    Jul 3, 2013, 6:16 PM - WIP SE suit (FettPride armor, MOW Gaunts). #1

    Hey all,

    I am getting supplies for when my armor (FettPride V4), gauntlets (MOW), and lid (ASOK CC GMH) arrive. I am going to try my hand with airbrushing it myself, as well as doing layered weathering/ damage. I cannot for the life of me find a paint coloring list of any kind. I would appreciate any links you guys could throw up... ROTJ armor and ESB lid specifically. I also am not sure which stencils are for the bobamaker armor and MOW gauntlets....

    Thanks again, and I will keep you updated with the progress!

    Boba Fett Paint Colors - MindMeister Mind Map

    I found this a while ago. I'm not sure if it is totally accurate, so I would ask guys like Rafalfett, deadland, and jayvee if the colors are right. I am planning on converting the mind map to an excel file soon, probably when I'm laid up from the operation. When it's done I will post it in a new thread and let anyone who wants it have it.

    Jayvees/Terminal Fettlers color lists for the Lid are spot on check them out in the helmet thread....I like spideyfetts colors for the armor, http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f25/j...tml#post312794 thats a starting point certain things will be different now as the colors are outdated and such and unavailable...Like UP Armor Yellow I found (I THINK) RLM 20? I think thats the color Id have to go look its super close in color. And theres alot of other paint companies out there.

    Well, doodoo. I will check them out, and PM them to see if the colors are still good. Also, what kind of airbrush do most people use? I don't want a pile of junk, but I am not buying it for a buisness either......

    I know that modeltrainstuff.com and internethobbies.com still have lots of stock on PollyScale's UP Armor Yellow (and most other Pollyscale/Floquil paints too). However, I used Humbrol's Insignia Yellow 154 enamel on my new ESB armour and it worked out really nicely. I also used Testor's MM Euro Dark Green enamel for my armour. It looks like a good color, but I would lighten it up with just a little white to give it more of a minty, pastelly sort of colour. It's the right tone, but just a touch too dark for ESB, IMHO. It might work out pretty good for an SE Fett though.

    I sprayed all of my silver using Tremclad Silver out of a spraybomb. All the other paints were shot through a Paasche Talon airbrush set. You can pick one up from TCP Global for about $100. Look for airbrush and compressor combo sales from them too.

    Fett 4 Real, do you have a link to spideyfetts ROTJ armor paint list, or is it essentially the same colors?

    Also, I am checking into getting a set of either BM armor, or FP armor. So far only Bobamaker has responded, but that shipping cost is a swift kick to the nethers! I was hoping to get a quote from Fettpride before I commit to either one, but no joy.

    Try finding FPArmor on Facebook. It took a couple days for a response, but I did get one from Chris.

    I'm getting my armor, lid and jetpack all from FP. Great deal if you get it all from him plus the shipping is easier to stomach.

    Well, Bobamaker got back to me, and considering FP's new endeavor I decided to go with Bobamaker. Payment sent, and I hope I get to see these pieces relatively soon! Maybe ASOK will give me news on the GMH I am on the list for.

    From what I understand I don't think FP's new helmet will be holding back production of his armor and such. Most hard part suppliers aren't super fast by any means, but I at least know he's not backed up for a a year like I've heard BM is...

    BM just told me it was a DEC time frame, but if it was a serious issue he could possibly move me up to OCT. I was hoping to have the armor early enough for Halloween. If I am able to get ahold of FP, and he has a far better wait time I may ask for a refund and attempt to go that route. Problem is (and I know he is busy) I have been unable to get ahold of him through any outlet (and that makes me think he must be swamped). I wish BM had mentioned the wait time before I paid him, haha, because now I am thinking I may be totally screwed and have everything but the armor come Halloween time. On the plus side, my GMH is done and should be shipped soon!

    Yeah, FP is around I just know this new release has gotten him a ton of emails. With that being said last I checked his 8-12 week order fulfillment was still in effect. Something to look into. Sounds like his armor molds will be a little more free than his helmet mold queue will be for a bit

    Even 8-12 weeks could give me a little time to get it done. We will see, I hate to back out on BM, but that is a huge chunk of money to pay for a 5 month wait. Especially because he didn't even mention it. I should have asked as well, but I figured unpainted armor wouldn't be that long. I am just going to have to wait till I hear from FP and see how bad his que is....

    I think patience is going to be a key factor in this project. I don't plan to have mine done until Halloween of next year. Just get little bits here and there to work on over time. Hopefully my EE3 gets here so I can start plugging away.

    Well, good news! FP got ahold of me and I should be getting my armor made in the not too distant future. As for now I have cleaned up my gauntlets and fiberglassed them. Now I need to clean them up again, and install the hinges. I also need to send payment to ASOK so he can ship my helmet.

    Boba didn't have hinged gauntlets, only Jango did.

    That is the only change I want to make to the gauntlets from the original. I think hinges will increase the rigidity and overall strength. I was hoping I could do it and get away with it without too much flak . Any way I can still do it and still be good in the eyes of the 501st?

    If you maybe hide the hinges on the outside of the gauntlets under the side attachment sections like the flamethrower, so it's hard to see. Honestly, I've used the movie style attachment of velcro on my gauntlets for about 14 years now, and that works just fine. I also keep the velcro closed all the time on the inside of the gauntlets and just slide the whole gauntlet on every time I troop. No need for side opening. Guess it depends on how large your forearms are, though.

    Another question... I am doing an SE suit. I am looking for more references/info on the switches, toggles, and LED's for the gauntlets. I am definitely ready to begin work on that before I paint them up..
