    Re: Greetings from Sweden!

    Hi! i have been working on my boots and some more on the knee armorings. I have been weathering the boots and removed the brand sigils, the boots still need some more weathering on the sole, but this is a begining. The knee armoring was first to small on me so i had to expand it a little with plastic welding, it now looks awful but i will sanding it so they become smooth smile.gif

    here is some pictures on the progress

    Here is the photos of the gauntles that i have bonding together! they need to dry for tomorrow. they still need to be smoothed out as the knee armor needs, but now they fits my arm perfectly and need later a sort of hinging

    Hi, some of our pieces should be coming in over the next couple weeks. My girlfriend and I will be building her Bo Katan together. We're going to also do a Jawa for her so she can troop in the 501st with me during our Bo build. I think it'll take a while. Good luck on yours!

    Hi Fridam!
    I got the same boots for my costume. I am wondering how did you remove the sigils? I am having quite some problems to get rid of them... Any hint would be appreciated!
