I just wanted to take a moment to say “hi” and give thanks to this community as I am about to set out on putting together a complete ROTJ Boba Fett suit with the goal of acceptance into the 501st. This will be first attempt at anything on this large of scale, but with all the information and help posted by you guys, it should be just as much fun as it will be work lol.
A little about my Fett project:
I’m currently awaiting some unpainted armor/soft props from BobaMaker and hope to find/make other key pieces through the help of fellow Dented Helmet members. I have some experience in painting and detailing, but this project will more or less be learning process as I go along. I plan on using an actual layering process of paint to give the most realistic weathering and damage effects. As for the key pieces I’m missing…I am still in need of a girth belt, shoes/toe spikes, shin tools, and EE-3 blaster kit. If anyone knows or recommends some great places for these items…by all means, please let me know (hopefully I’ll be able to post to the Cargo Hold soon).
In the end, I hope to document my painting steps and overall assembling of the suit to assist future enthusiasts who may want to take on the challenge of recreating such an iconic (and cool) Star Wars character such as the Fett. Thanks again everyone and I can’t wait to keep you posted!
