    It will either be given to my friend Jen, or it will become the garrison's community suit.

    Helmet is just about done! I just need to paint the frown, vocoder, ears, add pinstriping around the ears, install the lenses, and install the frown mesh. Then I'm all done with this majour piece of the puzzle which is the ESB Stormtrooper!!

    Riveting on whitearmor.net. However, he will no longer be making them because they are too time consuming.

    Nice ESB lid you have there Andy...
    Thats what I'll be painting mine, is that Plasti-Dip an American product? I really like the effect it has.

    Plasti-dip, I'm not sure if it's a strictly American product. Head over to your equivalent of Home Depot or Lowes, and check in their spraypaint aisle. There should be some spray product used to give a rubber coating to tools.

    Re: My True Love. ESB Stormtrooper WIP

    The frown, ears, and vocoder have been painted. All that I need to do to the helmet now are to paint the stripes on the ears, install the lenses, and install the frown mesh. After this comes pics of the armour The armour is about 90% trimmed, I just need to first start learning to work with this modeling iron!!

    Re: My True Love. ESB Stormtrooper WIP

    My canvas belt has arrived. Only problem is that it is white, not the off-white which I requested. No problem though, I can fix this through weathering



    Here is my armour at the moment, everything is trimmed except for the upper back (in the mail), the drop boxes, and the side caps to the bomb. I have begun assembling the arms too.

    AP doesn't have a website, you can contact him through e-mail.
