    SUPER TROOPER WIP!

    Hey guys- Well after recieving my new FP budget from ASOK, and essentially seeing this shot of the glossy super trooper, I decided to take a stab at it myself. Theres just something about this classy, non-weathered lid that really catches my eye. Also, notice how the red/blue arrows mirror that of the ROTJ fett. Anyhow, below are some pics post dremmeling, sanding, tad of puddy (from dremmeling ; ), and the second coat of primer. This afternoon I plan to hit the first coat of gloss white (rustoleum). Ill keep you guys updated as I progress through this WIP.

    The arrows are on the same sides as ROTJ bud

    I think he means "mirror" in the sense of 'copy' like the sense of 'mirrored' hard drive is not actually a reversed image or enantiomer of the original byte order.

    Re: SUPER TROOPER WIP!

    Hey guys- : ), yes I meant mirrored as in "matches"..mainly referring to the colors (red and blue). I thought it was a nice suttle touch. Although there seems to be a couple different versions in the gallery, I really liked the image I posted and will use this and one other as a reference. Correct me if im wrong but the RF seems to be the same as ESB?
    Thanks guys

    Make sure you the left ear white most people do it silver which is wrong the only parts showing metal are on the right ear set up on the same place that are expossed metal ESB,
    and the green arrow is almost green but it is almost black

    Re: SUPER TROOPER WIP!

    The one you posted is pretty good, but there are better ones around ,
    and the arrows, right is red and left is black green, and the borden is bare metal

    Re: SUPER TROOPER WIP!

    Thanks BG- Ya, ive seen some pics w/ the borden bare metal, and some white...Ill probablly do that topically along w/ the arrows. Many of the pics in the gallery are black and white which makes it difficult to decipher the small details.
    Thanks man

    Re: SUPER TROOPER WIP!

    No problem , its very likley that all the arows were that same colours there for you can use the PP2 and ROTJ for the colour refrence for them and seeing as the bordens are all bare metal it makes sense ,

    Re: SUPER TROOPER WIP!

    Hey guys- What are your thoughts on weathering the super trooper up a bit? Maybe some smoked edges, as well as crevaces etc? Ive been kicking around the idea.

    Re: SUPER TROOPER WIP!

    B - Yes, we definitely have to get together. Are you talking about SDCC? or LB? I'm going to attempt LB, but I think SD is SOLD OUT. I'm not sure. I'll look into it and let you know. Now, in regards to weathering.....I would say, "no." Since I don't think it ever saw any screen time, weathering would completely dimenish the accuracy. With that being said, it's your build and you gotta go where the feeling takes you! Either way, it's gonna look awesome!

    Re: SUPER TROOPER WIP!

    Hey all- Just an update. I had a very minor one day setbck as I wasnt happy w/ a couple little flaws that were slightly visible.. one on the brow, and one on the right lower ear. With some great tutleage from obro and deadland I was able to perservere! I wet sanded the heck out of those spots w/ 800 and walah..near perfect : )!!! Thanks so much guys..I will resume w/ another coat of gloss white tomorrow.
    Once I complete this does anyone know how to get that little extra shine thats needed???
    Thanks
    B
