    Okay so no work in progress just yet.

    I just got back from the post office and picked up and opened my FettPride ESB armor! Loving it already! So much work ahead of me.

    Super awesome, thanks Chris!!!

    Okay I started work on the shoulders and the knees....started with sanding and a coating of automotive primer. Added a layer of Krylon Silver and will now start marking off areas with pencil for masking fluid.

    Added a zinc chromate boarder around the siver spots I'd like to keep....once dry I'll mask with liquid masker and airbrush the main yellow.

    Masked everything I wanted and then sprayed a coat of UP Armor Yellow. Let it dry overnight and then pulled the masking and added a little bit of weathering to it. Will weather a bit more after I apply the shoulder decal. The other shoulder just got sprayed with the orange and is drying...will update that as well here soon.

    Here are the finshed shoulders and knees....pics don't really do them justice with the flash. Next I'll start work on the cod I think.

    They come with resin darts but most replace with the machined ones.

    Yeah the knee darts are machined, the ones Chris provide are great resin ones but I went with the full metal look. As for my first time painting...armor yes..lol.

    wow, looks great, especially for a first timer... you ARE referring to first time painting ARMOR and not first time painting right? Either way, great job.

    Just by the looks of the knees and shoulders I think you're doing an awesome job! Good going!

    Fett 4 Real, not sure about his boots but the guantlet darts are pretty cool, I have those as well....make a nice touch.

    And yes Bacta, first time painting armor...not painting period. I have been building models since I was 4.

    I just got finished in the garage sanding down the cod and kidney plate so those should get a coat of primer this afternoon.

    Thanks all!
