    Soo while I wait until a liner is found, I made a mock up out of cardstock paper and foam. I think I might be able to make this thing 100% I just have to figure out what material to use for the plastic liner part,. My mock-up turned out okay i think though....

    So this weekend I finally had some free time to paint, and I got started with sanding and priming my EE-3 kit. Rubber barrel from Stormrider and the rest in part of a kit from Sidewinder. 20140817_162239-jpg
    Next, I plan on installing the helmet visor.

    Coming along nicely Lance! Gotta just be the picture, but it makes it look like the shoes are huge!
    Looks like it could use a little more dirtying up, but I hear the pictures always make the weathering appear more subtle.

    Yeah the shoes are size 12, but they are a bit closer to the camera at that angle. This picture was pre-flak weathering, which is being weathered along with the spats and utility belt/pouches as i type. Thank you for the feedback. It is great to have more eyes than my own on this!

    Weathering looks like something that will take patience I love these pics including the lighting. I also want to make sure my dents, scratches weathering look like weathering and not like those bullethole stickers or cartoony. Good work Mr Dick jones! Im so happy i found this sight, When i was little I imagined of making my own Fett Costume. Back then it consisted of a milk crate Bike helmet and a Foam gun. Somehow it was my best first build! :P

    I know it has been awhile since my last update. I am about 98% done. I have to weather a few things yet and install a servo and liner in my helmet. This weekend I plan to try everything on for the very first time! Here's what I have so far...

    So I finally got around to installing my SalamanderKing Servo kit...
    First i had to figure out how to mount the servo. I used clay and built up a platform to mount the servo to. i later coated the clay parts with E-90 2-part epoxy...
    20141213_160738-jpg
    I also got my Evilboy fans installed as well, 2 years later,

    20141215_171324-jpg

    To attach the stalk to the servo post, i used a tap and drill set like in many previous installs before me..
    20141215_171654-jpg
    I installed the remote part in the flamethrower housing and used velcro to close the bottom for easy access.

    I am not sure why the photos are squished and sideways..

    Nice fan install, the only comment I would make is the fans look like they will be right next to your ears. While they are pretty quiet, you might want them behind your ears.
