    I'm not a Jango guy but it looks like this build is comming along nicely. Nice shape to to the homemade metal armor! I once made my own and it was quite a task to slowly shape/ curve it.

    The only thing I can see missing would be the Chin Skirt that goes under the Helmet. You'll be very be happy with the Gauntlets. They are a work of art.

    clonecollector: Yeah I love my steel armor! I actually hammered and bent it to get the shape right. I still need to get the 2 little slots on the one chest piece figured out. I know how I'm going to do it, I just ned to do it. Yeah. Thanks.

    IzzyMel: Ok yeah, how much do those go for? I've seen them on here before, I need to try and find who sells them. Contacts, anyone? Thanks.

    Re: Jango Fett Build

    BTW, I ordered new boots. Randomly found them on ebay. Kenneth Cole reaction boots. Some used pair, for $30, and man oh man do they look great! Can't wait for them to arrive. I'm making new steel armor for the boots. Just cut them out tonight. Going to be great.

    Re: Jango Fett Build

    thats a good (and lucky) find. They should work about as good as you can get without finding some pit crews.

    Re: Jango Fett Build

    Let's see,
    Finishing up attaching all the armor (once the flightsuit arrives)
    Assemble my gauntlets once I receive them from Cruzer!
    Painting of my jetpack.
    Finish up my blasters.
    Paint on my boots (still need to arrive)
    Adjust color on holsters.
    Install helmet gasket (still needs to arrive)
    Weather everything.
    And........that might be it....I think.
    Yeeeeup.

    Re: Jango Fett Build

    Bit of an update:
    Gauntlet darts arrived! Yay!
    Waiting on hearing back about a rocket.
    Waiting on gauntlets from Cruzer.
    Waiting on helmet gasket from Chucko.
    Waiting on my "replacement" jumpsuit to arrive from EVO.
    I did a bit of color work on the holsters and ammo belt. Looking good. My chest armor is all attached, need to attach the backplate. Need to attach the boot armor. Finish up the helmet and blasters. Weather everything. And....can't think of anything else. ;-)

    Re: Jango Fett Build

    Yeah that's for sure. But really, these past 2 weeks or so have been absolutely crazy with school, midterms, family stuff, all kinds of things. Spring break is next week, so I'll be able to knock some stuff out of the way, like finishing painting the jetpack and finalizing my armor and stuff. ;-) Yeah, updates and pics will be up shortly! Thanks

    Update

    I'm going to be attaching the backplate, painting the jetpack, and weathering some of the armor. ;-)
    Boots are pretty much done, except for painting....
    Gasket is on the way. Gauntlets should be soon. As should the jetpack harness. And jumpsuit. My darts came!!! Need a cheap rocket.....

    Jetpack is nearing completion. I will post pics soon. All the colors are on. Now it's just detail work, weathering, decals, etc. ;-) I'm really happy with how it turned out. Man, getting those colours right was a pain! Wow. Haha
