    wash the resin first with soap and water.

    Then primer, then some krylon silver paint.

    Krylon is the toughest.

    then seal the paint with a few coats of clear semi clear coat.

    If you buy the can of Bondo, you'll need to mix it with the hardener. I think you can get some spot putty in a tube that doesn't need mixing. I'd wash it all while in parts, so you dont miss any small hard to reach places.

    Re: My Jango Progress

    yeah i got around to washing it with water and dish soap. I then let it dry, scored the pieces where they were going to connect and super glued them together. I just need something to put in the seams and cracks.

    Re: My Jango Progress

    Wow, your Jango suit is lookin sweet so far!

    Is that the resin blaster kitt someone here recommended to me recently(in my rubies blaster thread)? That looks sweet as well... I saw some resin blasters in another thread and they kinda turned me off to the resin kits, but that from what I can tell looks really good.

    I'm makin my own Jango blasters however. Well... a friend is machining the barrels for me and I'm doin the rest.

    Can't wait to see what you do with these!

    I'd go with the "kitty hair" IT's called Bondo glass. Has fibers in it for strength. I try to use that whenever possible. IT is a little harder to sand though.

    Just go to Walmart and pick up a tube of Bondo spot and glazing putty.

    There's no mixing required, jut use straight out of the tube. Once it dries, then you can sand it. I then use a baby wipe to remove any residuual dust left behind.

    At this point, it's ready for primer then paint.

    Blah, I hate that spot & glazing putty. Its worthless, IMO. I say go with the autobody filler in the can.

    yeah i think i and a few others mentioned these as an alternative. They are pretty nice. I do see some inaccuracies here and there but its good enough for me for the time being. Eventually I would like to upgrade to a 1 solid piece so i dont have to ever worry about anything breaking off. Now i'm off to the hardware store in search of bondo products.

    Re: My Jango Progress

    Hey, sorry for the late response runJEDIrun, I'm using bondo to fill the gaps, not attach any of the pieces together. I haven't attached any of the parts together. Let me know how that works out for you with filling the holes and dents with it as once piece. If that's easier, I'll do that on the 2nd blaster. I haven't touched that one yet. Good luck with whatever filler you choose to use! I'd like to see how things turn out for you.

    Re: My Jango Progress

    maybe i missed it somewhere but should i paint the barrel and handle separately then attach them or attach them with glue/bondo then paint them?

    Re: My Jango Progress

    I don't know about painting before assembly, but I'm going to fill the dents, then glue together the parts before paint. Probably glue it all together before any primer.

    Re: My Jango Progress

    It's a bit more of a preference thing to fully assemble prior to painting or to partially assemble, then paint.

    I'm going with the fully assembled then paint method as I feel that it's best in order to hide any and all join seams. It'll just require some fancy masking.

    I plan to apply the matte finish first, then mask off the grip and apply the chrome effect finish.

    Re: My Jango Progress

    Wow thats turning out great! Did you use bondo to attach the different parts? Or as a filler alongside whatever adhesive you chose to use? I'm going to assemble then paint then.

    i super glued the pieces together first. Then i filled the seams with bondo for extra strength and also filled in the little knicks and dents in the resin. i accidentally sanded off the little nubby thing on the trigger though. I'm so mad at myself for that. but oh well. i got carried away with the dremel.
