    The make is Authentic Props I just got it today, minus the upper back, haha. I sent AP an e-mail asking him to give me the missing piece.

    nice! i love the ESB suit. i had started to go that route with my first TK, but ended up selling it. the 2nd was going to be ESB, but i decided sort of spur of the moment to make it a sandtrooper instead.

    Incidentally, if the TK is your "true love", I"d be more than happy to take your false love ESB Fett off your hands.

    Re: My True Love. ESB Stormtrooper WIP

    I decided to start on my helmet today. I trimmed the thighs last night but pics will come later.

    For the inside of the helmet, I coated it with Plasti-Dip, what you coat tools with, it gave the inside a fantastic rubbery finish. After I let that dry overnight, I started trimming out the eyes, I made sure to use a brand new razor blade trimming them out, I believe I captured the ESB look pretty well.

    You won't believe how hard it was to get this suit done, especially when FettPride is taunting us with gauntlets, helmets, and armour, haha.

    Exactly what I am thinking of doing with both the TE2 I just bought and with my TM when I get it.

    Great start, Andy! Are you going to use a welder shield or acetate for the lenses? I'm torn between accuracy (acetate) and more practical and durable (shield)...

    I bought what ever Smitty sells, haha. I bought Shade 3 and Shade 5, that way I can have them velcroed in, and switch them out depending on whether the event is inside or outside.
