    1 Week Ago - Dec 6, 2014, 7:40 PM - MrFett...Meet my new Room mate #1

    Gday all thought id post a thread of my accidentally assembled kit for a mannequin to greet visitors as they enter my apartment... its all out of spares i.e. bought this , wanted that...changed direction, so brought this, then that ...changed direction etc etc, in the end I've gone RoTJ ( i know Chris (FP) we are a dying breed...) I am sure many of you have traveled this path...almost a right of passage.... anyways ol' mate Fett is providing security for free room and board so its a pretty good deal.....he's a lot bigger than me so I'm not game to call him a 'freeloader' at least to his face anyways LOL

    This is a fun (tongue in cheek) post so please don't tear it apart, ill post again my RoTJ Fett when its complete (once i receive girth/ wookie braides from Woody) then you all can hook in prior to sending it in for approval....in the interim however enjoy..

    Mannequin was a cheap plastic/fibreglass regular 'joe' i reconstructed utilising my over payed for surgical skills, so lots of metal/rods/expandable foam/tape (and cursing of course)
    Helmet- ESB-Darth Voorhees
    Vest- Batninja
    Armor- FP (V.4) painted by Dynamic1 (Brilliant craftsman and top fella)
    Gauntlets- Fettpride- painted Sleepalot (he's still looking for gauntlets after i convinced him to part with his....sorry brutha)
    Metal- Gaunt darts/ missile, JP beacon/ stabiliser ,shin tools
    Chest lights- TK

    JP- NME Coldcast (Cheers Marcus!!! painted by myself..... and flippin' worth the wait and then some, as its an incredible piece..difficult to resist temptation to wall mount this beauty in its shiny self- I know Marcus has been belted from all angles to get this right, and i also know he is very aware of his customers- so he will get your order out and man it ll be worth it)

    Ammo Belt- 14 functional leather pouches ( love the real smell) following Rafalfett templates (had a movie prop maker who does the bulk of leather work for many movies shot Down Under- eg. Pirates Of C at the moment, TerraNova and the old and soon to be released Mad Max - real talented bloke who really hooked into the project and learned a tonne about Fett along the way....

    MoW -Girth Belt/Gloves/Boots
    RoTJ SE Wookie Braides - Woodman (tonne of research has gone into these- Im embarrassed how little i knew)
    Cape- Real US Army Half Shelter

    Softparts- local seamstress who does props for local movies filmed down here- all based on templates, used a light cotton twill, as it was only for the mannequin (but has all essential stitching requirements etc)

    Blaster- based on templates, based on .44 magnum diecast cap gun, PVC barrel, 10mm aluminium D handle, t-track, 4x20 scope, wooden butt (cheers Woody)

    And lastly 1 Boofhead standing behind Mr Fett

    Cheers a tonne folks for looking
    Happy Hunting

    Cheers Brian (Dynamic1) your armor is insanely awesome, and really gives it that real finish... in person Ol' mate Fett absolutely startles people as I've placed him looking straight at you upon entering the apartment.... damn funny to watch peoples reaction....Im presently forging metal armour for my RoTJ kit with my FPH2 RoTJ on order from Chris, so this shud all come together next spring.

    - - - Updated - - -

    heres a picture of the RoTJ with your armour , still need the FPH2 RoTJ to complete it (this is with my GMH)
