I have to give HUGE kudos to Chewie as I have just finished my first customs. My first one followed Chewie's Mace. I took an Agen Kolar body, put on a Mace Jedi Council head, and trimmed the front of the tan Jedi tunic. I won't have a digital camera until around the 1st of October so I cannot post pictures, but I am very pleased.
My next two were nothing much, just paint and some battle damage of the SA Clone and making them into 501st Clones. I used the picture (small) on page 44 of the Visual guide and a pictue of Hasbro's 501st Tactical Ops Clone from SDCC. The first clone was a learning experience so I made two more and I am happy with them!
My next custom is to take another SA clone and do a paint job based on the green clone on page 44 of the visual dictionary. I really like that clone so . . .
I also intend to do some customizing of some wookies as well, making some new warriors and I would like to make 1 Wookie Jedi.
Anyone have ideas for make a custom of the Imerpial FX-9 that helps to rebuild Vader? I have several FX-7 still in package and would use one as a base, but need to look at the head, arms etc. Any input or direction would be appreciated.
Man, if I had ever guessed how much I would enjoy this, I would have done this a LONG time ago!
