    It looks great. What green did you use on the armor? (if you don't mind me asking)
    Ask away, my friend. I used Spruce green, then a series of dirty washes, then misted with black. The center diamond is just Hunt Club Green.

    Arms and gauntlet test fitting. I need to play around with the positioning and what not, and the gauntlets still need a ton of work, but this is the basic idea.

    Man, I bought the same hands and they were no good! Now I know what to do with them. Thank you!

    Slowly coming along. I had to cut off the entire right shoulder and reposition the arm, but I think I'm getting there. The arms kind of sag under the weight of the blaster, but I should be able to fix that later.

    Thanks guys. I think the arms are pretty much finished. I used 1" pvc fittings and a short length of pipe to attach them to the mannequin. This way they can come off If I want to remove the vest or flightsuit and they can swivel if I want to change the position. I'm pretty happy with it, what do you guys think?

    I was able to reposition the right arm again and get him to hold the blaster a little better. This thing just looks so much cooler now, like an actual person. This is still very much a work in progress, and there is a lot more work to be done. Thanks for the encouragement, guys.

    I can't get over how natural and lifelike this is. It really does look like Jeremy Bulloch is standing in your living room.

    Thank you so much guys. I'm really glad you guys think it's cool. The whole idea was to make it look less like a costume on a mannequin, and more like Boba Fett just hanging out in my basement. So I think I'm on the right track. The arms were kind of a pain to get positioned right, but I think they're good now.

    I got a little more painting done on the gauntlet accessories.

    Definitely need to show how you build the wooden framework of the mannequin, I've been looking for a mannequin for months for my Fett but I've been scared of them not being too strong. Besides, I don't want my Fett to be in a 'fantastic' pose as if he's modelling! This is a great thread for a mannequin too!

    Thanks guys. The mannequin is actually just solid foam, no wooden structure. I did stick wooden dowels through the legs and torso for extra support though.
