Hey, I joined up not too long ago and have been browsing around but haven't really posted yet. Just wanted to say hi.
I've been a member of the 501st for a while now, part of (and VERY active in) the Northeast Remnant. I started with a TK, and last year completed both a TB and Shadow Scout. The Shadow Scout was my first real "scratch build". I had rough trimmed armor, but everything else was basically made myself (well, except the helmet and cummberbund - but I did modify it alot).
Recently my Garrison buddies and I pulled a bunch of Snowie armor, and I'm working on that as we speak. I'm doing both a regular TS and one in black (which I saw on the Special Ops board, he called it an "Ashtrooper" and it really looks sweet).
I happend across a beat up rubies Boba Fett helmet one day and scored it for like $25 I think, it was basically for my 3 yr old son to play with. I always wanted to do a Fett or Mandolorian, but with all my other projects and lack of funds (yes, I know how expensive a quality one can be ) it really wasn't on the top of my list. But after getting that beat up bucket and putting it on, I SERIOUSLY got the bug!!
I plan on starting a slow accumulation of parts and I'm actually leaning towards a custom Mando. I'm on a TON of boards, and I'm sure I'll see some familiar faces here as well. I'll do my best to navigate and not be a pain, thanks again for having me!
