    My Bobamaker Jango Fett helmet paint up by Bobby Fett UK

    Hi all,

    I got myself a Jango Fett cold casted helmet a few weeks ago off Bobamker.



    I have passed it onto Bobby Fett UK which he has kindly accepted a long with many of his other jobs he is soo busy with.

    Thanks Booby Fett UK for taking on this project. Look forward to the updates soon.

    The ball is in your court!

    I used silver, but I've seen other's with black. I think it's really a personal preference, but from reference I've seen, it's been silver mesh

    Yes! I've too considered getting one myself. I can't get over the fact that its a screencast. I've fallen in love with the helmet, so to have one of these (FP or BM) it's a great collector's piece

    any pics or updates on this lid? I am looking at one of the cold cast ones myself but do not think I should start out with an expensive one to mess up!!!

    I suggest going with a Asok CC... they are very affordable and screen cast (much like the BM CC) and if you mess it up you are not out the money for an expensive lid.

    Sorry did not mean to thread-jack this thread

    Yeah that's why I'm also having Daz do the painting on mine. Hope to have it by end of Oct. or early Nov. His items are by far the best & worth the extra money.

    asok is a member of these boards. he's a really great guy to work with, and comes through with a quality product. his helmet is descended from a screen used "hero" helmet, and when it's finished up it's super pretty.

    here's the thread to my own personal asok jango helmet: http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showthread.php?t=32845

    and here's one on the build-up i'm doing for another members asok jango: http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showthread.php?t=34349

    i sent a few pm's back and forth with him a few days ago, he said he was going to pour a few more starting this week. so you can send him a pm is you'd like to jump on it.

    I have got round to making a start on this for Phil.

    Now, I want to gauge opinions on the colours, they look different in almost all the photos I look at due to lighting etc, so I figure you Jango experts can point me in the right direction.

    Here is a test shot of the colours (over a spare Boba lid)





    Now I know it is rough, but we are only looking at the way the two blues work together.

    All comments welcome.

    Rob.

    Are the cheeks and sides different shade of blue?

    I assume the two blue tones are different. The front looks ok, maybe the cheeks bit more.

    Anyone with advice on this?

    Can't wait for this to be done.

    Yes Phil, if you look at the over spray on the ear section you can see the two colours side by side.

    It looks close, but no cigar yet. I think the cheeks need to be the same blue as the mandibles but a few shades darker.

    Any comments for Phil on this Jangos?

    Nice spare lid ya got there...
    Colours look pretty good! but I'm no Jango expert and I'm sure some other Jango seniors can chime in to help.
    Nice kit Phil, gonna look sharp once done!

    I think the contrast is a little too much and the light blue is a little too light.

    Yea, I think that the light blue should be darker, and that the inner cheeks should be slightly darker...what paints are you using?
