    WIP Holiday/Droids Fett Suit

    Hey guys! Here's my progress so far.
    The armor from RKD and paint-up by myself.
    I started the finish sanding on the backplate and am doing a bit of re-shaping to the collar.

    I left the light slot out of it for now because I'm unsure if I'm going with the black HS version or just the recessed outline like in the DROIDS cartoon. Also, do you think I should leave the center rectangle blank because the animated doesn't have the diamond anyway and I figured the less attention I draw to it the better it is.




    I've only gotten one shoulder so far because of a paint cracking issue with the left one (you be quiet, F4R )

    Looking really great so far! Yes, I would leave the diamond as-is. Actually, I hadn't noticed the rectangle. I had to look at the pic again after I read your post. Keep us posted...

    As stated before over on HHS, I'm loving this build. Your paint skills are just phenomenal! I definitely can't wait till this one gets done, especially after seeing your CK Fett. By the way, did you want me to send you a smooth diamond for this project??? LMK

    Thanks, F4R! That means a lot coming from you considering the trouble I had at the start.
    Also from you RKD.

    By smooth diamond I take it you mean without the center recess? That'd be pretty neat. You are too kind.

    Oh, guys don't think the carbon scorches are too dark do you?

    Not cutting the chest display out?

    I'm not sure on which way yet so just for now I was leaving it.
    The HS has it either cut out or just a what looks like a black square, while the DROIDS version looks like a recessed rectangular outline.
    DROIDS also has extra recessed "panels" in the center of each chest plate.

    I figured I'll work on the rest of the suit before I really decide which version I really want to do.

    Very nice. I've always loved people's interpretation of this suit in a real-world environment. Look forward to updates!

    There have been a few without the diamond, Boba Die Wix's being one of them.

    Someday I wouldn't mind going all the way and trying it as close as possible to the animated style like my CK suit.
    Right down to even being three-fingered.

    Sorry guys, no updates yet and probably not again until after the weekend.
