    Sep 27, 2004, 10:27 AM - Flans Bucket! #1

    Well as some of you may know, I make shin tools for Boba but I never had a Fett of my own.....until now. I worked with my good buddy Judz Dwedd and ran one of his awesome buckets. Then I used Steve the Swedes bucket for inspiration (great paintjob by the way!)

    I started with Rogues paint suggestions and went nuts for the next couple of months. It's not screen acurate but somewhat close and I think it turned out pretty good.

    I just wanted to add that the members on this forum are the best of the best. And it is very evident when you try to tackle a project like this yourself. My hat's off to all of you!

    Next on the plate is the armor! Stay Tuned.

    That is amazing job, Flan. I might need to get some help doing one for myself.

    Thanks man, couldn't have done it without you! All of my 'Problem' spots disappeared once I went to work painting it. I'm a fiberglass noob.

    I used liquid mask, but from what I hear you can use the 'mustard' trick.
