[FONT=Calibri]Slowly but surely I am upgrading my Rubies Fett costume. Just as a re-cap, I’m poor and have always dreamt of having a life-size Boba Fett to call my own. Enter the Rubies costume which I found for about half price… A year later I am still working to make it look good… Here’s a link to my thread about the baby steps. http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f20/m...-i-lose-34933/[/FONT]
[FONT=Calibri]The next phase is the jetpack. This thing is a hot mess. When I received mine, it was cracked all along the top. Additionally, it’s warped beyond the point of me being willing to repair it. Basically, I want to try to make it look decent until I have the funds available to upgrade to a good one.[/FONT]
[FONT=Calibri]Step one, I had to fill the crack along the top with epoxy putty then sand the Dejesus out of it. Now at least it’s pretty smooth. [/FONT]
[FONT=Calibri]Second was to use auto filler on the sides and once again sand them until smooth. It isn’t perfect but it’s a heck of a lot better than it had been. [/FONT]
[FONT=Calibri]Third was to tackle the rocket… I’m going to remake the rocket but decided to keep the base vents. So first I used epoxy the glue it to the center tank then used the auto filler again to fill in the gaps. It’s already an improvement. [/FONT]
[FONT=Calibri]Tonight, I sprayed it all with a base coat of paint. Tomorrow I’ll start taping it off and maybe construct the rocket. I’ll keep y’all posted. [/FONT]
And yes, in the close up of my hand and vent, that is a Sega Dreamcast on my floor.
