The pack looks awesome man great job!!!!
The pack looks awesome man great job!!!!
jet pack is done!
looks nice and all, but it's all dirty. you should clean that up before taking it anywhere.
bounty hunters... never with the bathing or the washing.
Looking good man! You have a light in that beacon?
Can't wait to see how your flight suit and vest turn out!
no light yet, comtemplating that one...but probably will put one in for fun even though its not "canon"
Thats a nice and clean thruster vent........Sorry dude I have done nothing but pick on you LOL It looks good but IMHO you should shoot some flat black up in there......
But dude the pack looks great!
..nice job so far
Looking Great JD!!
I actually have a couple areas i want to put a bit more black but im actually waiting for my blalck R&B for a bit of a 3d weathering effect...as far as the exhaust area...i kind went with what was on the reference cd...wasnt much black if any at all in the pack on that disc(hammerhead folder file name jet pack - left bottom 02)
Yeah, the jet pack is actually not very weathered in the exhaust vent on the real thing. Those of us with the heavily darkened exhaust vent are technically inaccurate.
Yes and slotted and light beacons are inaccurate too but they look cool! Ok seriously weathering or no weathering in there it came out really good dude!!
Yeah, I figured if he had the slotted beacon - he might as well have a light!
It's funny, I am taking more creative liscense with Jango than I would ever consider for my Stormtrooper - everything has to be as close to canon as possible with that baby!
It's funny you should say that Tony. I am being as accurate as possible on my Jango. Trying not to take any liberties...except on my jet pack.
i hear that..im trying for as close to possible with jango...after doing my wife's zam i wouldnt settle with anything else...except the cool aluminum beacon..hehe
You know the more I think about it...I guess I am the same way...not sure what I was thinking when I said that Lapse of judgement??? Granted when I think of the flight suit - I feel it should be more blue than purple-ish... Even though it is more on the purple side...well not purple...but you know..
I guess I am just not being as much of a stickler with it as I do with my TK (granted I need another set of TK armor until I am happy with it...) There are always upgrades!!!
JD this bad boy is coming out awesome! I can't wait to see it in person!
HA...neither can i...LOL
had a helmet paint question....i noticed on my gentle giant jango bust that the ears are a third color varioation from the rest of the helmet. is that a mess up on GG part...or does the actual helmet have three different colors. if so or if not whats the color scheme for the ears and range finder
Heres a pic i saved.
It looks like the same colors as the cheeks.
thanks..maybe the shadows give it a bit darker appearence on the cheeks then...
I wouldn't rely on the GG too much. While some of them have great detail they are still an artists recreation - not an exact scaled replica.
For example the ANH Stormtrooper busts, they have great helmet detail, correct grey and blue ab button color - but have a ROTJ E-11 (Canadian Sterling with hammer greeblies on the side).
The only thing I would say about the dark blue is the rustoleum is a touch off the studio helmet looks to have a light touch of green but in darker light it looks spot on.
got my loanstar vest and flightsuit in today...but the neck seal wasn't with the stuff...hopefully i can get him to send it...things always seem to go rough for me when buying costume parts...i just dont get it! LOL
was a bit disappointed when i saw the shoulders of the vest were glued on...i may run a stitch on them through the piping seam as the glue was seperating on arrival.
I was wondering if anyone else who bought this vest did anything to help keep the shoulders down? velcro maybe? or does the weight of the armor keep them from sticking straight out?
Your shoulders actually look to big to me...
And your face is alittle inaccurate...it should look more like this:
