Completed a third very good trade with James.  Thanks!

Ok, i just finished a marathon weekend getting JLU stuff done for custom con.
5 figures in 2 and a half days.

Can I claim ignorance and ask what is JLU and Custom Con?

Those look freakin' awesome.  Very nice upgrades!  Ben is my favorite.  The paint came out great.

That's the technique I use now for curing sculpty. I microwave a cup of water for three minutes and then put the figure in the boiling water for at least five minutes. It works great and I never have a melted mess.

If I can't find some brown cloth or leather, I'll sculpt it. Cloth would work better over the jointed arm.

 I cure my sculpy in boiling water on the stove - 3 minutes for thin pieces attached to figures.  No permenant damage yet. 

As far as leather goes. I've picked up some vinyl table cloth material at Joanne Fabrics.  It looks like it would work pretty well for faux leather.  It may be bit too stiff for this custom though.

So, I picked up some greenstuff at Gamesworkshop this weekend.  I thought I'd give it a try instead of having to boil my sculpy all the time.  Any advice when working with this?    Do you guys use any other brand two-part epoxy modeling putty?  I've heard something of plumber's putty I think but I'm not sure if thats the same thing.

So do all the finished products from this Group Project get collected somewhere?

Just completed a trade with bikerscout - great dealer.  Excellent communication and prompt shipping.  Deal with confidence!

Did you loose any data from your old hard drive?

Definitely looking forward to seeing some photos of these!

Kit'chn T'abel --- Ha!  That was great.  I of course didn't get it right away but man thats funny.  You wonder if thats how Lucas thinks up some of these names/places!

I think the clones look good in action - I like the enhancements on Commander Gett. 

BTW, I think your photography skills have improved sinece the first Aurebesh photos.  Keep it up.

DE- I think the Snow Commander is very good idea.  I think the blue cammo probably works.  However, it appears that the paint as gone on a little too thick.  Maybe they can be blended in together a bit more?

I think Captain America looks cool.  I'm not a Marvel collector but I do like your super heroes.

Well, I'll say that the title caught my eyes....

I think you should try for some form fitting softgoods on the top.  Maybe difficult to pull off (no pun intended).  I've found that a little bit of well placed superglue will hold soft goods in position.  Otherwise I think your idea of sculpy might also work.  I'd be worried that a very thin area would be difficult to sand down/smooth off (something I always have to do with sculpy).  I'm not sure dremeling out her top would work as I'm not sure her, eh-hum, proportions are the same between the two figures.

On minor comment.  The way her hands are positioned, it looks like her lower right hand is bent at a very odd angle.

Darth Viscera - looks amazing.  I've been working on a Sith Lord Custom and my guy looks laughable next to this one!  I think that Joe Body parts are a perfect fit for this guy.  Maybe I should start looking at more GI Joe parts. Hmmmm.

The Commando also looks good.  I haven't read any of the RC stories (or even played the game) so I haven't completely been swept up by RC-craze.  However, from what I hear, the new RCs are supposed to be black in scheme.  I think you pulled them off for sure.
