    New Member Introduction and a couple of Questions

    Hey TDH!

    I've been a member on the forums for a couple of years now, but haven't really delved into this site untill this past few weeks.
    I'm From Melbourne, Australia, and have my EIB with a ESB TK, 501st number TK4258.

    My next prject is my ESB Boba. I've been looking through a lot of this amazing site, and becoming more and more humbled and overwealed by the talented people who have been making these insane looking costumes, and the maker's that supply the specific parts.

    My main question at the moment is a descrepency I have found in ESB VS ROTJ pertaining to the U.S Divers Belt. I've seen screen shots in ESB where there is no Diver's belt, but most of the ESB Costume's on this site have the Diver's belt. Can someone let me know if the Diver's belt is definatly part of the ESB Costume? as I'm trying to make a screen accurate costume.

    Thanks guys, looking forward to getting to know everyone here at TDH!

    Cheers,

    Dave.

    The ESB divers belt IS present on all the Boba Fett costumes (well, the belt buckle may be different on some of the costumes ==> Fett Harness) and is part of the Jetpack harness, which is an essential (but non visible) part of the costume:

    For more about the Jetpack frame with harness check out in the Gallery the Supertrooper suit.

    Just to add to what RafalFett has said, the esb does have the us drivers buckle/belt but throughout most of the movie it's hidden under the flac vest. I believe you can see it sticking out though in the darth vader/dinner table cloud city scene.
    There's a pic of it in the gallery somewhere.

    Edit: oh yeah, here: Boba Fett Empire Strikes Back Costume - HD Screen Captures - The Dented Helmet Gallery

    Thats awesome mate, thanks so much for "schooling" me! I'm now totally confident in getting that divers belt (Replica) with my ESB Build.

    That gallery is fantastic, great resource! thanks for sharing! once again, over time spent on the forum, I'm sure I'll get to know where to find all the information, but thanks for pointing me in the right direction!

    Hey Dave, nice to see a familiar face! I've just been getting into these forums again too but starting a Jango build (Ordered my helmet on the weekend!).

    Really looking forward to seeing you do your ESB Boba, I prefer it over ROTJ/prepro/special edition, I just think it looks so much cooler!

    Right on man! yeah I've ordered almost everything for the ESB fett, now I just have to sit back and wait, but while I wait, I'm going to buy paints, new dremmel, and other things so when it arrives, I can get my teeth sunk in!
