The only problem is the smell of paints makes my wife instantly throw up. So its been hard to get more painting done.  :-\

That's a little too much info  ;).

I used Tamiya paints back when I made WW2 model planes and AMT/ERTL SW kits. Made a great X-Wing and Slave-I if I do say so myself. I use the GW for my customs, but I might go back and try some Tamiya paints again. Their "military" colours are plain awesome.

I know its been a while since I've updated this thread but here goes nothing.

First up is the Maul Santa from 12/24/06:


Next up is my latest additions to the vintage Droids line. I give you Admiral Screed and Kleb Zellock.



For these, I tried to get the most accruate colors possible to the real prototypes. All the joints have rubber pipping to make the joint firm and to make it easy to disassemble.

Those are awesome.  It would be kind of cool to see someone do some movie-real sculpts of these charcaters.  Keep up the great, great work.

Phurby, are the Droids figures sculpted from scratch?  If so, I would love to see you attempt a Rebel Fleet Trooper sculpted in the Vintage style.  In fact, I'd be willing to do a drawing of it.  Could be a cool project!---Mike

Actually, I did a vintage style rebel fleet trooper a few years ago. This is basically a han solo body with a death star trooper head.



Those figures I believe were originally sculpted by either Bantha5 or RickyUK.

Well it's been about five months since I've posted a custom. I now present to you Gaff from the Droids cartoon show. This is a copy of an unproduced prototype.



I even updated my web site.  :P Master Phruby's Custom Creations

Looking good Paul! You did a real nice job on the cape, what material is that? That paint is really nice a smooth as well, kudos on that. It is nice to see vintage customs, it is a really nice change of pace from clones and anything else PT.

So where do all the parts from this guy come from? Did someone manage to cast a prototype, or did someone sculpt one themselves?

Personally, I believe clones are overrated. I've been wanting to add this one to my collection for awhile now. This is a cast from bantha5's original sculpt. I don't think he got ahold of the real prototype but it doesn't have a copyright date or peg holes. The figure has rubber inserts for the arm and leg holes to keep the figure tight. The cape is made from some fabric my wife had laying around.

Now I've got four more casts of Droids prototypes to track down. (Jessica Meade, Mon Julpa, Mungo Baobab and Governor Koong )

I just finished my Microlady style Arena Padme. She has 30 points of actuation. The clothes are white balloons made to hide the joints.



Here are a couple of work in progress shots.
