    Re: Another Bounty Hunter in training...

    Great to hear guys! I appreciate it a lot.

    Clonecollectors holster scratchbuild sounds really good. I have no experience of working with fibreglass at all, so it didn't even cross my mind to use it as part of the sidearm holster build! Would you happen to have pictures of it? After all this one is just for the time being, until I can find a more accurate replacement.

    Thanks again for the compliments, I look forward to completing this soon and also upgrading the helmet!

    Cheers,
    -Frenzy

    Re: Another Bounty Hunter in training...

    Today I installed the last required costume components! We held a photoshoot and I got to pose in the completed costume. Holster and helmet upgrades are on their way, but they will proceed in the background. As I've learnt from here, a Fett costume is never completely finished, but now I'm just gonna lean back, wait for feedback or correction instructions and enjoy the newly completed project!


































    Tired but happy.


    Cheers,

    Looks amazing! Well done!

    One thing though.... i may be wrong but i think the neck seal should be a little tighter fit around your neck.

    Looking great!!! Congrats for getting here!

    You'll get a feel for what to change... you'll continually do that. But that's the fun of being Boba Fett!

    Thanks for the feedback guys! I'll definately keep it evolving and am open for any and all suggestions and ideas. It will be a long run campaign to make it better and better as the time goes forward. I'll see if I can tighten the neckseal some way. Any other improvement ideas?

    My new helmet kit should be here next week or so, and I'm waiting Stormrider to start his holster run to replace the scratchbuilt one I have. I look forward to trying the helmet paintjob, there has been a lot of inspirational threads in TDH Helmet section lately...

    Cheers,

    Great work man! Hoping to see my Fett besides yours soon. The Boba Twins of Finland... That will never go out.

    But everyone, check Frenzy's posting dates! He accomplished this in less than half a year! I saw those Fettpride armour bits untrimmed just before last December!

    Cheers guys. I have finally reached the initial goal and I'm now BH-8938 of the 501st Legion! First Fett in Finland, feels great.

    I want to heartfully thank the Dented Helmet as a community and database as without the magnificent resource and helpful members this wouldn't have turned as it is. Thanks for everyone who have shared their thoughts so far and especially to clonecollector for gauntlets, support and cheering along the way. Also a big hand to the talented propmakers on this forum. You do a great favour for us!

    As soon as my new helmet gets here, I'll start a painting progress blog under this same thread. I hope I'm able to pull it off.

    Cheers,
    -Frenzy

    A slight bump, but just wanted to show this stuff off! I finally got to make my first troop in the 501st, a great experience! We were entertaining the kids and promoting an Xbox360 Kinect play area in a local amusement park. The new Star Wars game was well presented and they wanted our garrison to send a couple of characters to appear near the Kinect area. Lots of happy faces. Again, it was a blast and a good start for my Fett career!

    I had a small accident with the EE-3 blaster though and that's why it lacks a scope in some pics... Nothing dramatic and it will be good to go again this weekend as we have a bigger trooping event.













    Cheers,
    -Frenzy

    Sorry to hear your scope came off. Hope it's an easy fix!

    Your suit looks amazing! But I'm not sure in which episode I saw that clown...
