Hey guys. Been out of the Vader loop for quite some time and I'm trying to slowly get back into it. I just wanted to post a recent pic of my ESB Vader project. Things still need adjusting, modification etc. but I just wanted to share my pic and also give a marker as to where my project is at currently. Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoy.

Nice progress :thumbsup

If you want this moved to the props section for better coverage let me know and I will move it. Normally people put their Vader lifesizes in there even though a WIP, but it is up to you.

Hey guys!

Thank you so very much for the compliments! I'm glad you guys like it. I really try to make it as accurate as possible as that of course is the main goal for me.

As far as the parts, Vader is currently sporting a:

*JB V-2 ESB
*GH Armour finished in ESB colors.
*Gino ESB chestbox with Shackman Lights
*Cape/Robes I bought from someone from the RPF a long time ago and only currently use it for mock up and positioning until I get the boots done upon which the Cape/Robe will be upgraded.
*Belt boxes are incomplete and obviously being scratch built.
*Cod is also a current scratch build project.
*The Leather suit is something that I made/had made personally ESB Style with the "half pants". Took a lot of research on that and am most proud of it.
*The Gloves are regular gloves and are only there as a test and mock up until I have them done properly.
*The Belt and Buckle are Dark Shadow's prototype that I bought a long time ago and am currently using it for mock-up reference at this point.
Not seen:
*Shins: Dark Shadow fiberglass version..(Does anyone know where I can get an accurate pair or screen cast/tour suit shins?)
*Boots: Currently the project I am working on as I am having them made.
*Saber: MR Ep. V and MPP Replica.

*Oh and of course, all this is on a custom built mannequin I had commissioned based on Dave Prowse's measurements from ESB.

Hope to get back into it and complete this bad boy, but as we all know, it doesn't really end, does it? :)

Thanks again for looking and the kind words everyone!
Here's to our hobbies people! May we all eventually achieve our Vader goals and may we acheive them together as a unified community! :cheers
