Alright- Quick update. I was able to unveil this afternoon. Although I am still picking, I am pleased w/ the initial. Later I am going to use a needle and pick off the remaining masking fluid. Anyways, here is a sneak peak..
looking awsome, great job man!
It looks good so far! May I ask, how those ROTJ images helps you in your ESB paintjob?
Dude, WAAAAAAAAY more patience than I could EVER have! As soon as I finish my TK and R2, I'll be commissioning you to paint up an ESB Boba lid for me. GREAT JOB!!
Ok, was able to pick at the back panels a bit more
Hey Brian, for your first time at ESB, it's looking real good keep it up.
Just a quick update..working on getting the size of the stencils accurate. Need to purchase photoshop this week I think. Only so much I can do w/ the zoom option LOL!
try photoscape its free
Use microsoft publisher (assuming you have a pc and not a mac).. jpeg or gif format will make it heaps easier for the image, and all you have to do is go to rafs template page, click on the actual image provided (and not the pdf links), and right click and save it - Easy as m'man!

Hey Brian, they need to be saved in either jpg or gif format. If I have time tomorrow I can save all my templates off for you in that format so you can then resize them.
Rafal uploaded JPG u should be able to now...
Awesome guys! Thanks so much for the quick help!
Alright- Was able to get the mandibles sized fairly close using publisher as jayvee suggested. Over the last couple days was able to get the silver layed, stenciled (2x as my thigh rubbed a portion off ) and masked. I will lay down the grey tomorrow and am looking to have the trim and mandibles done by the weekend.
Moving forward- After applying the lark grey, I was able to mask and hit the maroon this evening! Here are some shots. Tomorrow I plan on stenciling/ masking the maroon which will leave me finishing the mandibles w/ the caboose hopefully by tomorrow evening...keep you posted.
Now were cookin! Got the mandibles pretty much completed w/ the exception of some of the TINY DETAILS I will add topically later on. Let me know your thoughts.
wow , this is looking amazing, I was gonna start working on my dp95 today but it broke~ in half (fell off my display) /cry
