    Hello from northern Canada

    Hi guys, new Fett wannabe here. I have been lurking here for a few years off and on, contemplating whether or not I had the time to build a lid and possibly a detailed Boba Fett costume, finally took the leap this October and started a pepakura bucket. The hope is to have a complete outfit for next Halloween.

    I will be asking lots of questions and advice during my project and from what I have seen on here in the past the forum is full of very friendly and most of all knowledgeable builders.

    Here is what I have accomplished to date.




    Some minor modifications but so far I am happy.

    Thanks rewarding yes, but also time consuming, I'm hoping I gave myself enough time with a year lead time to do the costume justice. I am at a point now where I will need to start sourcing out some parts to finish the helmet, mainly I am not happy with the range finder and right ear pod as well as a cast of an MQ-1 circuit board for behind the keyholes.

    Welcome! Great work thus far.

    Whereabouts in Northern Canada? Always good to see another Canuck.

    Thanks davesb, I have started a WiP thread in the costume section. So far I am nearing completion of the armour.
