    Thanks guys. I've got the diver's belt on according to Raf's pics, just slightly sticking out above the ammo belt. The sidearm hangs nice and snug, and looks just right.

    Thanks guys. I started working on a carbon freeze chamber display today. Not really sure how this is going to turn out but I'll keep you guys updated. If everything goes according to plan (yeah, right) it's going to be all lit up and awesome looking. I haven't injured myself yet so that's a plus.

    So far so good. Still a lot of work to do and some problems to work around, but progress has been good. Just a test shot with some lights. I was excited after I got all those shapes cut out.

    With that underlighting, just turn off the room lights and you've got a headless Boba to scare the kids.

    Alright boys, just got the lights wired up in this thing and snapped a couple pics. I think it looks pretty cool, and was a fun little project. What do you guys think? I could post a little tutorial if there is interest.

    I'll just make a sandbox, I had to chuckle when I read that. Great work Matt, your setup is going to look great. A flashing rf and your all set lol. Just busting them for you, great work and fantastic suit.

    Made them from boots I got at Target. Check the first page of this thread for info.

    Thanks for all the compliments guys. And I've seen some really cool ROTJ setups that are a little more complex than a sandbox, lol! Bobamaker has a really cool one on his site.

    Might I suggest window covers that match the base.

    You almost could use a little front light of some sort. Like a mini red flood to accent him.
