    My Jango so-far

    Jango is getting closer to being a reality!




    I will be trooping this for 3 Mardi Gras parades this year in New Orleans!

    I am re-working my leather gear as we speak. Version 2

    All I lack is knees and shins. My helmet will be in route shortly.

    Got the MOW Jet Pack to about 98% It was painted using colors suggested by Arturo. The nozzels need to be fixed to the PVC and weathered other than that I think this part of the build is DONE! Oh! and I have aluminum beacon and stablizer on the way that I need to add also!

    Looks good so far...although I'm curious why you painted the thrusters silver?

    ??? They look silver from the pics on the reference CD???????
    I do still have to weather them but they looks silver or grey to me. Here are the pics from the reference CD. Pics were taken from the actual costume.

    Yeah, that's just heavily weathered white IMO. Heavy weathering on white paint. Look at the way the thrusters contrast with the rocket tip. Photos from the NYC Fashion Show and inside the Dressing a Galaxy book make it pretty clear IMO. Look at the jango pictures on this page: http://imageevent.com/benaequee/cost...singagalaxynyc

    It's tuff to say! I am going to leave them alone for now and research them some more. They look grey or Heavily weathered as you stated, in the visual Dictionary also! AGGGHHHH I hate being nitpicky now it going to drive me nuts! Thank Donnie! :P I still luv you though!

    Re: My Jango so-far

    Almost there!! My Knees, and Helmet are on the way. Those are the final pieces. I need to work on the JP harness to snug it down. I also repainted the thrusters white. I marked the Flight suit for where the shin straps will go thru and also where the foot armor will attach to the boots. (so dont pay attention to the straps) Funny thing is I am not even completed and I started the upgrades! The 5pc chest armor is all BM Cold Cast!!!! I will slowly upgrade all the parts to CC as BM gets them produced!





    any constructive critisism is welcomed!

    I want to go ahead and give shout outs to Cruzer, MOW, BKBT, FP, Lonestar, slave5, and BM for not only the provided the parts but for their correspondance in helping me create parts & performing mods, during this build.

    Nice tree too. I would leave them silver, if you have changed them to white though, then good for you.
