Fettski's ROTJ Boba
« on: Sep 24, 2013, 08:35 PM »
I have been posting updates over on The Dented Helmet and figured i should share here as well.

So far i have purchased:
Armor and gauntlets from RKD
Helmet from ASOK CC budget Boba
US army shelter half
hoses for gauntlets
chest display from Fettronics
soft parts( flight suit, vest, spats, pouches, and neck seal) from Arkady
RF remote kit from Salamander King
RF top lights from JC27
decals from lucksy31
jetpack, Girth belt, ammo belt, gloves, boots- MOW
jetpack harness-Kcr7pr
Wookie Braids- woodman
Collar/cod studs-jodokast89
Resin EE3 kit from an unknown origin


Here are some of the latest pics.


cod and collar- painted, weathered, sealed.




shoulders are reversed in pic, the one with decal(worn on left) is painted weathered and sealed. the other is painted and weathered.



right chest, painted weathered, sealed



compared to other chest, still needs weathering by the display cutout.



All of them together



remaining are just a progress update for my new rear belt armor, gaunts, and back

Your armor looks really good vod, I'm bookmarking this so I can see it completed  :D

I've always been curious about this process though, before I found the Mercs I wanted to do a canon Boba Fett costume. So I was wondering which paints did you use to get the green, the yellow, and red?

Here is an update on the gauntlets.  The remaining greebs are being painted and will be attached shortly.

Most of the painting is done.  The left chest is having the weathering around the display added.  the gauntlets will have the greebs added soon.  the knee darts will be added and some weathering shortly.  Soft parts should be in by mid November then i will begin weathering them and adding Velcro for the plates and getting the alignment correct.  Hope to be ordering Jetpack and Harness soon.

Here is the last pics of the armor until I get my soft parts in.  Gauntlets will be getting greebs and electronics soon.  Then I get to start the painting of the helmet.  The Remote RF is coming along and is already fabbed up, just need new electronics for the top and then disassemble for the paint up. 
Things i need to buy, frame for jetpack, jetpack, boots, gloves, ee3, girth belt and ammo belt.  I really hope to have this ready to debut at Dragon Con next year!!!

Looking good! I would give all your armor a rub-down with #000 or #0000 steel wool to deaden the yellows and dull the silver a bit.  It helps to blend all of the colors together a tad and give the plates unity. 

I prefer the #000 but all my steel wool pads are nice and worn out.  If you use brand new ones the #0000 might be a better bet.

Realy nice armor Vod ;) But aren't soft parts a little too shiny? Could be a flash in camera but vest looks like it would be grey/silver?
