    Hey guys,

    Hope all is well. So after deciding to take a break from the hobby i decided to build a lifesize Jawa. I owned one years ago but sold it on due to space issues. This is 80% complete now and there are only a few bits left to do. Best thing is that it has cost me the best part of £25 so far [​IMG] and a bit of work. Price list:

    2 brown fleece throwover blankets £3 each
    Eyes £4
    Ammo bag £10
    Mannequin head £3
    gloves £1

    Used some pipe fittings i had to make the mannequin, an old wine rack for the base plus some old black material and loads of bubble wrap. Not 100% finished yet as i need to source a cheap bandolier :) I made the Ion pack from a bit of spare 5x2 and made the blaster last year using items found in my bucket of delights in the garage :)

    Not an amazing looking onem, but he is getting there. Sorry for the camera blurs etc, just wanted to show a progress pic.

    Hey guys,

    So I just finished making the bandoliers and dirtying him up a little more and he is more or less complete. Total cost of build £30 :)

    Any advice / pointers appreciated.

    Really nice build! I also built one Jawa not so long ago (you can check it here, if you want: http://www.therpf.com/showthread.php?t=239637).
    Will he be standing on that black trestle or are you going to do some Tatooine-looking sand trestle?

    Amazing Jawa ... next take a picture with real light or outdoors and no flash so the face becomes much darker and the glowing eyes will pop :)

    Thanks guys. After looking again i need to weather the bandoliers a bit. Im going to give the base a special spray job ala Tatooine aswell as making the gun stock a darker brown.

    Power Droid 1/2 scale next.Havent got room for a bigger one :)
