Nice looking Jetpack man. There is a guy in TDH that sells the correct decals I used them as a guide to help paint mine on.

Looking good! Sizing is almost spot on. I really admire your work weathering it so well and accurately. Hope the build ends up as good as it has been so far. I'll definitely be keeping tabs on it! Oya!

I'm sorry to say buddy, but your jetpack weathering just doesn't look a whole lot like the movie. With such good reference available for the ROTJ pack I don't think that it will pass muster that way.  Unless you still have a lot to add topically, you may need to re-asses where you are on that piece.

Here are some updated pics of the Jetpack/ backplate adjustments. Big thanks to Vultana for helping me out.  Still working on the weathering and remaining parts of the jetpack once i get the hardware parts configured.  Then finally comes the helmet.

Here was after we reshaped the backplate to fit me better. I know there isnt much to see but thats the point, no backplate sticking out the sides anymore.


Here is the Jetpack being supported by the harness. The far left stud is missing because it needed a longer screw for the cape.

Finally put all the pieces together and took some pics.  I know there is still some work to be done but any comments or critiques are welcome.

It looks like just your head got caught in a Tatooine sandstorm and wore off all the paint.  :P

But seriously, looks awesome.

Looks great! I'd give your spats and gloves a little bit of weathering. I think you should also shorten your jetpack straps. Also make sure we can still see your girth belt! Bring the girth belt down to cover the top of the cod a bit more and have the ammo belt sit on the top edge. Oh and tuck that divers buckle up under your vest.

This is an excellent ROTJ Boba! Can't wait to see what you do with the helmet.

The spats and gloves will get a little bit of weathering still, they are still brand new. 
The jetpack straps will get adjusted to bring the top of the pack closer, my helper needs some more training. 
I have realized the girth belt is too narrow,  about half of what it should be.  I am talking to the guy who sold it to me and he should be getting replacements in this month and should do a swap for me. 
The divers belt for ROTJ should be ok to stick out as it is seen in the movie.


I attached a screen cap but it is not showing up for me on my work network.  ill check later and update if needed.

sorry for the delay in the update.  Ive been staring at the helmet procrastinating.  I did some work and took some pics this past weekend.  Im not quite ready for my application, but very close.  Id like to share some pics.
I am aware i do not have the girth belt,it is being swapped out.
I need to finish the helmet paintjob
I am missing the 2 greebs on the jetpack, they are being painted
other than that, i think i am at about 95%.
