that's quite a lot to trim up!
I just got my V.3 armor. I will be watching this thread with great interest. Nice job so far.
Brand new to the site and I must say I am thoroughly impressed by the devotion nay the absolute obsession with Fett. It makes me feel at home! After some almost 20 years of wanting to build fetts suit I find myself in a position to. I have a ton of questions which will come in time. But the main one now is; is FB Armor defunct? Is there a new site? How much was the armor? Inquiring minds need to know!
Thanks in advance for any info.
welcome aboard, Vargas! i know this is not a welcome thread, but hey...and great work on the new armor, brother!! looking great!
Looks to be coming along quite nicely. Mine should be coming soon, so you are getting me excited. Cant wait to see you get some paint on it.
Welcome to TDH, Vargas1138
Your questions will be answered... seek and you shall definitely find here :)
I draped an old bedsheet over my couch (for the plastic dust), and filed while watching TV. :)
With that crack, don't use JB Weld. Get your hands on a small chunk of plastic, heat it with a heat gun, and form it to the underside of the crack. Once it's cooled, remove it and glue it down with some plastic weld.
Looking great so far Bro. I can't wait to start my Fett. There has already been some info in your thread that is new to me.
Well plastic weld is a chemical bond. The glue will seep through the crack and will bond the crack that way, the piece of plastic is simple reinforcement.
Oh I see what you are talking about.
Quick update of where I am at with the costume and the armor as a whole.
Here is a group shot of everything I have including my MoW gauntlets.
I just received my girth belt and am about to start work on the ammo belt.
I also got my knee darts and gauntlet darts in a few days ago. And my very nice Fettdad harness which is the coolest thing ever. The wookie braids are just doll hair braids which arent too great but Julie is backed up until 2010 and slavefives run is closed I believe...or not.. I guess I'll invest in better ones later.
Your doing great work there man :thumbsup:fettesb
HUGE UPDATE!!! CAPS LOCK!!!
Alright so I laid down the base coat of US Med green and went on to the weathering. I did very slight weathering, since while looking at screen grabs, I could see weathering done lightly. Not too light and not too dark. In pictures your really cannot see weathering, but in person you will see a slight amount of weathering. I think it looks good.
Earlier today hot off the press
Then I painted the yellow on the left chest. All that is left to do is minor scratches.
I applied Scotts decal on the right chest and toned it down with washes of black PS paint.
And the blaster scuff marks...hurry up and finish your blasters Mason, I need to make it look like the blaster did it... and not me... :D
Picture with flash of the cod to show the subtle weathering
I also installed the famous "thong" on the kidney piece. That picture is too x rated for TDH however. I do have a picture with flash of everything though haha.
Sometime this week I will paint the yellow scratches and zinc up the shoulders and knees. :D
Let me know what you think.
looking like all your other stuff... great! keep it up. I swear I'm gonna end up getting rid of my scratch made stuff for some of the FP armor. I feel inadequate now hahaha.
Dude your scratch made stuff looks awesome! Seriously!
Edit- 700th post :D
hey man, that harness is AWESOME!!! you may want to use that new added feature and move those shoulder strap anchors a little bit and get that thing out from under your armpits!! armor looks great brother!!!
Thanks for the advice buddy. Ill adjust the harness tonight. Its just so dang comfy!
REALLY nice progress man, great pics to boot!!!
Nice paint job man.
Wow ! :eek You don't waste any time do ya brother !
Great job man, and pretty record time too !
Sorry to hear about the cod mishap though :( You need/want a replacement?
Yea FP, Im hurrying to finish this cause I want to just get rid of it and buy some SFP armor. I heard its more accurate than yours. :D
Edit- About the cod. Its all good bro, its all patched up and ready to go.But Thanks alot for the generous offer man. You have really been extremely awesome. If I could give you a "Fettpride is Awesome!" award I would hahaha.
