Have you ever wished you'd done something a little Different , had you been given the Time ?


Well ,  I've been seeing that a lot with my Gear lately .
 I've taken a lot of Pictures , from several Different angles .
It's always fun to see your kit from another perspective .... However ....  :rolleyes:

I need an Overhaul ....... Big Time .... So here it Goes .


My 1600th post will Be the Start of a Make over Thread .....



Now these pics are not really for Critique value they're more so I can Visualize several looks at once .
They are mostly Gun Belt /Girth / Ammo pouch configurations so don't be too disappointed that there are no action shots ... :rolleyes:

_________________________________________________ ____________________________________

Also -
Since I'm going More Arctic , I've Decided to try one or more of the Following .

1 ) Maybe a Kama (White w/fur Trim)
2 ) Short Hooded Shrug (White , Fur , ? )
3 ) Waist long Cape . ( White , " , " )
4 ) New Flak vest . 
5 ) Cold weather Back
6 ) New Gaunts
7 ) Revising my Bucket .... Again .
8 ) New Boots .
9 ) New Flight Suit .
10 ) New Ranged Weapon .



I'll put up more pics as get um up loaded ..

Great work as always!  It certainly seems to be the small details that make the big difference.  I need to go over my kit a bit more and add some finer details.  I have a lot of ideas, I just need to write them down and then act upon them!   ;D

Thanks Ed . ......  Your Too kind ....  :D

Write those Ideas Down , then Come back to them when you have the Time
your Willing to Devote to them . That's how to maximize a concept . 

Wait till you see my new plans . 
It Should prove to be a test of my patients with my Ole ' sewing machine  ...

Okay so I've got a Question .... Well maybe it  more like I need your Guys Opinion ?

Anyway  , I'm Matching up several possibilities for the new look I putting together .
Since My kit is Supposed to be an  Extreme Cold Weather set up I looked into Canon
Hoth Snow Troopers ( The Commander ) . Their Parka or  (" Duster " as it's called) is the look I
want ...... But not exactly ......  :rolleyes:

 It's a little longer than I'm going , but the cutout front is right on perfect .
I would like to Do a Split back more like a Kama , Maybe a V ? Then trim in Fur ? Dunno yet ..

I hope I can post this link , I don't have any good pics just sketches . http://www.501st.com/databank/Costuming:TS_snowtrooper_commander

By condarward (http://profile.imageshack.us/user/condarward) at 2012-02-09



Finally ...... So Here is the Question/s  .....  ;D

 Should I go Go this route ? (a Winter Trench coat of sorts)


 Or


Should I just do a Canon Style Boba Dbl sleeve flight suit in White with a Fleece Kama ?


And If I do this ^


Should the Flak Vest be in White fleece ? or White Quilted .


or I could  :

Make the longer Sleeve ( of the Dbl flight suit) fleece .....


I know all but the Cotton will be hotter on long Troops in the Summer ......

I've got a Good Idea how I'm going to make it wearer friendly for this condition ... no worries .


But I won't do White Fleece pants ..... the look too much like pajamas ......  :laugh:

LMK what'cha think ......

Post by: Zedrin Ho'dag on Feb 10, 2012, 07:43 AM
I think that even though it's a deep freeze mando, you can still go with the standard double sleeve cannon kit.  I like the idea of the duster, it reminds me of Novall's battle trench.

As far as fleece vs quilted, I would certainly go quilted.  Fleece is going to be hard to pull off & have it still look "in universe" in my opinion.  I would go quilted, but perhaps with a different or odd pattern other than the standard diamond pattern.

Just food for thought on this one.  I remember back the Republic Commando series when they were deployed to a frozen location and their standard armor & environmental suits were enough to keep them warm.

Thanks for commenting Ed .....  8)


Winter Weight Fleece " that pills " is the Standard Move accurate Material ......  ;D
(Also heavy weight cotton/Duck cloth & Wool is 501st acceptable .)
I've seen hundreds of pics of the Same 10 or 20 shots of LFL Snowtroopers doing my research .
But I think these are some of the Best :
http://imperialarmor.net/hoth_gal.html

BTW ... I never liked the Idea of a Fleece Vest ..... :P  But I had to include it as an option ....

I think I'm going to Try working on my Original plan First , since I already have the materials for it  .......   ;D

Post by: ConDar Ward on Feb 10, 2012, 11:50 AM
So I had to see it in all White , well almost all  . :rolleyes:
Please never mind the under Vest or the Straps on the Sides .
These will be hidden under the Quilted Polar "OverVest" is what I'm calling it . ( in White )

Oh , Or on knees & shins there are No slots yet .
 Those aren't even pant legs , it's just white cotton fabric pinned in Back .

Whenever I think of a warrior etc. in a winter environment I do think trench coats etc. Like German and Allied troops during the WWII. I like the idea of the snow trooper Parka but I personally would keep the long sleeves without the double sleeve myself. It makes it look more like a jacket and less like a long sleeve shirt with another shirt on top. Also with the split back and with the slight fur trim, if done correctly, it can make the kit look rather stylish.

I also like the white there, but be sure if you go white you dirty it up. I'm sure you know; however, just in case to remind you if you're going through the snow you'll still pick up dirt etc. and your nice clean whites will darken and weather a bit. like these troopers

But it's not nearly done yet ....

Yes you can ....  ;D




It's called  Warm Waffle ?  er something like that .... anyway .

It's not real heavy , but heavy enough to look & hang right .

If I use it - :
 I will line the Bottom half of the Coat with another fabric .

I will cut back the Corners so they are Rounded (like the Snowtrooper)

& yes Weathering ........  :P

I also was fortunate enough to pick up a Set of pillow cases & a Huge Blanket
made of the Correct Fleece ( Canon LFL Snowtrooper Commander )

So I think I may do a Few Different Trench coats . Why not Right ?

Looks good, But if you're upgrading i would suggest getting a proper vest aswell. It'll help turn your kit from good to great ;) .

Hahahha   , Funny you should say that Remo , I have also purchased the Material to make a "Proper" Canon Boba Vest . (w/o) Shoulder Sleeve)
It will be in a White Quilted fabric ,  but the plates will still show up good . It's not as Stark white .

However the next time I have to put my plates on I hope to
indent the area then epoxy over them ..... we'll have to see .

I do like the look of the Keys though ....  :rolleyes:

I love the waffle weave. Rougher weaves tend to look more "real" on costumes. I was going to say to keep the double sleeve look, but with the waffle weave it doesn't really work or need it IMO.

Okay , a little set back ...... I cut my new vest a bit too low under the Arms .

I feel it looks way off balanced when the plates are on & not acceptable to me ......

So I will be re-cutting it this Afternoon ..... After I buy more Fabric that is ..... ???

Ouch!  What type of material was it?  I am sure the cost of material in no cheaper down there than it is up here.  When I am trying patterns such as that, I make the first one of cheap bargain material.  If it turns out, I move on to the desired material.  If it doesn't turn out, I have new shop rags to take my frustration out on!   ;D

Yeah it was no big Deal , but I ruined the pattern ...  :(

Got side tracked working on the Electronics & wiring for my Back pack .  It will power Both my Gaunts & Buy'ce .

I'll post some up dates soon ....... I just need another trip to Radio shack .....  ;D

Post by: ConDar Ward on Feb 13, 2012, 10:17 PM
Okay , I may get away from the Soft parts theme unless you look deeper here .....

To stay True to my Concept My Vest will need to Have "Pass throughs" for wiring & Hoses .( Both Visual and Hidden .)

The Standard Boba has the Luxury of the Hoses Disappearing up a Sleeve ..... I wish ..... jk ..
But with the New look .... not so much . Anyhow , my vest needs a few custom pockets .
So unless I know how long the Hoses , wires , attachments , etc are ,  I won't know how much slack to add to
the wire ..... You see ? ........ No ? ..... well you'll see when I get that far,  it will make more sense then .

So now I'm kinda building the whole upper half of my kit at the Same time .


It hard to tell from the pics but I did get a lot done concept wise today even though the Gaunts are basically
a complete fresh build , along with the rewiring of the Halogen lamp arms to run current to my Gaunts and Buy'ce


Left Gaunt : Toggle switch ( Power on )
                    Rocker switch (Helmet Fans)
All run through modified lamp parts .  ;D

Right Gaunt : Toggle switch (power on )
                      Rocker switch (Helmet light)
                      Rocker switch (Accessories jack)
                      Rocker switch ( ? ? ? ? )

My other pics of the Wiring didn't turn out so well ..... So no more updates on that till the morning .......  :(


But I did get 3 more flexible lamp stems re-wired ..... Woooot !
 That should be enough to finish this area of the Build .
 Now the Soldering begins ....  :-X

Please help , I need some opinions ......  ???

SnoMando
Flack Vest Color :

 I have  White (Quilted Fabric)
 I have  Off White (Quilted Fabric)
&
 I have  Black (Quilted Fabric)
I Didn't plan to use it with the Polar look but it's
again an option at this point .



The Reason I ask .....  ESB Canon Snow Troopers  &  Hoth Rebels .

Snow Troopers (Trench Coats) have a real cream almost yellowish tinge to them .....
(Which I know is Weathering & Such from my research)

Hoth Rebels have White , Cream/Off White & also Tan/Sand color mixed in their uniform .



Should I  : 

1) Stay True to the Canon look and keep within the Hoth References for Color Choice ?

2) Go with Stark White and weather it .



The more I look at my kit , the more it looks too White . ( I know it's not Weathered yet , but still )


Lets hear it ?  :P

I like the look of yer kit mate, You cant beat the weathered look though. Either way its a top kit ;)

Thanks Kel .....    8) Your Too kind .



But should what color should I make my Flak Vest out of ?  I'm Stuck .... it could go either way .

I'm just afraid that a White Vest  is going to be " Too much " White &  Off White/ Cream will look Too Yellow
against the White I already have .......aaarrrgh ....  I knew this would happen .... :-\

Try grey, It's not too dark, and keeps that monotone scheme going ;) .

If it has to be white or cream.. i say go for cream with light weathering or White with heavy weathering ;)
have to be careful you don't end up with "Yellow snow" colour  :laugh:

I would second the gray option.  There are so may shades to choose from and it will add a nice bit of contrast no matter what shade you choose

Ahhhhh .... Gray ? ! ? !   ....... :rolleyes:   


 Not a Color I gave as an option .......   , but you know , it could work well .
Thanks  Remo & Narseryc...... Now I gotta go buy a yard & a 1/2 of Grey just to see how it looks ......  :laugh:

This is Totally Why I asked ...... They (Snow Troopers) look white from a Distance or if you just see them Rushing
by on the Screen . They're not in a Very long Sequence at all so it's hard to tell , but they're a mix of colors .
(I've spent hours watching the First 20 mins of ESB over and over  + Tons of Stills ..... )

I gotta get this right before I sew any more Softs ...........  ???

At this point it's a " Believable & Canon look "   V.S.  " My Custom SnoMando "

I still have a new bottle of Rit ... in Grey  ........ I just don't want to Dye the Fabric
until the Edges are at least pre-stitched (since it's Quilted) Then I'd like to wash it .( Pre-shrink it as well )

Can I still throw a vote in? :P

I agree on it looking "too" white. So I'm with Niabi on going with the cream but, I also do like Remo's idea of using a grey too. I actually drew up a snow mando for my sister when I was trying to talk her into doing one for C6. I could PM you my picture to help give some ideas in that direction if you want since its color scheme was cream and grey?

I Finally have something to post about ......  ;D


After 2 days of staring at my kit (In several clothed stages) (Who I'm I kidding , I stare at it everyday)
Watching ESB again / and again , an pausing on the Uniforms with the Color combinations I liked , then quickly sketching them .
Pouring over Dozens of LFL stills and Concept Drawings of Hoth troopers (Both Sides of the Battle  :rolleyes:)

I finally think I've got a plan I like ......  8)  We'll see how it Turns out .


Custom Polar Trench Coat : ( Reversible  ;) )

It will have the Waffle Weave on one side and the Correct Canon Fabric on the other .(pilling polar fleece)
It will have the Same basic cutout as the Commander Trench But a little Wider (Purely for my own stylistic point of View )
 Also Mine will have a Fur Trim along the Bottom edge & up the Front . ( A Polar Military look more than Barbarian )

The Flack Vest will be made from Quilted Fabric in Oyster (Color) or a Variance of an off white .
Pretty close to the Rebel Quilted Hats ..... I can put up a pic later if you would like ....


But the Flack vest is going to be pulling off a few Tricks of it's own once I get the pattern Right .
The Shoulders need to be Cut a little Different than the Canon Boba Vest so that's what I measuring for now .



The Trench Coat is in the Hands of my Soon to be Mother-in-Law , So I'm confident in the Quality and the Fit .
We had a Fitting today and a few more later this week Hopefully . Then the Flack Vest .

She's also making me Fleece over pants for Colder weather
& I'll have Acceptable Cotton pants for Warmer weather .


The Flack Vest's Function is now a little more Complicated , so I'll post more on that as well later tonight .


Thanks for Checking it out ....

Well , it's not Good ..... I could fix it , but it wouldn't be the Same . It's taken a lot of abuse
and held up pretty well despite it all . Being one of my first Scratch builds ( & my First ohl'd Vart ) it was Destined to happen
sometime . Mostly because it had been repaired Several Times over the years ..... It will be a "Display Only" for now .
I'm a little lost ..... all my new electronics were just installed a few days ago ...... :'(

in place . Reinforcing the Cheeks today ....

 New Trench coat and Vest ready to be Modded .....  8)



I Still need to put some more Details on the Trench along with the Shoulder bells .
I think I'm going to slit the Back a little up the middle .

Vest is cut to hide the intact "paintball "vest underneath . The Quilted Vest has a Velcro closure
under the Arms . I'm almost ready to remount my plates . This should be easy enough because
the holes are already there , I just have to mark the spots on the new vest .


I'm making New Gaunt/Gloves & Boots as well ...... I try to get some concept images up .... later .... ???

This is the Trench Reversed (inside out) .... ;D
The sleeves have the Seam in the cuff so I can cover it with my Gaunts .
I'm actually liking the Canon material more than the Waffle weave stuff at the moment .
I guess we'll have to see how it looks with my new pants & Boots .... It's all about the look ...  ;)

MY Custom DL-44 Holster :
_________________________________________________ __________________________________

Anyhow ..... :-X

I figured I'd post my Holster in here since it's a Soft part .....
I should also stick it in the DL-44 Build , but this is more appropriate ... I guess .

The look I wanted was a Han Style low slung holster. But I didn't want it in leather .... :rolleyes:

A little while ago I found the perfect Drill holster for $1.50 at ReStore ....
It still needs a lot modding but , it's also a perfect fit for the DL-44 w/ scope .... WIN !

I couldn't find any belts that I liked , or that would look right ...... you know how that is , Right  ?
So I made my own out of :
 2 belts & their buckles ......   
 some Sintra ,
 a few screws & a couple of snaps .....;D

Here is what it looks like so far ....... :blank:

Thanks Guys ......


 It is still in need of a few finishing touches ..... but the Basic plan is sound .



Kel ...... If you notice the Front buckle has been marked for a left holster clip down the Road .... ;D


The Front buckle gets a Face plate so the original buckle wont be seen when it's finished .



As well my Mandoquin has a little more filler around the middle than I do these days,
so the belt is fit quite a bit tighter on me ...... it also looks better .... :D

My Belt Greeblie pouches are Drying ..... (I made formed leather ones)


More later .....Thanks for looking ... ;D

I also left the Diamond & a few Rivets out for now until I get the Chest Speaker mounted
and Wired to my Helmet ......  :kiss:

I think I'm gonna side with you and say I like the fleece side better too. Looking at the waffle side with the armor on and all just looks like long underwear to me, ya know? Maybe I'm just more attached to the canon look too. -shrug- Everything is turning out just beautiful, I love the look your going for! 8)

And I have to ask, did you sew all that yourself? :o

I'll reverse the Trench and Shoot some more pics ...... I'm liking the Fleece a lot to .....  ???


As far as the Sewing ..... No .... My soon to be Mother-in-Law helped me .....  ;D



I have some new "Snow Pants" as well , But I'm not putting them on the MandoQuin yet ..... I still have some
modding to Do to them ......  ;) I'm using a pair of White Scrubs ..... Hope it works out ......  :rolleyes:

I've also switched the Girth belt & added my first ammo belt along with my Wampa Braids & fur collar .

Hahaha  ....... That's where I got the Idea for mine ...... oh so very long ago,  I used Foam blocks to keep them light weight.
That really made them slick to make ......but they never stayed glued very long about a year ?...... something about the Foam & Vinyl broke down the Glue when it got hot out ..... .. :rolleyes: anyway it sucked making new ones all the Time .


The Wood Takes the Staples great and you never see them when their done ........

I made a Few leather ones ..... but that's tough on the Hands after about 2 hrs of Sewing ...  :laugh:

Boots and Snow pants are next .....  Then The Gloves .....

Even though the top laces have been left in some of shots of the Snowtrooper boots that I've seen , I modded it anyway .

I took the laces out & Replaced them with elastic straps . Now after getting them threaded through the boot tops I will tie off the ends
and slide them back into the eyelets .  This should give a good look as well as being functional .   

The standard boot Eyelets will be covered with an armor plate . This armor will have heat coils attached . ( Nonfunctional of course  :rolleyes: )
Since the Wampa normally doesn't eat it's catch immediately , it likes smaller prey more as a snack food , unless starving . So you'll have several
smaller animals stuck to the Ceilings and wall of it's lair with frozen saliva ..... Usually hung upside down , like Skywalker .
 These boots will come in Handy if I'm ever taken by Surprise and caught .

Chance favors the prepared mind .....  ;D

I just end up braking the Thread a lot or it Frays and then knots up , then that whole stitch is shot , because the Bobbin didn't catch the Stitch , so it just pulls right out .

Well every picture Taken was either Blurry or Was obscured in someway (  little kid Camera muggin   :-\ )

I'll have to get more Taken latter ....   :(  Quite the Bummer ...

  However , this was the most Comfortable to wear kit I've made yet , so that is a Plus  ;D



But ...... I was called a Stormtrooper , White Boba Fett , Winter Boba , &  " Hey Star Wars " .

 Took tons of pics with kids and adults alike , all of who said  "  I love Star Wars " !  But Didn't really have a Clue ...

The icomm & the New Amp was the Hit of the Evening ......  8)
Best upgrade I've made yet . It Worked Flawlessly all night long .

This is the only Clear pic that I have ATM . It is Candid from the start of the Night . (I didn't know it was Taken)
 You can't see my Gaunts & the Bells look low .... However they're not , their higher .
The Slevees were pulled down from kids asking for pictures ..... Tug tug ....  :-X

Update :

I went Shopping the other Day .... $16.00 upgrade .  ;D
 Found a New pair of Gloves : $2.00 (Leather Gauntlet length)  ReStore .(New)
Grabbed a Painters Drop cloth $6.00 (4' X 12' 10")  Canvas to Boot !   ;) Harbor Freight .(New)
2 Totes for Crafts in the Clearance section at Michaels $4.00 each . (New) Perfect shape .

I have the Materials at my Mother in-laws house as we speak .
 She will be making the Drop Cloth into Cloth Coverings for the
pack sections . It has been Washed and Dried conventionally .
Now it's much easier to Work with , but still strong & durable .


She will also be Covering the Gauntlet areas of the Gloves in the
the Same Quilted Fabric as my Vest . Then I will add my Armaments
over the Top . The same as I did with the Rest of this kit .

I should have Some pics in a Day or so ..... If all Goes well ..  :rolleyes:

Update :

Secured the Boxes to the Frame :  2 Ways (Con Proof) I hope ...  :-\

All Greeblies are Attached  : 

Drilled out 2 Spring steel Key Clips :
 Then Riveted them to my Top Shoulder Plates .

The Frame has 2 steel Rings & 2 links of Chain (1 each Side)
as an attachment point .

Then it's a Simple " Clip -Clip " and the Backpack is " on or off " .

I will have a Belt or Waist Strap to Come . This will hold things Down at the Bottom ...  ;)

I really dislike UPS as a shipping service, I almost never receive quality packages from them. Skirata Arms needs to host a workshop at most conventions teaching his ridiculously over the top packaging method for helmets. It shouldnt be required, but it almost seems like it is.

Small Update :  New Pad !

Now it Fit's great , This Buy'ce came with a Chin Strap installed (Nuts buy Ears)
so there Will be 0 shift .....  ;)

I've also Made a New Custom T Visor for this Build .(Better pics to Come)
Then with Small .50 Screws installed along the Edge
 of the Bucket opening to Anchor the Visor manually.

That's about all for now .

I like it, how much easier is it to get on and off than the one piece?

It's not even Comparable ...   ;) IMO ...

There is a Great Range of movement with the MoW 2 piece.
This is Something that my Original  Kit lacked ...  :-\ The Top is Extra long so there is no Chance of it
pulling out . I did However Dbl reinforce the knees with Heavy White Iron on patches . 
Then My Mother In law put Big Button holes on both sides of the knees so I could run my Knee armor straps inside .

This Kit is also much Cooler (Temperature wise) than My current Full Hoth Kit .
Which is understandable , but Happily unexpected ..  ;D

I still have to add some Weathering , but I'm going to get that done after this Weekends CORE Troop .

 Thanks For looking ...  8)

Other than what you have already mentioned, I'd suggest adding the same type of blue around your visor to some parts on the armor such as the chest pieces. That way it'll flow better.

Thats one hell of a kit ner vod! I love the Remo tribute details.

I can't believe there hasn't been a brigade made for Arctic mandos yet! Would love to see that! I may have to build an Arctic kit soon... This Canadian winter just doesn't seem like it wants to end

 These tools will be a Great upgrade for Future plans ... At least that is , if they preform as promised .

Sorry this Holster update is so late ...  :-\

 anyhow .. I started buy finding a Few images of what I wanted , then I made a Template and
copied it onto some 3mm Sintra ..

(http://i1066.photobucket.com/albums/u406/ConDarWard44/ConDar%20Holster%20Build_zpslhbmznyi.jpg)

Then it's time to Breakout the Heat Gun and get to Heating and folding ... Now to make the Edges more precise
 I simply cut out a rough form that I traced onto some Scraps .... I had to Stack them up to get the Right Height ..

(http://i1066.photobucket.com/albums/u406/ConDarWard44/ConDar%20Holster%20Build%202_zpsxg6c2vfj.jpg)
(http://i1066.photobucket.com/albums/u406/ConDarWard44/ConDar%20Holster%20Build%203_zpsnf5lrday.jpg)

After I was Happy with the Tab alignment I Wrapped it With Rubber bands and Heated it on the Inside and placed the blaster in
it to mold the Holster to the Shape I wanted ...

(http://i1066.photobucket.com/albums/u406/ConDarWard44/ConDar%20Holster%20Build%206_zpsvk7pfwyf.jpg)

After it Cooled I took the Rubber bands off and applied 2 Step PVC Cement (Primer & Glue) then Re Wrapped it with the Rubber bands ...

I let the Holster Dry For a Day , then to Reinforce the Joints I applied some Aluminum Tape then painted it White .. This probably Wasn't Necessary but I didn't Want it To Ever Come apart so better Safe than sorry ...

(http://i1066.photobucket.com/albums/u406/ConDarWard44/ConDar%20Holster%20Build%209_zpsio5s2rxr.jpg)

 Then it was Just Heating and Folding the Belt loop out of the Extra Material I allowed for at the Top ... I also added a leather
strap for Securing the Blaster and put a snap on it got good measure ...  ;)  (sorry no pics of that process... :-X)

(http://i1066.photobucket.com/albums/u406/ConDarWard44/ConDar%20Girth%203.0%20pic%204_zpsjtteldu3.jpg)

 I'm pleased With How it Turned out and Trooped it a Few Days later .... I will add some Weathering as I go , but it gets
pretty beat up on its own so I'll just keep adding to the Damage as it Comes along ...

As always Thanks For looking ....  8)

Yes I know it's been a while since I've posted any updates on my kit but not a lot has changed in the last few years ...  :rolleyes:

But now with Celebration Orlando just around the corner I thought I had better start some much needed repairs and upgrades.

 Sorry  I don't have pics of my flight suit right now to show , but I've added gussets to the back , shoulders and forearms to give more range of movement.

I have trimmed my Collar neckline deeper to also give more comfort on long troops. I've been planning this for a few years but just forgot frankly until
 I put it on again and then just am too worn out to do it after Cons or troops .. so finally it's done ...  ;)

I figured while I was doing the collar I'd add my  Ori'ramikad insignia to the diamond as well .. so that's Done .. ;D

 Then I decided it was time to upgrade my Blaster rifle for the big troop so I finished up a Scratch build I've had sitting on the wall for a year or so
for myself with a paint job to match my kit specifically ...   8)

As always thanks for looking and I look forward to meeting all my Brothers and Sisters in Orlando OYA MMCC ! ! ! !

I use mostly common Hand tools : rasps , files , sandpaper , Dremel's .. etc ...  Nothing real spectacular ...   :rolleyes: ;)

I have a dremil,but no rasp and can't find my files,still even doing it with your hands shows how much talent you have, not many people can do that,or won't. ;D

 Perhaps , I just sketch out the design on a board then make it 3D ..... That's how I've always built my stuff ..
 Thanks for the Complements , but it's just what I do to Relax ....  ;D

also most of my tools are used and purchased at thrift stores and Re-Store ... So I can get a Bunch for a few dollars ...  ;)

This is an amazing kit, vod! What did you use for the gold accents? They look so nice and shiny. I was hoping to do something similar on my kit.

 You're most kind , thank you for the complement ..  :8):

I use a medium grade Gold leaf . It's from a kit I had for a long time ..
 It's Called Mona Lisa metal leaf I think  :rolleyes:  ... but you can get similar products at most Craft stores. ;)
