Title: Getting more details done and fittment issues fixed. (title change)
Post by: Lynn TXP 0369 on Oct 17, 2017, 10:59 AM
I finally fixed my girth belt fitment issues that plagued my suit for a bit now. I also got my last bit of armor done that I had kicking around for a year now. I finally got my new RKD back plate and RKD kidney plate done, fitted, and painted.

Thanks!! It was a much needed fix! My girth belt was all over the place and kept dropping low the last time I trooped a few weeks ago. Plus I like the detail of the kidney plate on the back as well. I feel it is a needed detail to complete the look of the back end.

I added another custom made Wookie braid. I fixed up my main belt some more that needed to be addressed. I got the white span section fixed to brown so it wasn't so obvious white, added real leather straps for the belt ties instead of white shoe laces. I dyed the pouches tan to offset the jumpsuit.

A few more little subtle tweaks are now done that will make a big overall difference in look and appearance to my suit.

I got my collar studs painted finally. I also took some time last night and had the kids help me with refitting my Jet Pack and getting it to sit higher, No more droopy jet pack. I hope.

Thanks! Man do they ever!! Most "normal" people would never notice the subtle details, but it makes for a better over all look. I got that braid by having my daughter braid it from a witch wig that I got a Walmart for $3.

Thanks!! Now I'm waiting on my MOW ROTJ gauntlets. The ones I have now are from Richie's Armor and they seem and look a bit small when I look at them in the pics especially looking at pics of what I used to have, so these will go to my boy who will be working on his Mando when he gets more parts.

Nice Clean work

I worry that MOWs right gauntlet may be too small for you. If it's an issue, PM me.

Do you mean length wise, or around the arm? I had to lengthen my currant one as I felt is was too short.

Around the arm. It's gonna be TIGHT unless his new versions are larger.

He mentioned in his eBay ad they a newer design and are bigger around the arm now.
Thanks for the heads up!

I was into this when it was only Mark Bradley and Richie's armor in the armor making game. I had almost every incarnation of his armor in the past from '00-'03.

I had some of Bradley's stuff wayyyyy back when I was young...er.  I'll never forget thinking how superior it all was to scratchbuilding. We've all come a long way since the early 2000s...

Mystery recast I think. Definitely sure about the recasted part. Quality was lacking. I still have 2 of them in a box somewhere. I keep them around for nostalgic purposes.
