    Nov 24, 2013, 10:03 AM - My FP gauntlets assembled & painted by DVH :) #1

    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!

    Thanks guys!

    The right gaunt looks a little greener in bright daylight (the right gaunt alone pic was taken in daylight) but the indoor "just a little daylight" comparison pic it looks dead on..which im guessing is about right since the promo shots were taken indoors obviously. Thanks for the compliments guys...i was a little scared to do it, since i actually already painted the gaunts..but i had this feeling i could match that faded dirty look...so i went for it lol

    Wow, attention to detail is fantastic,those gauntlets look great.

    I see shots like this and realize how far I have to go... one step at a time.
