    BIKER SCOUT finished! *Kinda pic intensive*

    Hey guys! I finished my Biker Scout (for the most part heh). Alls it needs is the lil wraps around the shoulder joints and I need better gloves but it is done. It turned out good i think. Some adjustments need made. Tell me what you think! Any constructive criticism is welcomed





































    Thanks for looking!

    This is how a biker scout should look like. Nicely weathered.

    For a bit atleast I hope I didn't get to hold onto my Fett for very lng at all... That made me terribly sad... There is no other costume I want more than ESB Fett so once I start building Fett... there is a good chance this one will go to help fund that costume.

    I love it when people make their Scouts look like they've been doing some work!
    Weathered is the only way to go with a Scout and yours has just the right amount.
    Great job!

    The weathering is phenomenal. I like the effect of the top of the helmet. Looks like carbon.

    after the first few posts i thought i'd be the first one to comment on the weathering. then i kept reading lol. i've never been a fan of polished bright white tb's but the lightly weathered ones look great! very nice job. i can't say i'm up to specs on the proper gloves and i'm sure if i looked against screen shots i could see your issue with your but, as it stands, you look like you should be on set. you sjhould be proud!

    Wow!! That looks incredible! May I ask what parts you used for this build, helmet, armour etc? Thanks for sharing and I also agree the weathering and finishing is spot on!

    Re: BIKER SCOUT finished! *Kinda pic intensive*

    Thanks for all the wonderful compliments guys!

    Here are the parts as asked by HeadlessHunter

    Helmet: MLCv3
    Armor: SC
    Cumberbund, Vest, and pouches: LadySewForUs (Yes, our amazing LSFU here does Bikerscout stuff and it is AMAZING!!!!!!!!! Strongly recommend her work to any Fett or Biker)
    Boots: Made by Ryan from my garrison
    Flightsuit: Forget the make of it... it was a $40ish flightsuit
    Blaster: painted up Kenner
    Gloves: JCW

    Things I am going to upgrade, my gloves... I want to upgrade them to the real Esprit gloves if I can or the SA gloves. Possibly the undersuit, I may get a new one but regardless I am going to put the suede and flap on my suit.

    Everything was assembled and weathered by me, got it all in kit form. I love weathering armor. It is sooo much fun! Weathering Fett was fun too! If there was a market out there to weather armor/props for people I'd maybe take up a task or two.

    Thanks again for all the compliments!

    You know, as much as a tiruly mpressive sight a large mass of gleaming white Stormtroopers look, I've always loved how some of the regular TK's in the films have slight scuffs and blemishes.
    Your paintjob here maybe just a bit more than required pushing it almost into the realm of a Sandtrooper, but I bet you'd do a great ESB/ROTJ trooper.

    Again, though great work!

    I think the weathering of a scout is a little in the hands of the owner. I think in the flims a lot of the weathering was washed out. You can see in some of the shots when they are going through the woods and the light is very minimal, they look MUCH dirtier. My friend went to some star wars concert where they had a screen used biker helmet and she took a picture and it too was even dirtier than my helmet. I wanted to go for that look of "I'm wearing bright white armor, running through the woods all day" look. scuffing up against trees, kneeling in dirt, getting wind or streak marks from going fast on my speeder. Try and add a sense of realism to the costume. I wanna be that scout vader pats on the back and says "good job buddy, now go clean your armor" haha

    This is an incredible scout! Love all that weathering. I saw the SW in Concert helmet also and the level of wear on this is right up there with it.
