That is some sweet looking armour!! :thumbup
oohhh sweeet jeeebus! not more FP goodies!!
the pocketbook, must..resist....cant ...have...rotj...and esb..suits....thinks.......sleeping outside....for the......next.....year..
Man, that v.3 armor looks tasty.
Not being as well versed about armor as I am about helmets, would this armor also work for a ROTJ Fett?
Or is the pattern of dents different?
LOL....FPH now THIS? Very cool...three words...
Sign Me Up!
Wow, I......wow.....it's just........wow.
I'm digging the curves you've got on the armor. That's one thing SpideyFett and I talked about at the Fett exhibit was the curves and angles of the plates are more severe than they look in pics. Really nice job.
Nice work on the armor there, FP!
Man, you Boba guys are getting spoiled! All I want for christmas is some Jango gauntlets
Foxbat - Ho, Ho , Ho my brotha
Small update -
I just sent out a bunch of PM's about the second portion of the first run list.
Let me know ASAP !!
Thanks again guys !
Very nice as always FP! I'll be needing at least one set of chest armor when you are ready.
#12 Baby!!! :thumbup
Oh yeah.. I am in for the V3 armor and V2 gauntlets of course!
Beautiful work Chris, as I said colour me interested for the V3 Armour and even some ESB gauntlets if they are to be offered, let me know buddy Im spending the next few days sat by my front door waiting for the mailman
I´m probably completely out of order here, but I´d like to be included in this Helmet run, and also the armor run.
I just want to get the best stuff around..
WOW....that V3 is incredible...you nailed it man!! great job
I'm really dying to see the v.3 knees... I'm dying to get some real accurate ones!!!
PM sent FP!!
Is it just the chest armor that is in the V3 stage or are you going the whole nine yards with shoulder, back and so on...
Wow, that helm and armour looks simply amazing! Nice work on that, you have some serious skills! :thumbup
Funny you should ask ...
It's a almost a total refit. All parts except the bells ... Brand New! It's pretty crazy. And in record time too. Just finishing up a couple of the parts today. Will have the knees done by the end of the weekend. So the showoff thread will start with chest armor, collar armor, backplate, and cod piece.
This is gonna be awesome...!!! :thumbup
Did you get my PP FP ?
MJ needs some ho ho ho magic FP?
Ive been tracking my FPH since it left its country of origin and for the last 5 days its just stated as 'awaiting customs charges' the annoying thing is its in my country, the UK, come on parcelforce people im dying here!!!! You need to tell me what the charges are so I can pay them!! Sorry had to vent
Soon HH.... it'll be worth the wait. but know what you mean about our customs!
I'm waiting to hear if mine exists...?
Does "CCU" mean anything to you guys? I'm trying to keep up, I'm gettin there ... but if I don't slow down a bit soon, "CCU" is where I'll end up
Mojo - PM's received. Pictures TODAY. Thread TODAY. FPH .... this weekend.
Today is the day ... V3 armor. Stupid accurate. Thread going up in ....

V3 armor!!! you da man!!
Ok.. being really bolnde! CCU? :o
FP.. I know *:o*, and thanks for the update? :thumbup
This thread is gonna rock!!
No, no ... not blond buddy .. you're in the U.K., I think they call it something different there
I cant wait to see new pics of the V3 armor...
Did you get my payment and shipping info ok? Thanks.
Is the V3 armor thread in the same place as the FPH "hidden" thread? I´m not asking because I think it´s a bad idea or being elitist, just wondering.. Because I´d like to get in on the action, if at all possible.
*Please disregard this post, I found the thread *

Ok back on topic... FPH updates?
p.s. - V3 does look soooo sweet, glad I jumped on it! :thumbup
OK, I got a question...Been looking and asking around....but nothing yet.
Am I the only one who doesn't know or have access to the FPH page? I know I got a bucket coming but.....curiousity is killing me!
Sorry guys .. I'm a mush brain these days
I do have some news for the FPH guys that have committed to the latest slots. It's not great news report though, so don't get excited. It appears that the second half of the run may be a bust PM's will be sent out shortly.
Of course if you do happen to have a sec, Chris......
Dude, dont say that I just bought a **** load of paint and replaced a ton of things to prepare for this!
Relax PMs sent.
Please check for a PM from me. Thanks.
Have I missed the boat concerning the new FPH? Is there a possiblilty of another run in the future? incredible work as always FP.
The FPH's aren't going anywhere. Well, at least not in the foreseeable future if I have anything to say about it
Thanks guys !
I would be interested in one as well please shoot me a pm
back to the top!
I WOULD BE SO IN FOR A BUCKET PLEASE PUT ME ON THE LIST.
::ROCKS BACK AND FOURTH IN THE CHAIR AT THE OFFICE::
No need to shout MG...
I think these are on hold for a short time while FP clears the V3 Armour list mate...
Maybe I might be lucky you never know.
Simply amazing. The first thread I have been on since joining the site, and I'm blown away by the dedication and skill shown on the Helmet and Armor. Any room on the list for Run #3,4,or 5.
Getting there bro. I've still only got 6 paid, but I'm going to proceed anyway. I don't like having anything outstanding for too long. So hang tight my friend. I'll probably get them prepped this weekend.
Thanks for the update man! Looking forward to it!
FP... PM sent also.
*Fingers crossed* thanks for the update FP...
PM sent about payment.
That's an excellent looking dome.
pm'd you as well!
Chris are you still numbering the helmets you make?
if so can i have # 21, lmk
I dont care what number I get so long as I get one!
Hopefully Chris will update us sometimes here soon.
i want it cause it's my birth date...
Ya gotta look at more than just this thread Jon
I posted a small update on the V.3 armor thread, I didn't make it over to this one because it was in a pinch, Sorry bro
Hey Sixx... sorry bro #21 is taken / received / preped for paint...
Cool...i guess i'll take what i can get, lol

Chris, my friend, did you get my PM?
PM sent Chris...
FP, PM sent and received?
Hi guys and gals ! Joe, you're right on my friend ! Due continue to read
A small update - I'll post this same update in all of my active threads.
Yesterday was a snow day from hell. I know, that sounds like a contradiction in terms But you know the old saying ... "When it snows in hell" ? Well since I really hate where I currently live, I consider the saying accurate ... because it did, AGAIN
As most of you know that have been keeping up, and for those that may not yet .. my little "mountain town" is getting slammed this winter. The worst on record since 1968. And it figures. We haven't had a bad winter since 1995, so I suppose we were due, as it is considered "snow country". Adding insult to injury, we got nearly 2 feet of snow almost overnight, and it shut us down here. I spent the whole day yesterday with snow removal. I had to take off from work to do this. Emergency services shut down, as well as all of the normal stuff, schools, city transit, airports, retail establishments, ect. My main focus was removing the hundreds of pounds of snow from my Mother's covered porches and overhangs, because after 2 months of this every week practically, there has been a rash of "cave-in" incidents around the area. Very dangerous stuff. In fact, we still have the same snow buried under many more feet of compounded snow from other storms, that first came down back in late November We've also had lines down (power loss) which translates to NO HEAT, no internet (my wife in Indiana has had to "Proxy" for me) as well as cell phone towers and service interruptions. The final "insult" here, is that very soon, we will be literally buried, as there are no contingency plans in place here for "mass" snow removal/relocation. We were caught off guard to say the least. Put simply, we're running out of places to put the snow !
The moral to the story is, I was completely unable to get any of the small outstanding orders out to the post yesterday. I wanted to make sure that everyone is informed as to what delays I encounter as I go, if any. This was a really big one folks, and I had no control But my apologies nevertheless.
The cold is still affecting works as well. There are a few of you that have been waiting for FPH's that may not understand why I can proceed with "another" run of armor, when you are waiting for your pieces, ect. Please understand, fiber glassing is a different process from the armor, that is adversely affected by extreme temperatures and humidity, the forming process for armor - not so much. So for those of you (very few, I think 5) that have been waiting patiently for the "Mid January" expectation, please accept my apologies as well, but again, I simply have no control. I try to set realistic expectations, but there was no way to predict that this would still be going on. If any of you would like to entertain "refunds", please contact me and I will make those arrangements. Otherwise, if you're ok with waiting, that's good too. This is why I've stopped accepting interest with the FPH, a few weeks back, as I didn't want to backlog myself, and keep any more members "waiting" than necessary.
I want to thank everyone for their continued patience and support. Rest assured, things are still moving forward, but very slowly on some fronts.
Chris, take your time....I rather have a QUALITY bucket, than a rushed one!!
also i had a sent a pm a while back asking about extra parts...lmk if its a go.
No worries for my part, Chris! As long as you are safe, dude..
Thanks so much guys, you're the best
Superjedi - Dude, that has got to be the funniest thing I have heard all week I really did laugh out loud at that one. Thank you so much for that, I needed it
Sixx- I'll go see what ya sent - sorry my friend
Hi, FP. No problems here and no rush. I've been off the boards for a bit so apologies for taking so long to check in the progress. Thanks for the updates and the great work your doing.
I only learnt about the situation at home today, I don´t read the armor threads, now that I have mine here..
Sometimes life just happens, dude.
I´ll be happy as long as I recieve my helmet eventually
Just wanted to remind eveyone that FP is now back with his wife dealing with their personal medical issues...
So he will be taking a tad longer to reply and finish his previous obligations...Please be patient.
Thx for the heads up... no rush on my part.
Give him my best and god blessings!
Chris pm sent!
