    My foray into boba fett esb

    I have been a member of this forum for quite a while ,and i have dreamed of building a boba fett as long as i can remember , long ago i had a dickies jumpsuit ,homemade vest ,and a dp 95 , that was as far as i got , over the years i have had many different helmets ,but ive never really put the effort in , well now is the time , recently i ordered a whole bunch o stuff , and this will be my build thread , and my product review thread .
    1. helmet = fettpride budjet version , ordered ,and paid
    my plan is to add extra fiberglass ,and a coat of gelcoat to sturdy and smooth it out , then i am going to do a full on layered paint job . i have done many topical jobs , and i think im talented enough to pull it off .
    2. jetpack = MOW , ordered and paid , and shipping monday ..
    still haven't figurered out all the mounting procedures , but ill get to that later , again going esb layered
    3. braids , and cape = woodman
    4. vest =cucblack ordered paid ,shipped ?
    5. armor fp version 1 = traded with another member on another board
    6. jettpack straps , collar , blaster , and backplate = fettdad , so far best possible customer service , shipping this week
    7. ammo belt = 99centtaco
    8. jumpsuit =arkady sewforus
    9. boots = jango wes
    10. girth = cojake

    And here we go

    I can highly recommend Fettpride's holster and Mojo's sidearm. Extremely awesome products. BFUK shin tools as well.

    Re: My foray into boba fett esb

    Well its christmas in janurary , got home to day to three packages , first off
    1. Woodmans cape = cape is very nice , I don't lnow about colors (colorblind) but he definatly put some time into constructing and weathering it , To me its perfect , and a fast and pleasent transaction
    2. cucblacks vest = again very nice vest i tried it on over a sweatshirt , and i think it fits perfect . the only thing im not sure of is the pre attached velcro , while i'm glad i don't have to do it . i just hope the armor covers it .
    3. fenixprops helmet padding , forgot i even ordered it , but its very nice sides , back , and top seem beffier than mr's , which should stop the boble head effect .
    all in all im happy with my purchases so far , more to follow. my jetpack is suppose to ship today ,and my blaster tommorrow . hopefully i will have them both by the weekend .

    Duly noted And on that note, I think you overestimated what you're going to have to do to the helmet when you get it. Keep in mind, I just wanted people to be aware that the new budget's weren't built to be cranial protection devices (construction hard hats) , but they're not flimsy by any means. I think you'll be quite surprised with the quality even for a budget

    I wasnt tryin to say anythin bad about your helms , i just assumed it would need some work , because of the price , and what you had stated in your xmas thread ) that being said i know you are the man , and it will be the nicest helm i have ever laid hands on ..

    Re: My foray into boba fett esb

    so after looking at how others have attached there armor , i decided velcro wasn't going to cut it , but i didnt want to punch a bunch of holes in my vest . so i pulled most of the velcro off, a nd went to walmart and picked up a buch of these sew on snaps , sew'd them on and 5 min epoxy to the armor , and walla sturdy yet easy to move if its not straight

    You've done some amazing work there! I like the sew on snaps for the armor... I have to look into that now! Good luck!

    Goodness gracious bro, you are moving fast.... can't believe how fast you are getting your bit's and how fast you are painting up....
    My build started in August (more or less) and i'm expecting to be finished by the end of February... then i'll start my put together thread...

    I'll second what clonecollector has said... I really like the idea of those sew on snaps.... I too don't want to punch holes in my flak vest either....
