    Jun 10, 2013, 9:07 PM - My V2 Empire Boba Fett Armor [Image Heavy] #1

    Hey guys, I've been plugging away on getting this armor painted up since I got it a few months ago and it's finally finished. The paint is based on RafalFett's templates as well as some of the Bespin hallway shots. All of the weathering is done layered style with masking fluid and rattlecan paints. The emblems are also painted on from cut stencils also based on RafalFett's templates. The plates are from RedKraytDragon.

    Wow! fantastic job! I hope I can do the yellow detail like you did--I worry about overdoing it.

    Thanks! The trick is to very accurately draw on the damage in pencil first so you can check your proportions, then fill in your lines with masking fluid. I use a soft 6B drawing pencil so it leaves clear marks without scratching the silver paint.

    Absolutely horrible! Send them to me so that I may properly dispose of them!

    Thanks for the tip, I will have to get me one of the those 6B pencils! Again, these look absolutely beautiful.

    are you using transfer paper or just eyeballing it with the pencil? for some reason the carbon paper I have won't transfer onto the metallic rustoleum paint I use. by the way,awesome paint up! those painted on decals are insane!
