Re: Mike's Vader Build Thread

As long as you don't point and laugh... :D You guys might be right about the shoulders. When we painted them, Wags and I debated over the color and decided to go with the lighter one (I still like it better). I'm sure someone will be able to set me straight this weekend at MCCC. True, this will be m...

Re: Mike's Vader Build Thread

We were going for Empire. Did we paint the bells wrong? I've seen the grey/black bells on some Vaders (I thought that was ROTJ?). Or is the grey color we used on the shoulder armor too light? Anyway, I already sent it in, so let's hope for the best (but prepare for the worst!). I figure I'll still w...

You did spell it right! Ms. Roulo (Wags' 2nd grade teacher) would be so proud! :D

By the way, in that 4th picture I was actually holding the cape up - not flashing gang signs! :lol:

Thanks again Rob! Now all I need to do is get Anton to paint it. I might have to bribe him with beer... :D

Re: Mike's Vader Build Thread

Well, Anton and I have begun to work on the Vader again. At the moment we're making adjustments and preparing to sand and paint. Does anyone know what the correct grey colors are for DV's shoulder armor and helmet? I read that we should use Dupli-Color paint in one of the other forums (of course I c...

Re: Mike's Vader Build Thread

Have any updates for us??? Sorry, no updates as since my last posting. :( I’ve been spending the last month or so helping Harp get his armor ready for the Fury game. However, since I’m the only one in our little Triumvirate without a TKID, I’m getting a little antsy to get done. I’m shooting for a ...

Ok, Im going to post up pics for Mike and he will post after with his details and comments on his plans for finishing. Where to start... top down I guess. Helmet: I haven't started on that yet. There's like 904 things to do on it, so I'll tell you all about that when I start it. Shoulder Armor: I j...

Re: Mike's Vader Build Thread

Sorry, I didn't get a chance to work on my Vader this weekend. :( It's just too cold in Arc Commander's garage!

I'll post the update as soon as I'm able.

I'll be an ESB Vader. Since most of the stuff I had originally came from ESB, it was an easy choice.

Re: Mike's Vader Build Thread

any word or updates on your vader????? Well, I finally found some material, so on Sunday I finished my inner robe (thanks for the advice Shawn!). I may have to make one adjustment when I get my shoulder armor in, but I think it turned out pretty good. I won't start on my outer cloak until I get the...

Re: Mike's Vader Build Thread

I figure that I'll go with an ESB Vader. Since I already have some of the correct parts, it'll be a bit more economical for me. And I'm generally more of an OT guy anyway. I'm still waiting to get that "You're clear to view our site" email from Sithtrainingtemple.com. It's been around a week, I supp...

Re: Mike's Vader Build Thread

The rubbies shins might make it through o.k. That would probably be the only part off the shelf,But double check just to be sure. But,are the shins long enough? How tall are you? I figured that this might be a problem. I'm accurate Vader-sized (6'6"). Although in the above pictures I've notices tha...

Re: Mike's Vader Build Thread

Don't worry about nitpicking - I appreciate the help! These are the things I need to know before I send in my finished product. Is it true that no Rubies items are good enough for the 501st? There’s a set of shin armor up for sale on ebay that seems pretty good. I'll also take a look at some gloves ...

Re: Mike's Vader Build Thread

I made the front of the shirt "Vaderesque", but the back is a real light cotton. I knew that I was going to have some trouble making the neckline so I bought an $8 turtleneck from K-Mart to build the material on. I thought that a turtleneck might work in lieu of any other headgear (the helmet is hot...
