    So the jachtgroen from Gamma was not the right one I figured out, so hop back to the store, exchanging it for another, which also was not the right one, but the store next to it had (brand is also Sencys), it dries longer, but layers are thicker and stronger. After removing the masking and some weathering, adding the decal and dullcoat final result is this.

    Paintpalette for helmet almost finished, caboose for mandibles is not there.
    On to attaching armor and placing the chest display

    20140817-20-55-10-cristallo-pngfound the 14 mm out 8 mm in air pressure hoses.
    My paint collection for the helmet so far, to be added some more rattlecans.
    20140817_111123-jpg
    and the final result of my first paintup after 2 weeks. I know there can be made some improvements on details, but so far I am quite happy how it all turned out. Colors maybe a bit bright cause of the Phone and sun here. Comments and tips are welcome (also to improve my painting techniques for the JP.
    20140827_183013_1-jpg20140827_183217-jpg20140828_133821-jpg Inside also done, ready to put on now.
    Next gauntlets and jetpack.

    hi all again,

    major progress made. Now just some details and the Jetpack is to be done..

    Buttons for the gauntlets ordered@Conrad as well as the red LED.
    75 cm of pianohinge @ Gamma
    again paint, first primer, then silver, masking, matt black followed by crimson red. some weathering with misted black and all the other razor sanding in between all and finalle the matt coat from Humbrol.
    finishing the pianohinges and placing the nozzles, darts and magnets for the bottom part of the flamethrower (to put in tech later on).
    The hoses I did not need as much as I thought (of the 4 meter I bought) needed about 2m.
    the one on top I will still have to give a little bit of sandy misting, like in ref. pics.

    A couple of pics now:
    20141012_165743-jpg20141012_170054-jpg20141012_170152-jpg20141012_170218-jpg20141012_170435-jpg

    Honestly I thought the helmet would be the toughest, but these things are at least as tough because of the construction/size does matter here. I want a perfect fit for trooping.

    I started on the jet pack now... with a 3D rocket from toolguy301.

    Some more work done... but first I had to test if everything works walking around.Harness made with Toolguy's 3D printed set and a separate aluminum bar bought at the local hardwarestore, and straps scrounged from leftovers... It fits really well and comfortable and does not weigh much.
    20141102_141555-jpg
    After I wore the kit the first day, in a lot of light it showed that I need to weather the suit, spats and pouches a lot more...so here go the spats.
    20141102_163409-jpg
    But wearing the costume puts a big smile on the face, even though you dont see it.
    At FACTS in Belgium was the first time with 3 hours suited up. The JP still is in progress but I could not wait as my lady was with me.
    Did you know Boba had a love going with Mara Jade (could be in the new canon)?
    20141018-dscn2688-jpg

    I got the thrusters and rocket from Toolguy as well, they are sturdy and the rocket fits perfectly into the JP. Before paint:

    Looking really good man! Making some headway now....you'll be done in no time. Well, not done, but wearable.
    One thing that stood out though was the upper cheek color. Looks black in the pic. Should be green with some blue to it. Nice looking though anyway!

    Hi. Its tamiya xf-17, which is used more often here a darkish green/blue hue. If I hold it next to ref. Pics dont see a difference. Pic is inside with flash so color stand out harder than they are.. thanks for the comment. I love to work on it.

    The Original color was waaaay to light. So with leather dye I revisited the belt and here's 2.0. Also weathered the pouches with greay/black smear and grey and sandy colors.
    20141226_102622-jpg

    On to sanding the jetpack today and do some more weathering here and there... Too bad it's to cold to paint now. brrrr

    Final update before suiting up (I think). Jetpack is scratchbuilt with some parts from Toolguy301. The templates of Rafalfett used as a base, resized and printed on A3 (got the PDFs still).
    Wood, cardboard, glue, bondo, pvc pipes of 2 sizes, and lots of sandpaper to be used.

    20150111_134832-jpg
    Paints in order: primer, silver, white, yellow/squash, WWI blue and red, then small details.

    Before (left) and after the coat (right).
    before Humbrol's matt varnish 20150201_160717-jpgAfter 20150201_165253-jpg
    Testfit. do need to adjust the harness a little bit to keep it from sagging my throat.

    20150204_140055-jpg
    My solution for attaching the thrusters: magnets. Easy to mount and take off, no harm done when they come off (and they stick extremely well).
    Thanks for all your build threads, they helped out a lot. Building this took months
    Please tell me what you think.

    Are you supposed to use clamps on the two side hoses for the right gauntlet?

    Hi. No and on some shots and tours the top hose is taped to the gaunt with black but I am not sure if that is rotj SE or Rotj. Hoses also ended up shorter finally. They were sticking out too much

    So after first series of pics of a week ago, some small changes were made, suit even dirtier, shoulder bells a little higher on same heigt as chest armour. Lightend up the ammobelt a little bit again and positioned that, the girthbelt and the codpiece a bit higher around the waist, and the helmet a bit closer to my torso, and after the 2nd series of pics got the happy email of the 501st approval. BH 23474 is my TKID.
    Of course I will keep it current and update it with some things.
    metal toe spikes instead of 3D printed ones, figure out some improvement on thruster attachment, voice amp and other small things, lights etc.
