Title: Vult Tavik, Gun for Hire
Post by: Vult Tavik on Sep 10, 2012, 09:21 AM
I forgot all about these threads when I first became OM, but I guess this is a great place to collect my favorite pictures of the completed kit.

Thanks Vode, I was truly living the dream at C6 and been having a blast ever since I joined the Mercs! This will be a life-long hobby and every time I see someone else's kit it gives me inspiration and ideas about what I want to do next.

I do love this, quite a lot. I really like that shot at the holochess table.
Title: Re: Vult Tavik, Gun for Hire
Post by: Vult Tavik on Sep 11, 2012, 09:55 AM
Thank you very much. That holochess shot was all the wifes' doing- she still wasn't happy ( I guess she wanted to take it more "head-on"), but there was a line and we didn't want to hold it up too much. I was just very thankful and happy the guy let me go down the hallway for the other shots.
Title: Re: Vult Tavik, Gun for Hire
Post by: Kelan Ord on Sep 13, 2012, 02:30 PM
That first shot is one of my favorite. Looks like it came straight out of a movie...!!!

And brother, let me tell you, your kit is quickly becoming a favorite of mine...!!! I really like the whole thing!!

Thanks brother- it wouldn't be nearly as good as it is so far without your craftsmanship that made the cod armor and the Verp (Leia)! I am installing the Fettronics as we speak :)

These pics :o This KIT :o I love everything about it!

Vult, would you mind if I did a drawing of that first picture you posted? I think it's the same as your profile picture; the one with you looking to your left. I think it would make an awesome graphite drawing! Credit will go to both you and Jason of course!  :D

Title: Re: Vult Tavik, Gun for Hire

Thank you. It is always nice when someone appreciates your work. I certainly don't mind as longs as Jason gets his credit  ;D

Ya, I know. She was so hot in real life too. So sweet, so blown away by our Mando gear, and I get to look at the glossy 8x10 of her in the "Date my avatar" video outfit. She wrote me "You dress to impress dude. <3 - Felicia Day"


- you jelly bro?

haha, I'm glad you "know" who she is and can appreciate it. A lot of people do not. I do hope you get to meet her at a local CON. She was very cool.

Fantastic looking kit... and the pics are very inspiring!

I'm sure I'll be using your kit as a reference as I build my own...  ;D

the next thing I am going to modify on my old kit is to "modernize" the armor attachment using rivets since it is the new thing :)
Title: Re: Vult Tavik, Gun for Hire
Post by: Gale Cabur on Mar 26, 2015, 04:20 AM
I would be careful, the app team is starting to crack down on visible rivets.

I would be careful, the app team is starting to crack down on visible rivets.

We don't "crack down" on visible rivets.
We ask that they are painted to match the armor. Shiny chrome rivets look odd on a nice and weathered kit.

My apologies, thatís what I get for reading into comments. Glad someone from the app team was able to clarify. Iím excited to see how your kit turns out!

No worries vod! :D

Now back to Vult!!

Can't wait to see your custom mando in action again!!

I love your choice in colors, and over all excellent execution!

I especially like the simplicity of the right chest symbol. it adds a perfect touch!  I'm jealous!  :)

Gotta say, killer kit and LOVE the baby blue... Favorite color and great paint scheme and Original Fett Flavor. also love that you got your cape to drape like original Boba Fett. Excellent Job!

Post by: Vult Tavik on Dec 28, 2015, 09:06 AM
Thanks for all the new comments! I still haven't decided on exactly which method to take but I will paint and blend it in to go along with the rest of my paint for sure.
