    Aluminum Jango Armor....

    Has anyone successfully completed some Jango Armor in aluminum? Here's what I've got so far after a long day of work and 3 cod pieces later. I put the parts from my Boba armor in to fill the gaps. I will have to redo the chest parts because I didn't realize that the Jango chest armor is different. Doh!

    Now, obviously, these have not been finished with a grain or anything. That will come later.


    The inside of the cod piece. She aint pretty but she'll do.


    Here is the side view of the cod piece. I think it could've used a bit more "cupping" action but it will do for now.

    Crap. Every time you post a new project on your website, it inspires me to start something else. Cut it out!

    LOL. I finished my Boba although there are a ton of improvements to be made. There are a couple Bobas here in the SOcal area so I want a back up costume.

    Very nice aluminum work.

    I am making a Boba, but here are the links to a couple of threads that show my progress on my collar and backplate:

    BTW, I belive that Hand-Schaub and METALBOY have made aluminum Jango's. You may want to PM them, or search their old posts.

    Nice work! All of my armor except the Gauntlets and Pack are Metal. I did all the Armor myself. I'm very impressed with the cod armor you did. Now your going to make me re-do mine.....very nice.

    Thats some pretty nice stuff. I made some out of 1/4th inch thick aluminum but it was a little heavy. I use all the stuff I've made for paintball.

    I bought this rig off EBay. It was kind of expensive but I think it is pretty nice.

    Here is a better picture of the armor so far. The knees and instep armor are in the works. The gauntlets will be plastic....for now. I am getting a BKBT helmet that will be nickel plated and then painted.

    I think I made the back plate like the Boba plate instead of Jango. OOps. Too late for now. I'm outta time. I still have to sand, polish and grain the armor.

    It's very light. I think that it weighs less than 2 lbs right now. That's including the backplate.
