    Armour is looking good! What paints did you use?

    You might want to fix the shoulder studs though, the are not set like that. Even them up keeping them offset around the edges.

    -thanks JoNich
    -thanks, Sarlaccbits I like how it´s getting you helmet painted
    -it´s 0,4 cm infraFett....
    -GCNgamer128 I have use the following colors: a can of primer grey, silver, yellow(standard), "maquina" green, "abeto" green, a brown-green wash ,a black ink wash, and finally a white mist....for the scratchs, I use the mustard sistem sorry, but I live in Spain so the colors names are a little weird, but I buy them in a paint store just to experiment..........now I´m working in the cod part, when it´s finish I will show it here......
    thanks!

    looking good! as was commented above, the shoulder studs are in the wrong place, but otherwise it's nice. great job on the paint! i love seeing when people use what's available to get the job done rather than hunting the exact paints... i think it's more fun that way

    Great job on the painting and weathering. Have you already painted your helmet? If not, I'd suggest you do just so the armor colors and weathering match that of the helmet. If you have already painted it, would you mind shwoing some pics of that? By the way, which Fett version are you doing ?

    That looks wicked awesome!! Very nice armor and blaster! Are the shoulder bells in the second pic more accurate to the color they actually are? Because they look pretty accurate there, as opposed to the really yellow they look in the first pic. Nice job!

    Re: trash armor..what you think?

    Woah, those shoulders were made from pvc pipe?! That's amazing! I never thought that would turn out well, but you've proved me wrong! I can't wait to see the decals and knee progress!

    Re: trash armor..what you think?

    yes, Mando, I use a hot-gun to re-shape them and make them more flat.. and I guess that it could be usefull to make the knees and the gauntlets(I have allready make the half of one, and I think they could look good, too) let´s see how they end........
    thanks!!
