    Nov 27, 2011, 12:13 PM - Verbal21's ROTJ/SE - Almost Done #1

    So after getting rid of my Jango Fett to start my Boba Fett build, I finally started fit testing last night. This is how the knee armor looks on right now with the shin tools. The tweaks I've noticed I have to do are:

    1) rise the thigh pouches 1.5" higher
    2) lower the shin tools pouches 2" lower
    3) trim down the shin tools length

    Any other suggestions?

    instead of trimming the shin tools, i'd suggest taking the pockets off and either lower them or make new ones that fit the tools.

    I didn't even noticed the cutting tool hiked up, but it should be fine once I add velcro to keep them more secure. This is how they look when sitting properly inside the pockets


    But that problem is still the thigh pockets/kneepads/shin tools are just too bunched up. The bottom of the thigh pocket is practically on top of my knee and looking at pics



    If I compare this pic to the one in my first post, It really looks like I just need to have more space between the thigh pockets and the shin tools and I should be fine. I seem to have too much space on my upper thigh so 2" higher should do the trick

    The knees on that ROTJ suit are a little higher than it should be (at least this is how I see it). It's more like this:

    Great news, Terry. Thanks so much. I just tried on your jetpack metal harness and it's just so comfortable. I'm sure your ammo belt will be just as awesome

    So after a few set backs, I ended up selling everything earlier this year and only keeping my helmet and thought I could put this all behind me....Fast forward to a few months ago when I got back the gauntlets I originally commissioned and I was sucked right back into this project full swing and since my V2 Boba Fett Project has started, I'd like to give plenty of thanks to everybody who's helped.

    Master Replicas - Helmet
    Woody - Soft parts
    99CentTaco - Ammo Belt
    Clonecollector - MoW boots/spikes
    Crazy4BobaFett- Jumpsuit/vest
    RKT - all armor
    Fettronics - LED circuit board
    Spidey - Blaster
    Saint Nasty - Gloves
    MoW - Jetpack
    SEEKER - Jetpack strap/harness
    Shelby - Mannequin pose
    and last but not least, Darth Vorhee's - painting/assembling/guru/everything else. I can't thank all of you enough. I was going to update this once I get everything back from Lou but I just finished assembling the mannequin that Shelby re-posed and I'm so excited to finally be so close to finishing this. Here's a test shot with the blaster I took just to make sure it'll be secure,lol

    ok, a slightly lesser naked pic I promise he'll be fully clothed in the next one, I just had to get the flightsuit tailored a little bitand this is just a test fit of a majority of the parts. But yeah, I'm so close to the finish line, just waiting on shin tools and an MoW Jetpack and then I can sit back and just stare at this thing all day and night.

    thats a new reporter with style but i think you must bring those breast plates in a bit more, they are to spread out, other than that looking good!

    Indeed I was fiddling with the chest armor and I noticed one of the magnets wasn't there and I was going crazy looking for it all over my floor and it turns out it just got magnetized to another one. These little things are strong.

    haha yea they are! I noticed the armor JUSTt fits on the vest too. The slightly larger size of the RKD armor makes it a tight fit on the vest. If i realized that i could have hiked the collar up a tad more but i was able to get it pretty good, so with some shifting you should be able to as well.

    believe it or not, it's actually perfect...on me...which is what most matters anyway The thing is since my mannequin doesn't have quite the stomach weight I have, it sort of just bunches up. I'll probably put an old paintball padding shirt I have underneath it and with the flight suit on there as well, it should give it the bulk it needs to sit right on the mannequin.

    I was so excited to get the jumpsuit back from the tailor that I forgot to take more pics. I spent about an hour futzing the mannequin and adding bubble wrap to bulk up it's mid section a bit to help the flak vest get filled out more and I'm very happy with the results.

    Only thing missing are a couple more gauntlets hoses, and just waiting for my shin tools and jetpack. Can't believe how close I am after yeeeearssss. I'll try to take some more pics this weekend when I can get some good lighting in my place.
