Hello and greetings from Finland!
I have been a long time lurker here, actually I have been here before Mojo-Fett... It is time for me to actually get something done on my Boba Fett project....
I first began this project over seven years ago, and had to put it into rear to get my Ghostbusters outfit ready. Little over a year ago, I contacted the local Nordic Garrison people, and I have been supporting them from then on. Before this year, there has not been any Boba Fett's in Finland, and Teemy (Frenzy) had the opportunity to get in first, with his stunning ESB Fett.
I am gunning for the second place, with RotJ SE Fett.
I was in luck, last december, when a retiring SE Fett builder decided to get rid of his gear. I went for the bundle, and got most of the hard items at half price. I had, just prior to this, ordered the flightsuit and flak vest from Bobamaker, so everything got a great head start.
I also ordered the jetpack from BobbyFett UK at the same time, and went for the fully painted one, as I had no space at that time to get painting, adn the RotJ colours are way too difficult for me, as prior to this, I've never used an airbrush before.
Here is a test fitting for the parts. The velcro attachment for the chest armour is offplaced due to my mistake, I am hoping to get that fixed as soon as possible
All paints are Humbrol paints, save from the primers which are normal spray can stuff.

That is the most that I can think of for now. I'll update this with more pictures later on, I need to go to work soon.
I'd love to hear your thoughts on the armour. I am not sure if I have gotten it right, and I want this to be as accurate as I can. The scratches were done with RafaelFett's stencils, I never could have done them without those, Thanks!
I am hoping to get this finished in this summer... Here's hoping..
