    According to George Lucas, movies are never really finished they are abandoned or escape or something I forget the exact quote. According to a TDH Fett costumer, a Fett is never finished it always has room for upgrades and improvements. That's part of where I came up with my screen name, a Fett is a never ending project.

    right...I actually meant is there more stuff he needs to have it in form for, say, 501st approval.

    Projects in gereral are never finished...

    Good call. Yes, Lucas has stated in several interviews he believes movies are never really completed, only abandoned (oh how I have wished he would've abandoned the original trilogy much sooner than he did). It holds true with any complex project coupled with a perfectionist attitude.

    Not sure about what the 501st require, but I am not going for that. I am just trying to get the whole thing as accurate as possible. The thing sticking in my claw right now is the vest and neck seal. I haven't seen a screen accurate one available yet, including what is pictured here and the various other versions in my closet. I am trying to commission them locally.

    Very nice job brother...your project stirs up a question I have had for a while...

    How many hoses are connected to the right Gauntlet?? I thought two or is it three, are they supposed to be the connections that are side by side and and the one straight down from the darts or just two...is yours screen accurate?? Trust me, I am not criticizing, I am asking so I know which is correct. Thanks in advance for any info.


    You have some very nice detail....WOW - Outstanding BF - I only hope mine is as nice...

    If you go by the shots on-screen in ROTJ (I haven't scrutinized the SE for this), it looks pretty much like all three hoses are always there except for the stunt shots.

    is yours screen accurate??
    Nope. I need to add that third hose. It's on my list. Another reason its "almost nearly finished."

    I think we have a mutual admiration society because I find myself looking at the pics of your ROTJ and thinking, how can I make mine more like that?! Love your setup.

    AWESOME I love seeing a Fett completed. Beautiful job. You have accomplished something a lot of people start, but seldom finish.
