    Mar 21, 2003, 9:29 AM - My costume progress UPDATE3 13.11.03 added JETPACK #1

    UPDATE 4 13.11.03
    Finally i managed to get the Jet Pack finished..Well some work is still needed. I need to dirty the rocket thrusters a bit more etc.. The GA looks good, but it is too small and not very accurate in places. It was a pain to build too.
    i should have bought the MLC pack, but still i'm pretty happy with the result

    + Lord of the Props sent me the new neckseal (Wow!), gloves and Belt!!:

    Knees and boots left!

    What do you guys think?

    UPDATE 3 25.10.03

    Trying on the suit once in a while really helps! First of all the practical aspects like getting the suit on unfolds. I found it quite hard. Especially the collar aromor wich are held in place by the collar bolts(i had to screw the parts together). So i believe 2 persons are recommended to put the suits on. The wookie scalps kept sliding down my arm, so i will add a safety pin to hold them up. The jumpsuit kept coming between the gauntlet shells while tying to lock the together. I also discovered that i will have to fix the placement of the armor parts, add snaps to the shoulder bells and back armor/collar armor.

    This was my first time trying it on and i loved it!! It felt great and was quite comfortably. I love the bubblehead look It looked quite like that picture from ESB when Boba walks in the halls of cloudcity!

    And finally one with Shackman's lights lit:

    I'm awaiting the boots, new belt, gloves + i need some knees to finish it off.
    Besides from that it's really just the left gauntlet left to finish off, attaching the hose and paint the Jet Pack!
    Crits and comments are welcome!
    UPDATE 2 26.09.03

    *Finished my MSH(still need to finish the RF)
    *Assembled my Jet pack(needs to be painted)
    *Got my Chest lights.
    *Painted the collar
    *New backplate(needs to be painted)
    *Got the butt-plate and attached it to the cod piece(needs to be painted)
    *Got my spats
    *Got my Gauntlets-still needs to be assembled and painted.
    *Got the wookie scalps

    Shackman's Chest-lights:

    The gauntlets are beautifully made in fiberglass and the details are cast in resin. These are the most authentic Gauntlets I've ever seen! The details and crispness of the details are amazing! Cant wait to start working on them. FP is your man when it comes to Gauntlets! Thanks again

    Here is the Jet pack-Finally assembled. It was pretty hard assembling this. Tons of sanding and Bondo needed. Minor things to do before painting:

    Some test shots with some of the new items on:

    Stuff i need to finish:

    -Paint the Cod armor(DONE)
    -Paint the buttplate(DONE)
    -Move the shinpockets further down
    -Add the aluminum collar parts(DONE)
    -Finish the RF(DONE)
    -Assemble and paint the Gauntlets(DONE)
    -Paint the Jet Pack(DONE)
    -Get hose-connectors and flamethrower nozzles for gauntlets

    Will post more updates soon

    The mannequinn with the old repainted DP96:

    I quickly dressed up the mannequin with the suit to take some pictures so the armor pieces are taped on at the moment.

    The ROTJ cape looks great(thanks wellpaidkiller)!

    This is far the most fun project that I've been working on
    Let me know what you think. Crits are more than welcome.

    Looks really nice, Micke.

    You'll need to weather that jumpsuit, though. Just ask JMP!

    I'm really impressed. Looks very good.

    When I first saw the pics, and before I read below them, my first reaction was "DUDE! What happened to your hands, man?!".

    Nice work! I'm lovin' your jumpsuit! That is a great ROTJ color. The only thing I could say so far ( other than those shin pockets) is your collar needs some trimming. It doesn't have a straight edge next to the chest, but comes to a point at the center. Just mark your center point, and trim up either side toward your sholders.

    Thanks a bunch, guys
    The mannequinn was bought from a comercial company for a very cheap buck. I shared the same offices as them 5 years ago and i remember that they had a mannequinn in a room wich were used
    in a comercial of some sort(it had a german nazi suit on when i bought it!) Sadly the hands are lacking:/ It's really
    tempting to steal a pair whenever i'm in a store, he he..
    Anybody knows where i can buy hands?

    I agree that the collar armor will need some trimming, thanks
    for pointing it out

    The Jumpsuit was made by a Girl that i know..We did a trade.
    I learned her 3d studio max(she's gonna study industrial design) and she made me a jumpsuit I'm very happy with the result. The colour is pretty damn close i think. The fabric is very good too.She closely followed the references i gave her. Yeah, it will have to be weathered.

    Yeah, i was actually amazed how much work that remained after i wrote the list. I havent even buildt and assembled the JP or Gauntlets yet:/

    That is an awesome costume so far micke
    we need to get a mannequinn but then again our armor wouldn't sit on it very well without a jumpsuit or vest .
    Keep up the great work.

    Just eyeballing it but I don't think you left enough room for the knee armor.

    Vashdstampede:I had a couple of GA gauntlets that i started to assemble, but i traded those for a C3PO head. I expect the new ones anytime soon

    Mattster27: Thanks, man

    BountyHunter185: Yeah, mannequins are great! I might have a spare vest if you're interested. PM me Thanks

    Rogue Studios: Yes, i will have to move down the shin pockets. They are sitting way to high at the moment.

    Halo_1: Doh! Forgot about the LED's! Thanks
    Mr. Fett: Thanks
    tteF aboB: Thanks alot

    TK-Fett/slowmo: Yeah, i asked her about that, but sadly she said that she wouldn't have the time for it because of her studies. But who knows..Maybe in the future I'll let you all know if something happens.

    Well paid killer:
    The cape worked out wonderfully! Thanks again!

    Thanks again for all your nice comments
