Rob's ESB Boba Fett
« on: Jan 04, 2022, 11:10 AM »
So over the break, I was given the unique opportunity to purchase and build some ESB Boba pieces. I figured, hey why not just build the rest of him? And here I am - Neck deep in a VERY complex and very long build. I hope to have him done this year, but this is what I have so far.

Helmet - Wasted Fett ESB Fiberglass Helmet. TBD- Electronics (Servo and blinking LEDs), Paint by me, all airbrush and topical. Going to mix my own acrylics
Gaunlets - Mix of Resin casts and Vac pulls. RKD lineage Gauntlets
Armor - FAC HIPS pulls. May reinforce certain pieces (Cod, kidney) with sintra for strength
FlightSuit/Flak - Arkady Designs on order - makes the blue less of a problem
Boots - Wasted Fett collab - ordered.
Jetpack Harness - Built in house by me , still figuring out bending aluminum
Jetpack - 3d printed by me, Slusho Z-6 JP design from thingiverse. Going to mold and cast the center body to reduce mass
Shin Tools - All 3d print, Rafal Fett
Ammo Belt - 3d Print boxes to match Rafal Fett's templates, leather by me. Borrowing Lo'car's Leather machine
Girth Belt - steal from my Pilot build, dye red using wood stain
EE-3 - 3d Print by me, with strategic replacement of parts (Metal front tube, may find scope too)
Pulce 40 - Print by me, modified to match on screen
Holster - TBD
Wookiee Braids - Hopefully made by me, leftover wig parts from Sabine83 and jthommes.
Chest display - Fett tronics ordered


And now PICS!!!

Jetpack came first so here are the progress pics


Finishing for casting

Harness Blueprints from Rafal Fett


Pulce 40 - lots of filling and sanding left

Some updates here.

FEET!

Weapon # 2

More Jetpack Progress - Had to do some work on the rocket to get the bottom to be stronger/detatchable with magnets.

And Harness Progress


Ended up having too thin strapping material, I am replacing it with thicker seatbelt material.
JP body will be casted with a 1 time use mold as soon as I can purchase more silicone and mold release.

Printed off the stencils for the helmet and armor. Probably work on the shoulders for painting next.

Boots with some paint. washes to get the overall color right in progress

Girth Belt is now dyed

JP harness is 90% - just need to do the white straps sewing to the shoulders

EE-3 is coming along too - looking to replace the front with a 1.5 in Sink pipe and cutouts for the vents. Might try to find a real 4x20 scope too.

MOAR progress!


Gauntlet tops painted with initial green - feels pretty darn close, now for the dark green weathering


Flame thrower unit assembled

I know Miix is following - gonna need pointers on the colored wires behind - might want to nest these under the joining surfaces of the unit
EE3 is just short a few greeblies - MOLEX connectors painted with red then weathered to match on screen - still have barrel weathering, silver dry brush, and goldish handle, plus stock/scope greebs to insert


JP is almost ready for BIG coats of rubber thickened. 2 more layers of the thin around the outside (Around the outside) and its good to go

AAANNNNDDD boots - will go to the booth for some topical weathering with the airbrush next.


EDIT:

Boots DONE!!


Holster arrived too!

Gotta see how well the mold will hold up. I didnt plan on making a production quality mold - maybe 5 casts total
