    NEW BOBA FETT ROTJ BUILD

    mjwierzb - For all the wraps I did, it was all thread.....it was tedious work Like for the Blue and Red ones. Figure about 6 feet of thread (each) to get that done. For the attachment of the braid it was more like 12 feet of thread to get it all wrapped up. I was able to locate the thread colors...

    NEW BOBA FETT ROTJ BUILD

    mjwierzb - I used Super Glue to get the braids attached Try it on and measure it first. After that it was just the appearance of a black thread wrap on top of that. (y) Now the 2 knots......a supreme pain in the rear! If your like me, you may take several attempts at trying this, but in the end...

    NEW BOBA FETT ROTJ BUILD

    mjwierzb - Nice. I also have a set of Katarra8's braids! I wanted to get it in line with the 501st's CRL Pic and opt'd to get her ESB Braid set as well - JUST for the Grey Braid, which I ended up cutting and attaching it to the Black Braid going the opposite direction as it is meant to hang down...

    Iron's ROTJ WIP

    **UPDATE** While I sit here and wait for my helmet to dry. I decided to do a pumpkin drawing. I know, I know, it's not a chalk drawing but nonetheless was fun to draw and paint up on a pumpkin. Who here is stoked for this upcoming Friday, the start of the 2nd season of The Mandalorian? As...

    NEW BOBA FETT ROTJ BUILD

    mjwierzb Thanks for them kind words! I'm horrible with sewing so I elected to have a professional do mine. Lasting thing I want is going out in my costume and my jetpack falling off during. (A wee bit embarrassing I imagine - And if the Jetpack breaks.....heartbreaking) Concerning my boots only...

    NEW BOBA FETT ROTJ BUILD

    mjwierzb Not a bad start. (y) Kinda funny but I did the weathering on my boots last night as well. here is the 501st's CRL Stock photo of the ROTJ Hero Variant.... the 501st CRL photo shows some light rusting around the spikes and for that I used a rusting paint kit from Vallejo. other...

    Iron's ROTJ WIP

    ....Also received my soft parts back from my Alterations Girl. Once again she did an awesome job. Here's a rundown of what she did. 1) Attached the Full Metal Fett Hooks to the White Straps for my MoW Studios Jetpack Harness. 2) Also got Holes cut into my Arkady Vest to run the White Jetpack...

    Iron's ROTJ WIP

    Thanks for the generous word fellas! :) ...and quick update on my Helmet. I got around to boring out the hole for the QuestDesignCanada Borden Connector. I used a drill bit and then finished it off with the Dremel tool. I do NOT wanna run the risk of cracking this fiber glass. Looks like it'll...

    NEW BOBA FETT ROTJ BUILD

    mjwierzb Nice! And Welcome! I know yours is an ROTJ SE variant, I'm wrapping up a ROTJ Hero build myself - I'll be working on the helmet this week. I see you got yourself a Rubies EE-3! I picked one up earlier this year to practice painting on. I've got an older '95 Don Post that'll pair and...

    For Sale 7CS ROTJ “damaged” Jetpack commission

    Ah.....I now see where you say "It would be similar to this". My apologies. Your ROTJ pack looks great too! Funny thing is the background setting for the Han damaged pack and your ROTJ pack is almost identical. :lol:

    Boba Fett RotJ WIP

    Strider An excellent looking kit! I just finished mine yesterday and pics of it are on my WIP thread. The pack I thought would only take a couple weeks to build, prep and paint. But nope it took me one months time to get it completed. And having done so......well God speed sir. A rewarding...

    Boba Fett ESB

    I agree with SUTT4869 - this is a marathon. My ROTJ marathon took me about a year to get put together I have an extensive parts list on my WIP. I feel like I was more aggressive in speed too, you can do it quicker if your comfortable with paying expedite fees (if vendors offer that) but I’ve...

    Iron's ROTJ WIP

    **Jetpack Update - Picture Heavy** Here it is....My Jetpack build. I just want to re-iterate that I'm not looking for 501st approval and I'm sure that in many eye's probably not 100% accurate. But after a month of assembling, accidentally breaking - repairing and all the taping, bagging and...
