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.

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.
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.
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?
