    Nice work there...how did you attach the thigh holsters to the suit ?... are they just on velcro or do you fit a strap round your leg inside the flightsuit?...Im thinking due to the weight / presence of a gun .

    I'll get a pic of it later but I essentially added 2 strips to the inside V area of the thigh armour. This is enough to hold it in place without the strapping but the strapping is in all reference pics so I put it there as well.

    I used chalk pastels for the weathering but my video will explain the whole process. Getting it as close to the animation as possible was my priority. I'm a graphic designer/fine artist so I'm a perfectionist when it comes to paint/colour/effects. I'll do a video tutorial once this weekend is over (being May the 4th and all) we have a major event on and I'm doing all my costume clean-ups/repairs/inspections so they look snazzy for the public.

    Thanks guys! I've got a few pics from the troop today (more tomorrow) ill definitely upload them.

    Unfortunately I'll probably never bring this one overseas as she's quite precious to me (and cost me a months pay all up).

    That turned out perfect.... like Bo Katan just walked out of my computer screen.
    that paint work is stunning....... keep up the great work! is there a video or website where i can find something about the metal effect you did? i really like how it's Clone Wars-ey ( can't say it better , my bad ).
    Thanks!

    Thank you. I got new gauntlets yesterday which I'll video my weathering technique so you can check it out.
    I'm an artist/graphic designer so I usually go way overboard when detailing things
