    Gauntlet Hose Attachment Question: How do I go about attaching my hoses to the right gauntlet? The whipcord housing has an extension shaft to fasten to (the hose fits loosely over it, but I can make up the difference with something), the other ones though, don’t have the same extensions... All...

    DStep’s ROTJ WIP build

    Thanks DStep , I’m trying to focus on details where I can cause I think that’s what makes the costume what it is! I have Fettpride everything, so I’ll be going through the same scaling exercise as you did. Thanks for the info!!!

    Well, it appears to be a successful technique! How was the scaling for you of the stencils...? Did you print them at 100% for bobamaker?

    The armor looks fantastic! Very well done, and I'm hoping I can do mine justice using rattlecans as well! How are you adding the fine, like, really fine scratches on the armor? What about the shading; is that done with an airbrush?

    GAUNTLETS: Let me preface this by saying I have absolutely NO experience with an airbrush. I bought the thing from Harbor Freight many years ago, and dusted it off recently to add some shadowing and depth to my freshly painted gauntlets. All in all, it wasn’t too bad of an experience. Ratios...

    GAUNTLETS: Big weekend on the boba build front. After marking out the damage, I had my first experience with Humbrol masking fluid. It worked OK. I had purchased some fine, and super-fine application brushes from hobby lobby that seemed to do the trick! I also utilized my fineline masking...

    Not a MAJOR update, but I've spent the last few nights marking out the damage on the left and right gauntlets. I will post photos this weekend of progress on that front. I recently switched gears back to the helmet to get the RF wired up, and the lights installed. I also temporarily installed...

    Hey! No problem at all! I used 3/4” white elastic (as noted in the CRL), and for the snaps I used 5/8” heavy duty snaps, by Dritz. Picked them up at Walmart, but any craft store has them!

    Which Reference Images...?

    bh19812 your thread was one of the ones that started me thinking about it. Actually, it was a comment/ question from you on the build thread of tennantlim and I don’t think anyone answered, hahahaha! Thanks for the info!!!

    Which Reference Images...?

    Hey everyone! I am in the process of my ROTJ Hero Build (BoochmaN) and I’m about to start weathering my gauntlets. Question is, which reference images in the library should I be, well, referencing...? I’ve heard that some of the displays (MOM) reflect more of the “SE” damage, while others are...

    Bounced around a little bit today (still waiting for my fineline masking fluid to arrive). I ended up installing the lights in the rangefinder - they’re a super tight fit. I then enlarged the mounting hole on the hollow stalk so that it fits snug over the servo shaft - next step is to dry fit...

    For Sale Foam helmet liners

    Might be a dumb question, but has anyone installed these in their lid along with fans, servo, etc....? Just curious how it looks and feels? Sounds like the liners can be trimmed around items, but wasn’t sure how much it affected the overall look! Beautiful pieces, btw!!!
