    Re: Interested in building Jango

    The first place I would point you toward is reading through as many WIP threads as you can. Most of them will give you a parts list that works for them.

    Here is my WIP thread.
    http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f28/m...inished-38619/

    One reason I am not giving you a straight out answer as to a go here do that.....everyone is a bit different and different body shapes and sizes change things as far as where to go and who to look at. I am lucky in that I am about 5-10 185 so I can fit some screen sized stuff.

    Read through a bunch of the threads and you will learn a ton, and answer most questions.

    Welcome to TDH and enjoy it here. There are several of us Jangos who will be more than willing to help out as you start your journey.

    Yeah i'm on a list to get an Aosk cold cast helmet for next month and i deff wanna get a Man of War JP just have to wait until I get back from Free-fall school so the military gives me a fat back pay check! I'm very excited to start the build. I just purchased a fell set of armor from TK2280 and was going to get a belt and pouches from SEEKER but other bills got in the way so I had to hold off on that until the end of the month

    Hey, USMC, good to see you've got something to work on in the barracks. Better than getting drunk and cranking the tunes up. =P

    Where'd you grab your Westars?

    Re: Interested in building Jango

    hey im in the same boat just starting to gather all the contacts for pieces and hopefully a asok cc jango helmet. But anyways before I start purchasing pieces I was curious on helmet sizes and armor that will fit a 5'7 Jango well. Funny that the OG Jango was 5'7... any help appreciated! Hope your suit comes together well USMC. Keep us posted!

    You are right that the OJ ( original Jango) is about 5-7. You should be good with screen sized items like the Asok helmet and Cruzer armor. Most of the leather will be made to order anyways so there shouldn't be a size issue.

    Seeker also makes good screen sized armor... since he made his for himself, being 5'6-7" and all

    The Asok helmet is good for the screen-sized Jango's as well... Bobamaker and FettPride also have screen sized helmets I believe.

    So far I got lined up: Aosk helmet, MOW arena style JP, SEEKER ammo belt pouches and JP harness, Cruzer gauntlets, Ladysewforus Flight suit and vest, and I purchased a set of armor from Tk280. Just gotta wait for funds to purchase the rest

    Crow makes replicas of the boots and does boot runs, keep an eye out. Another company used the exact same mold for a boot they produced, and with some paint and modification you can save yourself a tiny bit. They are Buffalino Sentinel Boots.

    Welcome and good luck! I'm still building my Jango, I"m about a grand into it so far.
