Thank you, Ref!  I wanted to look at your Boba build thread for inspiration, but all of the pictures links were dead!   :(

Anyways, I finally got little symbols done on the ear caps.  Now I'll move on to the topical damage/chipping in that area. 






These stencils from Fett4real are great!  Saves a lot of time and effort with a great finished look!

I also experimented a little bit on the Protector and added some grease stains with some crayons that I bought.  :P

Thank you, Naran!

I had some time last night to finish up the non-RF ear cap, minus spatter of course.  I think there's a tiny bit of silver to add, but she's starting to come together very nicely!

Man..... You know I've been following along privately.... But I just have to say.  This is some stellar work!   It's gonna be a top notch Fett when you get done.  8)

Been a little bit, but work has progressed!

Silver on the face!  You start to get an idea for where a majority of the "damage" will be.




Followed by the dark gray.






I added the silver damage to the back rim and keyslots, but nothing else.  Next step will be adding the gray on the back.

Thank you, guys!  I'm really looking forward to finishing this project up! 

Speaking of transporting it around, I need to figure out a way to do so...

Looks awesome. Shame about postage to UK.

As something like that isn't available over here we tend to use soft lined motorcycle helmet bags. Similar principle.

Excellent ideas all around!  I may look into that a little further, Ref.

Anyway... a little more progress was made last night.


Boba now has a visor!  Using some mirror tabs, chicago screws, and brass thumb screws, I can take the visor out for cleaning, maintenance, re-paint, etc...

In addition to the visor, I added the light blue/gray damage around the face and rear portions of the helmet.  I forgot to take pictures of the back side.  I also installed (just for pics  :P) my new hollow rangefinder stalk and borden from MCR.  I've got the kits for the RF topper and servo from Fettinator.  Just need to figure out how to install them.
