    /Showoff Fett Factory 4 Real

    So working on a few lids here, and a few things of my own... Dlx9r sent me a FP Premium lid that was damaged by the previous owner I did a little repair work and re-enforcement at the same time. It was cracked pretty bad...fixed it up primed it added my own damage primed and started on the paint. There are commando8 ears RF stalk on the way for this guy....also added some dental files i got from Art the plastic ones theyre great for a pinch Dlx9r is waiting for the real ones



    Skyminer got ahold of a FPH which is a fantastic Sculpt as well...it however doesnt have the fantastic MQ1 Sculpted in like the premium so I added the MQ1 cast I had and some plastic so it would be accurately portrayed...and the duct tape to match...Both going ROTJ! I love it....



    Then a third ROTJ lid to be showed up from Yodakiller today, it has the commando8 ears FANTASTIC pieces awesome for ROTJ as the ears are nearly paint free...paint looks good on the resin but the metal just make it amazing, he also sent along his RF stalk with the RF lights from salamanderking i think? A REAL MQ1 to put in there also! Im stoked about this one... hes got one of Mojos bordens to put in there as well gonna be epic...


    ONTO THE PICS

    Some great work on display. It's great getting to see some of the photos on a larger format. I think that there will be some very happy people when their helmets come in/


    I wonder, wherever did you get such a fantastic name for such a fantastic thread .

    Re: /Showoff Fett Factory 4 Real

    Been working on a set of stormriders ESB blasters this weekend and finished up yodakillers helmet for him
    the ESB EE3 is awesome I love the wood stock stormrider sends with it, got a little bit more to do on it but its almost done...the Pulce is awesome everything just screws together little bit of prep work for it. The EE3 requires a bit more work than the Pulce as there is the slide needs to be ground out, and I made a setup to where I can split it in half using a T bolt setup. Also added the bolts on the front scope mount havent seen anyone do this before...its in pics from ESB...

    the slide is cast into the barrel assembly it needs to be cut out so that the gun can be put together correctly, in theory it would slide forward when the rifle was closed but cant since its cast into the barrel not a separate part
