    Re: My Jango 1.0 build-up Countdown to EP III (pic-heavy!)

    Thank you for your appreciation. It's always encouraging, especially when not everything turns out as planned.

    However...
    Good news everyone!:
    The technique of Rednave worked pretty well on my knee armor.
    I also used the same method on the PVC shoearmor to fit them perfectly to the new shoes. The PVC gets bendable like a piece of thick rubber after one minute in the oven and can be formed exactly into the shape beneath.

    Wouldn't it be for the burned skin that technique would be great to shape a roman centurions chest/belly armor piece (of course only if you have a sixpack-muscles shape )...

    And as I hadn't got the time for some further progress with some pics, how about this new developed dart-armed shoe armor?
    Well, I guess, if you're unlucky while firing those darts, you'll hit some vital parts of yourself.

    Wow, you're costume is coming along very nicely, very quickly! I look forward to seeing the finished product!

    You said that your knee dart's bands are permanently glued? Does this mean you have to wear them outside your pants? I know it seems like a dumb, obvious question, but I'm curious if this is your intention.

    8 days and NO PRESSURE??? wahahaha
    just kidding. I'm not sure about the jet pack, but finally I have all the materials and parts to finish my Jango.
    Although nothing is "really" finished yet, I think it should work out.

    @ Skalen Fehl: Jep, they are originally intended to be worn above the suit. But as I'm already infected with that suspicous Seeker-virus, I will cut the band and sew a clip-closure to them and will wear them through a hole under the suit.

    just as life sign, that I'm still around.

    4 days left and still an awful lot of work to do.

    The last few days weren't very productive. Tried to glue on the Visor, but it didn't worked well, so I have to do it again (I'm hoping that my nightmare won't come true ). The straps for the shoearmor I attached with glassfibre filler, but unfortunatly I didn't use enough hardener to reach the critical point of kicking off the hardening process... so another thing to do twice.

    However I finished finally he tholsters and the boots and found the cardboard mainbody for the jet pack.

    Tomorrow will be a busy day, with hopefully more things finished and new pics for you to see.

    The helmet comes from a recaster called chris hull,who used to work under the name of 'ozprops' until he got banned from ebay for not delivering,but now selling thru a pal of his called 'dakamOz".
    It's a 'filled in' recast of an altmann's.
    And,i know what you mean about the ears.............

    pm me for more details,if you like,although,i suspect it's a little too late.

    Re: My Jango 1.0 build-up Countdown to EP III (pic-heavy!)

    Sorry no time for pics, but tomorrow you'll get some, I promise.
    As for the progress:
    Holster attached to the Rope belt and filled with blasters.
    Kneearmor straps modified with a clip-closure, and darts attached and filled.
    Shoearmor straps attached and glassfibred.
    Half of the T-Visor carefully hotglued into the helmet (man, that's a painstackingly slow process!).
    Some minor progress on the jet pack.

    That's it for now.

    By the way, thanx guys. I'm happy you like the vest. But much of the credit ows my mother as she did all the sewing.

    ..if hotglue fails, u could try to screw it on the helmet. CAREFULLY !!! and sand up the peaks.

    but it isn't a good idea to do that after the paintjob....

    here is a pic of my visor.

    Re: My Jango 1.0 build-up Countdown to EP III (pic-heavy!)

    Thanx Francis. But I already hotglued it on.
    Today was a bussy one. Most time spent on the helmet:
    Visor finished, chrom painted, helmet patting to fit my head installed, keyhole grit attached (I like the grit version most, although it might not be screen-accurate), RF screwed on, earcap on RF glued on, pinstripes added, and attached the velcro for the leather gasket (not finished yet).
    Will do weathering tonight as well as for the knee armor and the gauntlets.

    Attached also all the velcro on the armor pieces and the vest.

    A lot of work went also into the overall, for which I'm very grateful to my gf as she still sits right now on it, sewing.

    As I can't do anything Tuesday, tomorrow is the final day for big stuff, so it's very doughtful that the jet pack will be finished in time, although I decided, that if I can finish the building of it I will prime it with one overall coat of black and then silver and will wear it in silver for the premiere, as finishing the right paintjob just takes too much time.

    Hopefully more pics tomorrow for you.

    just a second post before going to sleep...

    Thanx fellows. I can't say it often enough, it's really great to read all your encouraging responses after a hard day of work on my Jango.

    After working deep into the night (night it's 5am in the morning now! ), I finally finished my helmet including the weathering (which gracefully covered some paintjob flaws as well ).
    Many thanx to all the gals and guys who's knowledge in this forum helped and inspired me, especially BKBT and Francis.

    also almost finished the Overall and the armor attached to the vest (many kisses to my gf for both) and the weathering of the gauntlets and the knee armor.

    Enjoy the pics (although the quality is bad as usual ).
    Good Night/Morning/whatever...

    PS: Marc, of course the Referance CD helped really a lot! I'm sorry I hadn't much time for ICQ lately. Anyway: THANX! you're great! :thumbup

    Re: My Jango 1.0 build-up Countdown to EP III (pic-heavy!)

    TAATAAA!!
    I actually finished my Jango 1.0 today!
    Although the jet pack will not be finished till EIII, I reached the goal of this countdown, as a jet pack wasn't originally intended for my 1.0, but was added after I saw raptorarts.
    I'm sorry if you have to wait a while longer before you get to see it, but I want to post some high quality pics of the complete Jango instead of the campics.
    Also more details on the final costume, I will tell you later. As I have some familybusiness to attend till the premiere.

    But as a small comfort for my TDHers, a shot from the jet pack in progress for you, just to show, why it takes so long and that I'm really determined to do the most screen-accurate cardboard/papermache jet pack up to date.

    Thank you all for all the help, encouragements and interest.

    FINALLY!!! I got the pictures!

    Actually it was the first time I could see my Jango in his full glory myself.

    To honor your patience and your encouragement throughout the countdown, now you finally get a bunch of pics of the finished Jango 1.0.
    Hope you'll enjoy them.

    PS: a couple more from the E3 premiere in the Sarlacc Pit.
