    Thanks!
    I've really been scrambling to get what I can done before my deadline so I haven't really posted in a while.
    I'm gonna try and post an update and the end of today.
    Sorry guys!

    This build is looking great! I'm sure you must be working at a whirlwind pace but if you get a chance would you mind sharing what material you're using for the armor? Is it sintra? And is that the same for the gauntlets? I'm starting an ESB build myself but haven't gotten past the helmet yet. Still building up courage to start the rest. Keep up the good work!

    Ok I know I said I'd post pictures a few days ago and then didn't but I have the day off from work today so I'll definitely post this afternoon. Sorry

    Alright so I didn't post the last couple of times I said I would, but I've really been scrambling. Here's what I've got so far and the list I made for the next few days. What do you guys think?

    Best of luck brother. I felt overwhelmed just looking at your to-do list. Things are looking great though.

    Thanks! It is overwhelming, but rewarding. And I'm sorry Swordman120, I didn't see your post until now. All of it is scratchbuilt from the WoF templates using 3mm Sintra, including the gauntlets. I boil a pot of water and place the pieces in it to heat them up, but lots of people use a heat gun.

    Any progress forward is better than no progress at all. Looking good so far.

    Got the Flamethrower and ammo belt done and made progress on the jetpack and harness. I will post pictures when I get back from work.

    Worked on a bunch of little things yesterday but my main progress was the flamethrower. I know it's too long but I'll fix it before I go for 501st approval in December.

    Thanks for the reply, brother (I was formerly swordman.) I'm going to have to find some sintra somewhere and give this a try! Also, love the illustrations on your to do list. Haha

    Sign stores use Sintra all the time. I would call any local stores to see if they have any extra scrap pieces they'd be willing to give you. That's what I did and got more than enough for all of my armor. I would also recommend getting a heat gun. Allows you to target specific spots to heat and shape.

    Thanks for the tip! Actually had just called the sign store in town before I saw this. He doesn't keep sintra in stock but is getting me a price quote on a 4' x 8' piece. I'll have to check around for heat gun prices next.

    Great job so far Mandalorian 2112...we must see the final result on you!!! I'm SOOOOOOOO jealous!!! Waiting to start my scratch build this 4 day weekend...I'll be laboring away on LaborDay...woooohoooo!!!
  14. Aug 29, 2014, 9:49 AM - Re: WIP: ESB Fett build #39

    Good luck! I have to work until 6 today so as soon as I'm back I'll work until it's done . I just tried on what I can without help and it's looking pretty decent. Jetpack and harness are done it's really just little things left now but I'll have some people helping me tonight so that will help. It could be very late hen I finish and I'm heading up to Toronto really early so I might not get a chance to post again until after the weekend. And as soon as the weekend's over I start working on getting this up to 501st standards for December and start my custom mando.

    Congrats on getting everything together in time. Looks like you had a fun day.
  17. Sep 1, 2014, 7:19 PM - Re: WIP: ESB Fett build #42

    It was awesome! Ray Park and Nathan Fillion signed my helmet and both of them didn't realize it was scratchbuilt at first. Gotta adjust the backplate shape though, it kept pulling the collar into my shoulders.

    Hi! First of all I have to apologize "google translator" english! ;-)
    I have been following your thread with great interest, because I want to build a Boba costume for my 11 year old son.
    Everything should be built by myself (except the helmet).
    Just like you, I already encountered sintra as a building material.




    Sintra is some kind of PVC foam, technically. Therefore it is easy to handle, but due to its softness is not very scratch resistant.
    Do you protect your Sintra parts with some special liquid to make it shockproof?
    Best regards from germany
    Christian
