ESB Fett. The Only Fett.

    Hey everyone.

    After lurking on the site for a solid six months this past year, and doing a lot of research, I made the decision to take the plunge and start my own ESB build.

    Granted, as I lack the practical skills, equipment, and work space to do my own painting, I've lined up some very talented community members to help me along the way. Tackling paint work is probably something I'd like to attempt to learn on my own in the future once it's feasible.

    I started collecting parts in October, and I am creating this thread to help me document my collection process, and likely more to ask a lot of questions because I am sure I will be doing that.

    I've pretty much settled on my shopping list, and as I have come to realize, when I want to enjoy a hobby, cost within reason is usually not a limiting factor. This is definitely not a budget build.

    Bolded items are parts that I have acquired.

    Thanks for looking!

    Pretty darned close to mine, vendor-wise. I did davethebookie's brass cast Webley and it is pretty cool. It definitely feels right. I have a real Webley without a stock that I am building up now. It is a disease.

    Really good parts there! I wish I could get MOW boots but I wear size 8 boots. :(

    damn dude... you are going all in on this :notworthy: that's a lot of things you have bought, will you paint or fix anything yourself or is everything already done ?

    I haven't purchased everything yet, it's just my overall shopping list. I will be putting the costume together as I acquire everything. I will look at learning painting down the road but won't be doing any painting with this build as of now. I have some items already but the main pieces like armor and helmet and metal pieces have yet to be purchased. I aim to finish paying for my commissions and purchase helmet and armor next.

    Very close to my build list as well. More importantly, you made the most important decision of all correctly. And that is....

    ESB FETT!!!!!

    I had actually messaged davethebookie about getting an EE-3 awhile back when I started but never received any reply. I think I would like a cast Webley down the road at some point though. Maybe not to troop with, but a display piece.

    Figured I would update my thread with the items I already have.

    Woodman canvas cape I picked up from TehEl1te. Cut weathered matching RafalFett's template and darkened with what I might assume to be black paint and water while wet by Jbdubz. It looks great, but I might weather it a bit more.

    15145124155101277373873.jpg

    Shin Tools I picked up from Dent Eastwood. I believe the Survival Blade is a found part, but the Sonic Beam weapon is not. The Anti Security Blade has metal attachments that I believe are Machinecraft Replicas metal parts.

    1514512715150524630096.jpg

    Machinecraft Replicas toe spikes for MoW boots. I, like a lot of people, bought a pair of MoW boots on the current final run from Christian. I know I stated in my thread at the start that I would not be painting, but the boots slipped my mind. I will be painting and weathering my boots once they arrive.

    15145130075521479401814.jpg

    Mouser's alco switches and Machinecraft Gauntlet Darts. These will be going along with a metal Glenross Dental Expander from Shapeways to DVH soon as part of his MoW gauntlet build for me. Combat Baby is also making up an aluminum flamethrower to be sent to him as well.

    1514513285459940952300.jpg

    Fettronics display with RafalFett sequence. My favorite piece so far. I am nowhere close to having a full suit yet, but a simple push of a switch puts a smile on my face. Jon also worked and shipped very quickly.

    15145136571451638089026.jpg

    That's it in hand so far. Fettastic has a MoW jetpack I purchased that I am commissioning him to assemble and paint, along with DVH for MoW gauntlets, and Sidewinder for the EE-3.

    I am very much looking forward to when I am able to get armor and bucket from Wasted Fett. That's my next major splurge before I size up for soft parts and put in for Stormrider gear.

    Looks like you're off to a good start !! Keep in mind, your longest lead time items will probably be your flight suit and flak vest. It usually takes around 3 months to get them.
    She also makes the neck seals attached or unattached and pouches, if you're interested. She is the Best there is at making these pieces !!
     
  13. Great shopping list! Good luck!

    I know that the girth belt should be worn on top of the cod piece, but does the ammo belt only rest on top of it?

    I'm holding back on getting a girth belt until I have my armor so I can measure and account for it, but if I only have to measure my waist for the ammo belt, it would be good to know.

    In my setup, the ammo belt goes over top the top half of the girth belt. That being said, the ammo belt attaches with Velcro and therefore has a range of adjustability and the girth belt doesn't add much thickness. I ordered mine based on my normal waist and had no issue. Also, as for the girth belt, Woodman has been making them long enough so that I gave him my normal waist size and he knew how long of a one to send knowing to add some length for the armor. The straps on the girth belt also allow for a range of adjustability. I know some folks wait till after they had the armor to get the lengths, but I ordered based on my normal waist and had no issues. Maybe I got lucky? Anyhow, something to consider.

    Dental files from 01Hawk. Forgot to post these earlier. They were much smaller than I thought they would be. lol

    Got my wookie braids from Woodman today. Going to pick up some fishing line from Canadian Tire to tie them together.

    I also picked up a custom plate for my EE-3 stand.

    I've been searching for any build items I can pick up in store lately, but I can't seem to find what to use for a translucent cover for the chest display. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    I have some extra I can send to you with your jetpack, free of charge. It's a thin red transparency.
