Nice job Mike and very sorry to hear about your nan.
Don't give up on your Fett. It will come to be soon enough. I'm still working on mine;-)

Sorry to hear about your loss bro.

The knees are looking good. If you're not completely satisfied with them, try adding a little bondo to give them curves, shape, etc. It's like playing with mud except that it dries really really quickly, and you can sand on it once it's dry. I handmade my first set of knees in a similar fashion as yours.

Keep up the good work. It's a nice tribute to your nan already.

looks pretty good for the first one. It's true with what TK-938 said about wizardoflight. Wish those plans were around during the beginning. :D

First things to consider when looking at buckets are how much $$ do you have to spend and how tall are you? Different buckets for different pocket sizes and body sizes. :)

I have a BKBT (bigkidsbiggertoys) Jango and love it. My head is 7 3/4 inches and it fits.

Sorry for your loss.


Why not post a pic of the Vader. I'd like to see it because that was my 1st stand-up I wanted to make, but I went with Boba instead.(y) (y)
