    Oct 25, 2009, 9:12 PM - The Second Journey Begins! #1

    Hi All,

    About to embark on my second journey with my armour build. Recently built a clone trooper and was accepted into the 501st (327 Star corps). So here I am back to square one with all the usual questions

    have my eyes set on a ROTJ Boba

    Is there any WIP (work in progress) threads that I can see how any boba builds have progressed so I can generally see what steps are involved in a build?

    Secondly, its time to source some gear. Can some one PM me details or some suppliers, i'd like to begin with a bucket and all the armour bits to get me started.

    Thanks

    Aidan

    Do some searching around. I was able to find just about all I needed to know just reading around in the recent threads in the last week. You probably should decide what kind of budget and accuracy you're looking at and go from there. Are you capable with building your own stuff or do you need to buy it like myself?

    id prefer to buy any hard armour bits and maybe make simpler things like straps etc. Im going for some thing relatively good quality and screen accurate. I just need a step by step guide as it feels like ive stepped into a giant sea of info again haha

    and you have stepped into a giant sea, and you're still in the shallow end. first off read this: http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showthread.php?t=17421 to get an idea of the price range you'll be looking at. after that, decide whether or not you want to keep going. if you do keep doing this, hit me up with a pm. i'm more than happy to help out a potential ROTJ fett, i got a lot of love for it since that's my costume of choice.

    you know it's funny you're trying to build a fett after finishing a clone and i'm trying to build a clone after finishing my fett.

    hey all, im located in australia, Victoria. Hit me up im more then happy to share my clone experiences with all. Was a long journey but worth it in the end. Just adding some minor refinements to it (fans and more weathering) and then ill focus on the fett and use the clone as a filler armour while i work on it. I cant troop often as i work shift work, so unless its planned way in advanced its almost impossible to get a day off.
