    BoochmaN's ROTJ WIP

    GOT YA! I mix the crap out of mine before I thin it, then mix it more. We will see how it sprays, but it seems to be what others use for Humbrol colors. These tins appear to be new (maybe newer packing) compared to my old ones. The cover of the old ones is actually colored like the paint...

    BoochmaN's ROTJ WIP

    As previously mentioned, I now plan to airbrush the balance of the Jetpack (Black, Red and shade/ shadow). I still plan to hand weather with acrylics as well! I picked up some Humbrol tins from Mega Hobby, and I’m not sure about the red...I have not tried to spray it yet, but the color...

    I totally get it, and time will tell! I mean, I’m certainly taking my time with each task that’s for sure. I’m also satisfied with the vendors I’ve selected too; incorporating a lot of the “upgraded” parts into my initial build!

    Need to buy a girth belt

    Great! Glad I can help; I'm looking forward to putting my own advice to the test too! Adam from Adamshorsesupply is probably wondering what the hell is going on with all these random girth belt purchases...:lol:

    Need to buy a girth belt

    So here is what I am doing...You want the girth to sit partially on your abdomen and partially on your cod/ kidney. I took a dimension at this location and it is 40" for me. Now, the gap has to be 3-4 inches, so take away 4" and I'm on the market for a 36" girth belt, buckle to buckle. I have...

    Many thanks, RamSkirata I have actually only been BUILDING my Boba for about a year and a half, after waiting for parts for just under 5 years! It’s crazy to even type at this point, and I just want this thing done. Many things in life are more important than this, so I’ve built at my leisure...

    Girth Belt???

    I've had the color saved in my phone for my next trips to Home Depot or Lowes, actually Lazerjock . The color that was discussed (that I have seen discussed) was a Sherwin Williams stain color (Minwax). Home Depot no longer carries Minwax, tho. Just an FYI... Its a SW Water Based Wood Stain...

    JETPACK - THE (dirty) WHITE: What to do next...? After re-painting the blue I wasn’t really sure which sections to address next, so I went with the white sections! I first taped off everything, then rattlecanned the white with an “off white”. I waiting until night time and started adding some...

    Interesting! I’ve been watching your JP build too. Incredible work and patience with the 3D printed parts. I simply cannot imagine printing the body in multiple pieces and somehow marrying the pieces together. Also, I don’t have much patience so there’s that too...hahahahaha! The CRL is...

    THE CAPE: Took a break from the Jetpack (though I painted the door with an adhesion promoter, then silver, then masked and painted it blue this weekend), and I focused on a project that I never finished; the cape plate. First I trimmed a random piece of polystyrene that I found laying around in...

    Jet Pack ROTJ Jetpack Greeblies (Found Parts)

    Hey gang! Working on my ROTJ build and I'm too busy at the moment to make jetpack progress, so I figured I would keep my ongoing search for greeblies going! Hoping someone has some leads on a few of the greeblies found below. There are a TON of threads regarding the greeblies (specifically...
