Alright went to a few hobby stores today and I’ve got what I could in humbrol acrylics and the rest I cross referenced TDH humbrol paint list with vallejo paints. So I have enough to do the helmet with the airbrush.

I also have the Hunt club green and yellow line stripe that is used for the armor.

My plan is to paint up the helmet I have currently with a mix of rattle cans and airbrush to hopefully practice the weathering.

I’m glad it at least LOOKS like I’ve got a plan ;)

Alright progress has been made. I’ve found just about all of the paint I’ll need, mostly airbrush some rattle can, especially for the armor.

I’ve got a MoW flight suit that I’ll grab some pics of just because. It’s straight  white so I’ll be dyeing it. I found what looks to be a great dye tutorial on TDH so I’ll be trying that out on some fabric swatches I’ve got.

My vest and neck seal are on order from arkady. She’s projecting a 3-4 month turn around. So I’ve got some time to kill. The majority of which will be spent trying to paint this whole thing :laugh:

Jet pack kit is on order from 7cs_prop aka Darth Voorhees and should be ready to ship in a week or 2.

I’ve been looking all over for templates for the SE helmet paint job. I was hoping some existed like the ones available for the esb and RoTJ but I’ve yet to find them. I know the paint job is very similar to esb so I think if I use those templates along with some good reference pics I *should* be able to muddle out a passable paint job. We will see :-X

Alright I’ve got a coat of metallic aluminum down and I’ve started to use the RoTJ templates from TDH.

I’ve come across a question regarding the weathering on the ab plate.

As you can see “kinda” from this picture there’s no silver visible.


However in this picture the silver is visible.


But it looks nothing like the stenciled damage, which should look a bit like this. (Marked in pencil)


But going to the SE promo pics it’s again not visible.


So…I just want to make sure, since it’s not in that promo pic I should leave out that silver weathering. Even tho it’s visible at a later date on the ab?

Stick to one set of references because you're very likely looking at two different ab plates despite the paint being similar.

You'll also need to fill the dent in the right chest plate.  That's an ROTJ thing, not SE.

One set of images is definitely the best advice, thank you. And yeah I was nothing there’s a silver mark but no dent in that area in those pictures. Thanks for clearing that up for me!

You're doing one of the hardest Fetts out there due to the dizzying amount of parts that are swapped in and out to make a "complete" Fett.

Keep at it, man. You're doing really good!

Thanks for the kind words guys :D its definitely a bit different since I was expecting to be able to use the stencils without modding them but I’m slowly wrapping my head around everything.

I’ve changed up the weathering on the ab to more closely match these references.



A few more tweaks here and there but it’s coming along.

How are you liking the new latex?  The progress is looking great and coming along quickly.

I really like the latex, it’s more robust then the stuff meant for prosthetics and I like it dries a solid color. Thanks for the recommendation!

Got the first layer of yellow down. Following stormtrooperguy’s tutorial for paining on TDH the yellow is rust-oleum line stripping yellow.





Very bright but it can be toned down with washes later if needed.

I like the yellow.

Good clean paint application.

No washes on Boba, at least the armor plates. Strictly subtle air brush misting to dial it all back.

Oh no kidding? Interesting, glad you said something. I’ll get to practicing with the airbrush then!

So I had already begun masking for the dark green coat when I noticed this lighter green at the top of the chest plate.


It’s burry but it’s there. So I’ll be hitting that area with my version of spruce green and then masking that out as well.

I also got an update on the jet pack, it should be ready to ship by the end of next week, I’m not in any hurry for it but it’ll be nice to get. :laugh:

I’m also still looking for a bucket. I had my eye on minutefett’s new esb helmet but that is a cleaned up version of the esb cast and so wouldn’t have all the molded in damage of the SE bucket. So not sure of the best course of action yet.
