Usually people convert Boba Fett into Jodo Kast. However, I had not been able to track down a decent Boba and was stuck with the terrible quick draw Boba Fett or the overpriced VTC Fett. My toys r us were stocked with Jodo Kast figures going rather cheaply and being a completist, bought one. However, despite the terrible paint job and belt on back to front, it was a great figure that, despite the new head, was a Boba repaint anyway. I set to work, popping the head off and replacing it with a VTC clone trooper head that was Boba's likeness. Then it was a case of trimming the target antenna thingy off and replacing it with wire, pinching the cloth off the awfull saga legends Boba and a repaint in Tamiya, Citadel and vallejo. Finding reference material for ESB and ROTJ versions, I opted for an in between style. In short, it is not screen accurate but looks darn cool. Little else to say really other than it was testing but a lot of fun to paint and then weather up!

(note the paint missing on back of knee!The perfectionist in me wont tolerate this)

Wow, that's an incredible Boba. My girlfriend is currently making a Boba as well I know what you mean about finding good reference shots, we were running into the same problem. This turned out incredible though.

Thank you. I found that I would look at other model kits and figures on the web and have a look at what they did. As in the expanded universe and I believe the Clone Wars, Boba modified and repainted his 'father's' armour and I like to think that he would have different paint apps according to as and when he repaired or modded the armour. Having a few SW books helps as well! All the best for you gf's efforts
