Thank you very much WOL!! Templates are printed out and my Mando-minded friend and I are soon to start on armor!
Wow this is great ! I'll start the cardboard samples next weekend and if everything works out I'll try this out with aluminum....
Glad you like them. I have maade templates for nearly all of BF gear, knee armor, helmet, blasters Prepro/ESD/ROTJ, ESB flame thrower, as well as gaunlets, to name a few. I also have patterns for some of the soft part. So if there is something you need they're here somewhere. If you are having trouble locating them just drop me a PM and I'll get you hooked up.
Welcome to the Dent!
Great templates! I think I may need to find the rest! Thanks!
ok something is wrong it keep printing in peaces is it sapost to do that?
ok i got them to print but there way too big i'm useing windows paint
having issues with the gauntlet files. they print really really small. what settigns should i use to print them from Adobe Acrobat?
i don't know about the armor ones, but i just printed the rangefinder templates last night. as far as i know, printing will vary from computer to computer and printer to printer.
the RF ones have some scaling information printed right on the pages. you need to adjust your settings until the actual print size matches the scale on the paper.
so if there's a mark that says it should be 1/2 inch, but yours is 1/4, print at 200%. if you have something that says it should be 1" and it prints at 2", then print it at 50%. i think it's a trial and error thing...
hmmm ,posting in decending BH numerical order are we?
anyway, the knees I found on here print large enough to fit godzilla, and i cannot re-scale with this printer. i SWORE there was a proper sized pattern for standard printers. no?
All of the template sets are scaled to print out on standard 8.5 X11 Paper (unless it states it is for A4 size paper). You need to use the "FIT TO PAGE" option in your graphics program or in Acrobate, if it's a PDF file. That should force the templates to print out normal size.
All of the armor templates have a scaling sheet included in each set for fine tuning the printing process. It is 5" X 5".
Let me know how that work out.
I just checked out MS Paint - in order for it to print correctly
1. go into the "Page Setup" window under "File"
2. make sure that "Fit to" (lower right hand corner) is checked and that it say "1 page By 1 Page" that will force it to print out corrrectly.
Or you can play with the % line above but using "Fit to" worked for me every time,
BUT you have to make sure you reset it for every page you want to print otherwise MS Paint will default back to the jumbo size. As you can see MS Paint is a pian to use.
Most likely it say your "Fit to" reads something like "7 pages by 6 Pages" which is 42 pages YOU DON'T want that.
Check it out and see what happens and let me know.
My domain name went defunct on the 4th, so the templates I'm hosting have disappeared for the moment. I'm in the process of finding another host and obtaining a new domain, since my old host cancelled my account *and* has held onto my domain (I've had this happen three other times. Can anybody recommend a good, long-term host? If so, PM me, please). Once I have the new domain and server set up, I'll get with WoF to get the templates re-hosted. I'm sorry for any inconvenience.
These are so nice!!!! You could just cut them out and tape em on they look so good! very nice job.
any templates for the vest? im 6' and have a 45 inch chest
Verry awesome man, I cant wait to get started...Thanks!
Easiest way I found to print them was to open in Windows Picture and Fax Viewer (for XP and Vista), and print at 100% from there (it works for me, as I needed them on UK A4 size). This has pretty much given me the templates in the right size. I downloaded the medium sized ones as I'm 5'8"
PM sent on some smaller templates
I'm going to have to get some smaller templates eventually as well--my daughter said she'd like a costume now too!
Hello there! Is they any one that can help with the shape of the bend in the chest armour. I know it has to fit to your body but I would like to know how its ment to look.
This templates are great! Thanks for adding all the sizes. I've just started my first set of armor thanks to these
Warm up your armor (Sintra, Trash Can, etc) and give it a "convex feel". Don't give your self C cups... But, give it a nice "Hey! Look at these babies! Bench pressing and muscle milk I've been drinking gave me PECS of STEAL!"
yeh! looks sweet! but i need to know what size to use. im 168cm tall. so witch one do i use.
these are really awesome templates, but i have a quick question....
which template would be the best to use if you are a tall girl (6'1") yet have a small frame (measurements 33; 25; 32)???
any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!
First, you'll have to be ready to do a lot of preliminary tiral-and-error and go through a lot of paper. *heh* As it says in the first post, the large templates (last listed before the body diagram), printed at 97.3% of full size will probably fit a 6'1" individual -- depending on your body proportions (leg-to-torso ratio).
Once you find the right length for your body, tweak the aspect ratio to narrow the width until it fits your girth. And remember that it's going to be over a bodysuit and vest, so allow for that bulk.
Print out, cut out, tape together, use a loop of painter's masking tape to stick the pieces to a sweatshirt or some such to check the fit, adjust as needed, repeat...
That should get you started in the right direction. Let me know if you need clarification anywhere in there. Have fun, and good luck.
Jonah-- thank you for your help, i've gotten quite a few ideas from a couple other guys who posted in my intro thread for femm mando armor; some of the girls on here have some KILLER concepts and mandos... which i am starting to think would be my best bet, because i dont want to do anything too boyish :P (even thought i'm a tomboy)...i saw something about "boob armor" and commented in a thread about it, just waiting to hear back from Rotton, as i don't know where to buy it online...
your concepts for tailoring measurements on armor will be of great use to me!!! thanks again!
Glad to help. Also, head over to the Mandalorian Mercs to see more FemmeMando concepts. Hydra (here, too), Pheonix [sic], and Vhe'dn are some of the best that spring to mind.
I'm tackling two custom Femmes also for a couple girlfriends. One's likely to be more Fett-like, the other's more lithe and form-fitting whilst still being well-armoured. That latter I should have in scan-able form within the next day or three, if you want to see more of what other people have come up with...
i think i am possibly going to go with a cobalt blue; grey; mac & cheese color theme...possibly with the jango fett leg armor, not too sure on that though...just tying to find out where i can locate some femm mando chest armor which isnt turning out to be the eastiets of things...but i will check out the mado merc site as well...
Thanks for the small template! Helped me a TON when I had to redo some pieces, just wish you'd of had them up 7yrs ago when I made the first set! Would have been soo much easier.
got any templates in 5, 7?
5, 7??? do you mean 5 feet - 7 inches?
I can work up any size if there is a need.
P.S. 5'-7" templates attached below.

Hi all. I met Jeremy Bulloch yesterday in Norwich and he gave me details for this forum. I would love to build my own Boba Fett suit but have no clue where to start - materials, templates, colours etc. I am about 5'11". Any ideas or advice would be great!
Thanks a million! I am printing these out in the first step towards my son's Halloween costume.
what kind of program are you guys using to print because mine are all turning out weird.
I am working on using these templates for a set of armor for my son. How do you guys suggest affixing armor plates to fabric clothing?

I'm just a little bit confused with the cod piece. In the side armor picture shown below, I'm pretty sure I've labeled them correctly, but what is the space there? In pictures I've seen of the cod piece, that would be filled in because the lower part is fairly high, but what should this be filled in with? I'm just a little confused obviously. Thanks
That Codpiece part should be more like a cup shaped to let room for the 'family jewelry'. It's better to cover that space and not fill in.
Fantastic! I am attempting to set up patterns for the female Mandalorian that was briefly seen on the preview for Clone Wars Season 4. I will add them when they are complete. Or, as complete as they can be without further images!
Is there a PDF version of all the templates (armor, helmet, etc.) for individuals 5'6"? If so can you email me those? the link that gives all GIF's doesn't work for me. Thank you.

All Boba Fett Armor Stencils And Templates. For the helmet go here All Boba Fett Helmet Stencils And Templates. If you want the Jetpack, the Shin Tools or some of the Weapons then go here Jetpack, Blasters, Shin Tools and Buckle Templates and for the soft parts go here All Soft Parts Templates.
I hope these links will help in your build.
every time i try and open the files for the templates theres nothing besides a big red X showing up and i cant open the files with any other program,any ideas on how to fix this or any other sites that offer full armor templates
banhammer in 3... 2... 1...
Wow!! Great templates..Very helpful. Thanks WOF!!!
Somehow I can't open the gif files in the zip file, however I'm able to open the PDF files, but I'm 6´ and the largest in PDF is 5´6", does anyone has the .gif or PDF files for 6´or does anyone knows the scaling factor?? your help will be much appreciated..... I just found my Dremel tool and would love to start cutting SINTRA next week....
Here is the large armor (for 6’ tall individual) template compiled in PDF format:
Boba Fett Armor Large.pdf
I'm glad that I could help you, but the credits goes to Alan.
For those of you who have built from these templates, are there any pictures?
These are just what I needed! I can't thank you enough for making these free to the public. Now, lets see how far along I can get before bed... Lol!
Thank you so much for these! This is going to be my present to myself once I get a bunch of weight off. At least I have plenty of time to practice mold making and whatever material 'bending' I decide to make it out of. Carbon fiber comes to mind As for the templates themselves, should I leave them oriented as they are or rotate them? I tried a couple of the back pieces and they don't seem big enough unless I spin them 90°.
Again, to the OP, THANK YOU!! This is awesom
The templates should fill a standard 8.5"X11" sheet of paper so rotate as needed to fit. If that fails I can send out a PDF of the size you need. Wizardofflight @ comcast.net
Thanks so much for posting this, I couldn't find anything previous to this to fit my size. It's only my 4th day here and it feels great to have so much support from the community. Can't wait to bring Boba to life
Alan, just wanted to add my thanks for making these templates available. They are masterful work.
Maybe someone could help me, i downloaded the printable armor but when i open it up there is not picture....help
I think (if you downloaded the archived file) that your un-ZIP program don't support the extraction of the ZIP files. Search Google for free Zip and you can choose between the first two results, it definitely works (at least for me - although I use TUGZip, another free program).
I couldn't open the medium files, but now I can.
If your having this problem do this:
Uninstall Adobe reader and re-install it then it works.
Adobe - Install Adobe Reader
Thank you now i have somewhere to start..
You are a life saver! These templates helped me out lots! Do you have basic templates for the knee armor?
how did you download the template? i cant find itthe download button anywhere
I'm sitting next to a 5 year old who is very excited about the small templates coming off the printer right now. These are great. Thanks!
How big is the original armor? Im guessing LARGE since it was play by jeremy.
These are great

Please like my Facebook page
Looking at the 5'6", how would I get these onto A4 paper while retaining the armour size and not cropping off?
5% worked great, thank you. You just saved me a tonne of time trying to figure it out for myself.
As with Braveheart93 above me, I'm a bit confused with the codpiece. I'm assuming the cod piece centre plate is the part that descends vertically and the cod piece left, right and centre is the part that folds off at an angle, which leaves a gap to be filled. Do I line that with bondo? I have experience using car filler to remove imperfections and strengthen things but I've never used it as a bridge between two points before.
Looks to be a big improvement. I'll keep an eye on it, thanks.
Thats awesome, was looking for some reference material for my sons Boba Fett costume. This site is great.
