Portrait of Darth Vader, SL-7060

Inspired by Andreas in the Nordic Garrison, I wanted to paint a picture of Darth Vader. Then what's better than actually use my fiancé SL-7060 as a model? :D

We did a photo shoot in the garden (wonder what the neighbours thought, hehe) and ended up with some pretty cool pictures that we manipulated in Gimp. Then I printed the whole image to a overhead sheet and projeted the image to the canvas. When I had the image where I wanted it, I drew thin lines with a pencil and marked what areas should be white and black. I made sure all the lines were just a tad into the black area, so it would be concealed by the black paint. Then I painted with acrylic paint.

I'm pretty happy with it!

I got a Sidewinder kit for my birthday!

My birthday was friday, and I got a sidewinder kit from my boyfriend, SL/TK-7060! It is a resin kit of the Webley & Scott No.1 Mark 1 Flare Gun that Boba Fett uses. Now I have everything I need for Boba Fett! Well, at least everything is ordered and in production, I am still waiting for a huge box with armour parts from Bobamaker.

Let's see what I have:

Boot spikes
Fabric for spats, flightsuit, pouches and flak vest
Girth belt
Ammo belt
Wookiee braids
Knee armour
Body armour parts and helmet(being produced by Bobamaker, will be here in june)
Gloves (also Bobamaker)
Shin tools (Bobamaker)
Jetpack (in the mail this week)
Gauntlets (in the same box as jetpack)

Only thing I still need to buy, are the hoses for the gauntlets, as i don't think they are included on those I bought. If anyone knows where to buy those in Norway, please tell!

Here are some pics of my new baby:
