Those decals look great !, I have been thinking of using decals myself. As usual your work keeps me inspired with my own build

I got those off a guy on "the dented helmet"... ordered via his webpage
www.DeLucksDesigns.net
If you haven't checked out dented helmet, get over there and have a look, plenty of info, skilled guys



G'day all, I dyed one of the hip pouches last night....was meant to be tan, looks a little darker than tan. Have to see if it lightens after a wash or two,

After two washes

Happy with that, now to fill it out, then bit of weathering
Also on other gauntlets thinking of adding something like this

The little flamethrowery thing on the gauntlet looks cool, I definitely suggest adding it if you're on the fence about it :D

Thanks vod, All that thing is is a pencil butane torch. I'm going to add another to the other side. maybe as fenn suggested some piping out back for some hoses....may run into the top rear hose
Here's where I at with the hip pouches, still not 100% happy with them. I reckon a different shade of brown ...maybe chocolate brown

Sorry vod....got sidetracked and didn't see this last bit....,  that's all my decorations...think there's two hammerheads sharing a drink in the plant pot. The weequay is trying his best to start things off....not quite "yub  yub".... but I preferred jabbas style

Thanks mate, the red one has been given a bit of a dip in a brown dye, washed and waiting for it to dry. Then I'll work out the weathering fir them. Thought I'll use the red one and the first aid pouch, not sure about the brown...maybe some dets.
Here's c how the belt set looks at this stage, need to look at a different holster for pistol.
