    Re: Grungie's ESB Build Parts List. A few pieces missing.

    Sounds like you will have one kickass Fett once you're done.

    Stormrider makes ESB EE-3's and sidearms. I think Mojo stopped making his sidearm, so best way to get one of his is from another owner.
    Shin tools I guess you can find the real parts, but if not both Bobamaker and BF-UK makes them.

    Sidearm holster you can get form fettpride.

    Toespikes you can also get form mojo.

    It's a really good list you've got there mate. Really good. Top notch stuff.
    As for the stuff you haven't got I know BobbyFettUK does shin tools. They are excellent. Bobamaker also does them but one of his pieces isn't Esb specific. Again both are from the uk so shipping might be steep.
    Sidearm and toe spikes you can get both from MojoFett. The toe spikes are metal (ali) and both items are excellent. Sidearm holsters are fettpride.
    As for US blasters! I think Stormrider does them in kit form.

    Edit: locitus beat me to it. Touché.

    Excellent! Thanks Locitus! I had some idea of where to get these parts, but it's confusing when reading posts as a lot of the threads are a few years old, this gives me confidence of an updated list, cheers!

    Thanks Redtogusa! I know a lot of my parts on my list are expensive and i could have cut a couple of corner's but, I'm wanting to put together a rad costume, and you know the old saying "Yo u get what you pay for" I'm a strong believer in that statement, I'd rather pay that little bit extra and get quality stuff, than take a chance on cheaper variations and be disappointed Thanks for your help with the maker's of these pieces as well, right on!

    I like that saying. I was also once told "Buy cheap, buy twice". Both very true statements when building a Fett. Well done mate.

    I think Mojofett still does his sidearm kit. Plus anything from the US or UK shipping to AUS is killer there's just no way around it. As for your stuff it's going out soon.

    Great list of makers there too!

    Re: Grungie's ESB Build Parts List. A few pieces missing.

    For close to screen accurate paints, I searched the ESB color list in the Armor forum, and searched all over the net. I found most of them at a place called Engine House. All the colors except the US Med Green, and after doing a bit more research in the forum I found a color by Model Masters - Euro Dark Green 1764 is a dead ringer exact match to the US Med Green.

    I found some on ebay, which the seller had 4 bottles, so i bought them all. But if you search for that color you should find it with no problems. but for the color list, check in the armor forum stickies.

    EDIT: which upon checking ebay, there are numerous sellers selling the color as well. So there ya go, accurate paints my friend...

    Nice list there mate.
    Talk to Jayvee or BGHunter about paints and colours here in Australia. I am going to be using spray paints and from what these guys have told me and from what they have done looks pretty good.
    I have pretty much everything for my ESB Fett apart from the sidearm and holster. Was considering making my own sidearm and getting the holster from FP. Maybe upgrading to a better sidearm down the track.

    Cheers Woodman! I've contacted Mojo about the sidearm and tow spikes, looking forward to seeing if they are still available.

    Thanks Gilmore, I know there are parts of this forum I am yet to completly discover, so the paints are still a bit of a mystery, but with this advice, a mystery not for long!

    I have access to a couple of friends who have air compressors and airbrushes, so i think I'm gonna go air brush paints VS spray cans. but I'm looking forward to seeing your progress!

    Speaking of spray cans do people see a big difference in consistency vs an airbrush because I've been wanting to paint my JP myself but not sure if the old lady is going to allow me to buy an airbrush and compressor.

    I just noticed your from New York! I just visited there not 2 months ago, I stayed at a place across from MSG. I love that city, i think i could live there, no problem, the food, the people, the night life, insane! I went to a place called "The rockwood music hall" awesome live venue, really great bands, if you like live music, and you live in NYC, check it out, always a great vibe!

    Re: Grungie's ESB Build Parts List. A few pieces missing.

    Can Anyone point me to the direction of a thread that shows where all these parts go on the ESB Blaster?



    Also, what colours and where I'm meant to paint the side arm?



    Cheers!

    I have added you on Skype to help with the Blaster. Oh, I also need the colours for the sidearm, so when you find that out, make a thread about it!
