Boba Fett v3.0 – 3D Print – Armor, Left Chest Plate, Adding Damage

Making It Look Battle-Worn…

With the initial smoothing done, it’s time to add the physical damage…

I then used my soldering iron to heat up the plastic to create the dents.

After more studying of the screen shots, I noticed the dents aren’t just smooth dents, like you see on most of the vac-formed armor. So, I decided to add a bit more detail to the dents to try and make it a bit more screen accurate.
