    Okay guys, if you've been following my helmet or armour i'm approaching the home stretch and just wanted to share. The only things left on the list are: shin tools, toe spikes, jetpack, gauntlets (all on order or already in trasit) and a jetpack harness and associated hardware (actively looking at the moment). Parts list is as follows:

    Helmet: ASOK (cold cast)
    Armour: Boba Maker
    Vest, Neckseal: Batninja
    Flightsuit, Spats, Pouches: LSFU / Arkady
    Chest lights: Fettronics
    Boots, Gloves: MOW Studios
    Kneedarts, Studs: DarkSide
    Cape, Girth Belt, Braids: Woodsman
    Ammo Belt: BBF
    Rifle: Sidewinder

    NB: the codpiece is riding low because i am yet to affix it directly to the flight suit, i'm thinking snaps or velcro.

    Most recent addition is the Rifle which i think turned out really well. i did make a choice not to weather it too much which i know is not super accurate but it turned out awesomely.


    Thanks for looking, as always, comments of all kinds are appreciated.

    It looks great so far! Don't forget to dirty up the soft parts.

    Suit looks great man! And as Rafal said, definitely weather up the soft parts. Don't stress about it though, it can be very fun. I just finished my suit and spats myself, and it was painless.

    Yeah i've been putting off the weathering but it'll happen before too long, i'm sure. I just got a Fett7 jetpack today and it is awesome. Are there any ROTJ Hero Jetpack tutorials using humbrols floating around? It seems pretty daunting, anything as simple as a colour list would be a great help.

    Thanks Sidewinder, it's mostly down to your awesome casting work! I've been plugging along and only really have the gauntlets left to finish. The jetpack is all done (the blue isn't nearly as vibrant in person) and i'm super happy with how it turned out..

    Jetpack (Fett7)
    Decals (Lucksy31)
    Harness and hardware (Kcr7pr)
    Beacon (Darkside)
    Stabiliser (Mojo-Fett)


    Magnets and a few steel strips make the light switch inside the pack easily accessible.

    The shin-tools are also done and are from found parts (with Mojo's replica brushes).

    I've also recently sourced a mannequin i can use to display the costume on, just need to alter the arms and give it a head.

    Stay tuned...
