WIP for Hannah's RotJ Fett build

Hello all!
With the help of an amazing group of Mandos, I will be completing my late father's Fett build sooner than I had every imagined and donning it in his honor. It is a very emotional build for all of us and I am grateful for this opportunity. Progress, photos, to-do lists, and other information regarding this build will be updated in here by me and the rest of the group who volunteered their time and skills to make this happen. Looking forward to being a part of this amazing community and sharing this progress in honor of Rat Fett.

-Cheers
Hannah

Hello TDH and MMCC Family :)

I heard about Hannah and how her father passed away locally and I knew that all of us if given the chance would help and assist this young lady given the fact that her Dad was our Brother in this SW community. Hearing more about Hannah's dream from her uncle, I remember shouting out without hesitation that WE, i.e. TDH / MMCC members would help to complete Rat Fett's build so that Hannah could honor him by putting the kit on herself. Being able to help Hannah and giving back to our community like this is and honor for me personally and I'm hoping that members here can also find it in their hearts to help and assist where they can. Hannah and I are located in the SF Bay area and I have assembled a team locally comprised of both TDH / MMCC members. Our build team for the project met with Hannah and her amazing family a few Saturdays back and we learned more about Monty and what a great guy he was. I’m confident that Brother Monty is the best friend that I never got a chance to meet. those that did know him were lucky to have him in their lives and they love and miss him deeply.

At our first meeting we inventoried everything Monty collected from 2008 – 2010 and luckily for us he had about 75% of everything we needed. Like most of us Monty collected everything he saw and could afford from the TDH cargo hold so we have a lot to work with. Monty was also about 5’10/5’11 with a medium build so even though Hannah is on the smaller side, the plates can still be made to work…

I’ll be updating both WIPs here and on the MMCC page to keep everyone updated on how this build is going and what all is still needed and where we would love and appreciate assistance. I’ll be calling on builders, painters and vendors for your help and assistance. A local team member (Kevin) reached out and NME has already agreed to supply us with a helmet for this project and we are over the moon that they would help us like that. Rob and everyone at NME have a special place in our hearts and we can’t thank them enough.

Ok I’ll be adding a detailed list of what we have, what’s still needed and where we could use your talents and services. This is a community build / project and understand that we would do the same for anyone of you. There are also parts collected that won’t work on this build like the shoe size, so we will also have items for sale or trade soon.

Thank you!! Syper is truly an incredible person for helping me make this happen. I appreciate everyone's positive feedback with this build as it is very emotional for me. I can't wait to honor my Pops.
Let me know if you need soft parts to fit her, I'll donate!
Thank you so much!
If painting service is needed for the ROTJ helmet, I can offer to do that!
Thank you! We might take your offer on this! I believe we just got the helmet in too. :)

Just a heads up, Its been a slow, cold, busy last few months with the holidays and all but we are right back at it. the Armor, Jetpack and Gauntlets are all off to paint (thanks Tim, Walter and Darren) and we only need the boots and hip pouches so we have just about everything we need.

Our local MMCC clan helped secure a new NME Mercenary helmet and we are still in need of a painter for this helmet ;)
I'll start posting more pics as parts come in / back from paint...

Thanks again everyone for being an awesome community of fellow Boba Fett fans
