    Feb 6, 2008, 12:30 PM - My Screamin Boba Fett model #1

    About year ago i bought this model and started painting it.. about half-way through i had to put the project down in favour of other things. (Some might remmember the "Show-Off" thread back then... )

    Anyway.. this last two weeks i've been putting some real elbow grease into it and i've made a real leap in its development.. but i degress.. you're not here to read.. you are here to look! So.. on to the pics!

    I'm going to mount the model on a plattform which is, in the end, going to resemble a corner in Jabbas palace..


    To weather the boots Tamiya weathering kits... I can't begin to praise these little "make-up" kits...






    The back with Jet Pack and cape..


    The left side


    I've still got some weathering left on the helmet though.. as well as attatch the range finder.




    Again.. these knees are a result of those wonderful Tamiya weathering kits.


    And here is the killer.. Real working lights in the gauntlet and chest display!!

    Oh, I remember that kit! I never had one, I had the larger 1/4 scale one.
    You did a nice job!

    Close.. the model itself is 12 inches tall but with the diorama it will probably be closer to 16inches in total.


    Anyway.. i've got the Screamin Han solo 1/6t size as well... I'll be sinking my teeth into that one a bit later..

    The jumpsuit is weathered with an airbrush but everything else is painted free hand. Except for the chest and shoulder decals which were.. well.. decals...


    oh.. and the symbols on the jet pack are decals as well..

    For a ROTJ helmet i would agree with you.. but this is supposed to be a ROTJ SE Fett with the ESB helmet.

    Yeh I see that...Just seems a little to tinted...might be the lighting though it looks like theres white in the green maybe...looks light in relation to the chest armor by alot. You did a awesome job just that one thing sticks out to me, just trying to help not baggin on ya....Its just the dome and lower cheeks that Im refering to the rear of the helmet is spot on color wise.

    Mine is ROTJ with an ESB pack.

    If you are luckey you can still find them on E-bay.

    But i get what you say about the helmet. Practically all the colours are mixed by me eye-balling it from reference pictures. I guess the flash is making it lighter than it really is but compared to my MR ESB it is several shades lighter than the MR.

    Yes, please do share!

    Well i finished the diorama as well as i could in time for it to be signed tomorrow by JB himself.. or sunday..





    Does anyone else than me use Picasa? I made these two with only a few clicks and i think that they turned out quite nice.. almost cartoonish or "artish" (is that a word?)



  19. Mar 26, 2010, 3:08 PM - Re: My Screamin Boba Fett model #19

    Ha ha. I think the word you're looking for is "artsy"

    I have not used Picasa, but what you've got there is your basic sepia color adjustment.

    I got it signed this last weekend... JOY!

    He was very impressed with the accuracy (even though the helmet green was a bit on the light side ) since he knows how detail crazy we are here on TDH.

    But nuff talk.. on to the pics!







    J.B. was great as usual. Taking the time to walk over to our stand for a little chat. for those who haven't met him he is a very sympathetic gentleman who enjoys meeting his fans as much as we enjoy meeting him. And he is such an easy going person never missing a beat.

    A garrison members son had borrowed an E-11 Blaster from our stand and "collected" J.B and he never missed a beat..



    I sincerly hope i get to meet him again soon.
