Hi gang Trav here AKA (TK-3623)
Been into scratch building for about 2 years now, Done some TK projects and stuff and thought I'd move onto a Jango Fett as out Garrison does not yet have one.
I'm a Fitter and Machinist by trade, so I mainly work with metal. One great reason to tackle a JF!
So here's what I have done so far on the build.
Here is a site with some great pics of the Master Replicas Westers I've been using as reference along with the wonderful Templates supplied by Wizard of Flight (I love you)
This was my first test piece for Item #1
after I realized I could get the effect I needed I went ahead and remade it better
Here is the item with the holes drilled only
And then machined back to reveal the grooves
The main shaft for Item #2
and the slip ring I machined and marked out
Grooves cut and filed, then polished
Next I started working on the Barrel, I've since filed out the slots.
