So i finally got around to assembling and painting my FP gauntlets. After much debate between accuracy and practicality, i decided to go with hinges and clips for the closing method. Although its not screen accurate, it does make it much simpler for trooping purposes. I based my ESB Fett on the ESB Promo shots and I always noticed the right gauntlet had more of a faded look to it, so i set out to replicate that look this time around. Basically, i just added some white into the Humbrol 78 until i thought it was close..actually a little lighter than i wanted, knowing it would dry a bit darker. I also misted it with a rust color and then gently wiped it down after it dried with 0000 steel wool. Then i matte clear coated it. I think i got it pretty close. So, My re-vamped Fett is almost ready to troop again!
