Drilled holes for knees while still untrimmed to give it a more stable platform to drill holes with hole saw.


Fiber glassed in the weak area of the knee and poured in resin around the cast block dart holder while the knee was untrimmed. I trimmed the knee after the resin all dried.

Knee armor done, I just gotta clear it and add the straps. I repainted the shoulder armor to match the paint style of the knees. I decided to add the pre pro style sigil to my shoulder armor for the Mandalorian homage.

Old knees compared to new ones.

The shoulders have been cleared before  already because I made changes to them when I did the build the first time, and this is just repainted of what I had.

Going through  the the BRL's and CRL's they only other "Boba" changes needed were to the chest armor, and helmet dent.

Chest armor:
 
    Armor plates used for custom costumes may not include the same dents that appear on Boba Fett costumes.
Nothing anywhere says about other damage.

With knees, the dents are there, but they are not painted in way near to look like Boba's damage.

We should probably let a Brigade Team Member speak to that then.

I just know that we typically had folks fill in the dents that matched Boba where ever they occurred.

Don't get me wrong...I love the work you've done so far!!  And I can understand your frustration.  But.....

Per current CRLs:

Quote
No unmodified parts or themes can be used from Star Wars canon/legends face characters. This includes, but is not limited to, lightsaber trophies, lightsabers/darksabers, paint schemes, and armor pieces/elements. This does not include blasters, knives, and other non-unique weapons or small props. Parts and themes from non face characters such as storm troopers and clone troopers may still be used as long as they adhere to the CRLs in every other manner.

Boba dents have always been kicked back at an OM level for custom kits.  I'm not a marshal or a division captain, but brigades still have to meet the CRLs...

OK, thanks for the feed back, it is not a big deal to fix. I fill the dents in the knees and just change the weathering a bit.
Dents getting filled.


I'll just re weather it a bit.

Started the gauntlets. I got the hinges installed and the bottoms fiberglassed.

 I decided to rivet the hinges to the gauntlets them selves. Now a Boba Fett could possibly do the same by countersinking the rivets and Bondoing over them and hiding them.
Holes drilled for hinges.


Riveted bottoms.



Inside. I did have to use 1/4" rivets on some holes.


Done.



Bottoms fiber glassed. I didn't feel the need to fiberglass the tops, but I did feel the need to fiberglass the bottoms as they were so deep and had a good wide span to them.

I almost feel bad for bringing it up, I just know it got caught after I got admitted and was a suggested fix since they missed it on my app. Im just trying to think how I'm going to fill the dents with Rubber knees :(

Could you change the shape of the dents rather than fill?
Nice work by the way Lynn, I love that shade of yellow/ orange
