    Mar 18, 2008, 1:48 AM - Gold thrusters?? You must be crazy! #1

    So. . .
    Much like the decision to make my gunstock a natural wood grain, I have also decided to make the thrusters on my ROTJ jet pack gold. Yet another "artistic liberty" I'm taking to add a certain uniqueness to my Boba. I'll never get into the 501st with a costume like this but who really cares?? No offense to the 501st. Someday I'll send in my application when I have a completely film accurate costume, but that will have to wait.
    I really want to make a Boba costume with a little more flare. I imagine if he had the money, this might be something he would do to pimp his ride a little more. I've even considered doing a complete overhaul on my armor to give it gold plating. I would still do the regular paint job on top of it, but everywhere that normally had silver showing through would then be gold.

    Just a thought.

    Subject now open for scrutiny.

    I'm not sure if I like them or loathe them! At present they do remind me of chintzy bathroom fittings However with a bit of weathering up, along with the rest of the jet pack I have a feeling they may grow on me!

    Well, if your going for shock value, you certainly got my attention .
    if your going to do that, then why don't you just do a custom mando??

    Because I still want to be Boba, but with a few of my own personal touches added.

    I think we're getting closer to determining the origin of the jet pack thruster prop parts.

    You could purchase another set of thrusters to paint the correct colours, that would fly with the 501st. With such a small change, I don't think many people would notice, even GMLs. Being a Boba GML, I would notice this, but many costumes seep through into membership that have one or two minor errors that are or aren't worth noting. I would say go forth with your 501st application and see what happens.
