    INTEREST: LOWER COST METAL HARNESS RIG

    * POST MODIFIED, 15 Jan 2010 *

    Fist and foremost - If you are looking for a "Screen Accurate" harness, please see Bobby Fett UK's thread, Metal Harness Rig Run, at the following link. I have yet to see better.

    http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showt...arness+rig+run

    As for this harness, to keep the cost down, the unit is designed NOT screen accurate, but a good likeness. Construction is all Stainless Steele. Approximate weight of kit is 3 lbs.
    Approximate lead time is 2-3 weeks.

    Kit Price: $200 plus shipping

    Includes:
    One Harness Frame Assembly, all Stainless Steel (assembled as pictured)
    One set Stainless Steel Upper Jet Pack Hooks with backing plates
    One set Stainless Steel Lower Jet Pack Hooks with backing plates

    You wil need to add your own straps and hardware. If you cannot sew, the straps can be assembled and attached via rivets.

    Interested Parties:
    (Run not limited to ten units. Ten is minimum needed)

    How accurate are these? I know Mojo-Fett's/ BFUK's rig is pretty spot on! Right down to the softparts.

    Like I said in the original post above:

    "To keep the cost down, the unit is designed NOT screen accurate, but a good likeness."

    My best suggestion is to compare the photos and drawing to Mojo-Fett's/ BFUK's rig. The drawing does have a few dimensions on it.

    As I really had not intended a run (it really just work out this way), I figured I would bend up a couple plates myself for mine. I can check into it, but I'll need to research as I have no dimensions, nor have I assembled one.

    Re: INTEREST: LOWER COST METAL HARNESS RIG

    Question for those who have expressed interest:

    I had originally modeled this harness late in 2007 using pics I found on Yahoo of the original. I realized later that they came from this forum . A couple week ago, I modified the bend radius hoping to keep the cost down. I am a little concerned about fit.

    So my question to you: How similar are the openings at the bottom of the back armor between armor makers? Anyone care to post the height and width of the bottom cut-out on their back armor?

    I would appreciate your help. I am posting revised views of the harness. Only small differences. Cross bar mount is now .5 x 8.1, was 1 x 9. Added rivets to show cross bar attachment. The logo I just could resist . But way to expensive for laser engraving

    Re: INTEREST: LOWER COST METAL HARNESS RIG

    i'd be very interested in getting on this list, however, christmas is not a good time of year for me to be buying more boba fett. is there any chance of another run sometime in the future? i'm sure i'm not the only one in this situation. if that's not possible, then how soon are you planning on starting this run?
