    Accepted to the 501st! ESB Fett

    I applied to the 501st last night and was accepted on the first try (within 12 hours)!

    BH-5441 reporting for duty. Proud to join the ranks and even prouder that I was accepted as Boba Fett for my first costume.

    Here's some pics of the finished product. I have lots of progress pics but they're on my laptop which blew up 3 weeks ago... when I get it fixed I'll post some of those pics as well.

    Just want to send a heartfelt thanks to all the great members who directly and indirectly helped and offered guidance and support over the course of this ten month project. (and its not completely finished as far as far as I'm concerned... already eyeballing a couple upgrades, hehe). Couldn't have done it without the help of everyone and this site!

    I'm not gonna list everybody I need to thank but I do want to /tiphat to Fettdad... your awesome bro, always around to answer question when I needed a little help! Thank you.

    At some point I'll list all the parts/makers but for the most part its all top of the line. Can't wait for my first troop in it this week at CV. Looking forward to meeting some fellow TDHers that are gonna be there!

    Thanks again to everyone... this is such an awesome feeling
