    My buddy and I used fierfek's Boba Fett pep file, and from there, my friend did a few layers of resin, then a layer of fiberglass. I'm doing all of the bondo work at the moment

    Honestly, pep takes a lot of patience, since it starts as paper. However, you gain a strong connection to the kit as everything goes along, so it's worth it to me
