Title: Skeltis Nexalarn - Ilum Sniper
Post by: Skeltis on Oct 18, 2017, 05:00 PM
Hey all!   :)

I've decided now this kit is close enough to what I want from it and it's mostly finished.
Started it last year as a fast-to-make-modern-kit, but in the process I realised that I have too many ideas I want to implement, so I took a deep breath and proceeded with patience  :D

It was approved two months ago and recently approved as a dual-brigade Sniper/Arctic Ops specialist.

Those photos was made by awesome Nadejda "Miss Plague" Lipatova.

Cannot express how much I love your kit. Congratz on the recent pull to the brigades as well!!!
Every inch and detail on your kit seems to fair well with me, subjectively speaking.

Just an excellent job. You should be VERY proud of your work.

I'll be bookmarking this to reference back often.

Oya vod.

Thanks everyone for your kind words!

No, vod, cod is 2 mm polystyrol plates, attached to a soft underlay, I've posted templates and approximate building scheme in my wip thread, if you are interested.

Going to have to look that up. Been looking for an alternative to the Boba/Jango ones, and not all that fond of the others I've seen.

Outstanding!! You could easily walk on set/screen with that kit & put some costuming crews to shame! Do you have a link to a WIP thread? Iím just starting my build and can always use good references to draw from.
