    I have added new stencils (using my own templates as a base) to my ROTJ armor stencil thread which is closer in form to the original armor (and RKD's too), so if you have the old ones, just download the new ones, which are located at the beginning of the first post. Can't wait to see the painted armor!

    I know progress is slow, family, work, and Army as well as working on my scratch build ODST has kept me pretty busy. I have started working on my knees and here is a paint test. I had an unfortunate experience with the line marker paint. when i sprayed it on, it came out clumpy and will need to be sanded and repainted again. Here is a pic before i started sanding. I sprayed some orange on top and did not remove all of the masking but you should get the idea. Please feel free to comment.

    Got some paint on the collar. I know it will all need to get more weathering and some highlights here and there. Thoughts before I go to far down this path?

    If you are using IOA gauntlet do you "need" to fiberglass the inside? They are very strong as it is and I only did that to add strength to my resin ones (MOW).

    I want to fiberglass the inside to make it more rigid for the hinge. I imagine it is not necessary but since they are only .060 hips, the added strength would make me feel more comfortable that they will last longer.

    Thank you. Any suggestions on an orange i can use with airbrush to darken the knees up a little? I have been digging, but if someone knows and can answer, it will save me some time.

    Oh yea, of course. I am working in phases. getting paint layered up then once i have it all painted up, i will begin the topical weathering to really give it character. I just hope i get the scratches as accurate as I am able.

    Quick update. Next one will have the majority of armor done with paint layering and ready for the 2 stickers, chest light cut out, and then grime and a final matte coat. Then the gauntlets.

    I've heard a lot of people use the term 'grime.'

    Lame question - but what are you using? Grease? Oil? Dirt? Or just painted 'grimey' colours?

    I use flat black spray and just mist it on.

    Jul 23, 2013, 8:54 AM - Re: MY ROTJ Fett build WIP #41

    I havent decided that part yet. It will be a mixture of colors and mediums. The best results i have seen come from a mixture of airbrush, different grits of sand paper/steel wool, and chalk or pastels( i need to do a little more research). Flat black mist will be part of it. I will be practicing som methods on a test piece before I move to that phase on this armor. For my custom Mando, i basically sprayed it wil black spray paint and then wiped it off and it did the job well enough for that costume but I really want to kick my skills up a notch on this and do the best i possibly can. So far i have painted both knees 2 times and the shoulders a couple times as well completely sanding down to the plastic each time. I am sure some of these other parts will get repainted or swapped out eventually as my skills improve. A costume is never finished, either repairs or upgrades.

    The weathered parts looks really good! Just a small comment regarding the right gauntlet: you should position the small white piece to be parallel with the gauntlet darts.

    Keep up the great work!

    That is my goal. The white part is held in place with painters tape on the inside. I am still working on getting the fight to be just right. Thank you for the compliment.

    Just did some more weathering/sealing/painting.
    Please let me know your thoughts. Id like to be able to mark some of these parts done as I move on to the remaining parts. For color comparison, the parts are outside and on a OD green shelter half. I really hope to get this paint right with my limited skills at such a precise paint up. I really appreciate the feedback.

    cod and collar- painted, weathered, sealed.




    shoulders are reversed in pic, the one with decal(worn on left) is painted weathered and sealed. the other is painted and weathered.



    right chest, painted weathered, sealed



    compared to other chest, still needs weathering by the display cutout.



    All of them together



    remaining are just a progress update for my new rear belt armor, gaunts, and back

    Looks great, man!!

    Couple questions: What method are you using for weathering? How are you getting that fine scratch detail? I really like the cod, collar and shoulders. The right chest weathering looks slightly smudged in comparison. You can clearly see the direction of the weathering. Splatter looks good though!

    Thanks, the weathering is a mix of techniques, black spray paint mist, charcoal, sand paper, x-acto blade, fingernails.
    here is an update for gauntlets
