    Jan 25, 2011, 8:59 PM - Markus Fett is TI-7789! #1

    Hi TDHers!
    Some of you may already know me from the goings-on here on The Dented Helmet, where I've been plugging away for quite some time on the seemingly never-ending task of putting together an ESB Boba Fett, but it's official, today my Tie Fighter uniform was 501st approved. I'm now TI-7789! I'm still really looking forward to finishing my Boba (along with a bunch of other SW costumes that are in various stages of [in]completion), but the Tie is now officially my first 501st, and you never forget your first!
    Cheers,
    Mark.

    Thanks thrax! Take a peek:

    By the way, I realise that my driveway background doesn't exactly conjure up thoughts of Star Wars environments. It was the first sunny day here in a week, but it was still only about 14F/-10C, so I didn't really feel like venturing too far from my warm livingroom. :-)

    Congrats Mark and welcome to the Canadian Garrison. I'm finishing up an ESB Boba myself. I'm hoping to have it ready for Toronto Comic Con in a few weeks.

    Sweet! Looks like I'm behind the pack...If you're coming in your Fett, and Rangefinder is wearing his Fett, I'm gonna feel left out... It'll probably be a few months at least until mine is good to go - I've got a fair bit of construction and painting to do. I'd love to see you sport the Rebel pilot though - lots of picture possibilities with my Tie!
