adds a lot of depth and I reference this thread almost every day, no joke!

    Thanks a lot brother. How far along are you on your build?

    I'm still gathering parts...forever gather parts...
    I have armor painted,cape dyed, and 2/3 braids braided. I'm so anxious to start the helmet painting. I'm sewing my flak vest and contemplating sewing my flight suit. I've created a duct tape mannequin, but can't really do anything on it until I get the soft parts figured!

    Dyed the cape a little darker. I think I like it.
