  1. Jun 19, 2006, 10:35 AM - Jango armor sets #1

    This is for those of you who have seen my work and understand the time and quality that goes into it.While it is not highly regarded like some of the big names on the board, I assure you the quality is no less,and my service is impeccable.
    i normally go right to e-bay, but I thought I would throw out the announcement here first.
    The best thing is that it will require no paint or rub and buff(I sand it to a nice swirlmarked finish),and will be fully backed like my boba armor is for strength and thickness(jango armor is not as thick anyway).
    this is for all those who have no time, or loads of money to spend on armor.
    You can concentrate on the other components, while I take care of your armor.
    I am still fabricating the knee armor.Just have to get some bigger aluminum spacers, and aluminum tubing for the top darts.
    PM me if interested, and we can discuss the details.
    I will have some pics soon.

    I will second that! He does excellent work, and is very communicative. I still correspond with him.

    Well here it is so far, now keep in mind it is not finished, still need the middle diamond and knees, and various other small details.

    WOW how much? You can PM me if you do not want to publicly say. Are you going to be doing some knee and shin armor as well? What size of a person are these for? I am a giant compared to most other Jangos coming in a 6'3". I can't afford a set right now but possibly after my move in a month or two.

    Your size should not be a problem, the cod and knees would be fine.I would just size the top parts to fit ya better.
    And here is the shins, sorry I forgot to post them.

    Wow im very impressed, im curious though I sadly purchased a set of upper chest armor out of metal before i found this board ( wasnt somebody saying that everyone has their nightmare ebay stories) and am missing the color and back, anyway it looks much like yours, are you going to be selling strictly as sets or seperatly as well?Also how think is the aluminium?

    Oh and wicked job mate

    Well thankfully it was not me, I always included all parts needed.The metal itself is not that thick, but I apply a soft backing with increases thickness,and strength, and makes it nice and comfy to wear.
    Wears like leather armor, but has a metal exterior.That would be the best way to describe it.
    Once it is velcroed and strapped this stuff can take a load of trooping without fear of breakage.especially the knee armor, which is a problem I hear a lot of complaining about, so I solved it.My armor flexes a bit, so like a shock absorber it moves with ya.

    Are you using rollers or and english wheel? Are there welded joints or are they all one piece?

    No, my metal is easily worked by hand, gooped in certain areas.I use sheet steel.

    I tried my first armor set with sheet metal, but I must've gotten it too thick. that armor looks excellent.
  18. Jul 23, 2006, 7:26 PM - Re: Jango armor sets #18

    Thank you very much.
    Here are a few more pics of the armor in its weathered look, including the finished knees.Now before anyone says those darts are not accurate.I know that.I had a bitch of a time finding the right metal parts for the correct top dart size, but it was not cost effective, so I am just doing the same darts I use for my Boba sets.





















    Well thats all for now.Enjoy.

    Thank you.They are kind of a pain in the old rear, but worth it in the end.
