    Repainted MR Boba EE-3 Blaster

    I received a commission from a customer to repaint his Master Replicas Boba Fett EE-3.
    he did not like the Mass-produced look of the MR
    so...
    He paid me to paint his $500 collectible , rendering it uncollectible
    here's how it started

    here it is primered;

    and here it is finished;

    not much of a difference, I admit
    but it doesn't look like it came off the assembly line now

    BTW- this is what the real one looks like;

    I went for that basic look , but a klittle more "real world"
    LMK what you guys think

    I know this is random... but does that tag say "Boba Fett's blaster The Empire Strikes Back"? Correct me if I am wrong, but that is certainly the ROTJ blaster, am I right?

    Anyway, haha... really weird he wanted his MR repainted, but I must say, you rocked it! It looks AWESOME!

    Awesome work!

    Every subtle detail is an improvement, yet still retains that MR quality.

    Can you make it weigh less? :

    with boba being such a weapon loving guy, why the heck did he let his blaster get all rusty?

    Or does he just like dirty things?

    Looks excellent by the way!
