Thanks guys!  I'm so glad you like where this build is going. 

I'm still waiting on my masking fluid, but in the meantime, tonight will be focused on getting my cod/kidney armor to sit right, and starting to clean up the various jetpack parts.  I need to look into acquiring some more hardware to get the rocket and thrusters mounted.

More updates to come!

The little metal bits (studs, toe spikes, etc...) are the little details, to me, that will make the kit!

Ok!

It has been awhile and things have been happening, but I haven't had time to post as this weekend was pretty busy with the clan, etc...

So, I had to deal with the conundrum of how to deal with the gaping hole in my NME rocket pack. For those of you that don't know, I have to make this rocket removable for easier transport. The problem is where to mount said hardware with the hole. I used resin to fill the hole, and a wooden frame to set the bolt. I'm going to let it setup over night just to make sure everything is ok.









The jetpacks thrusters also received the same treatment. I'll post the results once I know how everything turned out.

And finally....



GREEN ALL THE THINGS!  ;D

Seriously, how could anyone ever tire of green.

That's all for now...oh, and range finder tax.

Ok, so more progress tonight.


Gaunt shells connected with some pop rivets (just like my first kit.


Shiny jetpack! Base cost of "aluminum" put down over the original gray primer. I'll do some masking fluid, add another layer of primer and then start with the colors.


Knees darts added to mah knees. Making sure the placement is good before final paint. Don't want no Steve Buscemi knee darts.

Ok, so to go with all the purty armor I have, I needed a blaster for pew pew purposes....


DC-15A, all nekkid.


Comes apart for easy transport!  This was a plus to me as this thing is over 5 feet long.


Primed and "metal" coated with Rustoleum aluminum! (I didn't get pictures of the primer, but it's there)


Beginnings of cape weathering.  I did a lot more after this picture was taken, but I let the blowtorch burn a little too long resulting in the large "blaster" burn.  Don't worry!  I was able to play around with the damage and come up with a nice finished product.  (no pictures yet)

I did a thing, or rather, a lot of different things that led to one obnoxious thing.

The pack's paint job is obviously based off of Boba's in ROTJ, with some differences, mainly purple rocket, no piano keys, and some colors switched around to avoid being identical.


Pre-weathering


Post-weathering

This what probably the single most complex thing I've ever painted, let alone weathered. It's not done yet, but certainly closer.
