    Cant wait to get to that phase. Thanks, btw, your WIP/finished thread is what made me decide on the Fettronics light and I love the thing.
    Glad I could help!
    And great update post, btw!! Grats on the boots!
    But that MR gun...a bit of advice, I tried using it during Halloween and while the weight feels great and solid at first, I thought my wrist was going to snap off after one walk around the block! If you plan to troop, I would look to go for a lighter, better for trooping blaster eventually. There's a thread here I read awhile back where basically everyone that has the MR blaster said the exact same thing, but did I listen? Na. And now I'm waiting for my other ROTJ blaster. LOL

    I think out of any of the poses Fett has, that is my favorite one to do. Until I actually took a moment to look at that pic, I never realised exactly how tall of a Fett I actually am. (to give you an idea, that's a cattle gate) amazing what boots and a helmet can do. lol

    Carves, you'll get there, bruv.

    Re: WIP: SE Boba Fett

    Well, finally bucked up the courage to start my weathering today on everything but the flak vest. I used coffee grounds (thanks, Terry) and like the rust/red clay effect it has. Next I'll start the black, which will be done either with flat rattlecan or kiwi boot polish and a brush. Haven't quite decided yet.

    Re: WIP: SE Boba Fett

    I was surprised at how long this really didn't take to do. And how nice and coffee-ey you smelt afterwards. lol.

    Re: WIP: SE Boba Fett

    Sonik....coffee ground effect looks great. Maybe there is a marketing op for Starbuck's. You can have the Bantha skull on the left shoulder armor and the Starbuck's logo on the right. lol.

    Seriously, I'll try that technique when I have the funds to replace my EVO flightsuit. Another thing that looks pretty good when weathering a suit is if you live in a place that has red clay in the soil. You really have to grind it in for it stick after a was, but looks good. Can't wait to see your whole suit complete. Thanks for sharing the incremental progress.

    No prob, bruv. I know we're all WIP pic junkies. lol

    Everywhere I went last night, people kept telling me I smelled like vanilla biscotti coffee. My hands still smell like it. I need to look into that Starbucks sponsorship. Gonna be hard to Barista with my helmet on. LOL

    Hopin the smell of the shoe polish will dumb down the coffee smell. That or I'll smell like a French vanilla half-calf kiwi latte. lmao

    Forgot to mention, Mary decided to help out with the weathering process.... although, maybe a little misguided. lol

    The cat, though cooperative, was wholly unimpressed.

    I always wondered if there was a good use for cats. Now I know.

    Great job there, brother. I don't know if it will actually help to set the stains or not, but I threw my suit in the dryer after each round of weathering.

    By the way, wipe your face. You've got something on your lip!
