So the braids attached under the shoulder part of the vest?
Everything looks great
Love doing the masking, especially pulling it off.
The braids go in the space between the shoulder bell and collar. Will try to find my reference picture and edit post.

Sorry, my bad typing. I mean, where do you attach them to with the fishing line?
Gotcha. I wrapped the fishing line around the group of braids to hold them together. This also gave room for the pin to be fed through from the underside. Hope that clarifies. :)

Shoulder bell base paint done. Waiting to dry so can peel off mask and then do highlights. First bit I have airbrushed rather than rattle can/hand painted.

Been working on a CRL check list to help with checking details. Over coming week will photograph bits to add to checklist.

Outlines and mustard stripping done. Decal on and will be weathered once other paints dried.
The RotJ Mytho is my favourite itteration (Maybe Jaster Mereels decal is better still, but thats from the Expanded Universe obviously)! One of my favourite details on the RotJ!

Lazerjock You're right, there seems to be a RotJ craze right now. Barely any ESB or SE WIPs that I noticed. ESB is still my favourite, but the more I see of the RotJ stuff, the more I appretiate it, to be honest. I do like the somewhat darker shade of green. My dream Fett though would probably an ESB base with RotJ Jetpack and SE helmet. Obviously the RotJ shoulder decal :D

MinaFett I like your progress! The shade of yello looks good to my untrained eyes.

I personally like the ESB helmet the best. Something about the taper it has. I wonder if anyone ever did a mix mash costume with all of their favorite pieces. It wouldn't make sense to anyone but the owner, but who cares.

I guess some of the cheap Halloween costumes are like that, but that is more ignorance I think.

For me I love the colour scheme and mythosaur for ROTJ. Also ROTJ has always been my favourite from the original trilogy. Brings back fond family memories of sitting and watching the film on Beta.

I sanded back my collar piece and shall re prime it tomorrow. 2 and a half hours of sanding here.

Also working on the FP rubber knees. I need to sand and repaint as the paint is peeling and to match my new bells. I can see this going to take a while lol.
