NorCalCap MP- (WIP)

Not a valid %s URL :boba:

I have a  large thread on TDH because Iím working a my families kits. However, I figured Iíd move my specific MP WIP here for feedback purposes etc. especially since I am hoping to have this completed and submitted by late July or August.

Despite having most of the major parts in hand Iím still struggling with the finer details and elements of balancing the late 70s Pre Pro/Man With No Name  vibes whilst maintaining the proper clearance criteria but thatís the fun part.
The Basics: ďManco FettĒ
 (pieces I have obtained)

Helmet GMH by Wasted Fett


[/img]https://i.imgur.com/njyI4Ia.jpg[/img]



Armor Kit RKD
I added the PP1 style clip




Gauntlets RKD
Completed the recolor, my mixed matched set is done.


Flight Suit Arkady
Pre Pro 2 fit recolored gray.  I intend to give this a bottom up  desert style weathering similar to the Mythos. Earth tones vs the simple blackened.

Jet pack Comic style by @mythos_fenn_shysa





Fett style Boots
Weapon K-11 Sacros by Woodchuck
Belt and Girth belt will be Fett style

Cape/poncho setup is going to be PP1 style with clip.
Gloves Fett style
I recolored both my cape and gloves brown to tie them together. Weathering and detailing to come.

Boots Boba style by Evolution Props


Holsters and accessories

I based a lot of my aesthetics on a mix of Pre-Pro Boba and Mythos Boba (kind of moving away from the kama for a more Fett like aesthetic)

I think you have a solid plan in place. I don't see too many Protectors with the ESB blue/grey flightsuit outside of Mi'ix. Most of us have grey or tan flightsuits (Fenn and I have medium tan flightsuits)

Green is always a great choice for a cape or a brown of the same color. Don't see a lot of those

Patches on the gloves are ALWAYS a great touch

Would love to see someone do mismatched colored gauntlets. I've thought about it but stuck with the red color. My first set before approval were orange

A Pulce for a side arm I dig

Lastly, I do believe a Jodo Kast style belt would look cool provided you have the minimum 4 ammo pouches to the belt (his belt has a few tools plus explosives. A bit more flashy than Fett)

I look forward to seeing what you come up with!

Manco Fett

Thanks for the insight brother. I appreciate your input and welcome any advice etc.. I also dumped a bunch of photo links as well for more visual references. I am definitely going to go mix n match on my gauntlets. Likely ketchup and mustard. That means Iíll be recoloring my green ESB right flamethrowers gauntlet. I have sourced a gal to do my K-11 holster. I am wanting a wet molded style vs. the Nemrod style.

Cap,

Just want to come in here again and say how great of a build this is, like your PP2. 

In going back and reviewing your pictures, it looks like there is some Boba Fett specific damage on your Collar, Left Chest Plate, and Abdominal Plate.  The paint work is absolutely stunning, but the dents that match Boba's have to be modified by either being filled and sanded smooth or the shape changed so much you can't tell the difference from Boba.  That's a little tricky with your RKD ABS plates, but I think it can be done with some strategic bondo, or heat to change the shape of the dents.  I missed that in the initial pictures you posted and I apologize for that.

I missed that as well but Cap and I have been discussing some options. Question for you though, most versions of Fett armor have a little different 3D damage. As Caps armor currently looks, he has customized the painted damage to be different than Bobas even with the built in damage to his plates. Obviously you can see some similarities as most of us use Fetts damage as a reference but his is still unique to his build. How specific do we want to get overall because in all honestly the only damage that is beacon light obvious and specific to Fett is the dent in the helmet.

If you've got Boba specific dents, and you're not doing Boba, they've got to go.

It'd be like your specific custom character taking battle damage in the EXACT same spot as Boba.
