This is my 2nd custom.
This is something I'd wanted to do for a while, and when I came into the possession of a spare stalker figure, I knew the time had come!
I started of filing out the mask to replicate the look of Boba Fett, then built it up using modelling putty. Then I started work on the body, again with modelling putty. I then found some bits and pieces to build a rocket-pack for him. When all this had dried I commenced with the painting process, just giving the skin a light drybrush over with black and painting the armour and mask in roughly the same colour scheme that Boba has.
I found a piece of fabric for the cape that roughly matched that of Boba Fett's, and drew the same line on it using a brown marker pen. Once this was attached he was complete, so i just had to come up with a back story.
The Yautja Elders had ordered that a young scout be sent to the planet of Mandalore in the Mandalore system. Initially he was sent to track down and kill the infamous bounty hunter Boba Fett.
Upon learning that Fett's whereabouts were unknown, the elders made contact and ordered him to stay on Mandalore to learn about the Mandalorians and their technology. He learned about their weaponry, their leaders, their history.
The young scout, over time, had become obsessive over the Mandolorians and Boba Fett, so much so, that he crafted his own armour and bio-mask to match that of Fett's. Forgetting who he once was, and where he came from, the scout became a myth amongst the Mandolorians, a myth that they feared....
