Rubies Boba Fett conversion
« on: Feb 04, 2018, 12:10 AM »
This was going to be a WIP, but I was posting elsewhere. So for your viewing pleasure here is the complete WIP all in one thread!  Enjoy the viewable pictures!


To begin with here it is. The 2015 Rubies Boba Fett helmet. Not too shabby for the price and it fits my rather large head perfectly.




(Removed the earcaps and rangefinder. Gave it a good scuff with 220 grit sandpaper.)


(First fill in of the dent and dings with Bondo bodyfiller. Also first coat of primer.)


(Fun time filling in the spot where the rangefinder was.)


(Keyslots filed out.)


(Finishing up filling and smoothing. Also you can see the 3d printed earcap I created in Autodesk Inventor.)


(Final sanding at 600 grit. Also added in damage.)


(White topcoat is done!)


(Backside.)


(All taped off to add in the next color!)


(Backside.)


(Turned out nicely.Minor tape errors.)


(Backside with the third color!)


(There it is! Just needs weathering at a later date.)


(Left side.)


(Right side. Normally has rangefinder.)


(Backside. A little hard to see the third color in this lighting.)

Really well done on the cleanup!
