    Dynamic - Actually, no. It wasn't. Cruzer has a phenomenal thread on completing the Hinge and Pin system with great step-by-step instructions. I HIGHLY recommend bookmarking it and referencing it when you're ready to work on yours. Here's the link: http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f28/c...intense-25280/

    Thanks!

    PS: My helmet WITH INSTALLED CHIN SKIRT was shipped today from Chucko! WooHoo!!

    I did a VERY QUICK side project that didn't require a significant amount of time (which I have not had) or significantly great weather (which we have not had). Since my ASOK Helmet was completely polished, painted, etc. by me, I take a lot of pride in it. So, I figured until I can get a decent mannequin (one that WON'T fall down face first at 3am busting my helmet), I want to display it on a stand close to my MR Vader. After some suggestions her on TDH (you guys are ALWAYS awesome) I picked up a wood upright paper towel dispenser, and......voila!

    I wasn't sure whether I wanted the Mandalorian emblem or an Imperial emblem (since Jango IS the father of our beloved Stormtroopers). I obviously opted for the former. I've ordered a table that sits about 42" high that I'm going to antique with some Rust-oleum Royal Blue, since the base is the Ocean Blue. The Mandalorian emblem is just a sharpie marker, so I will paint it in the next couple of days. I'm also going to have a display plaque made that will attach upright at the front.

    Thoughts???

    Wanted to give a quick update, as well as share a "find" for all of you with li'l Fetts...

    I just acquired a BobaMaker Flight Suit from someone here on TDH and it should hopefully arrive by the end of next week. That just leaves me with a vest to locate/purchase/sew/construct.....whatEVER; paint my jet pack, and finish my resin Westars. I'm ALMOST THERE!!!

    Now, for you mommy and daddy Fetts out there....

    We were out at our local NORDSTROM and look what I found in the KID'S SHOES dept:

    How AWESOME are those!! When you walk, the visors light up (blue for Rex and red for Boba). The three figures in the last pic are snap-ons for CROCS. Anyhow, I thought you all, if ANYone, would appreciate these. Until later....

    CIAO!!

    I love those shoes. I would love to get a pair for my 2 1/2 year old, but my wife dresses him in all matching outfits all the time so he would never get to wear them.

    At the NORDSTROM website, they also have Vader and basic Clone Wars!!

    Hey there Brothers & Siters! An exciting update....

    I just received an AWESOME Bobamaker Flightsuit from Mullreel. I will have to have it altered just a bit, but nothing major. I am now just a VEST away from a completed, not finished (do we ever really "finish" these things?) Jango. WooHoo!!! Here is the FS...

    hmmmmm. Something's up with the File Manager. I'll get them posted after a while.

    I do have a couple of questions for any Jangos that have a Bobamaker Flightsuit:

    1. The Second Sleeve is hemmed low and only gives about a 1.5" flap/cover. How/where do you run the gauntlet hoses? Do you cut an opening and run them inside?
    2. Coloring: Do you fade it then hit it with some purple, or just at the purple to its current color?
    3. Doe the Bobamaker have a little bit wider neck opening?

    I'll get the pics posted soon. Any input on my questions would be greatly appreciated!!
  10. Jun 5, 2011, 11:48 PM - Re: Jango: My First "REAL" Build #85

    So, I met up with Dynamic1 last night at Hollywood Bowl for Star Wars in Concert (AWESOME!!!); and after some rejuvenation, as well as some friendly (???) shaming from Dynamic, I decided to bite the bullet and attack my Arena Jet Pack! I got it all taped off; even using "the oooold toothpaste-as=liquid-mask trick" in some smaller detailed areas. Now, here's where I have to apologize to all of the "purists:" I know that the recommended darker blue is the Krylon Regal Blue Gloss. With that being said, I think most of you will join me in sating that Krylon rattle cans are HORRID!!! They spatter, run, take more than usual coats to cover, and they just don't "play well with other" brands. So, I had to stray just a bit. I went with some Rustoleum Painter's Touch Ultra Cover GLOSS Navy Blue. It's just a tad-bit darker, but it covers in just about two coats; and has a GREAT nozzle. Again, I apologize to the "purists" out there, but I had to take my sanity into consideration. Here are some pics of where I'm at...

    Tomorrow I'll tape off the dark blue and add the Rustoleum Satin Slate Blue. After that, remove the taping then RandB it.

    As always, input is greatly appreciated!!

    I think I did the same navy and then went back over it with Rustoleum accents midnight blue. I will have to look at the can tomorrow and see.

    I have a can on the krylon regal blue but I never even tried it. It is still on the shelf out in the workshop.

    Nice work! Painting the jetpack is always, er...*fun*? Which is easier, arena or Kamino? Ha I used so much tape on mine. Yours is going to look awesome!!!
  14. Jun 7, 2011, 2:09 PM - Re: Jango: My First "REAL" Build #89

    Well, I busted this out in just two days; about a total of 8 hours (not including the original prime & prep I did about a month ago). The thrusters, Exhaust Vent and Adjustment Bolts are still drying (hence the green tape & the 'flipped' pic), but what are your thoughts?? It obviously still needs to be weathered. Oh yeah, please remember that this is a MoW V1 "Stubby," so there might be some small physical discrepencies. Anyhow, as always.....input is greatly appreciated!!

    I was supposed to post a couple of pics of my BOBAMAKER Flight Suit a week or so ago and completely dropped the ball. Here it is:

    I haven't seen a LSFU Flight Suit in person, but I can most definitely attest to the quality of BOBAMAKERS! The material looks nice and heavy, but seems to breathe like a light weight cotton. It totally looks like mechanic's coveralls!! The zippers and other seams are fantastic (straight sewing lines and even hems) and strong. The waist adjustment (elastic and buttons) is awesome! Unfortunately this was tailored to someone else's measurements, but close enough to mine that it was a FANTASTIC purchase (thanks Mullreel!). It will need to be hemmed a bit and taken up in the inseam. Also, obviously, I will be adding the purple tint to it.

    My question to you is: Do I cut holes in the double sleeve, since the hem only allows about a 2" overlay?? Thanks in advance for the input!!
