    Jul 27, 2009, 10:32 PM - Jango, completed at last! #1

    So, I have technically been working on this Jango for 6 years and all my hard work has finally paid off. I debuted this at SDCC this year. I actually wore it for the first time ever at the con...not even a test fit previously. Thanks to all those who have helped me over the years! Here's a breakdown of the parts.

    Helmet - Fettpride Screencast...scratch and dent sale so it's RnB. Asok aluminum RF stalk.
    Chest armor, Shoulders, Thigh Armor, Foot armor - BKBT gelcoat w/ RnB
    Knees - BKBT/Cruzer CC (the brand new ones) with aluminum Dark-Side darts
    Shins - Cruzer CC
    Backplate - Cruzer gelcoat w/ RnB
    Jetpack - MOW w/ Serenity beacon and stabilizer
    Flight Suit - made by my wife with very accurate material from LA fashion district.
    Vest - Leather, made by Ladysewforus
    Gauntlets - Fettpride Cold Cast with Dark-Side aluminum parts
    Ammo belt - Me
    Girth Belt - Cruzer's Bolo, assembled by me
    Holsters - Cruzer, dyed by me
    Gloves - Nordstrom Rack
    Blasters - MR
    Shoes - GBX, accurate sole

    Special, special, uber thanks goes out to Cruzer for bailing me out at the last minute and going above and beyond to provide me with holsters, shins and knees in time for comic-con!

    WOW!

    Very impressed!

    Question: how well does the CC match the RnB in person?

    Did I mention 'WOW!'

    Thanks for all the compliments guys!!!

    @LSFU - Shiruba of Seattle

    @SEEKER - I don't think anyone's flightsuit is as purple as yours! J/K I used to be anti-purple Jango, but my opinion has changed in the last few years after seeing it at FIDM.

    @CaptJono - The RnB and CC match very well in person. You can't really tell the difference without studying them very closely. There are two minor differences. The RnB is a little more reflective than the CC and the RnB is not as consistent of a finish as the CC, but some of that has to do with me and not the actual RnB. Otherwise, it's pretty indistinguishable as long as you use the Mother's aluminum polish on the CC. CC that's only been steel wooled does not match that well.

    More about the flightsuit...it's brushed linen and here are a couple of pics taken with two different cameras showing the color different from above. The first pic was taken by Craig "Jango 5204" and the second was taken by Liz Hyde of OCSWS/RL.

    Thanks!

    Since I'm in the repairs/alterations/upgrades stage, anyone have any tips on removing the orange from the barrel of the MR's? I think I remember hearing that it was a plug you could remove if you took them apart. I know others have painted the barrels. I don't like the bright orange coming from the barrels in my pics.

    Yeah I took those plugs out of mine as well. There is a small allen screw on the bottom of the barrell. Unscrew that and you should be able to unscrew the tip off. The brass tube is actually what you are unscrewing from the back of the gun. The whole brass tube and tip will come off. Now you can slide the tip back down the tube a little to reveal the flared brass piece that you need to unscrew. You have to push the plugs out from the inside out. They have a rubber o-ring that holds them in place. I hope that helps.

    That helps a ton, thanks! I was afraid to take them apart without confirmation that it could be done successfully.

    I just took mine apart again to make sure I was relaying it correctly. That is how I did it and it is pretty easy to do. Nice Jango by the way.

    I can't seem to unscrew the tip from mine. My hands hurt.

    Is it the brass tip screwed onto the brass tube that you can't get undone? If so you could always just find something to stick all the way through the brass tube to push the barrell plug out.

    That brass tube goes the entire length of the gun. It's threaded to the back knurled part and the front barrel tip. Grab the back and the brass front and unscrew. Here's a pic. Once it's spearted you can push out the plug from the back of the brass tip and paint it black if you want.

    Thanks for all of your help. I can unscrew the little screw on the bottom, but I can't get past that. My hands are torn up from trying to unscrew the tip. For some reason I ended with a pair of MR's that were so well put together they can't be unscrewed. I wreck some jar openers trying to unscrew them.

    both set screws stay in the gun. The one in the front holds on the tip, the one in the back holds the tube in to the rear portion. your pressure points to get this apart is the gold ring in front, and the grip portion on the back of the barrel. When you pull it apart, the big tip stays on the gun. Then, if you want to remove that tip, you loosen that set screw. Make sure you're gripping just the gold ring at the front.
