    WIP: Boba ROTJ

    Hi there:
    I was working on an ROTJ-Boba since August 2009, now here are the steps of work, (posted them already in The BHG, so sometimes, the explanations seem well known-sorry 4 that)...
    Please apologize my bad English....
    Here´s the list of the parts:
    Softparts: cucblack
    Helmet: Sgt.Fang
    Visor: Rembrand
    Stalk: Selfmade
    JP: MOW
    Blaster: Selfmade
    Gaunts: MOW
    Armor: FP V3
    Boots: Made by a German Garrison member
    Several small stuff made by myself or bought in the cargo hold

    I started up with making the cape out of a used tent square from the german army:


    Next part is the helmet, a Mystery from Sgt.Fang, TDH:
    It arrived like this:

    After raw Trimming (when Trimming was finished, the edges looked much better):


    The next part, i tried to make by myself was the EE3 - the base for it was an old toy-pistol, Plastic-barrel and a scope, bought on ebay for a few bugs...
    Here´s the result:


    The softparts are from cucblack(i know- the jumpsuit should be a light blue, then weathered grey and not a light grey suit-but nobody´s perfect), the armor is an FP V3

    Here we go:


    Still untrimmed


    One week later, all parts are trimmed and sanded, next is priming and painting....Ammo-Belt has also arrived...
    Girth belt, dyed by myself, costs: 20 Bugs:

    Next step:
    Gaunts are sanded...
    Armor is sanded and primed....




    Hinges glued into the Gaunts....




    The next weeks I continued like this:
    Armor sanded, primed and sprayed silver...


    Gaunts sanded and primed:


    Unfortunately, the jetpack was broken, so i had to strengthen the interior with plastics and synthetic glassfibre- filling compound , then drilled the holes for the thrusters....



    Right Gauntlet painted, left one is also painted, but still without rocket and buttons, and some weathering details are still missing- i´ve planned to make some layers of grime and so on, you can see later


    Armor painted, with the first layer, which is much too bright, but i´ve changed it within a second layer of paint and improved the scratch apttern to be more screenaccurate, you can see later…


    Details abdomen plate(also still much to bright:




    Left Gauntlet:






    Did some detailwork on the Gaunts, painted the buttons on the calc pad as senn on photos of the MOM...



    Working on the jetpack, first steps......


    And the results after weathering the Jetpack an Gaunts with some grime and airbrush






    Tried to make the Armor fit, but still too bright and with inaccurate scratchpattern…


    Helmet almost ready, visor fixed with Epoxyd-Putty: Just have to complete the interior and the LED´s on the RF


    Jetpack finished-with all decals:


    Jumpsuit weathered with an mixture of water, oil, and grime


    Next layer of paint fort the armor: mixed 80% Humbrol 78, deckgreen, 18% Humbrol 76, light olive und 2 % Humbrol black 33 :
    Photo with flashlights:


    …and daylight:


    Weathering follows (Humbrol 79 grey/ black 33 etc)...

    The codplate also got an new layer of colour(90% Humbrol 78 deckgreen, 10% Humbrol 3 brunswickgreen – as seen on some reference pics from MOM)
    I hope, you can see the difference:
    Daylight:

    with flashlights:


    Version 2.0 without decals…tried to make the scratchpattern as accurate as possible…



    Shoulders with weathering…



    And yellow highlights around the dents and scratches


    Details of the Abdomenplate….

    Girthbelt dyed darker:

    Codplate:


    And Version 2.0 almost completed, unfortunately photographed with flashlights, so everything seems a little bright…and the chest decals is weathered too heavy, but I changed that.



    Feedback and suggestions for improvement welcome…

    Re: WIP: Boba ROTJ

    Had to change some things to make the Fett acceptable for the 501st:
    Shoulders and knees sprayed darker yellow and weathered with orange an rust:


    I´ve also ordered a more accurate Ammobelt and sprayed the EE3- stick black...

    Looks fantastic buddy. And always keep in mind that if your goal is to make the 501sts, then by all means, do what you need, but as long as your happy with your own work, then thats what is most important, as you are sporting a terrific looking rotj fett. Top stuff!

    Ok, next few steps- the jumpsuit is at the tailor´s, think i gonna have results at the end of the week...i also made some alustuds by myself to make the attachment of the cape as accurate as possible (at the moment, it´s still attached with a button)- the cape will be replaced by an woodman-cape the minute, the cape arrives-Pics will follow...oh BTW:
    Approved:
    BH 5242
    The gloves and the belt also have been weathered....
    And there are still some more little steps to do, to make it a better costume

    Re: WIP: Boba ROTJ

    Got my Jumpsuit back from the tailor: The tigh pouches are set much higher now...The whole costume may look a liitle bit strange at the moment, because i draped it on a mannquin, that doesn´t fit exactly- but the most important thing to see is the pouches...think it looks pretty good now....the gloves are not the ones, i use when wearing the costume, this are my old Evo-Gloves....
    While wearing the costume, i use BM-Gloves....

    Very nice set up! I like the fact that a Boba build is not "instant gratification". The excitement comes in intervals with the acquisition of a new item or modification. Good work!
