    Nov 10, 2013, 7:34 AM - New Boba starting around ROTJ WIP #1

    Hello there,

    I am new at this Forum and I am about to start my own Boba Fett ROTJ Project. I am very impressed about this site and the craftsmenship of many of you here.

    I started with the following items:

    Flak jacket: MoW
    Boots: MoW 2013
    Spikes: Mojo
    ROTJ Gauntlets: MoW 2013
    Armor parts: Bobamaker (expected this November)

    Yesterday I finished the right gauntlet. I atteched some pics, so please tell me what you think if you like This is my first attempt in painting gauntlets.

    I also had an idea how to attach the hoses to the gauntlet. I used Stereo chinch connectors. I dont know if anyone had this idea so far. I just wanted to share it with you. I have some pics attached.

    Greetings from Germany,

    Welcome!

    Nice job on the paint, and I like that hose attachment as well

    How are you locking(closing) the gauntlet together? Velcro?

    Thanks for the welcome.

    To lock the gauntlets I used a hinge at the inside part of the gaunts and Im going to use valcro for the other part.

    Tomorrow Im going to finish the left gauntlet. I will post more pics then.

    Thanks.
    Yesterday I started on my MOW Boots. Basic painting is done, weathering needs to come. Here is the first pic. Colors seem a little bit bright due to the camra flash. I havnt done a helmet so far.

    I finished the knee armor today. Weathering needs to come. The painting technique is the same I used with the shoulder bells. The yellow seems a little bit bright due to the camera flash. In natura its darker.

    Thanks very much.
    I use my airbrush and some drybrushing tehchniques. I am going to start with a very thin layer of humbrol green 78 mixed with humbrol green 117. After that I am going to myst humbrol black 33 also using my airbrush. Then I am going to start drybrushing the areas which are darker. The final step will be the highlighting of the edges of the armor.
