    6 Days Ago - Apr 18, 2015, 4:07 PM - Boba Fett ESB. Newbie finally approved! #1

    Hello everyone!
    The week after easter I got great news. After sending pictures to GML at 501st, they decided my costume was good enough. For that I have to thank this forum, giving me so much inspiration and information and contacts with makers of braids/capes/darts etcetc!
    Here is a link to my approval pics:

    http://s1309.photobucket.com/user/la...?sort=6&page=1

    I got all the armor parts unpainted from Bobamaker, except the weathering on the flight suit, flak vest, and gloves. I added some weathering to it later in some areas, and will consider more weathering later. There is also a couple of tweaks that are being fixed, like general fitting and jet pack hanging low.

    I have never painted a thing with a airbrush in my life before I started, but with allot of great advice from this page, I surprised myself, and made it.
    I never managed the stencils technique, it failed so many times I nearly gave up...
    So I did all the painting by looking at the paint up threads and all the great pictures of the original costume, and applying Humbrol masking by freehand according to that.

    So please donīt judge me too hard, Iīm a total newbeginner.

    Thanks again to all!

    Itīs probably not the greatest Boba costume in the world, probably totally average, but itīs mine!

    And I love it And you that helped me by sharing your wisdom.


    Thanks

    Lars BH 15501
