Did a couple things this weekend.  Mainly, finished up the major painting! :)



The famous finger print.

I spent Sunday getting an idea for how I'm going to install the electronics and get the lights and servo going.

I forget just exactly how detailed and beat up Fett is until I get to see photos like this. Love it

I don't think there's anything constructive I can say...you look like you've got it under control....   :laugh:

So I'll just sit here and drool.......

Only had a few things to finish up last night so I apologize for the spam!


Added the "overspray" marks from the killstripes.  They're super subtle, but I mixed yellow with some brown in my airbrush and turned the air WAY down.


Dirty RF stalk.  Splattered with model master color "leather" and then washed.


Splattered non-rf ear cap with model master color "wood".


Splatter 1 with Borden!


Splatter 2


Splatter 3

There's some more on the left side of the helmet, but not nearly as much as the RF side. 


Black wash!


The boys wondering what's going on!  I did some test splattering on the Protector.  Lol that helmet has served as a guinea pig for techniques I was unfamiliar with!  Next I'm moving on to electronics.  Servo for the range finder and light kit in the topper!

Thank you!

I agree, but I'm a little bias.  ;)

So, now that the silly helmet is done we can move on to other things.  I will start with the boots!


My ever faithful MOW boots that I use on my Protector.  This is how they looked fresh out of the box.  I weathered them lightly for that kit, but now the time has come for them to realize their full dirty potential.

I darkened the middle stripe with some thinned out acrylic paint, and then applied a charcoal wash for the first round of weathering. 



That's where they stand right now.  If all goes to plan, I should finish them up this weekend.

What are you going to use to attach your toe spikes and what material are they?

I really had trouble with mine untill words like screws, threadlock and welding came in to play

I just used a tiny strip of industrial strength velcro. 20+ troops and they haven't budged.  :)

Speaking of which....boots!



Shin tool test fit...  I'll likely go with another set of shin tools since I just grabbed these from my Protector to try it out.
