  1. Jun 28, 2009, 12:54 PM - my first test fit of my ESB Boba!! #1

    ok people...almost there! Still need to add the fine details but couldnt wait to try it on for the first time. The cod is actully taped to the buttplate lol. For some reason the aluminum shoulder/cod studs i got have screws that are way too long,i need to find shorter ones.the rangefinder isnt on the stalk and the backplate is not on, along with the jet pack, but we get a good idea how this is gonna look, and im stoked! i photoshopped out the background of my disaster of a work space LOL Enjoy test fit number 1!

    thanks guys..yea the weathering doesnt show up well with my camera... ESB doesnt have really heavy weathering on the armor though...the chest logo well...i messed up that piece and had to remove it and re-paint so im waitng on a new one from lucksy...then ill weather it up while on the armor so i can do the vest also..tis too clean heh...the belt pouches arent attched here either Lots of work to do still, but mostly details...i just really wanted to try it on!

    Lookin' sweet !

    I wanted to ask, was your flight suit originally white or grey, and did you use the evening blue to dye it? I'm so paranoid about dyeing mine too dark, yours has a nice color to it.

    That is looking good. You have some top notch parts. My collar screws were too long as well (evolution) I used my dremel and a cut off wheel and cut a little off and they work perfect. Might consider giving that a try.

    Looks good but needs some more "aging" to the armor and coveralls.

    Timmer...thanks! it was from Arklady, and was a ever so slightly blueish light grey. very light..lol. I did indeed use the evening blue RIT dye. Did it in my kitchen sink haha. Worked well i think =)


    CoJake..yup,thats what i did...seems to be good now!

    Lopero... yea the vest wasnt weathered at all there,but it is now =) Also the armor is pretty weathered but it doesnt show up well in the pics. it was bright daylight in the room. Im going for movie accurate weathering and ESB Fett isnt all that dirty on the armor. I am however adding a bit more with some dry brushing techniques

    Cranky...yup painted it myself, and all with rattlecans. =) the base green is rustoleum Spruce green, i couldnt find it anywhere so i ordered it from the first Hardware store i googled online lol. i also misted it VERY lightly with rustoleum hunt club green. Then i used an inexpensive flat black to mist on for weathering. Its technically made by Krylon, but its their cheaper stuff...colortouch. because its not so rich in pigment,it works perfect for weathering =) the shoulders were a bit tricky. I used krylon OSHA yellow for the left bell and just weathered it with the flat black colortouch. the right bell i actully sprayed with testors model masters"gomango" (which is a MOPAR muscle car color=)) first..then i misted it lightly with the OSHA yellow to get the tone you see there..then the flat black misting again. i will be adding a bit more weathering to that with acrylic washes and dry brushing as well. the weathering is way more prominent in person. Im a strong beliver in Less is more when it comes to weathering, at least with the dirty part. I get tons of compliments on my Scout weathering cuz i didnt over do it, which seems to happen alot. i may go a little heavier on my jet pack with the scratches though than the screen used pack just cuz ive seen some look really awesome that way.

    Everyone else...thanks for the compliments....im a little further done now...i may have updated pics this weekend!

    Thanks FettOfficer!

    Ok..This is pretty much done. i wanted to use this for my nieces birthdaytomorrow, as we are having some imperials visit .....so, somethings arent exactly as i want them but will work fine for a 5yr olds birthday

    i need to change the elastic behind the knees to white, im waiting on aluminum kneedarts from Fenix Props and Toe spikes from Russ...i also am waiting on my sidearm holster from FP and need to weather the jumpsuit more on the lower legs. Also want to add Velcro on the jumpsuit for the knees and possibly the cod/butt so they dont slide down. but for the most part, im happy with how this turned out...and id say in very good time...i started the last week in Febuary

    Heres pics from today...i managed to suit up completely by myself...that was a task! LOL..anywhoz...enjoy!
