    Jul 12, 2003, 2:42 PM - my new rotj chest armor #1

    Finally got the first piece of my Fett costume sorted, the vest and chest armor. For my first set of armor I think it looks awesome, what you can't see from the pics is that the armor also has a working chest display too.

    The metal blocks on the backplate are the pieces to hold the collar and back armor together properly as in the actual prop, I just need to trim the back armor and then screw it all together.


    Anyway here are a couple of pics:

    Chest armor and vest


    back armor and bolts

    Its actually RA armor and its awesome. By the way do both the pics work for you as I cant get the chest armor pic to work.

    One of my friends got the little metal blocks machined for me.

    Paul,

    Nice looking armour mate!

    Great colour, too. Do you mind sharing the name of the main green colour and where you got it?

    Can't believe someone in the UK has found a good RotJ Armour colour.

    Nice going!

    Si

    Ditto on what Han Hunter said, the UK is a nightmare for Fett paints.
    C'mon matey share your secrets

    unfortunately guys, i didnt paint this. RA did it, and a bloody good job they did too. i recieved my cod armor today and its equally as good.

    i am trying to track down some of the main green colour though, and if/when i do find it i will let everyone know, especially the UK guys. i agree the UK is a nitemare for sourcing the paints.
