    The right gaunt buttons... how much? Where can I purchase and do have a part#?
    Thanks SPY007
    I bought them from Mouser Electronics (Mouser Electronics - Distributor elektronischer Bauteile). The part number is 506-MPA 106D. They were $12.90 each. I know you can get them cheaper sometimes but I trust mouser and have used them on a number of my projects. Good Luck!

    I will weather them when I do the whole costume. First will be "clean" fett and then "dirty" fett. I think the effect turns out better and less spotty.

    The backplate has some layered damage. This was my test piece and it seems to have turned out ok.

    I have made some progress on the helmet as well. This is my "practice" helmet and I have learned alot! My skills are getting better and I think by the time I am done with this one I will be ready to paint up a nice ESB cast. But this will do for now.

    I have the left gauntlet assembled and the basic paint layout done. I have a boatload of weathering and blending of the paint to give it that "lived-in" look. It looks a little blocky right now.

    I also added some padding and velcro that matches up to velcro on the sleeves of the jumpsuit to keep the gauntlets from moving around and falling off.

    The helmet had the visor installed and the right ear and rangefinder added. I still need to add more details to the ears and the rangefinder is still missing one small part.

    Man the second costume looked pretty **** good to me. Fit you really well and looked good. The helmet just needed a repaint and a pinch on the mandibles.....
