Hey everyone, I wanted to introduce myself to the forums, and say that I am completely blown away by all these projects and the level of detail you apply.
I have been a Star Wars fan since the movies were re-released in the 90s. Since I'm 19 ( Almost 20 ), I never had the chance to see the original releases. My dad took me to see "A New Hope" when I was little and I was hooked! He wasn't that big of a Star Wars fan at all, he just wanted me to see a movie I "may" like. AND I DID! I made him take me to see "The Empire Strikes Back" (My personal Favorite) and then "Return of the Jedi". Of course Boba Fett became my favorite character.
Well, when I got a bit older I wanted a Boba Helmet. I looked all over the web to buy one, and came close a few times. Yet, the options then were limited and I wasn't satisfied with any of them. So my plans were put on hold.
Recently I stumbled upon a page about how to make a Boba helmet which led me here and I am going crazy and can't wait to make it!
I havn't started yet, but am working on getting materials for the project and plan to keep the forums posted. Also I have an itch to create a personal character I developed while Roleplaying on another site. Here is a picture:
Please comment on my idea for Kaxan Mandus ( Character's name )!
Anyways, I hope to get started on my Boba soon, and I may even turn him into a lifesize model... if I'm lucky!
BTW: As soon as the forums let me I will post some schematics of the armor and helm for Kaxan that I have been working on in the appropriate section.
