    My Boba Fett build thread

    I have almost all the parts now, and will start painting very soon. This is what I have, and what I am missing at the moment:

    Boba progress:

    Helmet - Bobamaker - painting WIP
    Chest armour - Bobamaker - waiting for paint to arrive
    Back/collar armour - Bobamaker - waiting for paint to arrive
    Cod/butt armour - Bobamaker - waiting for paint to arrive
    Toe spikes - Russrep - size modding needed
    Shin tools - Bobamaker - painting WIP
    Knee armour - waiting for Bobamaker knees to arrive
    Ammo belt - 99centtaco - needs weathering
    Shoulder armour - Bobamaker - waiting for paint to arrive
    Jetpack - BFUK - ready for painting
    Gautlets - need to go hose shopping, need to mount darts
    Gloves - need weathering
    Girth belt - needs prayers, the paint rubs off
    Shoes - need weathering
    Cape - need weathering
    Wookiee braids - need to make these, have hair
    Flightsuit - ordered from LadySewForUs
    Ankle spats - ordered from LadySewForUs
    Flak jacket - ordered from LadySewForUs
    Side pockets - ordered from LadySewForUs
    Balaclava - need to create pattern, sewing this myself (have lots of hair I need to cover)
    Jetpack harness - need belt material
    Chest lights - Fettronics V2.1.2

    What I need to find is the helmet decals, so if anyone know who can hook me up with some, I'll be happy to know.

    Any feedback on the setup is appreciated!

    You can see pics of a lot of the parts at the Boba section of my blog: http://tklisa.blogspot.com/search/label/Boba%20Fett

    Sounds like you got some the best gear on here for Boba!

    What you doing for your US Divers belt? What version of Boba you going for? You doing ROTJ or ROTJ SE?

    Good luck with your Boba completion!

    Thanks!

    I have the divers belt, just forgot to add it to the list! Need the seat belt material, though.

    Here's my stuff: (click for larger image)

    You mention on the blog that prepro 2 was the one that was to be ESB. While technically all the prepros were a step toward ESB. It was the prepro 3 that was given the green light.

    But after all that, I'm not sure why we don't call the white suit the prepro 1 and renumber everything up thereafter, since it really came first.

    Hmm, I think you sent me white harness webbing, didn't you? But if you have the seatbelt material, I'll be happy to buy some of that from you too!

    Oh, I got that wrong then.

    Re: My Boba Fett build thread

    I have done some progress!


    The boot spikes are glued with E6000 and are ready for silicone filling. I misted some black paint on them (had leftovers in the airbrush), but it's not enough to show on pictures.


    The shin tools are coming together and only need weathering and hairspray.


    The blaster is coming together. Need a lot of paint and weathering, but has a moveable trigger!


    One of my armour pieces painted green with silver and yellow battle damage still hidden under masking fluid.


    First coat of yellow on the jetpack. The paint is behaving really bad, so the next coats will be misted sloooowly.

    Re: My Boba Fett build thread

    Thanks! I really need your positive feedback now, because I just screwed up the masking of the helmet, and I'm sooo sick from the masking fluid smell. I managed to mix up the grey damage and the silver damage on the stenciles, so I just spent two hours masking the silver damage on my light grey helmet. Grrrr.

    But the other parts actually have some progress, so here's some more pictures for you:
