    Hey man! Thanks I just saw your post! I’ll see if I can adapt something similar to it

    Haha, thanks Lou! Not many can say they look like an ACTION FIGURE ;)

    Tamiya Medium Blue came in last night...according to the Floquil chart it was the match to the blue that was used on my JP. I put it on the stabilizer and thought it was a good match but wanted to see it in the sun. Took it out today and it wasn’t an exact match but pretty damn close, so I sprayed some matte clear on it and took some thinner to my thrusters to take off some of the excess black I sprayed on it

    The stab looks good man, Id work on the beacon next like we talked about and I see what you mean about the black on the thrusters... another thing you can do to church it up would be some thinned down flat red in the metal greebs on the thrusters! And weather the metal bits with some fullers earth or something dusty...theyre really clean.

    Damn! I forgot about the beacon, though were the beacons the same from promo to Aosw? Maybe it’s just the picture that makes it seem more black? the thruster greebs are empty for the promo shoot version, not sure about the RoTJ SE. I guess technically I need to take the Greeble off the left thruster on the left to match the promo. The left inside greeble is pretty clean compared to the right which has a dark gray tint too. I was thinking about misting flat black on the right and just scratching the left to dull it down maybe. Something around those lines

    Heyoo my fellow Hunters!

    I took a break working on Fett since the troop. Though, with the day off I decided to finish up the Jetpack

    Colored the beacon and weathered it
    Colored the right Middle greeblie to a dark grey to match visual reference
    Took the outer greeblie off the Left thrust to match visual reference

    Here are some pictures:

    Add some weathering inside the metal greebs on the thrusters maybe like a light wash.... theyre too shiny and bright

    I think I am going to go over the left one with a ghost gray color that I have..itll make it look like its resin casted. The other one I used a Dark grey with a drop of white, I thought it came out good in comparison to the Visual reference.

    Alright so I toyed the idea of just painting the greeblie...I think the lighting is making the grey look lighter then it really is. I was trying to go for a more resin look.

    Heres what I got!

    Thanks man! It’s perfect to carry my helmet around to troops

    After applying the ghost gray to the left middle greeblie...I thought it was too light. So I misted a couple coats of flat black rattle can to make it darker but not overbearing as the right middle greeblies is seen as a darker grey then the left via visual reference for the PROMO shoot pack.

    I am pretty happy with how it turned out and am pretty confident that the JP is near completion ( going to paint the back metal hooks ).

    Alright, so with anything fett we look to better our costumes and make them more accurate. I’ve been slowly transitioning my costume and heading toward the Mandorian Merc approval for SE. One of the major things I wanted to change was my knees, I was missing the left dent. So I decided to commission Bobamaker for his V3 knees. Well, I got them in today and oh my my my they are beautiful. (For MMC, the left elastic has to be yellow in color)
