I have always loved my FP armor & it is amoung my most cherished things that i own. but there were some things about it that i felt needed dome changes. after ALOT of time looking at every detailed photo of the ESB chest armor i desided to modify my armor. I have currently only moded 3 of the 4 chest armor peices the next peice just needs the edges to be sharpened but the three that are in the raw white fiberglass have all had alot of reshaping to them. especialy the left (its on the right in the pics but its the left when its worn) chest plate. i ended up filling in both dents with bondo & reshaped them. the smaller dent is now a deep (way smaller) goudge instead of a real dent. the other dent is alittle bigger & has a really rough & deepness to it. i know the pics look like **** but its the best i could do for now. im pretty satisfyed with the left peice now. in adition to the dents i redid the slots for the lights and sanded the inner sides to a sharper edge. after looking at the ESB photos for a wile i felt they were of a much sharper shape on the edges thatn the ROTJ. the abdomen plates dents have also been reworked but not all that much. they are alittle bigger than they were before. the real thing im proud of with this peice is the slight bend inwards on the top left angle. if ya look hard at some of the pics it has an inward bend to it. this along with the next peices edges were also sharpened. & the final peice i have modifyed was the dimond. its shape has been pretty much been reworked completly so it has a sharper/longer end to it & the oposite side has a more blunt end to it. . ill be painting this set again once ive finnished moding the last peice. ive also aded a picture of what my armor looked like before i made these changes. ignor the sholder bells they are pretty much trash. they got broken in half before DC last year & are to far gone to fix.
so tell me what you guys think of the changes ive made. ill prolly get coments like ''what!? are you insane!? why would you do this to armor thats so hard to get!?'' or somthing along those lines
:fettesb you guys coming to the museum of science in boston will get to see this set close up. on the 10th
