Thanks buddy.

The flightsuit arrived today, was a good pick me up. This photo has filters applied to it, but nothing really super altering color wise. The fit is spot on, considering I'm rail thin and somewhat average height, I was worried but this fit like a glove. Hopefully it all fills out once I get the armor and what not on.

Got that pesky adhesive mark underneath the killstripes done.

What color/brand paint did you use for this for this?

Tamiya Acrylics, I've got a color list here for ya. The colors change in the lighting, and my indoor lighting (especially during the winter) is TERRIBLE. Above is an outdoor picture in natural light.

Base Grey: X-2 (White) +XF-18 (Medium Blue)
Silver: I went with Testors Diamond Dust
Grey (Humbrol 79): X-2 + XF63 (German Grey)
Concrete back panels: Model Master Concrete Acryl
RLM 73 Back Panel: This one was a doozy, it ended up looking alright, but I think with more tweaking I could get it better XF24 (Dark Grey)+XF-27(Black Green)+XF70 (Dark Green 2)
Dome and Lower Cheek greens: A little XF-18+ mostly XF71(Cockpit Green) and just a few touches of XF-25(Light Sea Grey)
Upper Cheeks: XF-1 (Flat Black)
Mandible Maroon: X-7 (Red)+XF-9 (Hull Red)
Mandible Main Red: TS-33 (Spray Can, Dull Red)
Killstripes Yellow: XF-3 (Flat yellow)
Killstripes Orange: X-6 (Orange) + XF-3
Rangefinder Ear Sand Color: XF-59 (Desert Yellow) + XF-3
Left Ear Red: X-7
Left Ear Beige: XF-20 (Medium Grey)
Left Ear Green: XF-5 (Flat Green) + XF-51 (Khaki Drab) + XF-70
Black U on Rangefinder Ear: X-1 (Black)
White Strip on Rangefinder Ear: X-2
White U on Left Ear: X-2

Edit: Unless you mean specifically for the adhesive replication? That was a blend of the green mix that I concocted for the dome and cheeks but I added a bit of white and VERY little gunmetal. The gunmetal was added for the sheen effect that the adhesive left on the helmet. It's XF-10.

Looking REALLY good! Don't forget to get those pant legs super dirty! Oh, also I think you should rip up the bottom of your cape more so it looks more natural. All the holes looks a bit uniform at the moment.

Hey Bro, quick question.  Who made your bucket?  Or did you make it yourself?

thanks! And yeah I was thinking about doing the same with the cape and adding some variation in the hole sizes.

Roger that! Thanks!   Did you use templates/transfer paper method?  Or freehand?  If templates, do you recall the size/percentage printed?  (95%, 98%)??

I did the paper transfer method. The templates varied on the area I was painting. The rear panels were 95% if I remember right. The key slots were... 90%? I'll double check... I have some videos on YouTube where I specify these actually! Just search for AlexEXE Boba Fett

Where did you get your gauntlets from? I'm a skinnier person myself and have been wondering if there were any solutions for us apart from padding.
