Here are the updated pics.







I added the flamethrower, touched up some of the paint, etc.
I was very short on some colours of paint, so some parts of the flamethrower don't look too great. I just gotta do a little bit of touch up, get to work on the right gauntlet, get new gloves, finish my boots, get a new vest made, make a new rope bel....you get the point.

Great Job!!!(y)
I'm moving on to this part of my costume soon, and seeing yours makes me look forward to this project. Mine will be ROTJ, though.
Keep up the good work.

:lol: This'll probably be the first thing I get done just because I lack the $$ right now to do anything else.

Unbelievable

I think that you did a great job.

Where is the cardboard chest armor????

Seriously, go all the way, that is very unique and looks great.

I hear that mate. Congrats, BTW. My Wife and I are expecting our second in April which has kinda put the brakes on my Boba outfit due to funds being required elsewhere. I found it impossible to convince my wife that a Jet Pack from MB or RA was vital nursery equipment. Ah well.

Highly impressive Gauntlets there Fett-UK. I was in the process of cobbling together some cardboard/foamboard/plastic/chewing-gum/string & glue gauntlets myself, but gave up. Now I've seen yours, I'm convinced it can be done and have re-started.

Did you make any templates that you could share pictures of with rough measurements? I'm having difficulty getting the various "boxy" shapes on top of the gauntlet to look good.

Any help gratefully received.

Still can't get over those Gauntlets, man, they are truly great even before you know they're card!
