    Sep 15, 2013, 7:05 PM - New Boba on the Block #1

    Hey guys, I'm new to this forum. I've always wanted to build a Boba, and now I've had the chance to start. I've been sort of creeping on this website, learning the ways of the Boba build, and I'm created a blog of the process of mine. There was another blog I saw someone did of a Boba, and it was set up great, so I wanted to use the same website.

    I would like to post on here and learn more from you guys, you are a very knowledgable bunch of people. If you could leave any tips that would be awesome, I'm going for 501st so if you see anything that I need to change don't hesitate to let me know. I feed from constructive criticism, it's how we improve in what we do.

    Building Boba Fett

    Thanks for reading!

    Yeah.
    They are probably going into the box of shame and never coming out.

    I bought these from a guy a friend had told me about. Last time I do that, ey.

    Thanks, I'm going to be posting updates again when I get the ears done. Just need those, the rangefinder, and the small details and it'll be done.

    Here's a bucket update.
    I personally feel like Bob's helmet is going to be a very damage item, with all the bounty grabbing he does. So I felt like I needed to scratch it up quite a bit, a lot more than I've seen anybody else on here do to their helmets. It's a personal flavour I like, so let me know how you guys feel about it.

    I'm not too fond of the kill stripes, but I'll have to work with those to make them better. And I still have a lot of silver retouching to do. Rangefinder and stalk haven't been started yet, they still need to go through some sanding.

    1371407_10151921873070520_1714958596_n.jpg1379138_10151921900030520_1313018719_n.jpg711495_10151921899975520_770042350_n.jpg1370479_10151921872950520_1327005399_n.jpg

    I'm also not sure why images aren't working as thumbnails. Anybody know? It's mildly irritating.
