Starting my Journey

Post by FrankAZ » Tue Apr 02, 2024 8:27 pm

After talking with some folks over the weekend, decided it was also time to join the local garrison.

I’ve been working on a ROTJ version of Darth Vader, and have spent a ton of time pouring over the reference library, time on the site lord detachment, and the rpf looking at examples, and how other people did things as I work towards my completion. I’m trying to go all scratch built to test my skills.

Photo is of the dark series helmet (which I know isn’t right but I have it) and isn’t right for approval.

Looking forward to meeting folks and eventually joining!

While not quite for here, here was a build from last year.

Frank, welcome! I hope you find this as rewarding as many of us have.

We have quite a few Vaders around the DSG who could also be of potential help to you as well. I'll send this forum link to some of them. Also, keep your eyes open for Armor Parties, Build Days, and Meet and Greet functions near you.

I hope to meet you soon and watch the progress of your work.

Regards,

Greetings Frank!

Welcome to the forums. As mentioned above, we do have several Vader's. Hopefully you get to meet some and they're able to share some Vader building wisdom with you. I can't wait to see your Vader come together.

Are you approved with that rebel pilot uniform? You'll find there are many people who have costumes in multiple clubs around here.

I believe it is ready, however, I’m not 100% happy with part of the belt, and am redoing that.
