    It looks great. What green did you use on the armor? (if you don't mind me asking)
    Ask away, my friend. I used Spruce green, then a series of dirty washes, then misted with black. The center diamond is just Hunt Club Green.

    Arms and gauntlet test fitting. I need to play around with the positioning and what not, and the gauntlets still need a ton of work, but this is the basic idea.

    Man, I bought the same hands and they were no good! Now I know what to do with them. Thank you!

    Slowly coming along. I had to cut off the entire right shoulder and reposition the arm, but I think I'm getting there. The arms kind of sag under the weight of the blaster, but I should be able to fix that later.

    Thanks guys. I think the arms are pretty much finished. I used 1" pvc fittings and a short length of pipe to attach them to the mannequin. This way they can come off If I want to remove the vest or flightsuit and they can swivel if I want to change the position. I'm pretty happy with it, what do you guys think?

    I was able to reposition the right arm again and get him to hold the blaster a little better. This thing just looks so much cooler now, like an actual person. This is still very much a work in progress, and there is a lot more work to be done. Thanks for the encouragement, guys.

    I can't get over how natural and lifelike this is. It really does look like Jeremy Bulloch is standing in your living room.

    Re: Matty's ESB Display Build Thread

    Thank you so much guys. I'm really glad you guys think it's cool. The whole idea was to make it look less like a costume on a mannequin, and more like Boba Fett just hanging out in my basement. So I think I'm on the right track. The arms were kind of a pain to get positioned right, but I think they're good now.

    I got a little more painting done on the gauntlet accessories.

    Definitely need to show how you build the wooden framework of the mannequin, I've been looking for a mannequin for months for my Fett but I've been scared of them not being too strong. Besides, I don't want my Fett to be in a 'fantastic' pose as if he's modelling! This is a great thread for a mannequin too!

    Thanks guys. The mannequin is actually just solid foam, no wooden structure. I did stick wooden dowels through the legs and torso for extra support though.
