    Wes' ESB Fett Build

    Finally decided to start my own build thread on here... how exciting.

    Anyways, I've been putting parts together for this guy since October/November and plan on being finished this coming October/November. I'm aiming for as much accuracy as I can afford working with my Garrison's GML to meet 501st requirements. It's been a fun journey already and I can't wait to have a finished suit.

    First thing I did was buy an ASOK Cold Cast from another member here. I can't begin to describe how incredible these buckets are and they aren't expensive at all. ASOK is a great guy to contact about them as well. My friend ZW painted it to be what it is today and I couldn't be happier.



    Next up is my ManOfWar studios Jetpack. Again, couldn't be happier with how incredible this kit was out of the box. Assembled and painted by my buddy ZW again. I'm waiting to get MoJo's stabilizer and DarkSide's beacon, otherwise it's 99% finished.



    Recently I got a package from Arkady for my vest, neck seal, flight suit and pouches and WOW. I can't recommend Carole enough because the turn around was a week exactly and shipping only took 2 days. The price is the best there is for tailored soft parts.



    I know I need to put the neck seal under the vest not the FS. Woops

    As of now, I'm waiting on an order of ManOfWar gauntlets, Bobamaker armor w/ knee darts and a Stormrider sidearm.

    Thanks for checking out my build!

    It looks great so far! It seems that those guitar racks are specially made for Fett jetpacks. Just keep the awesome updates (with lots of images) coming!

    I never thought of using guitar stands, I should get a few. Anyway the suit is coming along great and your buddy's paint jobs look really good.

    Thank you sir! His paint work is phenomenal. Definitely pick up some stands because they're great. They seen a bit front heavy but it's fine if it has a strap.

    The helmet & soft parts look amazing. That's a great helmet pic for reference as well. Is there a thread or can anyone let me know what the specific differences between the ESB and ROTJ helmets?

    Everything looks awesome. This is going to be a great suit. Well done. Where did you get your gloves? Also, don't forget to paint the inside of the thruster side caps red.

    Re: Wes' ESB Fett Build

    Got a question for you guys. What are my options for a sidearm holster? I honestly don't have the funds right now or else I would jump on that other spot in that interest thread in the cargo hold. I'm really worrying that when I do have the funds in a few months that there won't be any opportunities. Any thoughts?

    I know bobamaker makes a leather holster that was given the ok by my 501st advisor. I don't remember how much daz quoted me on it but I think it's around the same price as the FP holster. I can look at my old emails from daz and see if I have the pics and price if you would like.

    I've actually talked to Daz about it. I'm sure his holsters are phenomenal I'm just having a hard time paying the same amount the sidearm costs. This is the only thing I'm not liking about the ESB. I just wish it wasn't so rare!

    I hear you there man. The sidearm and holster pushes me towards ROTJ/SE more than anything. Its ridiculous how much the two are together. Great build so far btw

    BBF's belts are just awesome. I got my ROTJ/SE belt a couple weeks ago and shed a few tears of joy when I pulled it out of the box. Your build is looking great! Looking forward to how it progresses.
