    Jango Fett AOTC

    In process of beginning a Jango Open Seasons 3 build thread here. Intend to have it totally complete for Dragoncon 2014.
    Cruzer still experimenting to get the best color coldcast.
    FS/Flak Jacket/Seal are ordered from LadyGhost, and should be in sometime in January.

    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.

    More trials....waiting for the blue only to harden. Big difference a little steel wool can make, and no barney in sight!

    I think all blue is going to be the ticket here.

    Unclear... Are you doing Jango's armor as seen inside that issue... or Jaster's as seen on the cover in your first post?

    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....

    Re: Jango Fett Open Seasons #3

    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.

    Re: Jango Fett Open Seasons #3

    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.

    Jango AOTC

    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.

    photo-1-jpgphoto-2-jpgphoto5-jpgGot the keyholes chaindrilled and filed out, then the visor cut and cleaned up. Started polishing, but think it needs some more.....

    photo-3-jpgjetpack-jpgGauntlets 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.

    photo8-jpg 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!!!

    Re: Jango Fett AOTC

    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!

    No, the polyester cc is not like casting resin cc. The more you abrase the surface, the darker it will get. Remember, the surface of the original suit was not super shiny. If you want a highly polished surface, you have to use a metalized polish like Rn'B.
