    Thanks bcurtis!
    Dying the girth belt with some RIT dark brown dye. I like how it's looking so far!

    Looks great! What colors did you use? It looks like there is a hint of brown in there.

    Re: ESB Boba Fett Build

    Thanks! So I used just a flat rustoleum enamel and then I used just a tiny bit of brown, I think there's a combo of the little bit of brown and then a reflection of our dresser in there as well lol. But yeah got just a hint of brownish gold in there with the black.

    Scored an airbrush setup! Also grabbed some stain to get my girth belt finalized.

    I would love to see an update on how your girthbelt came out with that stain.

    Jeepers creepers been a while guys, sorry!! We'll I have started up some weathering on the boots. Will be playing around with it more. In the pics I've seen, there is def some yellow/brown (ish) weathering along with black on the boots. Just using some of my acrylics on these. Wet painting method.

    Re: ESB Boba Fett Build

    So I have some of the soft parts! Utility pouches, ankle spats, and a jumpsuit. Painting/weathering to do on these. Also for the stain on the girth belt, I don't know if it is quite red enough. Lighting from camera is a little off. Snagged one of Stormrider's Nemrod holsters.
    As far as "stuffing" for the pouches that is all I have for now lol

    Re: ESB Boba Fett Build

    Hit the flight suit with some more weathering. Mostly used the car wheel/tire approach. Really nice

    Re: ESB Boba Fett Build

    That looks great! What exactly is the car wheel/tire approach? I have an idea, but some clarification would help.

    Re: ESB Boba Fett Build

    Basically yes haha. I took my suit and just rubbed it on the tire, the rims, and the wheel well. Worked really nicely. Black of course and a bit of brown in there too. I dragged it around on the driveway some as well.

    Re: ESB Boba Fett Build

    Hopefully your neighbors didn't see you doing that in your driveway or they'll think you're nuts. "Why is mhlayne rubbing that brand new suit inside his wheels?" "Who knows, hon...?"

    Just did a little inventory of where I am at so far.
    Girth Belt (need to add some more red)
    MOW Boots (adding some more weathering)
    US Divers (I believe I have to change the navy belt to black)
    Nemrod Holster (an older one of Stormrider's, real nice)
    Heiland Flash Tube (love it)
    4x20 Rifle Scope (will probably end up hunting for something a bit more accurate)
    Fettronics Chest Lights (amazing!!!)
    Humbrol Paints

    *Ordered:
    Fettpride Armor
    ASOK FP and GMH Helmets
    Woodman Flak vest and neck seal
    Boba Trooper Female Mando Armor (outfit for my wife Wooot!!!)

    Thanks! So my younger brother is just finishing up his welding and fabrication certification and he knows a guy who does machining...
    I'm stoked! He's got blueprints of pretty much all the metal parts and is gonna work em for me. (The tip on this rocket is too long, he's aware of the correct size no worries)

    Re: ESB Boba Fett Build

    Thanks guys! DeathProof, I suppose I could have taken it to a tailor, but I found the material a bit thick for my liking. Working on getting on made using a lighter-weight material, also it'll be in white so that I can dye it which will be great
