    Re: Flight Suit

    That's probably the easiest, it's already made, and probably not too expensive. I used black Dickies coveralls for a tie fighter pilot I did last year.


    I made all that stuff (except the helmet) before I realized you could buy it. My Jango is being done right. If your picky there are a couple of board members that make realy nice suits to your size specifications, but it'll cost more.

    Get 2 pairs of the Dickies coveralls. They come in navy blue and they are about $30 each.

    We do not like to dicuss -the best- in term of anyones work here.

    You can ask for different works from people who build Jango's but I would reword your question

    I need a new flight suit. My current one is wearing out.

    Bill, are Dickies coveralls the ones you wear? Thanks.

    I too would love to find a member I can commission to make me a top grade Jango Jumpsuit. Please submit recommendations.

    Hey Asok, is the dickies link to the "most Accurate" jango color they offer?

    Re: Flight Suit

    BobaMaker offers a Jango flight-suit, anyone got one?
    If so, any comments or Pics?
    I suspect I'll get one if I hear nothing negative, then pics will follow.

    The really Boba Fett jumpsuit was in two pieces. Jeremy Bulloch told me that when they didn't need to see the lower part of Boba's body, he'd be wearing shorts.

    Re: Flight Suit

    Your best bet for coveralls is to get a pair of Red Kapp coveralls (can't think of the specific color right now) and convert them because they make the closest in coloring to the color you want for a Jango flightsuit out of all the major coverall makers. Look for Skalen Fehl's (sp?) thread of his suit and you can see the kick butt job he did on converting a pair.

    I have a pair and they would have been perfect if I hadn't made my own.

    Now if your thinking about going with two pieces, a separate top and bottom...then I'd always thought about looking into those hospital garbs (don't know what they call them) because they come in a wide range of colors and look comfortable to wear. But I don't know if they make them with long sleeves or without the V neck? But I'd think it'd be easy to alter a top of one of those to have a double sleeve.

    Re: Flight Suit

    [FONT=Arial]I bought some dark navy Dickies coveralls for my Jango. I looked at the flight suit that BKBT made for me and the new one looks dark. What should I do? Thanks.

    The one that BKBT made for me is getting holes in them where I put snaps on the flight suit to the armor pieces. That's why I needed a new one to look a little nicer.[/FONT]

    Re: Flight Suit

    How are the Navy blue coveralls weathered and recolored to look more of that lighter more accurate purpleish color? Im in the military and we wear dark blue coveralls so I have tons of them hanging in my closet. But I need to know what to do to conver them to the right color.

    Let me know

    Thanks
