    Nov 1, 2004, 9:46 AM - Rubieīs Jango helmet converted to Boba #1

    Hi. Here I am after a long time of hard work. I tried to find a good helmet but here in Spain is difficult, so I started with a Rubieīs Jango to make the experiment. I reshape it, reforced with fiberglass, replaced the visor, modified the right ear and make the right cheek piece and the dent (very hard job, I donīt recommend it). After all here are a few pics. Now Iīm working on the damage and weathering, so itīs not finished (the visor is still protected with tape). When I finish it I will post some pics with better quality.

    Wow...I must say you are doing an excellent job for using a Jango Rubies. You still have some work to do...but when complete I'm sure it will look fantastic! Keep us posted on your progress and keep those pics coming.

    i did teh same thing, so i was surprised and glad to see i wasn;t the only oen doing this. I don't think many people do this. But i strongly believe teh Rubies Jango is a better shaped helmet for either Jango or Boba then teh Rubies Boba helmet.


    The ear-piece was a pain, but i didnt completly redid it, moved it up, sawed soem of. Only thing that i had to make form scratch was teh piece below teh antenna holder... if you know what i mean.

    came out like this, id like to see yours... we kind of share a connection here 8P
