    Oct 23, 2014, 3:06 PM - A new Boushh stuff #1

    Hi my friends,

    now it's time to represent you my WIP (not already finished) of this wonderful weapon. I did my researches since 4 years to find accurate parts to build the boushh stuff.
    Most WIPs in the web used parts which i can't buy here in Germany. The second issue of the long research time were the references out of the movie or out of the fed WIPs.
    It's very difficult to see which parts were used for the original stuff.

    BUT: now we live in the 21h century and the 3-D printing is the new industrial revolution (believe me).
    One of the pioneers of 3-D printing star wars parts is Mr. tool guy, here in our wonderful web place. He designed the most accurate kit for the Boushh stuff and i think i was one of the
    first buyers here in Europe. And that's why i start this WIP.

    A big brown box arrived (no armor inside LOL)


    Just a view peaces of plastic


    A short test fitting


    Now the stuff question...out of plastic or out of metal. I decided to use aluminium for the better strength


    Cutting the la-stuff in the middle for better transportation and put a wooden stick as an adapter




    And a woodenpart in the bottom of the stuff (comes later again)


    Now sanding the parts


    And some drilling





    And fitting some of the parts (thats easy!)







    Before the paint job starts it's washing time (thats important!)


    Sanding the aluminium stuff and prime it with metal primer



    Now the first coat. I decided to use silver metal. First to make some "special" effects and second: this kind of color is thicker than normal spray can color



    Welcome in my jungle:-)




    Now the "special" effect


    And the result after the first, second, third coat of black




    Two jobs


    Now screwing the lower rocket onto the main body



    The bottom section is very accurate but out of plastic. This part crack immediately so i decided to replace it with a door rubber stopper with some modding



    to place the stopper into the aluminium stuff i put some fiber glass bondo into the bottom of the stuff



    After checking the references again and again i think that the stuff isn't all black. It seems to be (for me) that there is a little bit silver or something like that.
    And look to Boushh... a used and very strong weathered armor. So i decided to add some mixture of that colors


    And the final result looks better than on the pictures








    And now a side by side comparison about the size of this amazing kit

    UUUPPPSSSSS....wrong game;-)




    so this was the first part of the Boushh stuff WIP. i hope you liked it and i hope my wife likes here stuff too......

    Move along and cheers,
    Felice
