I've been wanting to do this ever since dressing up as Boba as a kid. Now to get to work on an big kid version heh. Started with the helmet Click image for larger version.

    I think I'm horrible at taking pictures cause the helmet actually closely resembles Boba's helmet in shape, but for some reason it looks more narrow in pics.

    Put a little primer down. Still working on the shape. I feel like the right top side of the dome is higher than the left. Click image for larger version.

    Cutting out piece for the jetpack right now ... I got thick styrene which I'm kind of hating right now but I wanted it to be sturdy without having to fiberglass it. Click image for larger version.

    Going in between the helmet and started working on the jetpack... I've figured where everything is supposed to go with the exception of these pieces Click image for larger version.

ID:	74390 there's another set of pieces that look the same just a little slimmer and smaller. Can anyone help me out? I feel like I don't need them, but they were there so I just want to make sure before I start glueing things. I'm using WOF templates.

    That is correct but the first pieces that you showed are the pieces to box those in. They should create a bottom for those pieces to give the sides something to glue to.

    There is a similar pieces for the white area as well.

    It would be up to you if you want to use them but they would help in the strength of that area on the pack.

    I almost didn't want to build this part of the missile again but im glad I did. the one on the right is the first one where i couldn't get it cylinder at all and the one on the left is the one I just built where everything looks much better and i won't have to do much filler work on it.

    Finishing up the tanks. I don't know if this could help anyone but I couldn't get the right thickness with a 2" pvc pipe so after wrapping the ends with 2 sheets of 1mm styrene the thickness is perfect and the endcaps fit snug Click image for larger version.

    I keep jumping around so I don't get bored. I did build a new helmet though which looks alot better than the old one. Right now I'm waiting on my jumpsuit, but bought all the fabric I needed for all the other soft parts. Pretty exciting. Decided to work on my belt though just to change things up a little. I'm using this tutorial by StrumFett http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f20/w...tionnal-44124/. Basically just traced out all my pieces. Click image for larger version.

ID:	75660 I wasn't sure at first which Boba I wanted to do, I was going to just take parts of each Boba that I liked. I've decided on a special edition Boba hence why all the pouches heh.

    anyone who built their own belt am I to understand that when you do the strap you just take your waist size and add 6 inches?

    the belt overlaps by about six inches, so i'd make it about 12 inches longer than your waist size, i think that would make more sense
