Hi guys ive been building this for a while now doing bit and pieces when i have time and money ive always loved the jango fett character but cant afford all the amazing gear available for you guys on this site so im having a go at build my own from scratch using templates from here this is what ive got so far
ok first of all and i know i know i got a cheap rubies and a cheap set of gauntlets from ebay i know there not right but they will do for now, The gauntlets was in rough kit form ive put them together and painted and weathered them and added some lights
then i got hold of some pvc plastic signs from work and started making the armor pieces from it it cut really easy and bends well when heated painted them up and weathered them heres what ive go so far
ok i brought some leather look material in black and brown and made the holster rig and ammo belt and vest out of it and attached the armor i also made a sash from hessian rope glued to some material which i think turned out ok i just need to find a way the weather the leather look material i might try a bit of dry brushing im not sure yet.
ok ive made my jetpack from foam using a pep file its made it really light and i should be able to attach it with magnets here the jetpack build and file

ok so i put my jango suit on my duck tape dummy today and standing back looking at it i think my rubies helmet is just not going to cut it because of my big body frame it just looks to small so im going to build my own i think im going to pep it out and resin it so today i started work on the rangefinder i used the same plastic material i used for the armor it glued well with super glue and sanded really well see what you think
I've also made a board for the inside to make a circuit on its going to be self contained with green and red flashing leds on the front and a clear on in the window that will work on a tilt switch so when the rangefinder is down the the lights come on and when it goes up they go off and all run off a small battery self contained inside the rangefinder
