I was actually just looking into different girth belts offered by members this past weekend.  Meridian Creations has some beautiful belts that are awfully close to mohair Boba-style girth belts.  It should be fine per the BRL's (I'm the one that wrote them, :P ) but we should get confirmation from the current Brigade Marshal. I think that'd be a great option for you and any future MP builds.

Those girth belts look very nice.

So I'm back to focusing on finishing up Boba so I'll be focusing on that for the next little while until he approved (501st)
After that I'm finishing up the Protector

Here are the fixes I personally noticed for my kit:

Plates are not properly spaced; specifically the collar to breast plates. Top of the plates are uneven. This will be addressed when I...

Fix the flak vest. It's far too big on my frame. Losing 60lbs will do it. I have a spare I'm going to modify; it's too tight in the arm pit. But it's a Boba style vest

The hip pouch is covering the side arm. My plan is to move the pouches closer to the front in an ESB style orientation. Worst case, I use a different holster

Kama needs to drape over the cod and butt plate, not under it. That's an easy fix

And of course, the jetpack; that's an easy one. As soon as I get my tax return, I'm going to buy a new one from MOW

My goal is to get this done by Lilac City Comic Con in Spokane in early June

Great plan of attack  :like: Wish I could mold/cast and sell my jetpack. Scratch building them every time is time consuming haha

I thought about getting the 3d printed parts and assembling it that way but that's too much work. I hate sanding 3d prints lol

I have an old original resin Man of War jetpack for my Boba and it is insanely heavy. I can last about two hours. Longest Iíve been in it was 5 hours at an airport event, and I had to literally have spotters hold it up while I leaned on hand rails and stretched. Hopefully they have improved the weight issue, but just be aware that they limit you a lot. If you have other options, Iíd explore them.

My current Boba pack is also a MOW and you're right, because they're resin, they ARE heavy. I think my longest was at Jet City. I think I had that thing on for about 5-6 hours. Heck, even when I wore it last weekend for 4 hours, I felt it in my shoulders lol

I definitely want to stick to one of the "Fett" packs and modify them. However, I REALLY don't want to sand down a large amount of 3d printed surface and the only other places I've found that sell jetpacks and jetpack kits are infact Manofwar and NME. And that's not counting TDH vendors

**UPDATE**
Darth Voorhees from TDH does jetpack kits. His are a polyester gel coat fiberglass body. Fiberglass is often lighter than pure resin casts but because this was filled in with resin, I'm not sure if it's a huge difference. On the bright side, I may be saving a little bit of money if I go that route.

I have a fiberglass arena pack for my custom. I donít even feel it when I wear it until I take it off. Same harness as the MOW for my Boba. Fiberglass is the way to go if you can!

Hey everyone!

I'm taking a break from my Boba fixes. All I have left to do is my helmet, but unfortunately, I can't seem to get it right in the colors and weathering, so I'm just going to have someone else paint the helmet. So now, I'm freed up to work on my Protector now. My first priority is to get my jetpack, but that probably won't happen until April.

Hey everyone!

Boba was approved by the 501st a few months ago. I began to start working on the Protector again when I found out the Celebration is coming to the west coast next year. As such, my financial resources have been devoted to that. At this point, all I have left to get is a jetpack. I have a new flightsuit coming in this summer from Arkady and my flak vest is being retailered to fit my smaller frame. Until then, I plan on submitting what I have as a custom kit and build off of that. This photo was taken at our clan photo shoot 2 weeks ago :

Absolutely gorgeous, vod.  Every time I see pictures of your kit, it reinspires me to continue working on my own.  I love your use of your old diamond. I would definitely add some extra weathering on your flightsuit and vest to match your plates and cape.  Couple questions, do you have hoses on your left gauntlet? I always find it odd when a flamethrower doesn't have a hose.  Also, do you have lights in your chest display? I can't tell from this picture.  keep up the great work and update us on that jetpack! :D

Thanks, vod!
1. The flight suit is my current Boba one but I'm getting my new one end of the summer. It of curiosity, what do you suggest I do for additional weathering? I would love to hear your ideas
2. No, but that's a good idea. It's an easy enough modification
3. You've asked me this before  :laugh: lol no, but when I get some spare cash I plan on getting a couple of Fettronics chest displays

Build your Protector!  :boba:

Congrats Jaster!

Your Protector looks awesome.

Makes me want to bust mine out!

Thanks Mi'ix! You REALLY should!
