    I tried PVC for mine, very hard, very light, and easy to cut, just apply a little heat to make it fit your knees and you are good to go. The battle damage looks very cool and real after painted, you can actually scar it very nicely.

    It sounds like the best direction to go in here is for me to pull a copy of your knee armors and send them to you, you modify them, and then ship them off to Lewis and JB for hyperfirm molding.

    This will save me a lot of time and allow me to dedicate more of it to dialing in the boot armors, constructing the thighs, modifying and molding the cod you sent me, and finishing my rubber Westar project.

    Thanks bro!

    I worked on the shins a little more. Let me know if there's anything I need to change, otherwise I think I'm going to go ahead and drop them and the boot armor in some silicone.

    Thanks

    The shins look great!!! I'd say those are ready to go! They look spot on, definitely put me down for a set.

    shins look good, but thr boot armor is off. you need more curveture towards the toe area.

    Just for you! I extended the toe a tad and emphasized the curve more.

    I made them screen-sized proportionate on a size 10 set of Reinone Jango boots. So I'm guessing they'd look good up to a size 12 or so. After researching the boot armor ref. pics, I felt the boot armors were a lot smaller than what I had come to know. If you have a big shoe size, I'd say a BKBT boot armor would be best because I think they're slightly bigger.

    I'll alter the pics to include some measurements.

    Re: Cruzer Jango leg armor project--revisited

    Since the shin and boot armors are at points I'm satisfied with, I decided to now drag my thigh armor project out of the unfinished projects bin (f.y.i. the unfinished Seeker cod project is next). Here is the right thigh. I'll be finishing up the left one this week and getting them ready for molding. I still need to adjust the curvature from side to side just a tad. They will be approximately 11.25" tall along the curvature on the center line, and about 9" wide along the curvature on the center line.

    Re: Cruzer Jango leg armor project--revisited

    Thanks guys. Here are some updates on the right thigh after I corrected the side to side curve. I'm happy with it and will start on the left one today. These are probably scaled more for people who are 5'9" and below, so I will have to make a slightly longer pair for you taller Jangos.

    Ditto on what Jango_Wes said. Thanks for thinking of us "average height" guys, though.

    I just found this thread today after being off the boards for a while. I am in need of Jango thighs and shins. I am 6' 2".

    Re: Cruzer Jango leg armor project--revisited

    Just a small update. I ditched my first thigh prototype and made entirely new masters for the thigh pieces. The second masters are made wider and taller to fit about a 5'10" person. They'll also be trimmable to fit a shorter/smaller person.

    I then began noticing how the curvature of my first thigh proto had a curvature similar to the shoulder pieces. So, after toying a little with WOF's template and studying pics from the Jango Reference CD, I made a proto shoulder armor. With that, I've now decided to continue my Jango armor project to include the rest of the upper body pieces. I'll get started on this part of the project after I receive some screen-cast parts soon.

    Add all of this to a pull of Seeker's Jango cod he asked me to make modifications to and gave me permission to mold and cast...and hopefully I'll have a whole set of Jango armor ready to drop into silicone by the middle of next month.

    Oh, and don't let me forget to mention I'll be making a new backplate mold. And, I also ordered a gallon of special resin to hopefully produce a few sets of all this stuff in cold cast.

    Thank you to everyone for their patience with this project!
