Title: Jaster Fett (formerly Rai'ak), becoming Mandalorian Protector **APPROVED**
Post by: Jaster Fett on Nov 19, 2018, 02:25 AM
Oya ner vode!

I'm Jaster. I've been an official member for 2 years now. When I first joined, I sported a gold and red (McMando lol) armor that I was, and still am, very proud of.

Recently, circumstances in my life have taken me down a road I do not want to be. Namely, divorce. I look at my armor now and see a man who no longer exists.

Today, I see something new. I see a fresh start, and with that, a fresh coat of paint. I've been working on a Boba Fett the last several months and wanted to incorporate those pieces in my new kit. I showed my initial concepts to my Alor'ad and he suggested I join you; The Protectors Brigade!

That said, Jaster Rai'ak has been put to rest. Standing before you is a new, hungry, Mando'ade: Jaster Fett.

I took the liberty of tweaking my design to be more CRL compliant. The first is my most compliant. The second one is something I wanted to ask on regarding the green for the armor. I was wondering if I could make it a blue green? If not, that's fine.

I'm still in the planning stage so ideas and advice are certainly welcome!

G'day vod, I like the second pic, like the bluish colour. Don't know about what's allowed or not...can't see why not, but I like it
Keen to see your progress

So sorry to hear about your struggles, vod. 

The same sort of circumstance led me to the MMCC, and changed my life so bigger and better things are on the horizon for you!

Really like your concept.  I would accept both colors with maybe a tiny bit more green in your bottom concept. 

I would encourage you to look around at some other protectors, pre-productions Bobas, and some of the earlier marvel comics about Mandalorians to see if you can get some inspiration from those that speaks to you.  That way, you can put your own special spin on this kit and be less Boba.  :)

Thanks for the feedback!
There are some variations of reds and greens I want to use as well as maybe do something with the girth belt color. I'm still locking down a basic color scheme. I also have some trophies on my old kit I'd like to use as well, just got to pick which ones.

Here's a third design I came up with real fast. I'm thinking of using red oxide for my visor frame/secondary color and knees. The shoulders are going to be a burnt orange and the gauntlets a yellow color (most likely a softer, dirtier, less vibrant yellow. I'm still playing around)

Green has been challenging. I have this soft, forest green paint I liked on my first Boba plates I'd like to incorporate but it still feel a bit too derived. I'd prefer not to use an airbrush as I have such horrible luck with maintaining them but I want my green to be unique. I tried going for the more citrusy one that you see in the old Marvel comics, but I'm not going to lie; NOT a fan of the bright colors.

The CRL says medium green but it would be nice to know how that term fits by way of shading (because I feel like hunter green could be too dark and lime green too light)

But I do know I want to add traces of blue into the green to help standout and to represent my clan (as our colors are blue and green)

I would welcome thoughts and advice

I'm in no way the definitive voice on this, but I did write the Mandalorian Protector BRL's when I was the Canon/Legends Marshal and therefore should be able to help guide you a bit.  The primary color should be of a medium green close to either of Boba's greens. He has a darker forest green for his torso plates and a lighter green on the dome and cheeks of his helmet.  The brighter green we see in the comics should still be allowed but should be muted with a blackwash and brownwash to make it more realistic (unless, of course, you're going for the straight-off-the-page comic look).  If you want to utilize blue, I'd highly suggest you use it as a tertiary color (light blue is allowed) and utilize it for your kill stripes and maybe your gauntlets (one or both). You could definitely incorporate the blue into your jetpack.

Also, love that my Facebook suggestion took root and that you're pursuing the Protector route!  We can never have too many! :D

I have settled on the basic color scheme for my Protector. This was much harder than I thought it was going to be since there were a lot of ideas I had that I had to scrap because they were not BRL compliant.

I'll get a list of things going here soon. The flight suit, boots, and girth belt aren't a problem since I already have those but everything else will have to be built or bought and since I'm also working on a Boba Fett kit, updates may be scarce

So, I have an update sooner than expected! I had a spare set of gauntlets I was going to use for Boba but screwed up on the hinge placement so I used them for my custom Mando. Today, they get repurposed! I applied a base metallic coat and used Vaseline for masking to create weathering.
(https://i.imgur.com/z4J7TvS.jpg)
 I then took krylon Bauhaus Gold and sprayed it onto the gauntlets until I had a solid coat. I then wiped the Vaseline off to expose the metal and reapplied the Vaseline over the weathered surface and sprayed Krylon pumpkin orange to the pieces.
(https://i.imgur.com/IqrMGAn.jpg)
(https://i.imgur.com/PP1FLmd.jpg)
(https://i.imgur.com/saWNWw9.jpg)

After letting it dry, I once again wiped off the Vaseline to create a layered weather effect

(https://i.imgur.com/3KZIjIw.jpg)
(https://i.imgur.com/V5qxVB3.jpg)
(https://i.imgur.com/xzRVEZK.jpg)

While painting, I also misted the gauntlets with black spray paint and misted more orange over it too dull it out. I've applied dullcote to the gauntlets to remove the sheen and once dry, I'll black wash the gauntlets more

Lol next phase will be to get some buttons installed and do some touch up painting and then I'm going to move on to the armor plates

I am really digging the concept art man. Looking awesome and that weathering on the gauntlets is looking pretty great. My current only personal 2 cents are as follows... Noooooooooooooooo more orange and green Protector kits lol I believe there are 5 kits total that are either approved or working towards approval that have orange gauntlets lol. I saw mention of blue accent colors on the kit. I think that would be pretty cool and reminiscent of the Jango Fett: Open Season Mandalorians. That being said, I also dig the black on the flame thrower bits and pleeeease pleeease please add the Jaig "Ears" that the Pre-Pro Fett eyes  :like: :like: :like: :like:

I hear ya. I REALLY wanted to do a green heavy turquoise but I have awful luck with air brushes. I thought about doing the tertiary light blue for the gauntlets but it just looked SOOOOO off. If it were allowed, I probably would've gone with a weathered turquoise

Post by: Jaster Fett on Nov 23, 2018, 04:29 AM
Nothing too terribly major tonight after dinner. I went on ahead and black washed my gauntlets using black acrylic paint and a piece of foam. I'd dab the foam in the paint and apply it to random parts of my gauntlet. I then would take a dry towel and smear the paint into the gauntlet. If I want less, I simply rub at the paint harder to get it off.

lol. I think they could look pretty sweet and would definitely be pretty unique. I did some spray paint research for you and in my opinion the Rustoleum Satin Lagoon blue might be a cool choice for a blue color but has appears to have a somewhat lighter blueish - teal vibe like in the old Marvel comics and in Jango Fett open season

Yikes. That sucks. In paint related news, stumbled upon this paint color at Meijer. It is  the perfect match for the Marvel comics Protector gauntlet/jetpack blue. I actually might repaint my gauntlet blasters this color.

Got quite a bit done today on my first free day in almost 2 weeks.

I mounted my wrist rocket on my left gauntlet. I'm going to look into buttons and switches to install here next week and do some final painting touch ups.

(https://i.imgur.com/AIROKl6.jpg)

As an added bonus, I was able to cut out my Boba style plates with 6mm sintra I had lying around. After I cut the armor out, I rounded all the edges and washed out all off to get it ready for primer and paint.

(https://i.imgur.com/w6yNV8p.jpg)
(https://i.imgur.com/fOMyZ9a.jpg)

After cutting my plates (To ESB playing in the background by the way), I went to Ace Hardware to see what they had for paint colors. I'm planning on using Rustoleum Meadow Green for the helmet and the satin outdoor green for the plates. I was originally going to use red but saw this fire orange color and was instantly drawn to it. What do you all think? Stick with red for the visor frame and knees or use this fire orange?

I thought so. After looking through the Pre-Pro Boba I was curious as to the design on the padding on the gloves and did some research. Once I discovered what they were, I ordered them. I'm planning on getting some ESB gloves from MoW to put them on and I have a friend who can stitch them on

Hey Protectors!

I just started to put the Rustoleum aluminum coat on my plate. I'm going to layer weather them like my gauntlets. I'm going to use the same gold as the second layer I used as the primary color to my old plates since the point is new beginnings but same ol' Jaster. Would like to do the red patterns on the yellow first, mask, then apply the protector green and remove the masking, but I feel like the mix of colors like that could look weird.

I wouldn't say that it would look weird (Boba Fett himself has yellow showing from underneath his green paint) just might be a lot of extra work just to show very minimal first kit paint. Looking forward to seeing how it turns out

And that's one of my big concerns is why do all that extra work to add in a miniscule detail? Especially since it's meaning will be lost onto those outside my clan. It's definitely more of a personal meaning

Just keep in mind that in order to stay in line with the Protector BRL, only certain colors are allowed on your undercoat.

A layer of yellow, orange, grey, or darker green may be used beneath the primary color
A layer of grey or a primary or secondary color may be used beneath the secondary color.

Looks like what you'll be doing will work, but just FYI.

Post by: The Unknown Mando on Dec 03, 2018, 12:35 AM
I'm not sure if it's brl compliant or not , if you want an honest opinion on it....
I'd leave out the yellow under the green....maybe leave the yellow out totally. Too much yellow there, and I don't think the shades work well together.
I'd go a darker red over or under the red on the face, and grey....dark grey....the two reds subtle shades difference, add depth, draw their eye .
for the green I'd go darker and match fetts as close as possible....he's a great starting ....base
Muted colours and subtle
That's probably not want you asked though

I think you make extremely good points that I can jive with. My whole approach was to try to be a little more original and less Boba... BUT since Protectors are direct inspirations of his design, I'm operating in a small box to work with, which I'm okay with. I'm just seeing what I can get away with

If wanting originality...look at fenns jetpack or rocket pack, dig into the comics for ideas, change basic style of gauntlets...add small greeblies, electronics. If a holster...what style...gunslinger? If using an ee3....are you using a sling? Is ee3 slung over shoulder and primary weapon some other weapon? Any accessories ....besides your trophies...stun collars? Grenades? Anything else? Anything from jango open seasons that can apply to a protector....their colours?
Capes? Poncho?

Boba is my primary inspiration. I'm currently building a Boba Fett kit for the 501st. My gauntlets are basically already done, they're orange. The knee plates are going to be red like my visor frame. I'm incorporating a Kama that's going to match the cape (cape is going to be brown btw) planning on adding a few buttons, dials and switches to my gauntlets. Thinking of using an arena jetpack instead of the Z-6 that Boba wears. ESB Boba gloves with the military patches like the Pre-Pro version of Boba. I'm going to have an EE-3 (ROTJ style since my Boba is an ROTJ kit). Side arm will be an ANH DL-44 and my trophies will be a damaged lightsaber, wookie braids, Death Watch Chest diamond, and a Trandoshian claw. The helmet is going to have gold jaig eyes and gold kill stripes

Here's a quick little concept

I love the white cheeks so I'm sticking with that. Going to go with the Boba green for the dome and sticking to grey as a weathering color like with Fetts. Key slot plate will be yellow along with the rear caps and the gaunts can be dark turquoise like Boba's from ROTJ (Allowed?)
I want to do the same for the back but I think it's against BRLs, if so, I'll probably paint it too match the green on my armor which will be a little darker than my helmet

I would go a different route with the blue gauntlets. Blue, while permitted should be used sparingly as a tertiary color, like how Fenn used it on his gauntlet weapons.

My apologies. I read the above and thought that's what you were doing.

So does your assessment stand for the helmet as well as far as the use of the dark turquoise is concerned?

Here's a quick little concept


Digging the concept. In terms of protectors, white cheeks are the way to go. One easy way to stand apart from having s way to Fett looking kit. For the jaig eyes, I personally would suggest shying away from the ones the Clone Troopers put on their buckets. Protectors are their own unique entity and I thing using those detracts from how special the protectors are to the star wars mythos. If you like that style, I would go with the basic jaig "ears" seen on the pre-pto Fett bucket and mythos Boba Fett helmet for sure.

As for the turquoise on the back, I think that might be approvable as that looks like the same color as the mandibles on the EITJ Fett bucket

I suppose that's a fair assessment as far as the jaig eyes are concerned. I really love the TCW version of the eyes. I do like Boba's from his very early pre pro build but there's already a few protectors here that are utilizing them. Perhaps I will go with the ears. Not really sure at this point, but at least I have something for a helmet

I finished basic weathering for my plates. I'm going to touch up the shoulders with more silver weathering and add some five scratches to the torso plates, black wash all the plates and add a dullcote to remove some of that sheen

Armor paint job is looking pretty good. On the jaig eye note, the jaig eyes you posted on the concept picture were based off of the Pre-Pro Fett "ears". I only suggest removing the middle triangle bits and then shift them farther up the helmet. No other approved protector has done that yet and the white will really pop  :like: Where my white jaig eye vode at!?!?

My Protector bucket is almost done. I need to clean it up a little, add some very minor weathering, finish the ear caps and then apply a dullcote to eliminate the shine.
The rangefinder should be here later in the week, I'll add a mesh in the back behind the coin slots and then it'll be finished.

Kripton Tops

He does good work but becauseof his international shipping, it takes A LONG time to get to you

For armor, would still highly recommend getting RKD plates from. Imperial Outpost Armory at FAC (Far Away Creations)

I ordered an EE-3 about 3 weeks ago. Should be here by mid February. After that, the only other major piece I'll need is my jetpack and then it's just a matter of assembling we withing.

A few days ago, I filled the Boba dents in and plan on sanding the cod and knees down tomorrow. I would've gotten clean pieces except for the fact that these pieces were originally ment for my Boba Fett kit to replace the ones I thought I ruined. Since I was able to salvage the original pieces, I'm putting these ones to good use. Also, I repainted the back of my helmet to a blue green similar to Boba's in ESB. The lime green was a bit of an eye sore and a

Also, a question for our Brigade experts. I have an ROTJ Boba Fett jetpack for my Boba Fett kit. I probably already know the answer to this question but I figured I'd ask anyway, can I use it for my Mandalorian Protector or is that a no go?

I quite like the variations of green both on the helmet and armor. That's a subtle Fett thing which I think works well here.

As for the jetpack question using a straight Boba Fett jetpack would be a crl violation since you are using a part straight off a Canon character. Your best bet would be to significantly modify the paint job so it still retains the element you want but differentiates you from Fett.

That's what I figured. Thought I'd ask all the same

I was thinking about using the same color pallet but using different shades of each color with different weathering and graphics applied

Post by: Mi'ix on Jan 27, 2019, 03:14 PM
I think that would be pretty cool.

Use the chipping and paint damage from Fett's pack as more of an inspiration of how to do your weathering on this one rather than a copy/paste with different colors.

As Samuel L. Jackson said in Jurassic Park, "Hold on to your butts"
I've got a TON of concept pallets for my jetpack. So I'm sticking with red and gold being the predominant secondary colors (and primary colors to my old kit) and the turquoise like in the back of the helmet as a tertiary. The  Dark grey color ins denote metallic finish, light gray for flat gray, while white denotes a flat white finish

I want to thank Mi'ix again for reminding me to cut the "U" at the bottom of my back plate, again, before I got to adding the color paint. I also cut out the JP harness slots as well. I went on ahead and added a clean up coat of my metallic and am going to let it dry. I'll apply the first set of masking fluid tomorrow night.

While Super Bowl shopping today, I decided to take a look around the hardware section to find some inspiration for knee darts and sure enough, I did. I found two pairs of hose plugs for $1.88 ea

I agree. Starting to become more and more attatched to that color scheme. I'm going to order a MOW Boba Jetpack after I get things squared away with my Boba

I glued the knee plate straps in with E-6000 last night. It's curing as we speak. Also glue N52 magnets to my plates that I will use to secure them

I put the foam in my bucket so my helmet fits my head
I've also glued the straps to my knee plates using E-6000. Same with the magnets too my chest pieces
I've also finished painting the back plate. Now all I have to do is dullcote it and get the velcro attached

I just got my Protector and Clan decals in. I'll be putting them on my plates tonight when I get off work.

I just remembered that I still need to paint the butt plate lol I added the metal layer hearsay and will add the gold layer tonight. I also have one more magnet I need to attatch: the one for my collar. That's an easy one. Then it's just a matter of attatch everything to the vest.
Cape and Kama will be finished Saturday along with my gloves. Cod/butt set is slated to be done Sunday. EE-3 blaster should be in this weekend or early next. Need to weather my DL-44 side arm holster and realistically, that's it. I'm going to wear my Boba jetpack for the con.

Guilty as charged! I really liked the added details on the Mythos Fett and am using those asthetics as inspiration. I was thinking of putting the bird skull on the other shoulder but the more I look at this set, the more I just want to leave it blank.

Looking good, buddy.

The EE-3 looks really small and comes across to me like a repainted toy.  If anything, I'd like to see the stock get extended so it looks a little closer to the full size version.

Can't wait to see all that gear on you!

Well... Poodoo :(
It was a 3d print I bought that I thought to be of better dimensions than the Rubies one I was using. The problem is I can't afford the hefty $200-$300 ones that everyone recommends at the moment and I don't exactly have the facilities or equipment to make my own

I think the barrel looks great, but the stock being on the smaller side is what makes it look like a hasbro EE-3 to me.

The BRLs want you to maintain the canon look for blasters but allow for modification so long as we can still tell it was a canon blaster.

One of my clan mates modified his smaller EE-3 by popping off the stock and D brackett and turning the carbine into a heavy blaster pistol that he carries around on a sling.

You've got your DL-44 so you hit the BRL requirement already for weapons, but consider that food for thought on the EE-3. :)

Honestly, the angle of the camera doesn't give us a good shot of how long the barrel is.  But based on the grip, it looks a bit small in your hands.

I know you just got this blaster in, so cutting it up isn't the first thing that you'll want to do. But consider slicing off the existing barrel and adding a shop-vac tube or something of the like to make an ESB-inspired EE-3.  This would extend the length of the blaster and also keep it "canon" influenced. You can always hold onto the ROTJ printed barrel for a future project.

That alleviates most of my headaches then :)

I did make the heavy pistol version of the carbine and It didn't feel right but it's something I may reconsider

I wish I didn't demolish my Rubies EE-3 so you could see the size comparison

Considering I JUST got this thing, I'd rather not cannibalize it and be out a huge chunk of money. I would love to build one from scratch but the biggest obstacles I have is finding a strong aluminum D-Connector to support a stock

I don't know of anyone with some wood working tools otherwise I'd make the stock out of wood so instead I'll have to use layered sintra

Oh yeah. A lot of fixes are coming. New flak vest is on the way for Boba that I'm just going to use for my Protector; that'll help with the plates. I definitely need to get a new side arm holster that hangs a little lower from my hip. Maybe a new flight suit (thinking of doing the ESB light blue or a khaki colored one)

I was actually just looking into different girth belts offered by members this past weekend.  Meridian Creations has some beautiful belts that are awfully close to mohair Boba-style girth belts.  It should be fine per the BRL's (I'm the one that wrote them, :P ) but we should get confirmation from the current Brigade Marshal. I think that'd be a great option for you and any future MP builds.

So I'm back to focusing on finishing up Boba so I'll be focusing on that for the next little while until he approved (501st)
After that I'm finishing up the Protector

Here are the fixes I personally noticed for my kit:

Plates are not properly spaced; specifically the collar to breast plates. Top of the plates are uneven. This will be addressed when I...

Fix the flak vest. It's far too big on my frame. Losing 60lbs will do it. I have a spare I'm going to modify; it's too tight in the arm pit. But it's a Boba style vest

The hip pouch is covering the side arm. My plan is to move the pouches closer to the front in an ESB style orientation. Worst case, I use a different holster

Kama needs to drape over the cod and butt plate, not under it. That's an easy fix

And of course, the jetpack; that's an easy one. As soon as I get my tax return, I'm going to buy a new one from MOW

My goal is to get this done by Lilac City Comic Con in Spokane in early June

I have an old original resin Man of War jetpack for my Boba and it is insanely heavy. I can last about two hours. Longest Iíve been in it was 5 hours at an airport event, and I had to literally have spotters hold it up while I leaned on hand rails and stretched. Hopefully they have improved the weight issue, but just be aware that they limit you a lot. If you have other options, Iíd explore them.

My current Boba pack is also a MOW and you're right, because they're resin, they ARE heavy. I think my longest was at Jet City. I think I had that thing on for about 5-6 hours. Heck, even when I wore it last weekend for 4 hours, I felt it in my shoulders lol

I definitely want to stick to one of the "Fett" packs and modify them. However, I REALLY don't want to sand down a large amount of 3d printed surface and the only other places I've found that sell jetpacks and jetpack kits are infact Manofwar and NME. And that's not counting TDH vendors

**UPDATE**
Darth Voorhees from TDH does jetpack kits. His are a polyester gel coat fiberglass body. Fiberglass is often lighter than pure resin casts but because this was filled in with resin, I'm not sure if it's a huge difference. On the bright side, I may be saving a little bit of money if I go that route.

Hey everyone!

I'm taking a break from my Boba fixes. All I have left to do is my helmet, but unfortunately, I can't seem to get it right in the colors and weathering, so I'm just going to have someone else paint the helmet. So now, I'm freed up to work on my Protector now. My first priority is to get my jetpack, but that probably won't happen until April.

Hey everyone!

Boba was approved by the 501st a few months ago. I began to start working on the Protector again when I found out the Celebration is coming to the west coast next year. As such, my financial resources have been devoted to that. At this point, all I have left to get is a jetpack. I have a new flightsuit coming in this summer from Arkady and my flak vest is being retailered to fit my smaller frame. Until then, I plan on submitting what I have as a custom kit and build off of that. This photo was taken at our clan photo shoot 2 weeks ago :

Absolutely gorgeous, vod.  Every time I see pictures of your kit, it reinspires me to continue working on my own.  I love your use of your old diamond. I would definitely add some extra weathering on your flightsuit and vest to match your plates and cape.  Couple questions, do you have hoses on your left gauntlet? I always find it odd when a flamethrower doesn't have a hose.  Also, do you have lights in your chest display? I can't tell from this picture.  keep up the great work and update us on that jetpack! :D

1. The flight suit is my current Boba one but I'm getting my new one end of the summer. It of curiosity, what do you suggest I do for additional weathering? I would love to hear your ideas
2. No, but that's a good idea. It's an easy enough modification

Got my jetpack harness hooks mounted to the back of my pack. So far, it looks good

It's a training sled harness I modified to mount my pack on. The straps velcro into place

Good looking jetpack and harness!  Hopefully you have plenty of padding over the top of your shoulders, they get so freaking heavy on long troops (as I'm sure you are aware from your Boba).

Where did you get this training sled harness? I've been looking to upgrade my outdated Man-Of-War harness.

My Protector pack is so light, I can barely feel it

No joke, got the harness off Amazon for like $20 lol

Okay, so here are some images to answer Kol's questions abut my harness

First, let me preface this by saying I have next to ZERO sewing or stitching skills so all of the add ons were applied using E-6000

My harness started out life as a strength and conditioning pulling sled harness that athletes use. This particular model was a loop fasten that I felt was unreliable.

So I cut off the loop buckles and shortened the fastening straps and added velcro to the Straps and chest of the harness.

I then, I glued a pair of nylon webbing straps onto the shoulders staring from the front and working over the shoulders in equal length and added the hooks at the end. For double security, I added rivets to the base and end of the straps as well as the hook loop.

Here are the most current photos of my Protector. I just got my new Fett flightsuit for Arkady and decided to use app-fix photos as an excuse to try it on. I'm still waiting on my flight suit from MOW and my plan is to gut the holster belt of some of the mounted patches and replace them with ammo pouches to get the kit BRL compliant

Final assessment from Regional Pre-App

I need to better center my chest diamond. After that, it's off to Applications. I'm going to be taking those photos tomorrow night.

WOOT WOOT!!!! Congratulations, vod!  Some super easy upgrades for Brigades, you've got this!

Post by: Jaster Fett on Aug 20, 2019, 01:30 PM
I re-reviewed the BRLs and it, indeed, doesn't look like it needs a lot. Boot spats have to be the same color as the vest or flight suit. Considering how heavily weathered the vest is, I'm not sure it falls in that criteria, especially since they do not match the flight suit. Is this an issue? If so, no big deal. My new MOW flight suit should be in tomorrow and I can just simply dye all those pieces to match.
The belt is obvious and needs Boba pouches. I'm going to just ditch this belt in favor of the traditional ammo belt doned by Fett, but I'm going to remove a few of the pouches to make room for my holster for my blaster.
2-4 trophies. I technically meet this criteria since there are kyber crystals at the end of my wookie braids, but I've also got a Trandoshian claw and a Krayt Dragon's tooth I can add.
Additional thoughts and insights are welcome!

Post by: Mi'ix on Aug 20, 2019, 03:48 PM
I'd be alright with the trophies they way you have them (wookie braids and kyber crystals).  If you want to add more, by all means!

As far as the concern about weathering, just make sure your stuff is consistently weathered.  In this case, you could opt for the classic Fett weathering of heavy at the ankles and fades as it goes up the leg.

That was my plan. Then I'll proceed with the new flight suit and soft pieces. Going to start working on the belt soon, as well

I do have a question for you Mi'ix!
What style of belt pouches are acceptable for a Protector. The BRL says Fett style pouches is that referring to a strict sense of design? More in the spirit? Etc? Would these ones be okay or no?

Also, how did you connect your gauntlet hose to the short sleeve of your flight suit?

Oh man, that first one is a good question. If all else fails you could swap out some velcro behind the flap if you end up having to cut off the long strap to make them look more like Fetts

I think Fenn is right on with his suggestion for modifying that pouch to get the "Fett-aesthetic". If you pop off that little strip and secure it with some velcro or a snap al la ESB that would work.

As for the hose connector, I just drilled a hole in the hose where it goes up into your sleeve, slip a caribeaner hook through the hole, sew an elastic strap up under your double sleeve, and hook the caribeaner hook to the elastic strap.  :8):

Thanks Mi'ix. As always, you're EXTREMELY helpful. I think I'm just going to stick with my Boba belt for now since that's that one I already have.

So this is probably the last major build update for this thread. I got my Manofwar flightsuit in on Wednesday and I gotta say, I was expecting it to be more on the tight and snug side. It is on the arms but otherwise, it's not! (I wouldn't have fit in this thing several months ago)

(https://i.imgur.com/yjj0JCT.jpg)
I went out and bought Rit Dye during my lunch break that same day from Hobby Lobby and got tan and camel colors.

(https://i.imgur.com/7XXt5Qt.jpg)
I dye bathed them that night using a 5 gal bucket and mixed it 1:1 of the tan and 1:2 of the camel.

(https://i.imgur.com/GjWOdqX.jpg)
Admittedly, I thought this would turn out lighter but honestly, I'm happy with the way it turned out.

All that's left is weather washing with some black and dark brown spray paint and then brigade app photos.

I'll post them on here first so everyone can comment on any adjustments if needed.

I'm going to try to shoot for next week for my photos. I can't believe I'm THIS close, guys!

I'm in the home stretch everyone! Brigade App photos are tomorrow!

I weathered the remaining MOW soft goods using Boba's weathering as a foundation for mine. I dusted the whole thing with a white tan spray paint to help make the overall color look fade and heighten the rest of the weathering and then I weathered the rest by dusting it with black and brown spray paint
