    __________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ ___________________________



    Just started my own ESB Fett today. Im gonna try out trash can armor, and if I dont like it then there is our friend BM that I can get armor from.

    So far I am satisfied.

    The shoulder armor was painted for fun, just to see what it would look like







    First Ammo pouch 90% done

    Are there templates for the ammo belt pouches? And the boxes?

    More progress. Painting!


    Dent Details. For those who want to know how I made the dent, I just heated up the plastic until it is about to sag, and pressed it back, some parts of the plastic around the dent melted, but with a bit of sanding you can get it looking good again.





    Painted Chest Pieces. They are not done yet, as more weathering needs to be applied but they are very close.

    I believe that TK-409 has templates on his website for the ammo pouches.

    One problem I see with this is that the dents on the left chest armor are not that accurate. The bottom dent should be smaller, but I already painted it so I might not even fill it and "Re-Dent" it. We'll see.

    Final Update for today.

    The armor is almost done, with the exception of the Collar, Back, and shoulder armor.

    The belly was just finished up and has been weathered.

    Without flash (What it looks like normally)


    With Flash (Brightens up the armor that what it really is)

    I decided to re-do the paint job on this. I didnt have correct colors at the time and was messing around with different colors, darkening methods, etc. But hopefully some time this week Ill get around to painting these pieces.

    My first craptastic painjob, has turned into what I think a 90 percent accurate set of armor, in terms of damage placement, and scratch sizes. This will be redone again for a third time to see if I can get the proper colors.

    The yellow is too bright, the green is too off, and the weathering, is alright, but not that great. I would say this is better than my attempt before. This was all done topically, and I am absolutely satisfied with the way it turned out, since, I am not too good at topical paintjobs.

    I used hunter green by rustoleum, misted with a generic olive drab colored flat spray paint. I accidentally got that instead of Hunt Club green. I was following 7602s rattlecan thread and forgot which one it was exactly.

    Nice job on the armour painting, but I hate to break it to you, that's actually the ROTJ weathering scheme

    I like the second attempt better bruv... but I must say that your topic title says ESB progress yet you seem to have opted for the ROTJ paint job?

    Thanks for the comment Ben.

    My technique wasnt all that great considering I lost the trigger on my airbrush, so I couldnt paint in the burn marks, and weathering with my AB. What I did was just grind graphite powder and use my fingers to just rub it in there to add the burn marks. Problem there is that when I add the clear coat, it soaks up most of the thinner layers of weathering, making it look plain.


    Off to home depot for some proper rattlecan colors.
