Progress on the ears!
I also sanded that lower ear and painted it gray. No pictures of that since it's just gray.
Now I would like to introduce a segment called...
(We're trying to figure out a better name)
What is Accuracy Tips?
Accuracy Tips is the place where I discuss mildly interesting at best, completely worthless at worst details about Boba Fett that I feel a lot of people often overlook.
When will you be doing Accuracy Tips?
Whenever the tip is relevant to my build and what I'm working on at the moment.
Why should I care?
This is an opportunity to discuss ways we can all develop our skills and knowledge about Boba Fett, which is like the entire point of these forums...?
Ok, so for today's Accuracy Tip... Missed Paint
If you were ever in doubt that this costume was made on short notice, I present you this...
Here's a better photo from the Art of Star Wars in 2002
This is a spot of missed paint at the back of the ear. The funny thing is that the gray is actually primer, which means they primed the ear pieces, painted them tan, then realized they missed a spot and proceeded to do nothing about it at all.
This one is really simple to replicate, I just shot the back with gray primer before painting the rest tan, making sure not to touch that part.
And thus concludes today's Accuracy Tip.
