    Hey guys,
    I'm currently doing a commission build of a 1:1 Boba Fett on a mannequin for a fellow RPFer.
    He requested a WIP thread, so here it is.
    THIS IS NOT A TUTORIAL
    I will not go into what paints I use or how I do what I do.
    Sorry, but this is just a build thread.
    Ok, let's get started
    Here's some of the parts we have so far

    anyone know what the helmet is, i see a little logo/signature bottom of the visor area but can't really make out what it is, who's the builder of that fine bucket?

    and love seeing boba fett builds come together, i'll wait to see more.

    Fettpride is the helmet maker

    and the gauntlet maker

    Thanks for the compliments guys...
    The mannequin I am using is from ebay, but I did have to cut and modify the arm and hand to get the right look.
    Please disregard the jumpsuit, it is my Ghostbusters jumpsuit standing in until the real one has been sewn by crazy4bobafett.

    Ugh, I've been in Minnesota for most of this month with work and just returned today.
    The material for the vest went to crazy4bobafett before I left, and she is hard at work making ALL of the soft parts.
    She is the absolute best and I wouldn't have anyone else touch the soft parts.

    I finally got the camera to work so i can show a little progress

    That is amazing to say the least and is going to be a great part to their collection. When I start to build mine I hope to be able to get my hands on this pieces.

    Put the studs on the collar and cod
    [​IMG]
    The chestlights are also in and the backplate is attached to the Collar via the Studs.

    The gauntlets are being assembled and prepped for painting.
    I also started working on the shin tools using real found parts.
    Stay tuned...

    I made my own Boba Fett costume a couple years ago, and having made all the parts myself I can truly appreciate how much more accurate builds like this are, especially with Fettpride's parts. Great job on the painting so far, I may try to save up and have this done right for myself.

    Could you please post a picture on how you did the modification of the right arm?
    Did you use fibreglass or some kind of duct tape to get it in this pose?

    Btw. I REALLY like what you did so far! Great work! :love:thumbsup

    I fiberglassed it
    i cut the arm apart ,added a piece of bent rebar to support it , then filled the hollow arm with foam and glassed over that.
    I also cut the hand apart to get the fingers right.
    they need a little more bondo work

    They are fantastic as always and I can't recommend her more.

    Slapped the hard parts on for a test fit.

    The spacing is off because it's only taped on for now,

    Made the shin tools and weathered the jumpsuit/pouches/spats
    [​IMG]

    I also installed the visor and pre-shaded the helmet
    [​IMG]

    I also had to fabricate a new bottom cover . The gauntlets were missing it when i got them, I contacted the maker (fettpride) about it over 3 months ago, but he still never sent it.
    So i made this one yesterday
    This one is Laser cut Styrene

    Out of all the SW characters, Fett is by far the most interesting and that suit looks awesome! Well done :)

    umm...
    the title does say "ROTJ BOBA FETT BUILD" :lol
    I'm not one of those cross-dressers that does the ESB helmet on the ROTJ costume. ;)

    Small update today
    weather and work has put a serious stranglehold on this project
    The JP is getting close to done
    I took a quick pic of it before I sprayed the Blue.
    [​IMG]

    I hope to spray the Blue in about an hour or so.

    I also screwed up the vest, but i had it repaired and sized down a tad.

    It looks really nice S1P. Are you using Floquil or Humbrols for the helmet?

    BTW_ i hate the Testors paints.
