Really cool display Juan. I may have missed it but what source is your shoulder/chest armour? And what paint did you use for the gunmetal?



Thanks!! Unfortunately this armor is an SPFX. I bought it not knowing Anarchydesigns was the same guy. I'm hoping I can replace it in the near future with an original GH if I find one available.

Yeah indeed that super accurate Tie Pilot helmet, which Portumac made is a very nice recast of a rubies helmet.
Very nice addition for his great product line. :thumbsup

Jup indeed, still like to watching that display.
That IS a Jedi-Vader. :thumbsup

And also one more example, how important good eyes for proportions and a pefect fitting mannequin are.
You can own the best looking parts, with a bad set up it still will look like a Rubies costume.

I would be happy to have a mannequin like this just half as good as yours.

Hey guys! Thanks for the support and kind words! Yes this has definitely been a lot of fun sourcing and putting together, and much like every other props project it will always remain a W.I.P.
LOL But for now I'm really happy with the results.

Now... I am gonna be starting another thread soon in regards to a little something I already put together and that can be seen in this picture...

I'll be posting soon enough :toothy

Ok so I've been quiet for a bit. So once again time to share some Vader goodness! This is not news to some as I shared it privately with a few of the members a few months ago. I was able to put together my ESB display and with some luck I did it rather quickly. These shots were taken right after I put the mannequin together and a few things have been fixed since then. Not a whole lot but I I was able to add the Lightsaber to the belt and re painted the belt boxes to match the black on the buckle. Other than that everything remains the same since I took these pictures. I did all the finishing and painting on this one just like on my ROTJ and the soft parts are all from CP except for the cod which is obviously AP. Hope you all dig it! :)
