    My current beggining of an open seasons jango fett

    I have been researching this theme for quite some time now and i have noticed something,or rather the lack of something,something important.The compleat lack of Jango Fett Pre Jaster's death OS costumes.Just so you guys know what armor im talking about its this one\/


    So i have decided to fill the gap my self by doing a OS Jango Fett from the battle on Korda 6.I'm really excited about the build because i really like the look of that armor.But i am going to be putting my own little spin on the armor because i will be using westar-34 blaster pistols and a DC-15S blaster carbine because i just like those weapons more then the others.Oh and unfortunately because i don't know how to weather and don't want to risk ruining the costume i will not be weathering it at all.

    And yes i know Jango got the westars when he stole the restaured armor from the Kordan governor and that the DC-15s blaster carbine wasn't manufactured until about the beggining of clone wars,like i said i prefer those weapons they look better to me then others.

    I like your idea until you got to this part. C'mon man, just go all out and go with the actual blasters he uses.

    Actualy after looking at the comic pics a bit better it apears he uses blasters very similar to the westars...as for the blaster gun he uses i really hate guns that are suppose to be like primary weapons and not pistols and just look like a piece of pipe with a handle and a triger so no way on that part...sorry

    Well you could design something original that is based on the open seasons blaster. Or don't use a blaster like that at all. I'm just saying, the DC is going to detract from the costume.

    I'm not really sure it will the DC is a very slick weapon very small and elegant,but il think about it,i might end up using the EE3 i know that was in use at that time cause pirate horde's used it in ishues that depicted times before the mandalorian wars...and i do have an old revolver that i can use for its base.

    Edit:I'm actually now thinking of changing to a different type of blaster pistol because i think it might look a bit more realistic.

    These are the ones im talking about /\ ,but i cant seem to remember their name .

    okay i have been very bussy with my job this week but expect progress pics by the end of this week...

    oh and by the way me and my godbrother will soon be entering the market here with ammo belts,possibly girth belts,not sure yet and very possibly jet packs,we will be targeting the european market but we will be shipping world wide,that is if there seems to be interest in those...honestly i hope there will be because: one the money will almost all go to my sisters college fund...second because we will be making high quality items for a fairly cheap price.
