Hi Guys,

Well this one i did a few days ago,and i decided to put him up today.Vader is made from the body of Saga #38 and totally repainted head to toe.I hate the cheap rubbish cloth capes this figure comes with and wanted something that suited the small figure better.As I loved the head sculpt of the Saga 38 vader, i left it on the body but lifted the cape and loin skirt from the hologram vader. I loved the flow of the cape and i felt it just made vader look accurate.i had to rtim down the collar a little but how it it looks looks really nicely fitted.I also added the neck chain from a real chain i stole from my wifes old earings.(shhh)

The helmet was sanded down to rid the darn thing of plastic chunks and chips and used liquid green stuff to fill the cracks.The result was a nice smooth helmet. His lightsaber was painted to look illuminated.

Well i hope you guys like this recipe.Please let me know what you think.

Cheers
