    Hi all

    Just thought i'd share somerthing i've been working on. I bought a Rubies Supreme Boba Fett costume a while ago (don't worry i didn't pay much for it as i knew it was terrible), 99% of it i've parted out and sold on ebay, but i have kept the helmet and jet pack (i'm planning on modifying this too). Whilst not 100% accurate, the helmet is actually pretty good size wise. I've added a new RF stalk, tinted the visor and given it a completely new paint job. I'm really pleased with how it's turn out compared to how terrible it looked originally. Let me know what you think! (oh, i know the little graphic isn't added to the right ear piece yet, that's the last bit i need to do)

    pic of the original (not my pic, but it was like this:

    thanks guys, just need to sort out the jetpack next.... got pretty much everything else done for the costume now, everything else other than the helmet and jetpack though is good quality, fibreglass armour and gauntlets, caboots, machined toe spikes and knee darts etc.i'm planning on just having him stood next to my han in carbonite, not for trooping in so whilst i'm trying to make it as accurate as possible, it doesn't have to be 100% (i realise the helmet and jetpack will be the costumes downfall in terms of accuracy - i may end up upgrading at some point though). I do have a dp deluxe recast helmet though, although not sure if that's up to standard either as it seems a bit undersized.

    That Rubies paint job is spectacularly horrid. Nice job. It looks much much better.

    That cannot be the original Rubies paint job? Shame on them if so. You turned a turd into a jewel.

    haha thanks. Yes that was the shocking original paint job. The whole supreme costume is terrible which is a shame since their vader costume was pretty decent

    Beautiful job man, my next helmet is going to be an adapted rubies, what did you use as a paint guide ? N what colours ?
    you should write a tutorial about it, loads of newbies like me would definitely benefit from an awesome guide
