The 1994 SCREAMIN' vinyl Fett model kit - Beginning build.

I suppose this is sort of a "costume", in that it's a whole Fett build? : )
Well, if the godz decide to move it, that's cool.
But here it is...construction on the old 1994 SCREAMIN' Prod Ltd BOBA FETT vinyl model.
In the interim between real Fett helm paint jobs, a buddy of mine "gave" this to me to do as a project, since he had it all this time and never did anything with it!
Keeps my Fett painting chops up, plus something new in a mini scale to test out.
I've seen lots of these, and other minis and busts, and no one really ever went to screen accurate lengths on these. (correct colors, scheme, etc).
To start, all pieces have been cut from their bases, and the excess molding vinyl had been cut off.
What a severe P.I.T.A. THAT was, I'll tell ya!
Idk who the noodleheads were that designed up that method of making parts for a vinyl model!

Anyway, all washed, dried, and of course I'm tackling the helm first.
Primer already added, sanded, and the silver base coat is drying.
Will test out between Tamiya USAF Olive Drab, or Krylon Italian Olive for final "Fett green" , tomorrow.

This looks like fun, stay tuned!

Taped and ready for the upper cheeks.
Navy with light black mist on top.
Upper cheeks done.
A little tape pull off on the line on the left cheek, but all is well, as it gets silver scuff damage right there later anyway, so...no biggie.

Ok.
All base colors are applied and the surface weathering and damage painting has begun.
My Hasbro Black Series Return of the Jedi Fett paint up looming in the background monitor for paint reference.
Stopping here for the night.
Just wanted to get some weathering on to get it going.
Will most likely attack more of this over the weekend.

Well....progress so far!
Got all base colors, silver damaging, detail colors, and some light fabric weathering done as per ROTJ ,even though the kit is an ESB design.
Some final pin point coloring , weathering and details to come, and applying the Fett decals that came with the kit, are to come later, along with the cloth cape.
Next few days will be building painting and adding the nozzles and rocket head on the backpack, and adding the plastic tubing for the flame thrower gauntlet, the whistling birds rocket launcher on the wrist, and the pouches around the beltline, ( but that's LATER, when the torso is attached to the legs.)
And most importantly, the helmet is complete.
I will be matte finishing everything at the final end.
Then I gotta fabricate a custom base to mount him on.
I have my ideas......
