Figured I'd throw my hat into this ring too, since I saw there's another Poe being produced.

I've been working on this one for a bit, and have made some pretty decent progress. A few more things to get in order before I can finish it off though.

The first two pics are when I completed the construction of the jacket (it was originally a P coat, I shortened it, and re-shaped the collar and lapels completely to be accurate to the design in the film). The shoulder patch is made of leather that I painted white and then painted on the red Starbird. This also shows off the holster rig I made, which is scratch built from leather.





This is the jacket as it appears now, with weathering done to both the jacket itself, and the patch on the shoulder. Rather than risk wrecking the jacket with sanding, I actually used brown acrylic paint to make it seem as though the leather's brown is beginning to show through the black finish, since Poe's jacket looks both brown OR black, depending on the lighting, I saw this as an accurate balance.



And finally we come to the blaster itself. For the paint job I did a base coat of black primer, then added a coat of metallic silver on top of it, and used black acrylic paint to add in the detailing and weathering spots.

I like it so far! The Visual Dictionary comes out today, so we can hopefully get some good images of the jacket! I really like your painting/weathering of the pistol!
