Bounty Hunters? We don't need those scum...
Last month, I placed a new F/S thread in the Cargo Hold for anyone interested in becoming Zuckuss. Yes, that's right, one of the 5 other Bounty Hunters that was present in Vader's Star Destroyer bridge. However, what started out as a For Sale thread, has digressed a little with the ongoing work being done by moi on his suit's built and has WIP pics in the thread. So rather than digress too much from the original thread, I decided that it would be a lot more appropriate to have it posted here.
With that said, here is the story... The initial suit was conceived, sculpted, created and built for my bud who's looking to join the 501st. Plaster molds were created from the clay sculpts and once finished, sat unused till recently...
So here it is... Today's work progress on the 'belt' and 'V' harness:-
Handstitching the nylon for the slide loop:
We decided to go with craft form for the belt as we have a lot of it here and it's easily painted. Due to the thickness of the belt, I decided to use 2 nylon belts to 'support' the craft foam belt:
For the 'V' straps across the chest, over the shoulders and down the back, I used just one nylon strap:
FYI, these nylon straps will be glued down to the craft foam.
Stitching the 'V' straps onto the front waist belt:
Prep for glueing down the straps...
The rear pouch will be glued down half partially, with the other half providing a 'cover' to hide the plastic rear buckles:
More to follow...
Work that was done over the past 2 weeks from before:
Mask with 'oxy' bottle:
Side profiles of the painted mask and 'mouthpiece' attachment:
Backpack and attachment clips fiberglassed in before painting:
