    Thank you guys!

    So I started to scratch build the sidearm today. I found a great Nerf gun from Walmart and some greeblies from Home Depot. I plan on correcting the handle's shape, adding the grip texture and then getting the angle before I continue with the rest. I might even Rub n Buff the pipe. Not sure yet.

    What do you guys think?

    Incase you guys didn't see my showoff thread, I picked up a real nemrod holster and US dive buckle for $85.





    Also, my gauntlets will be finished this weekend. Stay tuned

    Where do you guys find real parts like that for that price? Whenever I look for a nemrod or pulce, I get nothing or on rare occasion I actually find one, its way out of my price range.

    I was just browsing different Craigslists in my state looking for "spear gun" and came across this beaut.

    Here are a couple of shots of what I have so far. Gauntlets will be finished in a couple weeks. Really need to get some MOW boots and a BBF belt sometime next month when funds allow it.

    Thanks man! Appreciate it.

    Thank you guys!

    Here's a side by side comparison of what I have so far (minus the armor that's on it's way, the Jetpack that I need a harness for, and the real Nemrod holster). I plan on hitting my left leg some more and I need to weather the vest too. Let me know what you think!

    What colour is that on the gauntlets? It looks a bit too dark, if you look at the comparison pic the gauntlets are a lighter green
    Than on the helmet dome and cheeks yet your gaunts are darker, other than that I think its going great.

    To be honest, I don't know exactly. My painting is being commissioned. I'll find out.

    But if you look at the reference, the Gauntlets on the original fett do in fact match the dome just as mine do. At least, that's my opinion.

    Everything looks killer dude. Paintjob on the gauntlets looks great. The rocket and the flamethrower look really nice as well. I agree that they look a little dark compared to the helmet though. Did the same guy paint them?

    Thanks Matt means a lot coming from you.

    Yeah same guy painted them. He's been doing paint jobs for Florida 501st costumes for years and Fett is no exception. I really think it's the lighting. Here are some other shots of the Gaunts.





    He said since he doesn't have any of the US medium green he used hunt club green.

    Here's what his armor looks like and what mine will look like when he paints it:

    Looking great so far Wes! And I think you are right, the lighting is probably throwing it off. They look great to me, very sharp. I look forward to seeing the vest get weathered!

    Thank you both. Means a lot.

    Still haven't ordered the boots or belt. Funds are not good right now but I just got promoted so it should pick back up in a couple weeks. I should be getting one of Dark-Side's aluminum Jetpack beacons in the mail any day now.

    And I've screwed up. I was weathering my vest by very lightly misting it with some light brown spray paint and I noticed my can was running low. So I got a little closer and then I thought it was completely out so I put the spray can about 4 inches away from the vest to see if I could get any particles and bam. A whole glob of brown paint coats onto the left sleeve of my vest.

    I'm frantically washing it as hot as my washer can go. I coated it with stain off and detergent.

    This sucks
