What's wtong with the preproduction bird? Can it be turned into weathering?
Looks pretty cool all up

Yeah, honestly you could just weathering the red skull a little bit in the areas where the white peeled off to match it. Just use the scrub side of a kitchen sponge and you should be good to go  :like:

Lol Iíll give that a try. Be easier then remasking it. It is enamel so may have to get something stronger then a sponge but Iíll start with baby steps before I pull out some sand paper.

Got anything like turps, acetone, paint thinner? Kerosene works well as well. If you try any try very carefully and slowly.

Well the scrub side of the sponge haha you could also try very very light passes with some steel wool as well - not as directly abrasive as sand paper.

Iíll probably use some sandpaper cause normally I use steel wool to smooth out the paint.

One of my next big projects is going to be the jetpack. Iíve been thinking of different paint schemes for it. I like how Bobas looks but donít wanna make it look exact. Was think of using orange, yellow and grey. For the main body blue would be nice but would it be to close to looking like Bobas? For the jetpack itself I am going to repaint my Holiday Special themed one.

My Rocket pack looks almost exactly like ROTJ Boba in the base colors, so you'd be fine there.

Larson, just be careful of the double posting. If you need to post something back to back, before anyone has replied, just hit the modify button on your original post to add your new thoughts. That, or wait 24 hours. No biggie.  :)

Orange and grey with the blue might look pretty awesome!

Also really love the lights in that jetpack - so goooooood

Oops my bad Iíll make sure not to do that. Iíll post some updates on the jetpack soon then sense it seems it will be ok to use some similar colors.

Happy New Year everyone! Finished up a couple things I was working on last year. First off I weathered the bird shoulder a bit more so that I didnít have to do any repainting to it. Used 220 grit to peel off some of that white.


Also finished up on my back plate and put a clear coat over it sense it will be getting beat up once I get my jetpack finished.


Also started working on the flamethrower by making some clips. I didnít like how they turned out so going to make some more out of sheet metal next. Still need to epoxy the stuff to the rod and find some brass fitting for it.


Lastly picked up a switch for the jetpack that Iím gonna use to control some of the lights.

This time around I didnít make to much progress just added some lights and started priming my jetpack.

I added a light to the left and right gauntlet both are functional from switches


The right one I stole the idea straight from the ESB gauntlet on how they used the light in theirs. Rather mine is a switch I took from an old PSU from a computer and a random white light.


With left one it is the same type red light used on that gauntlet for boba but on the opposite side.


Also started priming my jetpack will have to do a bit more sanding and want to add a few more geerblies and electronics to it.


Also possible going to make a poncho and or cape. I got enough material for both so I may keep both for whenever one or the other is needed.
The poncho currently just has a hole cut into the middle, need to decide if I wanna cut it smaller or not.


For the one Iíd use as a cape I like the size it is currently just need to do a some weathering to it.
