Man o' War - canon Boba parts. Expensive, but VERY high quality. ;D  In this case, it's the hanging pouches/pockets that are MOW - Lynn made the ammo pouches himself.

Oh ok ya i was referring to the leather pouches, those are nice! great work Lynn

That is correct! The belt didn't come out as nice as I wanted it to however. I tried to double over the material and glue it together with industrial auto grade contact adhesive that I used to install our vinyl top on our '65 Mustang thinking  it would do the job, and I was wrong.  I had to use duct tape to hold it together and use shoo goo to make it stick together. The grommets held the ends together.
I originally also made 10 ammo pouches but 7 seems to work out well without being too much, I'll know more when I get it on with more parts.
It will work though.

I love the work. Very nice. I want you to keep in mind that while doing an "ST custom" to indeed, make it a custom. The cod is obviously from a boba set, which is OK if those pieces are used sparingly, but the damage to the dent paint is ROTJ in different colors. If the suit has all of the same damage as a ROTJ or ESB boba, or the plates can be identified as such, it will likely cause a problem at App time. Remember, these characters are supposed to be individuals, not reorganized or reimagined canon characters. The main reason for this is that it makes the custom character you have created look like an inaccurate canon character- which of course is not approvable. Drawing inspiration from a canon is OK, but you don't want to look like an inaccurate canon build. The dents in bobas armor (whether it be ROTJ, ESB, or a PP) jump out plain as day. When coupled with the same paint distress in different colors, it doesn't go over well. The work is top notch and looks great. I'm going to discuss this with the App team.

If you want to do a "custom boba" I recommend looking into the Mandalorian Protector brigade.

It's spelled "Canon", not "Cannon".

Under stood on that 100%
I agree on your statements. 
I went with Boba armor as armor is expensive and I want to be able to go to a full fledged Boba at some later date. I'm not willing to fill the dents to go a full custom and not be able to go back to a full Boba, We just simply cannot afford to get two sets of armor for me to costume, thus the decision to go this route is more finical and not a nose thumbing to the MM rules.

I want to be able to troop in this gear for a bit and get a feel for things again as I've been out of it for 16 years, and then I may go to a full Boba Fett.

As for any dents, I have over done the weathering around them to make them bigger then what it is.
I will be looking into the Mandalorian protectors.

I didn't even know this Brigade option even existed.

I'm taking your advice and wisdom and doing a total redo instead of doing a dirty super trooper..

Thanks,
Lynn
