Nice, this should be a cool build
First test pulls going on now. Should have some more info once tests are set up and polished up with steel wool.
Should know the best color after a day or so, so the rest of the armor can follow. Having a little help from a friend on this....
Now if I can figure out how to attach a picture.....what a noob.
did you make your own armor?
I wish! Love working with fiberglass but no, that's Cruz....
Unclear... Are you doing Jango's armor as seen inside that issue... or Jaster's as seen on the cover in your first post?
Great work bro, do you make that chest ammo?, is fiber glass right? amazing
Need to change the pic. Will update this weekend. Cruzer is making the armor, but in color experiment currently. Will be going with the #3 cover picture for the overall concept. Will have the color tiles Friday to buff up and see which color works best for the coldcast layer.
@Peregrinas- yup, hadn't read the comics at that time, and didn't realize that was Jaster on the cover of #1. Pretty similar overall though. Want the armor a little darker, same leather goods. No Red on the shoulders or gauntlets. Really dig the grey and red on the helmet....
Ahh... Yeah, I like Jaster. I keep hoping someone will do Jango's armor in the Protector color scheme he had in issue #2... You got my hopes up, there.
Got a picture of it?
That would be a cool build!
That will be great! I'm completely apt to alter what I'm doing for sure, so the title may change. It will be coldcast armor/helmet though....as well as the proper leather goods and twin blasters. Colors of the FS and helmet paint may change at a moments notice....Hope to have an update in 2-3 weeks.
Make sure to keep us posted. I want to see how this all turns out.
Will do. I'll have to change the title though, as it's morphed into an AOTC Jango.....
working on gauntlets now. I'll put up some pics soon.

Got the keyholes chaindrilled and filed out, then the visor cut and cleaned up. Started polishing, but think it needs some more.....

Gauntlets pretty much wrapped up except the hoses. Got a bare jetpack and still have to make some stops for the door, as well as figure out how to attach the hooks.
Any thoughts on the helmet? Keep going with 0000 steel wool?
So here's the shameless selfie to see the lid on my head! Went into town and forgot the **** steel wool to buff it out more, but I did get the visor trimmed and drilled out. Helmet is ready to glue in the brad hole T nuts for the visor then prep for paint. Ear pieces are located and drilled out, ready to primer.....
That is looking really good!!! I'll have to start my own thread when I finally start piecing together my Jango! I am definitely loving Jango's Protector armor color scheme!!!
And....I have the first casualty of the costume this year. Visor ready to use to position T nuts for gluing, super glue acts up....and wind up putting drop on a piece of paper. 10 minutes later I sit the visor on the same said piece of paper.....And its longer work life CA glue. Guess it will serve as a template for the next one, SOAB!
Gotcha! It's now ready to begin paint...
