Boba87Fett's ESB Boba Fett Build (WIP)


Hi everyone,

I figured it was time for me to start keeping track of my ESB Boba Fett build in a thread. Hopefully this helps me hit my May 2020 deadline for a 501st Level II "Infamous" submission!

I will add photos and continue to update as I can. With the two kiddos under 6, I don't have a ton of time right now. However, I am steadily acquiring what I will need!

Thanks for looking!

This past couple weeks I have been working on my WastedFett boots. Received them white and started painting them using my acrylic Tamiya and Model Masters paints.

I still need to make some adjustments, paint the piping on the left boot, remove the paint from the soles, connect the toe spikes and weather them.

I’m currently looking into half round rivets, but I may find some screws that look close enough and then fill in the tops and make them look like rivets. Thoughts?



Attached my toe spikes today. Still need to finishing painting the piping on one boot and then add weathering to the boots and spikes. I opted for 1 1/4” metal trim nails with E6000. I pre-drilled the holes with screws of the same size first. I may have to switch to screws later, but wanted to look more accurate to ESB if I can.



Not perfect, but I think that I am happy for now! Especially for my first time doing something like this.

I used some acrylic wash applied with a paper towel and then used a paper pencil to apply some prismacolor nupastel brownish red. Next I rubbed some sand paper across it to scuff it up a bit.



I’ve been working on my EE3. Still have more to assemble, weather and to mount the Heiland, but here’s where I’m at now...



Well. I learned how to use a sowing machine tonight In order to start working on my ESB cape. Never did anything like that before. Not perfect, but I’m happy with it, especially since it was involving several “firsts” for me.

Will use RIT dye to dye the base color on Thursday and then let it dry and add the stripe.

Hoping to get to weather it and have it done by next weekend.



Made my first attempt at dying the cape today. Initially I just used RIT tan, but I decided to redo it and add sand stone to get it more towards a gold color than a pink brown color.

I like the cape that’s hanging on the left side, but it’s not the closest to the Pantone from the CRL.

It does look more similar to bcurtis’ cape now. Thoughts? Tips?
