    So the jachtgroen from Gamma was not the right one I figured out, so hop back to the store, exchanging it for another, which also was not the right one, but the store next to it had (brand is also Sencys), it dries longer, but layers are thicker and stronger. After removing the masking and some weathering, adding the decal and dullcoat final result is this.

    and the final result of my first paintup after 2 weeks. I know there can be made some improvements on details, but so far I am quite happy how it all turned out. Colors maybe a bit bright cause of the Phone and sun here. Comments and tips are welcome (also to improve my painting techniques for the JP.

    hi all again,

    major progress made. Now just some details and the Jetpack is to be done..

    Buttons for the gauntlets ordered@Conrad as well as the red LED.
    75 cm of pianohinge @ Gamma
    again paint, first primer, then silver, masking, matt black followed by crimson red. some weathering with misted black and all the other razor sanding in between all and finalle the matt coat from Humbrol.
    finishing the pianohinges and placing the nozzles, darts and magnets for the bottom part of the flamethrower (to put in tech later on).
    The hoses I did not need as much as I thought (of the 4 meter I bought) needed about 2m.
    the one on top I will still have to give a little bit of sandy misting, like in ref. pics.

    A couple of pics now:

    Honestly I thought the helmet would be the toughest, but these things are at least as tough because of the construction/size does matter here. I want a perfect fit for trooping.

    I started on the jet pack now... with a 3D rocket from toolguy301.

    Some more work done... but first I had to test if everything works walking around.Harness made with Toolguy's 3D printed set and a separate aluminum bar bought at the local hardwarestore, and straps scrounged from leftovers... It fits really well and comfortable and does not weigh much.

    After I wore the kit the first day, in a lot of light it showed that I need to weather the suit, spats and pouches a lot more...so here go the spats.

    But wearing the costume puts a big smile on the face, even though you dont see it.
    At FACTS in Belgium was the first time with 3 hours suited up. The JP still is in progress but I could not wait as my lady was with me.
    Did you know Boba had a love going with Mara Jade (could be in the new canon)?

    I got the thrusters and rocket from Toolguy as well, they are sturdy and the rocket fits perfectly into the JP. Before paint:

    Looking really good man! Making some headway now....you'll be done in no time. Well, not done, but wearable.
    One thing that stood out though was the upper cheek color. Looks black in the pic. Should be green with some blue to it. Nice looking though anyway!

    Hi. Its tamiya xf-17, which is used more often here a darkish green/blue hue. If I hold it next to ref. Pics dont see a difference. Pic is inside with flash so color stand out harder than they are.. thanks for the comment. I love to work on it.
