And yes, I'll be replacing all my shin tools eventually. The ones I have are based on the visual dictionary. Not really my cup of tea either. ;)
EE-3 nearly done. Just need a sling!
I have ordered a small sound board I will try to mount inside the barrel and add a sample from ESB when Boba fires at Luke. If anyone already has that sample I'd appreciate a link to it, or I'll make it myself and upload for the rest of you.
And just another picture of the chest armour for the sake of pictures. :)
Dude! Your suit's AWSOME!
Thanks Katzy. You are correct. :)
I just want to remind others that it's still true that buying a finished costume will almost always be equally time-consuming as starting from scratch. And almost certainly more expensive. Not that I mind a long project or am in lack of money.
This is why I love the Fett, the small things that make the big picture awesome.
Recieved the AM earth plugs from BojaGun today.
I got 4, but am keeping 1 as spare, so I only use 3.
Painted flat black:
Weathered and glue is curing on stock:
Used this picture is reference for the weathering and positioning:
Boba Fett Empire Strikes Back Costume - Carbon Chamber - The Dented Helmet Gallery
That's realy looking good.
Like your wip.
Hope to see this in Billund this year.
I had to redo the weathering because too much paint flaked off. I tried to capture my original look and this time I sealed the paint with some matt clear coat after weathering.
Very good job! congrats
One of the reasons why my Boba Fett is taking so long is because I keep buying found parts to replace things I already have, instead of focusing on getting my jetpack and new gauntlets. But that's fine with me! :)
Here I've pretty much finished modifying the sonic beam weapon (far left) and it just needs paint. The anti security blade in the middle needs the paddle in wood/plastic and paint. The rods on it are aluminum replicas from Mojo-Fett. The "knife" (far right) just needs paint, then I'll leave as it is.
Quite the difference from the budget shin tools I had before, based on the visual dictionary.
Now I'm on the hunt for the correct scope rings. I bought a scope with almost the right rings that I might use for a while, until I get the real deal.
Those new shin tools are awesome compared to the old ones and I love the idea to not convert the Survival Knife with blade which is not accurate and I have an image to proove that:
Keep up the excellent work!
A bit more progress on the shin tools. I haven't weathered the anti security blade because the misting effect I want requires an airbrush that I don't have. But I intend on getting one so I'm saving the weathering for later. The "knife" got a little physical weathering with a sanding paper though. It mostly took it fine, and where I went too far is only small parts not seen when in the shin pocket.
The "paddle" on the anti security blade is made of 5 mm plywood and is a perfect fit. For the size of it I followed WOF's shin tool templates.
I've been a little slow on the updates recently, but I did some more work on the shin tools. I think I'll redo the electric tape on the sonic beam tool.
Sonic beam and anti-security blade have been lightly sanded with a fine grit paper to add some fine scratches and dull down the gloss from the aluminium paint.
nice work on this, very impressive! what helmet are you using?
