    My first Boba / a ESB WIP

    Hi folks!

    This is my first thread on TDH
    I spent most of the time here in the Cargo Hold hunting for parts.
    Now that i have most of the parts together or on the way, it is time to start a wip thread and share my build process and collect/discuss thoughts and ideas

    Here is my Setup so far:

    - animefan resin helmet kit (reinforced with fiberglass)
    - all softparts from Loanstar
    - MOW Boots with selfmade spikes
    - armor parts from RKD
    - selfmade Shin tools from original paterson parts
    - Ammobelt Bobamaker
    - girthbelt from my wifes horse
    - gauntlets MOW
    - scratchbuild holster

    My armor parts and gauntlets are on their long journey to germany but here are some pics of my actual status

    Good luck with your build! Looks like a really good start! Best wishes from another german Fett.

    Thanks mate! I also think it should be a solid setup, not high-end but good looking at a "affordable" price.
    Would be great to troop with some other german Fett's!Maybe with 501st, but i'm not sure if i can fulfill the requirements for registration. Just heard that it would not be easy, especially with a Boba costume

    From what I can see if you keep going the way your going you will get approved. I had to re submit a few pictures for mine etc but it would come down to your GML at your 501st squad. Good luck and have fun!

    I started working on the dome section.
    Pulling off the masking fluid is exciting every time, the magical moments during the paintjob (-:

    Looking really good! Which paint list is that? Jayvee's? And are you doing stencils or freehand?

    Thanks mate!
    I don't really know whos paintlist it is, but i use the attached pic as a lead and mix the colors to my own preference. I mask mostly freehand with one eye on the stencils to give my paintjob a bit of a personal note

    Wow, amazing. Your skill is on point. I am not nearly as artistic as you so I am definitely feeling overwhelmed when it comes to my build. Good luck, doesn't look like you need it though. haha

    Great work so far, quick question, are you painting with an airbrush or something else?

  13. #13

    Re: My first Boba / a ESB WIP

    Thanks guys!
    I use an airbrush for the bigger areas. I would say i use the airbrush and my fine brushes 50/50 on this paintjob

    Re: My first Boba / a ESB WIP

    Here are some pics of my finished helmet in fading daylight. Maybe i add a few more details in the future but for now i will leave it as it is and start working on the armor parts

    Lookin great m8! Btw, what kind of masking fluid do you use?

    Re: My first Boba / a ESB WIP

    Thanks KaiMartin!
    I use PC Flexmask usually used for soldering masking. Works great, with no bleeding and dries pretty fast

    Some little progress on my Boba. I finished the work on the softparts today. Lots of snaps for the pouches and the vest. I also reworked the spats, boots and my EE-3

    I also tried to achieve that spurs effect with tiny jingle bells in the shin pouches and it sounds awesome (-:

    Thanks Matty Matt

    I added lots of snaps for the cod piece and Butt armor. I also added snaps to the shoulder armor. Now everything seems to be attached pretty safe (-:
