    Heya,

    Just keep a watchful eye on The Cargo Hold and I'm sure you'll get what you need over time. Just remember the site isn't keen on outright "WTB" threads, but between your explanation above and asking the right questions here and there, you should be good to go.
    Best of luck to you and stay safe wherever you're serving..

    I dig the steampunk Boba!

    mostly looking for the armor pieces and jetpack i want to go with the aluminum i'll keep an eye out as for the other thing such as boots jumpsuits and vest i can either make or find access too the real jumpsuit itself isn't too far from an actual aviators suit in the military which i can buy for like 40$ and the vest well i maybe be able to score an actual flak vest lol

    Start reading and reading stuff here, if your wanting to build a Boba as I guess you are in the Boba Fett section and all, read this the armor and helmet forum. Check out the cargo hold like the last guy said theres people selling stuff there all the time. Checkout these links

    The milspec flightsuit wont work for u at all bud neither will a flak vest if ur going for accuracy, if ur going for a custom mando then they will work but not for boba not at all

    Thanks for the link to that guys armor def going to check him out as thats mostly what im just looking to buy as for the flight suit im pretty sure i can tailor the rest of it sewing is just one of those things you learn navy flight suits have pockets and everything in almost the same places or some coveralls we wear on the ships and if youve seen our gunners vest which are dated to like the 70's still they could work if i take the plates out and a little tailoring, could also make a cape out a sea bag or one of our desert tents

    ship engineer coveralls would prob do well then they got all the pockets as well as the ankle straps and are just about the right color
