Commando Sev WIP-looking for Sev decals and such

Post by (insert name here) on Fri Jul 10, 2009 7:56 pm

Hello. It's me, (insert name here). You remember me? Nope, didn't think so.

I have returned for a short time, because I am making my first modded figure, Commando Sev.

I have cleanly and carefully cut and sanded off the fin to a CW clone trooper. So far this is where I stand:



NOTE: I apologize if the pictures seem blurry.

What my problem is is that this is my first time using and applying Decals. I found this paper at a nearby Hobby Lobby store.


I have found a Sev decal at FineKam, but unless I see a better and more accurate one, I'll use theirs.
Anyway, I need to know what would be the BEST way to apply his helmet decal, being it a sloppy mess and all.
Also, I want his visor to look something like Wuzzie's CW Commando. But I don't know where I could get one at.
So if anyone can give me a run-through on how to make a Sev, or if you know of more accurate decals for him, I'd appreciate it very much.

Thank you.

You should definitely use Wbob's commando backpack. And since when does Sev has a visor? The helmet is very smooth though!

Whoops. I guess I mean the blue-ish "eyes" on the helmet.

(I thought that was called a visor...)

Ah, well you could just paint it, I guess. Or use a decal.

Some people aren't as lucky as you to get defects/perfects from Wuzzupbob's Defect Sale. Wink

It's nice, I always like sanded helmets. It makes me want to do it... nah.

How much was the inkjet sticker paper for your decals?

Thing is. I can't find a blue decal. I don't want the whole black visor-eye-whatever thing to be "Commando Blue", I just want the top of his eyes. Similar to wuzzopbobs.

INH!!! You're back!!! The sanded helmet looks good so far. And yes, it is called a visor. That is the same decal paper I use, so it will work good. Did you remember to pick up some decal sealent? If not, than the decal is worthless. Wink And if you want a visor like wuzzie's, I would suggest asking him if he could give you the design. I'm sure he would be wouldn't mind you using it for personal use. Wink

I just remembered. I don't have any idea what the decal size should be before I print it. I know it takes trial and error by just guessing, but I don't have the time or the ink to do that. To all you Decal users, if I was to resize them on Photoshop, what would the general size be around? (I need it for the torso, legs, and arms.)

Visor

If you want to have a blue visor, use colour to paint it. I use for my visors Revell Email colour in light blue. It looks fantastic!
