A terrific looking Fett, I'm definitely going to be watching this build closely as I'm also working on a ROTJ Boba. Just out of interest, how wide (at its widest point) is your back armour?

The back armor sizing depends on you. I fall  right on the cusp of the Medium/ Large armor sizing from IOA. I am 5'11", 205 lbs. The medium backplate is 16" across the middle of the back. If I had to venture a guess, the large is 17". I have one here in my shop, and i'll try to remember to check later.

Like I said in your thread, if you want some help, just say the word.

It looks like you went with the hero jetpack paint up. Don't forget the burgandy ring that extends further up the jetpack base. Also the hero jetpack did not have red dots on the thrusters.



More specifically



Beautiful paint job as always though.

You saw it first Don ;) I still have some masking fluid on the missile collar, but was losing daylight.  As far as the thrusters, Theres a reason those are red at this point.
I never said I was done either ;)

For you Don. ;) I'll explain the story of the collar and thrusters some time down the road.

No worries vod. The build kinda got put on hold for the Supertrooper build, so I'll pick it up again at some point. Until then, I guess I'll just be forced to wear this darn supertrooper... *Sigh* ;) "Don't look at me, I'm hideous!"

gday vod
on your jetpack paintjob, whatd you use to discolour the yellow, was that some paint or a wash applied

whats harder to do the all white super trooper or a fett, id think super trooper may have some parts that are harder to source as its not as common as a fett

The discoloration on the JP is airbrushed, but could be achieved by a controlled brownwash.

The Supertrooper was multiple times harder. The lack of info and good reference material is killer. 2 years of parts investigation went into tracking down the needed pieces. Many hundreds of dollars were spent on "research parts" that sit today, dusty, waiting in a box for a custom build to come along and claim them. The satisfaction of knowing it was the first complete and approved Supertrooper both here and in other clubs is a wonderful feeling. Knowing that I have the information, knowledge, and parts to help others down the road is also very rewarding.
 However, completing this build is bittersweet for me. I feel compelled to both "be the Supertrooper" and raise the bar for the next kit, which would then move the Supertrooper to a mannequin. So, where do I go from here? There are a few Fett variants that have promise (e.g. Mythos Fett, Pre Production 1), but I still don't see it as raising the bar for myself.  It's going to be difficult to decide what comes next.
