  1. Aug 17, 2008, 6:48 AM - Maldorian Guards Jango Progress #1

    Hi all,

    With thanks to ThxsDad for encouragement to put my gear on here. Thought I best show my Jango update.

    Would like to Thank my girlfreind, RunJedirun, Mojo-Fett,OrtharRrith, Bobby Fett, Bobamaker, Spacescopie, Asok, ThxsDad and my cousin Bobatrooper for your support in making my gear. Helping source parts and putting me in the right direction.

    Thanks to others for comments. Thanks to Cruzer and Seeker making my parts and putting up with my PM's. Can't wait to get my leather parts off them.

    My gloves, which I got form Amazon.com



    My gauntlets thanks to Spacescopie,



    My flightsuit from Bobamaker,


    My leather vest, with front armour plates velcro'd to it. From Bobamaker.


    My helmet thanks to my cousin Bobatrooper. For Rub & Buffing. (Don't know if he made the helmet from scratch or bought it built).


    My guns thanks to my cousin again Bobatrooper for painting and putting together. Don't know where this was sourced from, was bought a long time ago.


    Hope to receive parts form Reinone over boots, Seeker for ammo belt and Cruzer for gun holster. I can't wait.

    Need dirtying my Jeptack, more detail adding to my guns, more detail adding to the guants. Need a rangefinder to my helmet. Need to connect my hoses form my gauntlets to my flightsuit.

    Rest parts I need are backplate, lower armour pieces. Voice changer.

    Thanks again for peoples support. Still alot more to do though.

    BM Armor is the same size as BKBT armor. They both have close ties to screen cast armor.

    BobaFettSlave_1 - I'm about 5ft 10". I have worn all the BM parts so far, thought it was good. Haven't done a full picture though. (Will do some time). Will wait till when I get parts off Cruzer and Seeker. BM makes the Jango armour from cold cast, which is great. What BTW?

    Thanks guys for your thoughts, real confidence boost

    "My leather vest, with front armour plates velcro'd to it. From Bobamaker"

    If have BM also, need to put it together stuill.
    How and where did you put the velcro on the armor and vest? Is the velcro strong and lasting enough after wearing it for several times?

    I was planning to go with the snaps attachement, but if velcro works....

    Laar0406 - Is your armour BM? I went to my local fabric store and asked for industrial velcro to be fitted to my armour and vest. Sent you a PM.

    Katua Fett - I hope to be taking pics this weekend. If not soon. Doing some late nights at work at the moment. My flightsuit, vest dirtied a bit, need to find a way to dirty my Jet Pack a bit. It needs to be altered for trooping.

    Thanks Mike for the support, sure will send you some PM's.

    Got 2 saber darts the other day from RBreplicas.


    Got my bolo samples aswell to.

    From left to right, natural and brown bolo at 5mm, then natural and brown bolo at 6mm. Both being 4-ply. Which bolo you think best guys?

    I got the samples from www.bfnt.co.uk. Since I live in the UK.

    Got my gun holsters on Friday 19/9/08. Big Thanks to Cruzer for putting up my constant PM's. Love the gun holster and fits perfectly. Here it is with Seekers ammo belt.



    Thought I put it on my flightsuit to.


    Got some leather scraps over a month ago. I had to get it cut to look tidy. The belt a width of 9" (plenty) and the waist is well plenty to fit around me.




    Just need to put my flightsuit, flak vest and gun holster to get the right dimensions on my girth belt. When I know that I can do my calculations and get ordering bolo, leather glue (cement) etc.

    Starting to really come together now Phill... the leather looks ok but maybe a little 'thin'?
  21. Sep 21, 2008, 6:27 AM - Re: Maldorian Guards Jango Progress #21

    The leather will thicken with the bolo being attached anyway, so think should be ok.
    It 2mm thick or 1/20".

    The leather backing piece is perfect. The thinner the better, because it will make your girthbelt a little more flexible, and therefore more comfortable when wearing. I use 2-3oz (1-2mm thick) tanned hide leather on my girthbelts. Plus, the screen used girthbelt uses a 2-3oz tanned hide leather backing.

    Glad the hoslters work for you. Good job bro!

    Yea, it looks good to me. When you get that bolo on it, it will stiffen it up a bit. I just use a thicker leather cause its that or paper thin leather. Yours should be good to go. Can't wait to see the final result Phill.
  24. Sep 21, 2008, 3:26 PM - Re: Maldorian Guards Jango Progress #24

    Thanks Cruzer and thxsdad. I put most my gear on before and had 6.5" form bottom armour to top of holster metal-ish piece. Didn't get round to taken a pic though.

    Your chart for the girth belt helps out alot Cruzer. Think need to order bolo and parts. Would like to double check though on getting a decent cod piece though.
