I speak to wasted fett over instagram quite a lot, hes a top guy! also, im 14 so im not looking for 100% movie accurate however one day i am planning to join the 501sst so im doing more research. thanks so much for your reply
thanks! thats some really good advice!Considering the time it takes to put together a really good Fett always try to buy the best.
On the painted parts I suggest start with the small stuff,like the shin tools, do the research and painting
as you wait for the next parts to come when you can afford them. This will help to find your own working process as parts get larger and more complex.
Your skill level will increase and your pocketbook won't feel so bad over the time things take.
I see people buy everything first and the end result suffers because they felt pressed to finish fast when confronted with all that
you have to do. Result...wast of money...sloppy work.
A good Boba can take a couple of years and the helmet painting alone can take as much time as painting the rest of the entire outfit. Let the time improve
your research and building skills. It's all on TDH.I ended up with four binders on our build and have even added new stuff and
revisions since. Make it fun...not just work. The time is worth it.
Thanks a lot!I'm linking to an older thread, but it lists all the parts and has prices that were correct at the time. New to TDH? Read this about how much you will spend!
ok thanks. ive screenshotted some armour and stuff i found on ebay and posted it in a facebook group im in, they said it was all wrong and fim glad i didnt waste £70 on some trash armourI'll second Wasted Fett. Also check out the Imperial Outpost Armory sale threads in the cargo hold, this is the continuation of RKD armor (which I have). Contrary to what the other poster said, avoid Ebay, Etsy, any other places like that. There are plenty of people out there who sell cheap armor to unsuspecting people new to the costume- whether it be Fett, TK, Darth Vader, etc. It's only later you find out that the armor is inaccurate and cheaply made and needs to be replaced. It's a common story you'll see on TDH every few weeks.
I would suggest keeping your eye on the cargo hold forum, you'll find pretty much everything you need there, from helmets and armor, to girth belts, flight suits, shoes, metal pieces, etc. You'll be hard pressed to find someone on TDH who'll steer you wrong.
