ManjiBR,
Looks nice! I would suggest that you spray a dull coat onto your armor parts so they are not so shiny.

Also, why did you glue white shoes on Boba's helmet??
Everyone knows Boba Fett has green shoes glued to his helmet!! :lol:

I was joking about the shoes. It's hard to keep the helmet from rolling around. ;)

There are a lot of different kinds of sprays to dull the finish. On my projects, I usually use "Testors Dullcote." But I have also used sprays by Tamiya and Krylon. You could try searching for clear "matte" spray or "flat" spray.

I'd use krylon crystal clear for the dull coat. If you used acrylic on your stuff and hit it with a laquer or enamel dull coat it'd destroy your paint.
