    I've been very unhappy with some parts of my Lifesize Vader
    Display, so over the last few months I tried to obtain a few
    new parts to make it a bit more "screen-accurate" :D .

    Just last week I managed to finish the Chest Armor and the
    Chest Box, so I grabbed the camera and took a few pics of
    my "updated" ANH Vader - hope you all like him - :)

    He's not finished yet ... still need a new Cape and Robe as
    the ones I have are not "heavy" enough and also a few inches
    too short, and a few "details" still need work, but I thought it
    was worth showing now ... :rolleyes

    ... so I hope you'll enjoy the pics ...

    Very nice. More screen accurate than mine will ever be.

    Bee-autiful. love it. :)

    (Perhaps swap the green beltbox buttons for some of the correct square ones, but an utterly awsome Vader all the same.)

    **EDIT

    By the way, can you share any info on the sources for the various components??? and are you going to subtly weather the helmet and armour?? (no-one seems to do that with their ANH Vaders.)

    Hey - thanks a lot guys for all the nice comments - :)

    The Chest Armor is a modified GH (Center-stripe sharpened up and flare reduced)
    The Chest box is a Resin piece I bought off eBay with Alu Rods and ANH Coin Slots
    from Russrep, sharpened up buttons and a custom Paint Job like the Armor.
    The Beltboxes, Beltbuckle and Saber-clip are also from Russrep (his new Alu Boxes),
    and the Helmet is my SPFX ANH ... so much for the Parts - :)

    Glad you all like it - as I said - some Details have still to be taken care of, but all
    in all I'm pretty happy with it right now - though I need a bigger Mannequin as I
    can't put the Helmet over the Chest Armor as I wanted because the Helmet is
    already stuck right underneath the Chin of the Mannequin - :$

    Very nice photos and display there...you must be ecstatic :).

    Ya I noticed the ridge on the armor being squared off. Looks like the edges around the center section as well were sharpened a bit. The paintwork on the armor is very nice.

    :cheers,
