    Feb 26, 2012, 12:24 AM - My Jango #1

    Well, I never did a build thread, I can never keep up with pics.. But here is my first troop attempt in my "completed" Jango. I know there are some things wrong, but I'll let y'all point them out so I can see what is the most noticeable.




    Component List (its been a year, so this is the best i can remember!)
    from head to toe:

    Helmet - Asok Cold Cast. Painted by SaintNasty
    All other armor pieces - Cruzer cold cast. Buffed and weathered by me
    Jumpsuit - Cucblack. Dyed, undyed, and re dyed, by me.
    Gauntlets - Cruzer. Assembled by Cruzer
    Missile and Metal bits - Dark_Side
    Gloves - Amazon
    Vest - LSFU (faux leather)

    Girth, Ammo belt, holsters - made by MPFilmcraft. The girth off so i disassembled everything and re-made it.

    Westars - Master Replicas
    Boots - GBX
    Jetpack - MOW stubby, painted by Woody
    Jetpack harness - Seeker's awesome V3 vest


    I would like to publicly thank Seeker for all his help and for answering all my stupid questions. Not sure how i would have finished without your guidance. Thanks bro.

    Things to fix / complete:
    Swap thighs (cause aparently they are on the wrong legs!! (thanks mureel)
    Raise thighs/holster assembly about an inch.
    Trim the wings off my Cod (lol that sounds hilarious)
    Dye my balaclava so it isnt SUPER BLUE lol.
    Sew balaclava to a shirt so it doesn't ride up.
    Sew clip into sleep for hoses.
    Suggestions?

    Honestly man, everything looks really, really amazing. I know it isn't that big of a deal, but I trimmed the "wings" of my cod piece off. That's the only thing I notice in the pics.

    Thanks brother, I will probably trim them too, I like the look of it without.

    lookin good. I would move your thighs and holsters up a bit, just adjust the straps. That and the cod piece are really the only things I can tell in those pics,

    Overall it looke nice.

    well I noticed something else. Your thigh armor is on the wrong legs......you have the right and left switched. The scoop out section goes to the outside and the rounded top edge goes to the inside.

    But the kit looks good, and you wear it well. You should give a full list of your build up so the new guys can see whats what.

    Oh ****.. Really?? I'm used to every other piece of armor going curve side in so it avoids the cod.. since those holes were drilled in the thighs, If I can't just swap and keep same holes, I may just keep it. Thanks for the kind words, I'll do an item list tomorrow.

    Wow, looks great! I did notice you were wearing your jetpack upside down. (Joking, I can't see any real faults)

    Also, really nice shine on the helmet. Coldcast? Where did you obtain the helmet from?

    Yeah if you drilled the thighs it shouldn't be that big of an issue to switch them. Look really close at the gallery pics and just line everything up with them.

    I have always thought the thighs and the shins seemed backwards. I have my holsters attached also, but until I did that I wrote right and left on the back of them with a sharpie. Same with the shins. And I have still found myself putting my shins on the wrong legs at a troop.....lol

    It looks awesome! I noticed something, but it could be the angle of the pic: does your helmet have a bit of a "pinch" towards the bottom of the visor/T? Like I said, it could just be the angle. CONGRATULATIONS on the finish!!

    LOL... I am sensing a bathroom theme in your pictures. Could just be me though.

    Looks great man! I can not wait for mine to be finished, and I hope it looks as good.

    So I forgot to mention, on this first troop, my right knee broke cleanly where the side was jb welded (obviously not that well). My problem is that my right knee is kind of jacked up physically and bends a bit differently than normal persons, so it puts a lot of pressure on the knee armor because it's tight on the knee. Any suggestions on making it a tad wider?
