    WIP: Fett 4 Reals SE Boba

    So Ive been lurking a while and joined up not to long ago, and have been ordering and ordering and ordering some more. Today I got in a few major things and wanted to start showing what Im working with and start showing progress.

    As far as pieces go
    Bucket MSH1 Helmet from thundrkiss already painted will be repainting eventually, also have a FP Budget helmet...was thinking about doing it in ROTJ but may end up doing it in holiday special after thinking more about it.

    Flight suit, Flak Vest, Neck Seal, Spats, pouches all from Loanstar Great stuff need to weather the Flight suit but its top notch very well made. Everything Fits GREAT as far as neck seal and vest go theyre like he made em just for me...Length of the vest perfect, neck seal closure evrything is more amazing everytime I check it out its better!

    Ammo belt and chin skirt Booboo Fetts belt amazing craftsmanship nothing more to say its very nice! The chin skirt works tucks into the seal perfectly.

    MOW gauntlets need to assemble them but Ive gotten alot of info here to do that, And Ill be painting them once I get the chance.

    Wookie braids and Cape both from woodman hes another great craftsman great stuff braids are really nice.

    Shin tools made from Sintra from a member...theyre ok need to upgrade the sonic beam weapon to a paterson everything else is really good looking

    Decals Lucky31 sent me all the decals theyre pretty nice looking need armor to put em on!

    Parts on order
    FP Armor, and budget helmet...Gloves galactic bounty hunters next run...Dsoniks Girthbelt...Evo boots shin darts and gauntlet darts...Serenitys studs...

    Here are some pics of what Ive gotten so far

    Been adding some DIRT! Loanstar said to use dirt and it sure works! And you can always remove it as he said

    That bucket looks really good. I'm surprised you want to repaint it. But I guess if you are going ROTJ, you have to, otherwise you have to do the SE Fett. Looking good. Anyway we can get a close up of those braids?

    Here are some pics of the Braids and my weathering progress on the flight suit....I think the lower legs need some more dirt!

    Soaked some Teabags in some water but COFFEE is where its at as far as getting it nice and dirty looking, Woodman recommended it and so did Dsonik...I want to add some black dirt to it now that I got the brown sand on it but all the dirt here is desert sand literally so I may get some charcoal to use as we used it in survival school and it works very well at dirtying things up

    So you just soak the bags and then kinda pad it over the suit?

    Re: WIP: Fett 4 Reals SE Boba

    With the coffee and tea both I got some warm water soaked it in there squeezed it out then rubbed the **** out of it into the suit....Dirt works really good to with a little water as well. Rubbing it in with a damp towel. Heres where Im at with the weathering put the vest and neck seal on to give an idea of how much dirt was added. Not sure if i want to add weathering to the vest and seal or not opinions? In pics and screen shots it looks to be clean but some it looks weathered lol

    I would highly recommend adding weathering to the vest and neckseal, or else it's going to keep that really clean sheen to it. If you look at the reference photos, you'll be able to see where there's a lot of subtle weathering on both articles. I'd say go for it.

    The weathering on the jumpsuit looks amazing. Definatly looks like the same weathering i have seen on other SE suits, which i think looks correct.
    As far as weathering on the vest and neckseal, just lightly mist it with some gray and black paint. No more, no less.
