    A few folks wondered if I was still taking commissions.
    Of course I am, don't be ridiculous.
    In fact, I have NO COMMISSIONS ON MY WORKBENCH!!!
    Now would be a great time to pad my wallet, I mean get some work done.

    I think I'm about through with this MOW pack for MadMartigan.
    Unless he wants a wash or two on it, I'll be shipping this out during the week.

    These are outside in the warm California sun with a flash to highlight the recesses,Lemme know what everyone thinks.

    Awesome, my friend! Looks so cool with the Serenity and Dark-Side metal parts! Not sure if it needs a wash or not. I'll leave that to your expert opinion.

    And you do have a pending commission that will be on your bench as soon as I can get it there! Let me know if I need to pay you now for it to reserve my place in line.

    The Aluminum parts make a huge difference. I would strongly encourage everyone with an ESB pack to replace the collar with an aluminum one.
    Here's a comparison pic with the real ESB pack Collar

    As you can see, It's obviously Aluminum and trying to replicate that look with paint is just about impossible.

    You can paypal me if you'd like

    Another great paintjob. I am very pleased with mine.

    So, do you offer the aluminum collar? I really want to upgrade my stabilizer and beacon with aluminum parts before I finsh assembly so I might as well get all three at the same time.

    SWEET pack bro. If you're looking for a top notch, professional painter, you have to consider Nate. His work speaks for itself...

    Ah yes, the superior pack that got randomly nerfed by a blind man with a ghaffi stick.

    And yet it still flew.
    Did the ESB jetpack fly? NO
    it was more of a backpack than a Jetpack.

    Do you have jetpack clips attached to your wall?

    Just a quick question since I'm an ROTJ guy. What color paint is that gray-ish color around the edges of the main silver area? It doesn't look quite black, but "almost".

    I've used that to weather my ROTJ pack before, but mine was Floquil Grimy Black in rattlecan, not airbrush or anything like that. It looks cool on the ESB pack.
