    I think it looks fantastic. I love the look of the dome. Nice and dull. Very realistic, like the real thing.

    That picture looks pretty dramatic. Are you a photogropher?

    hahaha! mayyyybe. you got some pretty nice shots there yourself man. thanks for the advice. hopefully i can get the armor to match. i guess i should just go up to 400 grit on the armor since the helmet is only 400. should i prime then sand at 400 then prime again then sand again at 400 before rub and buff?

    This is looking really good so far, just joined up here myself. I'm unsure of the direction that I want to go at the moment though. However, why should I be so unsure when I could do EVERYTHING. *looks at empty wallet* There's always another payday.

    Re: My Jango Progress

    time for an update! Been really busy this month with work and such and i havent had much time to work on jango. I did however get my Bobamaker flight suit and vest in The vest is perfect and airbrush weathered (will post pics soon) but the flight suit color was a little off for me. I talked to Cruzer about this today and picked up some RIT denim dye. I plan to do a third dyeing with the RIT wine color once that comes in to give it that purplish hue.

    I'm an idiot and didn't take pics before i started dyeing. These two pics are after the first dye with and without flash.


    I ended up using a whole bottle of the RIT denim blue and probably at least 3/4 of the wine color when it comes in. Let me know if you think it looks better. THANKS!

    BM flight suit review: the sleeves were kind of short which is ok because the gauntlets will cover it, but the legs are kind of baggy so I'm going to get my girlfriend to take it in some. The quality of material and stitching is great! There are two independent front zippers, one fly and one jacket type. Overall pretty happy with the suit, but it definitely requires some work to get it screen accurate in color and probably in fit as well.

    p.s. those dark spots are wet spots cuz it didnt dry in the dryer all the way and i didnt have another $1.50

    Looks blue to me. I used Rit purple and navy blue. washed it, dryed it and then used some royal for a short time, cause the first run was really purple.

    Re: My Jango Progress

    ok. so do you guys think using RIT purple or wine would be better then? Wine i will have to order, but purple i can pick up at the local hardware store. How much of the bottle did you end up using of the purple ? 1/2? whole? thanks!

    I did it in a sink. Poured about 1/2 in, stirred it. I like the liquid so I'm sure I won't have to worry about little pieces of dye not dissolving. Put my suit in and kept moving it around for about 10-20 minutes, but don't quote me on that, I dont want to be responsible if you end up looking like Barney-fett.

    I was really purple at first. I washed it dyed it, hit it with some navy, washed it dryed it, then added some royal.

    I took about 5 trys to get it right, andI might need to touch it up after several washes.

    No real updates yet. I'm short on cash and waiting on the shins, back, and holsters...

    but I did get a Jango stand up cut out!

    Re: My Jango Progress

    So I wanted to post a pic with everything i have so far laid out on the table. The gauntlets are not pictured as they are getting some fiberglass reinforcing. All i need now is the back plate, hoses, holster and shins. Doesn't seem like much but $$$ wise is still far away for me right now. This was taken inside with flash.


    I did buy some wine RIT dye for the jumpsuit. What do you guys think about the color so far. Should I just soak it in the wine for a while or do you think I should bleach it down some to make it lighter? Thanks!

    Re: My Jango Progress

    You're gettign there, you got a nice collection of parts going there. I have an SGB flightsuit that was the lightblue color at first. I dyed it a couple times using the RIT denim combined with RIT's liquid purple color and it came out decent. I went sparingly on the color at first, barely using any dye until I got it where I wanted it to be. I hate dyeing stuff like this. I got another flightsuit coming soon from Ladysewsforus and I'll be dreading dyeing that and possibly messing it up.

    Re: My Jango Progress

    yeah this flight suit is going to need some adjusting to fit better too, I'm a little scared about taking on that.

    So do you think if i add RIT wine to this it will be a step in the right direction?

    Looks awesome man! I had been checking for updates. It will be incredible when you finish.

    Re: My Jango Progress

    Just put it in the dye and take your chances. I used liquid Rit purple. Make sure to dissolve the powder if that';s what your using. I'd do 5-10 minutes and check it. I always kept stirring it to make sure it came out even. Wash it, dry it, check it. Not enough? dye it again, a little longer, wash it dry it and check it. Basically trial and error. Mine was way too purple at first, then I added some different blues till I found something I could live with.
