    May 21, 2012, 6:20 PM - Its Jango time! #1

    I've been watching for a while, and its time to post I'm giving in and adding a Jango to the collection. He's just too awesome ... I feel like I don't have a choice.

    Also hoping to start a Zam for the wife so we can troop these things together! I think we have our work cut out for us.

    So, thanks in advance for answering my questions. If you've got any hints, tips, or items to dump let me know. Oh, and if there are any odd posts blame that on my wife using my account to dig through the Zam stuff

    Welcome to the Fett club. I started with a Jango build. Now I am building a Boba. It is definitely an addiction.

    Thanks! I can defenitely see the "addition" side of it. After I built my clone I immediately made a list of a dozen other clones I'd like to build.... Going to need a second job if I don't watch out

    I don't doubt the time at all. So much detail in this. I've been scratch building some gauntlets based on templates here (thank you TDH for being good at documenting!) and I'm probably at 40% after 4 months. The soft parts are too scary to even start!

    There aren't too many of what consider to be soft parts on jango: flightsuit, balaclava, and gloves. The hard parts are pretty obvious. But all the leather I consider to be their own category, and theyre the trickiest of the entire build. The vest, holster, birth, and ammo belt, unless you know your stuff with leather I would suggest that you source those parts from various makers here.

    Yes you do! You look a little less white and grey in your pic here

    Your Boba pics are fantastic, by the way!

    - True on the soft parts. After reading all of the posts about flightsuit color it makes me a little nervous though.
    - I do have some skills with leather (grandfather was a cobbler/saddlemaker east of you in Miles City!) and am excited to do those.
    - I've also been toying around with making a helmet and the cheek angles are giving me a fit. Seems like every pic I look at makes me change my mind. Defenitely going to source the armor - I won't be able to get the good curves and depth that I see on the best Jango's on here with my skills in that area!

    Can you tell I'm jacked about this?

    Don't worry about the color. You are just looking for a good blue purple color. You can go on the RIT website and look at a lot of different colors. Another place to look is Dharma Trading Company. They make a ton of different colored dyes that are very nice.
