    I am relatively new around here and was looking around for where to get some armor (bought a Jango from a fellow garrison member that is missing a few armor pieces and some that are in need of being replaced....and I am going to want to upgrade it anyway in the future). Looks like I have found the right place to come for it Seems that everyone thinks very highly of your armor and I am sure I will too. Hope to get some ordered from you in January. Thanks

    Really looking forward to this stuff man! I've got a BKBT bucket, so I know how amazing the quality of his molds are, and I've got a set of your holsters, so I know how quality your work is. Put them together and you're going to be producing some amazing product!

    Looking forward to getting in on the next run of these.

    Welcome. TDH is the place to be for this costume. I can only take credit for a few lessor parts of the Jango suit. However, the large majority of the armor I now make is from the awesome designs of a fellow member, BKBT. He's a legend in Jango armor. I was just fortunate enough to be able to carry on his legacy after his prop making retirement.

    I should have pics up within the week of his and my armor.

    Hey Cruzer
    whats the difference between trimmed gelcoated fiberglass and unpolished aluminum cold casted fiberglass? like is the other one stronger or is it on how good it looks?

    lol going to answer since I'm already here and I'm pretty bored at the moment..

    Cold cast fiberglass is the process of mixing aluminum powder in the fiberglass resin. The result, when casted with this mixed resin, will result in a very convincing and realistic looks and feel of aluminum/metal, and thus, no need to paint the silver portions if a jango helmet was casted with this method.

    Thanks TC.

    If I may add, the strength is probably the same becuase the majority of the strength is in the fiberglass backing.

    Ok, here's a photo bucket link to some pics of the gelcoated armor. I have a full set of cold-cast armor pulled that I'll post pics of after it's polished.

    And I was about to say that I didn't need the CC, that I would just go with the gelcoated armor! Now I have to rethink my plans again after seeing that picture

    The CC looks great!!! Its not a big deal, but one minor change I would make is that I'd buff the CC with the steel wool in a circular fashion rather than horizontally. But still, they look amazing. If I didn't already have so much of BKBT's armor already finished I'd consider going all CC.
