It's all good! Just trying to help out. I'm sure "T" would be glad to help. I think I've got a few pics of his pack, I'll post them if I find them..
Thanks Don. I’ve seen the post before (of the side by side). For whatever reason I didn’t revisit his conversion thread. Pretty bummed I’m going to have to take this down and start over.
I’d like to confirm with tennantlim on the colors too - to me, even in his post, I see both silver and white damage. The same surfaces have the same light hitting them and I see a difference in color.
Not trying to avoid repainting this or being combative; just want to make sure it’s right this time...hahaha!
hvacdon The paintwork in the photo you shared actually shows the SE version beautifully painted by Bobamaker. The ROTJ Hero version has significantly less weathering so I've had to paint over it (painfully ) to convert the version. Here's my jetpack in its current state;
Well if it isn't mr. silver lining...hahahahahaha! JK. Your input & guidance is much appreciated - trust me! I pretty much knew it would need to be a repaint, but it appears to be just certain sections, and you're right - I've only just started and done the blue. The painting is not bad, but the masking, oh the masking!hvacdon The paintwork in the photo you shared actually shows the SE version beautifully painted by Bobamaker.

If you view the images in their respective maximum resolutions (download them from Media), You can kinda make out the silvers and whites. The upside to doing it over at this point is you haven't completed the entire process, so there's less to lose.
All the best!
Man you look incredible! So badass!FLIGHT SUIT:
I received a package today from Arkady - you might remember that I sent my flightsuit back to her for some tailoring, as well as to incorporate the neck seal into the suit.
My friends, Carole did not disappoint. This fits perfect, and once I sew some Velcro on for the knees and the cod/kidney, it should be good to begin weathering!
I tried it on, along with some other parts of the costume - I must say it’s the first time it actually felt like Fett; pretty cool! I started to trim the foam inside my gauntlets too, as I have issues closing them cause they’re “overstuffed”...
Also, I sanded my Jetpack, and laid down the silver base coat (again). I’m thinking I may paint the white topically now too! View attachment 191318 View attachment 191319
This^^Hey Booch, you might let the paint set up for at least a week or more before you try masking again...
