    Delayed introduction...

    Hey all, I'm Chuck from Ontario Canada, and I'm working on my first Boba Fett build. I've been a Star Wars fan since I first saw a new hope back in 1978. I've purchased some armour from ebay, and just received my soft goods from TDH member Arkady (amazing work btw). I'm in awe of some of the work I've seen on this site, and I'm hopefull I can put something together that looks near as good. I'm hoping to have the first version of my costume for this Halloween, and to keep improving it from then on. Right now I'm working on getting magnets to attach the armour to the flight suit, but the magnets i've found so far are button size and dont seem to be strong enough.

    Hello and welcome ... do a search for something in the 25mm(1in) size range with a 6-10 lb pull for the magnets( RKD suggested that pull range .. or something close to that http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f20/c...-method-48099/ ) you should be able to find a suitable magnet on E-bay for a reasonable price..

    I have been working on my suit for just over a year now, and i have about 2-4 months before i will be where i want to be( not done it will never be done) so don't get discouraged if it takes longer than you expect . Glad to have another fettnatic on board .. good luck
