    Phil, your Jango looks amazing man! Just having it next to the cut out, proves it. Fantastic work. Even though its not 100% finished, you deserve a drink

    Haha! I have the same cardboard Jango, I used to work for the company that makes them. I see that its folded in three places, back when i was there it was only across the middle. great progress on your suit by the way.

    Re: My Jango Progress

    any opinions on how to attach the holster belt to the top of the cod? velcro? or something like E6000 adhesive? I'm also curious about the best way to attach the thighs and knees. I was thinking velcro for the thighs.

    I removed the nylon belt from the holster assembly, discarded that, and have 2 screwposts/chicago screws going from the front leather holster tab onto the inside of the girth belt. The two rear most holster supports are attached to the inside of my girth belt with snaps. I also used 2 of those screws to hold the cod to the girth belt maybe 2 inches in from each end on the cod. Place the scews carefully on the girth belt and they will never be seen tucked behind the individual cords.

    The trick but most involved way would be to run a chicago screw through the leather d-ring holder stap and back of the d-ring holder. Position the d-ring holder in the desired place on your cod, outline, and drill a small hole. Then secure the d-ring holder to the cod with the chicago screw. I prefer things to be removable if necessary later on. You can keep the hoslters attached to the cod for storage purposes, and then you can use the webbed belt from the holster assembly to put-on your cod, holsters, and thigh pieces if you attach them to the holsters using the chicago screws from the holsters (another idea from Seeker). Placing the webbed belt from your holster assembly over your vest will help keep the vest in place and help keep it from untucking too much from under your girthbelt when trooping. Also, placing a chicago screw through your d-ring strap and backing will keep the d-ring strap centered and stop it from sliding back and forth.

    I'll see if I can find some pics that will better explain everything.

    Re: My Jango Progress

    thanks Cruzer for the link. I still havent gotten the chicago screws yet, but i plan to. All i have left to do is pick up the backplate and shins which i also hope to get from Cruzer. Aside from that no progress on the Jango. Money is tight and I am trying to get my brothers custom mandos done before xmas. Its so hard to have an almost finished jango laying around and not be able to troop in it! ARRG!@*%#&(

    Re: My Jango Progress

    Very understandable in today's economy. Just an f.y.i., I use the 1/4" screw posts for the top and a 3/8" or 1/2" for the one going through the d-ring holder. Anytime you're ready for a backplate, just let me know, and I started preping for all of the new molds I need to make (including the shins) this past weekend.

    My only question is where did you get the flight suit from?

    actually no. I'm far too terrified to take this into the streets of manhattan with all the drunks and crazies.

    The flight suit is a Bobamaker flight suit but the color was pretty off so i did a number of RIT dye sessions to get it where its at now.

    Re: My Jango Progress

    Thanks for the info .




    Also did you make the jet pack?


    My last question, whats the armor made out of?

    Sorry for all the questions, just was curious because I'll be trying to make a Jango costume sometime in the future.

    Thanks

    Re: My Jango Progress

    Hey Phill, I used a mixture between wine and denim blue
    http://www.ritdye.com/Color+Chart.4.lasso

    The armor is mostly BKBT and it is coated fiberglass i believe. The rocket pack is a MLC possibly? I am not too sure on the maker.
