That bucket is gorgeous bud, very well done. The soft parts are looking great as well, and your new armor seems to be coming along well. On the sizing of your plates, where does the bottom hem of your vest come to? You'll wanna tweak the shaping on the collar and chest so they lie flat, but the width looks like it's good. The length, on the other hand, either the chest is too long, or you just have a short vest and will have your ab plate hanging off or just touching the bottom of it. I'm a few years out of touch, having just started getting back into the swing, but if I recall correctly Boba's vest goes to the navel and Jango's is a bit longer. If you don't want your ab plate pushed off the bottom, you'll have to shave the chest plate down a bit in the sections to sit next to it and maybe shave your ab plate down a bit.

Funny you mentioned protectors Mi'ix - I really wanted to make a protector kit, but my custom bucket isn't approvable for that brigade, so I had to change my plans   :rolleyes:  But maybe one day... :laugh:

Thanks Vhett   ;) PrePro Fetts are my main inspirations, so if you're seeing similarities then I'm doing it right  :P

Right? So good! Build faster!!! lol
I wish I could work faster Vod, but real life keeps slowing me down :-X maybe next month I'll be able to spend more time working on this kit.

Anyway, I made some progress since last time -

Shoulders are now fully painted

As you see I picked PP1/2 skull instead of standard mythosaur skull. I like it much better and it's more unique than commonly used ESB/ROTJ versions.
The symbols on right shoulder are based on Joe Johnston's concept art


The cape was weathered with scissors, sandpaper, acrylics and shoe polish


And I finished the first stage of building my gauntlets

Now it's time for some bondo and sanding.

:laugh: Thanks Vod.  I try to do my best to achieve the highest quality I can.

Forgot to mention that earlier, but I'll be aiming for gunslinger profession with this kit.

Thanks guys.

Chest is mostly done and ready for sanding and priming.


Though I may move the ab plate several millimeters up.
