Found the RF topper.  Gonna fill in the dent to match the original Supertrooper helmet.  Find a glossier paint.  I'll post more pics in the next couple of days as I get that done.

Thanks for the encouragement guys.

My stand in cape until I find the real one.  The size is pretty close on this one and its got the frayed edges.  Guessing most people won't see the inside anyway.  BTW, anyone got the correct vintage beach towel they wanna sell me?

[u]^THIS^[/u]

I was wondering if you were going to with the beach towel or not. Do you have any pics of what the correct towel looks like? least one can do is help you search for one. Jaw dropping work so far Barricade.

Have a good one,
Hagen

Thanks!  :)

There are some images of the towel I'm looking for.

(http://i1216.photobucket.com/albums/dd375/pctso31/dsc08162b.jpg)
Image is right on this one, but it doesn't have the frayed edges.

Magnets holding the plates together.  Holds pretty well and allows for the plates to be adjusted as needed.  I'd like to bend the plates a bit so its more form fitting.  Any suggestions?

(http://i1216.photobucket.com/albums/dd375/pctso31/WP_000295.jpg)
Gauntlets in progress, almost done with these. Painted, hinges, aluminum darts, dental expander, number pad, and switches installed.  Will need to add greeblies and rocket and should be done.

Dude! Great work! Would you mind tossing up a few more pictures of the gaunts? I think that yours are exactly the inspiration I'm looking for...  :D
Title: Re: My new build...
Post by: Vhett Naast on Jun 09, 2012, 01:17 PM
I.  Love.  This.    There is something about all white armor that rocks,  it is so crisp  8)  looking at this is really making me kick myself for not getting the mail away super trooper figure last year    :(   Oh, and I really like your proto uzi.  What did you use to make it?
Title: Re: My new build...
Post by: Barricade on Jun 10, 2012, 12:34 AM
So after I received my custom resin cast flame thrower from Germany, I promptly broke it.  The good news I suppose is that CA glue takes to resin well and it glued back together.  Time to fill the gap, sand, and repaint and maybe find another way to attach it to the gauntlet.

Here it is semi fixed.
(http://i1216.photobucket.com/albums/dd375/pctso31/WP_000308.jpg)

I didn't make the Uzi.  I bought it from a Garrison mate.  It was made by Dash Razor.  Super awesome build.  It has multiple sound settings and a option to change the pitch of all the sound settings.  I'm super impressed by it.

Hey guys...question

So it looks like that the divers buckle isn't the traditional US Divers buckle like the other Fetts.

The buckle on the left is from the proto Fett pic and the one on the right is the buckle from my costume.

This thread is getting pic heavy..lol.

Made some corrections and fixes

1. fixed t-visor slot so it doesn't flair out at the bottom
2. painted hinges white on gauntlets
3. adjust harness and moved jetpack higher
4. painted the knee dart launcher rings
5. added final decals to the jetpack
6. secured collar plate to sit right on vest
7. tailored vest to be more form fitting
8. painted center diamond all white
9. shin tools repainted
10. knee straps replaced
11. fixed how hose sits
12. swapped out towel for white cape

Wow, those couple of corrections make a world of difference! But I gotta say, I TOTALLY miss the towel. you gotta get that back on there! When Hasbro did the figure on the mail away last year I knew it was going to have all the repaint errors it had and had no issue with that. But, the ONLY complaint I had on the figure was the cape didn't have the towel print on it lol.
Title: Re: My new build...
Post by: Barricade on Jul 17, 2012, 11:14 PM
Thanks Falin!

I do love me some beach towel action...lol.  I swapped it out because those were the same sub pics I'm sending to the 501st
fellas and I think they're going to request I not submit the pics with the towel.
