Jango Knee Armour Sculpts

    Jango Knee Armour Sculpts

    Finally started work on Jango Knee Armour. I will be publishing WIP pics as always on my website in the next few days. I'm sculpting each knee in three sections, then joining them before moulding. This means that each knee will be one single cast, no building or glueing. Once moulded I will be selling both plain fibreglass copies and Aluminium Coldcast versions.

    First section is complete, here's where I'm at...

    OK, I've now started a "Work in Progress" page on my website for anyone interested on how I'm sculpting these bobamaker: Jango Knees Project

    I will put updates here on this thread too.

    I sculpted the "outer segment" for the left knee today using an oil-based clay (Chavant). I'm really pleased with how this turned out. Next step is to sculpt the outer segment for the right knee then I can make a mould of both, make a resin cast of each piece and use these on the final sculpts.

    Daz, be sure you get enough curvature at the back of the outer piece.

    Nice job so far Daz!

    Re: Jango Knee Armour Sculpts

    Thanks for the pic. The curve looks less on the clay sculpt because the back needs cutting away. This will make more sense once I have the resin copy cast and trimmed. Mould is finished so I should get the copy made today.

    Thanks again for the info

    Here you go KaanE, the resin copy is made and trimmed. This shot shows the curvature.

    I very much need a new set of knee armor! Looks fantastic so far.

    Re: Jango Knee Armour Sculpts

    The other side's now finished, here's the pair together. Before I can cut the indents into these where the launchers sit, I will need to make the launchers. So this will be the next step...build the launchers.

    Re: Jango Knee Armour Sculpts

    One question Daz, are you going to make two complete knees and then mould them, or just one frontal piece, and glue the sides on each set?

    "Two complete knees". I'm going to sculpt one cetral piece, make a mould of it then cast two resin copies. This will then give me all the pieces needed to construct the knees and mould them as single items, just like my Boba knees.

    Yes, it looks like I'll be able to use a set of these for your order. Not far to go now on this project.
