Alright, just did a bit of Dry Brushing, I tried to black wash but I couldn't get the mixture right or that the areas I was painting on had paint and caused it to dissolve with the mixture of Acrylic/brush cleaner and flat black

Here is what I got

Definitely better! It might be a bit much, but a good amount of black wash /grime will knock it down. I like it!
What he said  :P
Black wash will definitely dirty it up and make the weathering look more natural.

Alright Ladies and Gentlemandos, As I just got my hands on some foam PVC plastic to serve as a backplate/shroud for my Jetpack. I am in a Dilemma of finding parts to make a missile. In the picture below is my workbench and those are actually all the parts I Propose that could make a missile.

I am not really crazy for similarities to Jango's Concussion missile or Boba's Anti-vehicle missile. Since my Mando is a Weapon smith, he pretty much made the missile himself and have plenty of more.

(*PICTURES COMING SOON!!!)

Looks a bit huge to me, I'd either take away the bottom of the 2 blue ones or remove both blue ones altogether - wouldn't want you to knock it off while walking through doorways  ;)

Here is the second proposed Missile





(Note that Greeblie 1 can fit the top of the jetpack snug)


(Greeblie 5 & 4 alone wouldn't be able to fit on the top of the pack)

Alright chaps, just finished up my missile *PICTURES WILL BE COMING SOON!!!*

Now there is one last thing that must be done for my Jetpack to be considered complete, and that is a harness system.

What can be done to make a very basic but strudy harness?
