For the helmet I'm going to he heavily modifying a Jango Fett 2 piece helmet. I have the bordon connector and the Rangefinder stalk in metal ordered.

My blaster pistol arrived from the UK today and it needs a lot of work to it but I think it will work perfectly for this kit
I'm hoping on working on it this weekend when I have the time

Another small update

I ordered my Jetpack harness today from MOW. Also my correctly sized girth belt and 3D printed pieces should be here on Tuesday which I'm super excited about! This is slowly coming together nicely!

I received my MOW Jetpack in the mail Monday!
I cant wait for this weekend when I can start working on it!
I'm gong to have to sand down my 3D printed rocket to get it to fit and sand down the raised details on the top of the pack as its not accurate to the reference pics,  but other than that I think I'm good
Oh and its going to need a few baths per instructions lol  ;D :D :P :laugh:
