    Jango72s progress thread.

    I figured that it was about time that I started one of these threads for my own progress, so here goes...

    On Friday, stellardude and Vaderfanforever1922 came over to my place for a prop session. We chatted alot, but some how still got some work done.

    At the end of the day, stellardude asked me to suit up in my "in progress" suit so he could snap a few pictures. Here's a couple of the pictures he took.

    I know that in this first picture my holsters and girthbelt are too high, I didn't pay all that much attention when I threw on my gear.






    Since those pictures were taken, I finished off my gauntlets ( save for re applying the paint ), so here's a pic of them.



    Lots still to do so, I'm off to work some more on my jet pack. Additional progress pictures will be added as I go, seeing as my finish deadline is the 26th of April.

    LOPERO, I'm going with the classic style ( Kamino ) jet pack. I'm not really partial to the stubby.

    Thanks for the feedback guys, I still have a lot of work to do before my April 27th troop. I'd better get back to work now... I'll try to remember to post more pictures as I go.

    If you go into the helmet section, open up your search function and type in "Wizardofflight helmet template". I simply used the Boba template and modified it to be more Jango accurate.

    Okay... a few more things to post up on my progress.

    1. jet pack is ready for paint.


    2. chest armor is ready for rub-n-buff. ( now primered, but not in picture )


    3. cod piece is ready for rub-n-buff. ( also primered now, but not in picture )



    I'm doing my best to finish off the rest of the armor, so I'd best get going.

    Yup, it sure is.

    It's all primered up grey now, but I'll have to wait until the morning to finish painting it up as I've lost my daylight.

    I've got my armor all rub-n-buffed now though.

    While I'm taking a short break from my build, I thought that I'd throw up this little teaser.



    More to come...

    I've still got a ton of work to do to finalize and tweek/repair my costume, but it didn't stop me from trooping yesterday with my local squad, the Canadian Garrison Capitol City Squad.

    We were out trooping a 3km walk for Multiple Sclerosis, and it was an awesome day!! I've included a group shot below.

    Re: Jango72s progress thread.

    Well, yesterday was my second troop with the Capital City Squad. We were at three different locations around Ottawa for "Free Comic Book Day".

    I'm happy to report that I got my jet pack all weathered and clear coated in time.





    Here's a few of the many pictures that were taken yesterday. I can safely state that I've got quite a bit of tweeking and adjusting to do, and I feel that my shin armor will need to be re-made. Any ways, on to the pictures...





    The two younglings in this next pic are mine.



    The only thing that was missing was my ammo belt and pouches as they got stuck at customs. I should get them some time this week, so I'll have them in plenty of time for my next troop.

    Re: Jango72s progress thread.

    Thought that I'd take a quick second or two to post up a list of my parts and makers, seeing as that seems to be the growing trend.

    Jumpsuit - bought from JROCK, source unknown
    Vest - custom made by co-worker
    Boots - Journeys GBX, picked up for me by satxer ( thanks again man )
    Girthbelt - JDFett, made in collaboration with Cruzer
    Holster rig - Cruzer
    Ammo belt - SEEKER
    Blasters - resin kit bought second hand from a TDH member ( required major tear-down and work to get to current state )
    All armor parts - Jango72
    Jet pack - Jango72
    Gauntlets - Jango72 ( switches, toggles, lights, flame thrower nozzles and left wrist rocket from Cruzer )
    Knee dart launchers - Asok
    Gloves - Walmart specials ( made by HotPaws )
    Helmet - Jango72 ( all armor, jet pack, gauntlets and helmet were made using WoF Boba templates. I altered/adjusted them during construction to be more Jango accurate. )

    I've still got a few repairs and tweeks to complete after my last troop, so I'll do my best to post up new pictures once they're completed.

    Re: Jango72s progress thread.

    Thanks for the kind words guys.

    I'll be getting my wife to pin the legs and butt on the suit a little, to get rid of some of the excess baggyness.

    Aside from that... I've got to re-do some of my leg straps ( lesson learned while actually trooping ), then throw together a back plate and I'll be ready to take my submittance photos.

    Re: Jango72s progress thread.

    Well, I sent off my photos for approval yesterday. I've still got the baggy issue with my jumpsuit, but I figure that I can work with it until I can get one properly tailored for me.

    I'm still waiting on a few more bits, like my beacon and stabilizer, but I figured that I had enough to submit... in truth, I just was way too excited and really wanted to start the process to get my BH number. ( my fellow squad mates told me to submit without the back plate too, as the majority of people out there wouldn't even notice it missing. )

    Hope you get your BH number, Looks good!
