    Jul 21, 2014, 4:56 PM - WIP : ESB Boba Fett #1

    Hi, I want to introduce you to my project. I already have a boba fett purchased of a member of the Swiss garrison, but there was a lot of things change. So I ordered a new bobamaker armor.

    I started painting, this is the first time I used the airbrush with humbrol painting.

    At the moment I have masked the gray and I started the yellow, but I have difficulty with the yellow humbrol to properly cover the gray.

    Here are the other parts of the costume that I bought on TDH: gauntlet bobamaker wookie braids real horse hair (woodman) girth belts , vest and neck seal (batninja).

    I will continue to post pictures of my point. thank you for reading me.

    Hi!
    Looks like a great start!

    If you have problems with the yellow covering try to reduce thinning ratio and increase the compressors pressure. I hate airbrushing yellow paint so i went for the topical method on my armor, but i'm sure you will manage this step

    I saw on the forum that some members, using magnets to attach the armor vest.
    But how to choose the right magnet? What strength and size?
    Can attach all the armor, so chest and shoulder? For the back, I thought of Velcro, because I have to put in the opening two.
    Thank you.

    I started painting, first the armor and silver and yellow and green now but it takes some more layer I think, that will be very green and doing wathering.
    I expects from boba maker the softs parts for this month.

    I continued my painting with the advice obtained here at TDH. Green starts to please me, now it must be done weathering.

    looking great....as for magnets, I've recently bought some little square ones , they have a pull of 3.5kg, which is plenty strong enough. I have also bought some less strong ones with a hole in the middle, this way I can sew these to the flak jacket and thus double up the magnetic bond....I hope it works anyway

    I used 3/4 x 1/16 Inch round Neodymium Rare Earth Disc Magnets from Amazon. They are N48 and have a 5.3 pound pull force and work really well for my Bobamaker V3 armour. They were about $6 for a pack of 10, so they're relatively affordable .
    I bought 1/2 inch magnets for the chest diamond and I used very strong magnets on the shoulders, knee armour and to keep the collar armour in place. I used N50 Disc Neodymium Rare Earth Magnet 1” x 1/8" . These are borderline “stupid strong”. They have almost 13 pounds of pull. They're not going anywhere.

    I glued the magnets to the armour and use another magnet on the other side of the flack vest. I didn't bother to sew the vest magnet as the magnetic force keeps them in place and you can adjust the armour as needed.

    Keep up the good work.

    Thank you very much for your advice, I'll order my magnets according to your recommendations.
    I will put new photos as soon as I advance a little about painting.

    Start of weathering , green is good I find what do you think? I think weathering directly with humbrol 79 without mixing with green 76 and 78 for the dark impact on the armor. If you have any advice I'm interested.

    I want to know what type of strap you use? and their dimensions (thickness, length, width).
    And I'm looking to fix my blaster greeblies (trigger) that broke during an event or how to make one or make it stronger. I still have two broken piece in case.
    Thank you for your help.

    I like to break up the colour a little with a light spray of a darker colour, and I do mean light. Also I'm a great advocate of washes and light misting with Browns/ greys/blacks. Just make sure you seal the armour before you do a wash ( the sealer needs to cure fully first before a wash). I usually use cheap oil paints for my washes... There is defiantly a nack to weathering... I find it can either make or break a great paint job.
