    New guy here!

    Hello everyone, I am new to the forum, but plan on spending lots of time here. I have decided to make my own Boba Fett armor and figured this would be a place I will be coming back to as almost all of my Google inquiries returned me here lol.

    I am 24 and I live in Washington State with my wife. My real name is Jake. I have been doing computer case mods for the last few years as well as some blacksmithing and some gun smithing. I am going to be jumping into my ROTJ armor ASAP. I am going to take a stab at the metal armor because its a form for creation I am familiar with and plus I have friends and family who are very good at and well versed in it too.

    That all being said, I cant wait to get started and get to talking to everyone!

    Re: New guy here!

    Thank you everyone for the warm welcome. I had seen a few of the metal ones and I figured that would be easiest for me. As I haven't worked in plastic as much as I have metal, I figured I would try out something I am familiar with. Hopefully I can get it to look just like the ROTJ.
