    My armor is now wearable!!!

    finally got my FP armor tweekend and the neck and back armor fittend, bolts added as well as the base coats of green. I will most likely add one more base coat but I was ecstatic that my entire fett minus the knees is wearable!!!! I am so close I can taste it. The helmet I decided to go with for my ROTJ (both becase I have it on hand and becase it works well for it) is my MSH-1. I am gonna mod the heck out of it and make it the ULTIMATE ROTJ! This is all the V2 armor... minus the knees... those are bradley knees.

    Your Boba is starting to look really awesome Justin! What method did you use to attach everything?

    I used sewn velcro to attach the armor. I used heavy gauge bolts on the armor and glued nuts inside Macintosh keys that Ripcode gave me for the sholder studs. Jet Pack is attached using a velcro strap harness that Man of War made with a hook system on the back that is very similar to the film used one.

    Justin, it looks great! As always, I am officially jealous. And if it makes Spidey feel better, he might finish his before I finish mine, at this rate!
