I just noticed that blaster has your helmets old range finder on it.
The whole concept looks very nice. In your first post you said something about not wanting people to think you didn't have the skill to pull off a Boba and I don't think you need to worry about that at all. The ridiculous amount of skill that's going into your weathering, along with all the scratchbuilding, is very impressive. I really like your technique
Thanks everyone!!! It' s really nice to see so many good reactions!!!
Yup, that's the range finder of an old Rubies helmet. It's not the RF that came with this helmet however. It's from a Rubies I cut open to use for Robocop.
good catch!!! In a way it's good you didn' t catch that at first, so that means it's at least incorperated into the gun properly.
Thanks again!!! I wasn' t sure the blaster or the pack would work, but it seems they do... so far anyway... Maybe I' ll screw up big time with the paints :P
Well most of the paint job is on. There's some details you don' t see on the picture. The chest symbol of Boba is on it, aswell as all his jet pack symbols. It still needs a few wash layers and then it's entirly done in terms of paint. I' m thinking of adding Fett's rocket aswell... It looked cool when I put my ROTJ rocket on it.
Also, the blaster needs to be dirtied up a bit, it only has basic colors on it.
WOW!!! That is wicked! I can't wait to see the whole thing on you! This is looking really good. Keep up the good work ner vod
Yes! See, I love seeing custom work like this! Look at that paintjob!
thanks everyone!!! I really appreciate you like where this is going!!!
wow thats wicked awesome!!!!
Your JP look sweet as mate! Great job on the weathering. You really should give Boba a go as you clearly have the skills! Have you been able to work in the cape yet? Really looking forward to that!
Hey Rick, when I first saw your pack at your home it looked impressive, but this..this is amazing! Great work mate!
That is some amazing work!!
Your custom it's looking great... Congrats!!!
So sweet man, thats put even more ideas in my head now ...... real nice work dude.

And been messing around on the poncho:
Waiting for gauntlets now and I have to finish up a few things, including a final jumpsuit.
love the gun in your most recent pic!
Liking that design on the bottom of the poncho! The greaves also are really nice!
You gonna do thigh plates?
No I won' t do thigh plates, as to keep the idea of " boots" rather then an armored plated harnas or uniform.
Dang, missed the update. Looking great Rick! When can I take a look at the suit whith my own eyes??
Its been a while since I have been on here but after looking at your armor vod; it is coming along nicely. Great job!
I love the picture of your custom Mando with Boba... Great Work!!!!
thanks guys!! it's been a while, here's a little update:
picked up some army stuff in a dump in the Czech Republic for about 3 dollars.
I' ve also finished on the custom build holster for the scratch made blaster/revolver.
That is one sweet looking custom; I especially like the weathering and leather work thats on it.
