    rnbuda's ESB Fett WIP

    Hello everyone! After 6 years of lurking on this site I'm finally ready to start my Empire Strikes Back Boba Fett build! The plan as of right now is to build the top half on Boba Fett for my display much like The Dented Helmet's CV Boba Fett Display. Me and the wife are planning to move to Florida in the next 8-12 months and once the move is complete I'll be able to have a full and complete display. Thanks to everyone so far who's helped me out via PMing and Facebook with those stupid questions I've had!

    My first post in the WIP will be my Fettronics board with Rafalfett Sequence along with my newly acquired Batninja vest and neck seal which I was lucky enough to get from Lou in the Cargo hold!

    Helmet and Armor from Chris at FettPride are V4 armor kit and FPHII helmet!

    Next on the ordering list will be braids, cape, jetpack with harness and hooks, ammo and girth belts, sidearm and holster, and collar studs. I think I'm going to buy a cheap set of coveralls to practice dying and weathering before I invest in a full size mannequin to be able to ordered a tailored fit when the time comes.

    Thanks Verbal21! I'm hoping to have a pretty accurate Fett coming under SSC's price!

    I just finished weathering my cape using Rafalfett's soft goods cape template! I used razor blade to do all the damage and pastels and black primer spray paint to do the weathering! Whatca think?!

    Some small advancements on my build! I purchased a MOW jetpack from Christian and that should arrive mid-September and I look forward to building and painting that myself! It'll be the first kit of any kind that I will prep and paint! I also bought a sidearm holster from Chris at Fett Pride and that'll also arrive sometime later September or early October!

    Today, I got my ESB ammo belt from Mike aka Delta13Mike! Looks and feels great and the functioning ammo pockets are awesome! Very please and he's a great guy to work with! Here are some pictures!

    Good luck with the build. It's always nice to watch another ESB Fett taking shape. Hopefully I can steal some ideas from you along the way :-)
