    Didn’t have a lot of time today for Boba, but I managed to drill the gauntlet darts and put them in temporarily (they’re just taped in place on the inside). Also prepped one of the knees. Fettpride didn’t include the knee darts OR the handy resin block that sit behind the knee and holds the...

    Tonight I did some prep work on the right gauntlet. Using the templates created by RafalFett I was able to mark our some dart locations. Roughly evenly spaced, any thoughts before I drill these out!?! I also used some tiny point files to sand the RF topper so my lights fit better!

    Looking really, really good man! I like the comment about the “ugly helmet” - I think that’s why a lot of people build the SE version cause it’s essentially the ROTJ version with ESB helmet...

    The red in the video looks more subdued than the images. Not sure if that makes any sense at all.... Looks great tho! Topically for the damage on the mandibles and dome? Have you pre-fit the visor already (one image I see it looks like it’s installed)?

    Got ya! I tried to do that with a fine dremel bit, but didn’t want to accidentally shave away anything on the outside. Point file may be the way to go! In my opinion, the lights are fully tucked into the housing (they’re snug and friction fit in there) - how do you know so much about the new...

    Took a break from editing wedding photos tonight to do some prep work on my helmet. Drilled a hole in the lid, and a corresponding hole in the right ear for my servo from Jc27 . Pretty sure things are going to line up very nicely once the helmet is painted. Trying to as much as I can now so I...

    Today was a busy day - not necessarily on Fett. We put together one of those playset/ swing sets that we bought for our daughters - took about 6 hours including a lunch break, not bad! Anyways I was beat, but wanted to do some things I’ve been wanting to do to my lid. I had bought some rare...

    Definitely better, and the orange is not bright in my opinion. Taking some photos outside would help show that! Looking like the repaint was a great decision too!

    Your Woodman cape didn’t come distressed? Mine did, but I ended up weathering it even more with the hammer technique - PITA... Also, bummer about the lid but the back looks good man! I wouldn’t touch it (but that’s just me). Also, I feel like everyone else’s helmet is so much smaller than...

    BH16972 ROTJ conversion (from SE)

    Hey T! Didn’t you say your helmet was painted by AFettFullofDollars ? Wouldn’t that upper cheek color be pretty darn close to accurate or complying with the CRL if he did it? Only wondering cause I’m really starting to consider commissioning the helmet...

    Weathered my cape a bit - rattlecan black, and the browns I used to paint the ammo belt. Happy with how it came out; I tried to get some dirty/ dusting near the bottom and collecting on the seams. tennantlim what is the plastic you’re using to create the small plate on the cape? Or anyone for...

    AMAZING start - especially since your initial videos you were teaching yourself to airbrush! It’s both inspiring and daunting coming from someone that has also never airbrushed before...

    Tonight was one of the FIRST times I’ve ever used my dremel. I bought it, as well as my airbrush setup and other misc Boba tools, when I started this endeavor with an order to Fettpride 3 years ago. You can imagine the bullets I was sweating while taking the Dremel to my gauntlet, and to the...
