    yeah, replacing the darts once you're all built up is a huge pain.

    great looking set there. i did everything bit by bit, so i never got to see everything layed out before me like that!

    Well, the way I see it. We are constantly spending money to create our "perfect" Fett, so I figured to go ahead and start with the perfect armor.

    It bugs when some of these guys complain about not having the money instead of doing something about it. I work a full time job, go to school at night, married and have 2 kids. I do computer work on the side to fund my projects. When you put a little aside every month it doesn't take long to add up to a new set of BM armor.
    It is possible, you just need dedication and a little patience.


    BM does some great work doesn't he, clean as a whistle his parts are.
    Your not kidding, DAZ was a Mando blacksmith in another life.:thumbup

    Id get the aluminum shoulder and knee darts.
    Already working on it bro..

    Eventually I will get a set of Bobamaker armor but at the moment I'm experimenting with what I have.

    Work has begun.

    Here is a quick shot of my right plate using Evans armor stencils. He has done a killer job.

    This is minus the weathering

    Lookin good so far! I just broke down today and ordered my armor from DAZ. I got the whole shabang; back, cod, butt, knees, shoulders, chest, and collar. I'm so excited! This 8 weeks is gonna drag on! I wish I would have listened to Rip. I could be wearing it by now.

    None at all.
    Everything is sanded baby butt smooth and primed for you.

    Only thing I did was lay down a base coat of Aluminum because all my scratches are masked.

    Wes,

    glad to hear you are happy with Bobamakers items! I just purchased evrythinghe makes & it does put a "dent" in the wallet, but like you stated " if you want the best than you find a way to pay for it". Daz is doing my paint scheme as well. My wife thinks I'm crazy for the amount that I will totally spend to make my Boba Fett as dead on as it can get! I am also one of the first to purchase his new "jet pack". Let's just say the total amount doesn't come close to what I spent on my first car (1971 VW Karmann Ghia)! But I know it will be worth it when I join the 501st. Will keep you all posted.

    Re: Delta75 - BM Armor Project

    I attached mine, but get some more feedback from others here who may have more info on the best way of attaching it. I used snaps / velcro set up
