Hello, all! My name is Ryan.
I've been a member here for awhile, but I haven't posted much, and I don't even check the site much, since everything is soooo tempting. I've been out of this game for so long, but I want to get started again.
In the past, I've modified several of the older Don Post PU helmets (including my prized first run white interior DP). I had most of the set of armor from Richie's Armor (yes, it's been years - is he still around?), I had a seamstress make an armor vest and piece together two Dickies grey jumpsuits to make the undersuit, guantlets by BYOBF and I still have a Wookie Cantina ROTJ armor belt. Plus some great gloves, though I forget where I got them. I know that all of those items pale in comparison to the work being done around here.
I'm interested in getting started again, but I need help. Of course, I want to start with the helmet, but I'm having a hard time figuring out how to go about it. It seems to me that the FP helmet is the best available. Is this true? Seriously, the acronyms are a little confusing, and I was hoping for a 'How to Get Started' thread, but I haven't been able to find one. Any/all help is appreciated.
I am a major Boba Fett fan for the last 25 years or so, and I don't need to be treated with kid gloves, as I'm pretty well-informed about the various incarnations of the suit.
As incentive for help, I'd like to show some of my 1/6 scale Boba Fett photography (I've noticed that RaAlvarez has been using one of my older photos for his avatar lol!):
