I figure it's about time to start one of these. This is going to be a slow build but I'm ok with that. I'll be building this kit with Level 2 certification in mind.

At this moment, unless some prepainted armor and gauntlets come up for sale, I believe I will be attempting to paint my own helmet, armor, and gauntlets.

So, The Parts List):
Helmet - ToEleven (Painted by MinuteFett)
Armor - BobaMaker (Painted by BobaMaker)
Jetpack - DVH Jetpack (Painted by DVH)
---------- MachineCraft Replicas Stabilizer, Beacon, Collar, Thruster Greeblies & Discs
---------- Full Metal Fett's Hooks & Clips
---------- 01Hawk's Dental Files
Jetpack Harness - On the wait list for Bigdane's next run
Gauntlets - BobaMaker (Painted by BobaMaker)
Cape - MoW Wool
Wookiee Braids - Woodman
Flak Vest, Neck Seal, Flight Suit, & Pouches - Arkady
Girth Belt - MoW
Ammo Belt - Delta13
Gloves - Mike M.
Sidearm - Portumac Studios
Holster - ???
EE-3 - Stormrider Signature Kit
Shin Tools - Paterson Squeegee & Chemical Mixer
Boots - Imperial Boots
Toe Spikes - MachineCraft Replicas

Other Accessories:

Gauntlet Metal Bits - MachineCraft Replicas

Yesterday the first item arrived, my Mike M. gloves. These are extremely nice and arrived very quickly!

Things are slowly trickling in, earlier in the week I got a squeegee and mixer to make the shin tools and yesterday my MoW cape and girth belt arrived.

Found parts are the best parts!
Indeed! I won't be able to have them everywhere, but the goal is to have them where I can. I can always upgrade later too.

-----------------------

My ToEleven helmet arrived today. This is a very nice helmet!
Time to really start reading painting tutorials...

And of course I had to try it on.

Very nice. Hit up WastedFett for Armor and Gauntlets. Imperial Boots has their run open now.
Oops, needed to update the parts list. Got a "used" set of prepainted BobaMaker armor coming soon and I placed my IB order when they opened this current wave. :) So the last major parts are the gauntlets (which I have a couple leads on) and the sidearm/holster. I'm actually printing the sidearm right now though, so I'll be assembling and finishing that at some point too.

Awesome.

So dealing with MinuteFett on the helmet paintwork was a great experience, lots of communication and progress pictures, and the helmet turned out awesome! I got the helmet, armor, and also gauntlets from him last week (along with my boots from IB) but I was prepping to leave for MegaCon in FL so I didn't really get to look at it before I left.

Anyway, here's everything laid out::

And I was really itching to try a bit of it on, so I did:

I've got to finish my wife's Legacy TK, which is near completion, and then I'll be focusing on this build 100%.
