    Nice job Mike and very sorry to hear about your nan.
    Don't give up on your Fett. It will come to be soon enough. I'm still working on mine;-)

    Sorry to hear about your loss bro.

    The knees are looking good. If you're not completely satisfied with them, try adding a little bondo to give them curves, shape, etc. It's like playing with mud except that it dries really really quickly, and you can sand on it once it's dry. I handmade my first set of knees in a similar fashion as yours.

    Keep up the good work. It's a nice tribute to your nan already.

    If you can find wizardoflight's Jango Knee Blueprints it could help finish of the curves and stuff.

    looks pretty good for the first one. It's true with what TK-938 said about wizardoflight. Wish those plans were around during the beginning.

    First things to consider when looking at buckets are how much $$ do you have to spend and how tall are you? Different buckets for different pocket sizes and body sizes.

    I have a BKBT (bigkidsbiggertoys) Jango and love it. My head is 7 3/4 inches and it fits.

    Sorry for your loss.


    Why not post a pic of the Vader. I'd like to see it because that was my 1st stand-up I wanted to make, but I went with Boba instead.
