    4 Weeks Ago - Jan 17, 2017, 9:47 AM - Fenn Shysa Inspired #1

    I have a thread for this over on the Mandalorian Mercs forum as well but since I am active here on the Dented Helmet too, I thought that I would share what I have so far. My thought process was that since Fenn Shysa is a Mandalorian Protector, that he should have an armor/kit color scheme that is similar to Boba Fett's. For this reason, I did not paint my kit identical to the comic book version of Fenn with the orange/yellow stripe on his helmet and the blue on the gauntlets as Fett also appears with similar colors but looks different in his OT appearances. This is also why I went away from the green flight suit and opted to go with a 'unique, tan instead of the light grey/blue ones Boba has in the OT. I wanted to make a more realistic/ 'screen accurate' version of Fenn that would blend in better within the true Star Wars universe which is why I chose the path that I have. I am also adding in some details of the Mythos Fett statue with the addition of a brown poncho and a gunslinger type western belt with saber trophies as Fenn generally does not carry a sidearm in the comics and instead uses mostly gauntlet mounted blasters to get the job done. I also made the side mounted rocket pack that Fenn and Tobi wear in certain scenes. Since these pictures were taken I have also dyed the girth belt red and I am currently still working on the jet pack harness system but free time is hard to come by currently.

    If you also want to peruse my entire build process you can check it out here: http://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/in...804#msg1367804

    Here are some pictures of Fenn from the comics that I used as references:

    I like the idea and the overall look of the kit. I think you are doing well so far.

    My only suggestion is more weathering on the soft parts.

    More weathering of the soft parts is certainly in the works! I am currently in the process of making the thigh pouches for the flight suit and wanted to make sure the soft part weathering was even all around once those got added.

    I do not know how many people will see this but quick question. I have an NME props Mercenary helmet and I am looking to potentially upgrade my bucket with a hollow aluminum stalk, servo and lights for the range finder to give my kit that extra needed something.

    Does anyone know if it is possible to remove the outside ear cap that encases the RF stalk and know if the Bobamaker hollow stalks fit? And/or point me in the best direction for said parts?
    As far as I can tell from the forums Fettinator sells the servo and light kits and Terminal Fettler sells the RF toppers and stalks that fit Fettinator's electronics set up?

    I had a mercenary helmet way back in the day when they first started up. I really don't remember exactly how the ear was designed. Post a pic and the forum can probably help you out.

    Good news! I figured it out. I took a small Philips head screw driver and a hammer to it and the ear cap cover popped off super easily. Now to await the arrival of the new goods while finishing up everything else.

    I like your unique take on this character. The colors work particularly well.

    Thanks Nassik! It has been a slow process but fun to work on. I have been updating my gauntlet blasters to better fit the look from the comics and hope to have those finished this weekend.
