Wow! I like that new Fett bust you painted. Is that bootleg bust about the same or inferior to the real thing? How much detail have you noticed is missing from the bootleg? How much is the bootleg?

I'm happy with the paint color I mixed up. I just need to finish sanding down the bust. I'm still looking for a nice piece of fabric for the robes. I need to go to the fabric store and look around. I wonder if they have swatch samples. Its not like I need a yard of red fabric.

Here is an update on my slave leia. I painted the body with a coat of model master acryl Skin tone warn tint and skin tone tint base. It got pretty close to the color of the head. I'm really impressed on how well the paint goes on these figures. It works much better than any hasbro plastic. Since its only the first coat I didn't care if I covered all the joints. There will be a second layer for a different skin tones to make it look more alive.

I've drimeled out the bikini top from a potf2 slave leia. Its as thin as I could get it without going thru the plastic. Here is a picture of it placed on the chest.



As you can see it looks to far away from the body. I've learned that I should have used a Microlady with a small chest size instead of large. But who knew how big her chest would be until I had it in my hands. Therefore, I've got to sand down the chest in order for the top to fit snuggly against the body. Here is a shot of the body with the chest being sanded down. I'll got to do more work on her chest to make it better. But I think the top will look good after I'm done.



These microladys are very easy to disasemble. So covering all the joints with primer will not be a problem.

Yah, Ripley's is going to be cool. Odds are she will finish it around April.  ;)

Great job so far Ennis. I really like the modern version of Padme your making. She will be much more in scale than my toon version. Do you have an idea for the holster? The fleet trooper holder might work.

Didn't Amy Allen play Officer Lewis in Robocop?  ???

Wait... just a sec.....no? Really? Oh...

Sorry that's Nancy Allen in Robocop.  :-[

Nevermind.

If you don't understand a custom, why not ask about it instead of being silent?

So it looks like a new head sculpt instead of the Sacul head. Extremely easy custom to make if you have a Sacul head cast. I wonder if they got the idea for this from FFURG's fan fic recipe gallery.

That is cool. I especially like the interior lighting.  Now he needs some legs.

What a great idea to use that fake train grass for fur. I wonder how that technique would look on my snowbunny Padme. Very good idea and a great look ewok!

That's a cool design for the Mandalorian. My son's friend gave me a buff boba fett to paint for him. I think I'll use this color scheme. Good idea.

That D4-602 is about the most bizarr astromech I've ever seen. Very weird head. It almost seems too big for the body. Strange. Maybe some lights on the head to identify the front head?

I like the parts used for the Imperial Intelligence Officer. He's nice and clean looking. I think I would lose the belt around the gonk droid. It just makes him look very ad-hoc - like someone modified him for a purpose he wasn't intended for. I don't think the imperials would allow a droid with wires hanging off of it to wonder around a base. They seem to like their droids clean and streamline.

You crack me up DD!

Aqualish shot-putters - now that is a great idea! I've got to make one!

Phruby, what did you make her belt and holster from?  They look great.  The fur effect, is that achieved with elastic bands that have been painted over?  Only thing I'd suggest for her face is slanting her eyebrows up a tad, to give her a less sinister look.

The holster is from a potf2 fleet trooper. The belt is some model masking tape painted over. It just happen to be the prefect width. The leg fur is actually thin lines of sculpty painted over. I'm not sure I like the effect. I was trying to make it stand out a little bit. The arms are just a band of sculpty with indentions. I agree she does look a little pissed off in that stance and expression. I'm not sure how to change it since its the original wonder woman face. Hopefully I'll be able to hide the flatness of the cowl with the hood I'm making.

Chewie, that has got to be the ultimate Mace Windu figure. Great stance. Great flowing robe and the perfect expression. He's just so simple he is prefect. I'm glad you didn't go overboard on the weathering. What robe is that from?

Amen brother! 8)

That's why the current group project is a 'no clones allowed' project.
