    Sorry I have been away, its been real busy. I never thought my Fett costume would take so long. I feel like I am so close, yet when I only am able to spend 15min here and 10min there, I still have a ways to go. My biggest problem is I spend a lot of time scratchbuiding something then I upgrade, all before I even have a wearable costume:p Oh well, in the end I should have something I'm really happy with. I need to paint my new Fettpride backplate, fiberglass knees. I also need to finish painting my jetpack and helmet. The jetpack finally has all its base colors applied-

    My helmet is getting real close. I need to weather it, finish the ears, and install the visor-

    Well I finally put the finishing touches on her the other night. Still need to add the blue marker:b I tried my best to duplicate the AOSW exhibit. Its a little off in some areas, but not too shabby for mostly doing freehand besides the base colors. It came out far better than I was hoping for. Enjoy

    I know some of the angles are a little off, but it was late-

    That is truly amazing. See, this is why I'm doing a custom Mando. I just don't think I would have the patience for something like that!!! Excellent job!!
