    I have been working on this for a while now and have never done a WIP thread.

    Here is what I have up to this point...

    1 flightsuit Bobamaker (selling this one)
    2 flightsuit LSFU
    1 vest Mareyce
    2 leather vest LSFU
    gauntlets Cruzer
    holsters Cruzer
    girth Tlobe
    ammo belt Seeker
    backplate Cruzer
    1 chest, collar and shoulders Steelblitz
    2 chest collar and shoulders Cruzer
    1 legs and knees wickedbeard
    2 thighs and shins Cruzer
    boot armor Cruzer
    Arena Jet pack MOW
    westars unk

    Pics




    I still need vest, gaunts and a JP, along with a fitting of the flightsuit.

    Nice job! Helmets look real good. How do you have your right ear/rf stalk mounted? PM inbound.

    I originally used rare earth magnets on the first helmet, but they just weren't strong enough and if I leaned my head it would fall off. So I installed a small screw in the back of the earcap and drilled a small corresponding hole in the helmet. Then I just bolted it on. It is still very easy to remove if I need to, but it won't fall off.

    Cruzer gaunts are in and work will commence soon.

    Picked up a no name JP to fill in for now.

    Waiting on a vest.

    Getting closer.

    Looks great. What did you use for weathering? I'm a TD and we use woodland scenic tempera paints.

    Re: My Jango WIP

    I used black and burnt umber mixed with just a little gray tempera paints. I tried to keep it uneven colors to keep it more natural looking.

    Thanks for the compliments. I really hope to get this done in the next month.

    Re: My Jango WIP

    Ok to revive this thread.........Here are some JP pics, I am expecting the arrival of one vest soon. I have a LSFU vest and flightsuit on the way too.

    I have recently picked up some navy blue leather gloves, and some CC shin armor. My Arena pack is not finished yet I still need some cleanup and some weathering, but here is a pic in natural light.

    Re: My Jango WIP

    Here is the kit spread out. I just got in a set of Cruzer upper torso and cod. I laid everything out on the living room floor and shot a few pics. My gaunts are not in the picture but everything else that I have is. I am still waiting on a vest from one vendor that was promised in October, and a real leather vest and fitted flightsuit from LSFU that should be coming up in the near future.

    I have several pieces that I have upgraded even before I have had a chance to use them. I will post another pic with some comparison shots.

    Re: My Jango WIP

    Here is a pic with the Cruzer CC chest and the Steelblitz fiberglass chest. I must say both of these are nice. The Cruzer set is a bit thinner and lighter, but they do not feel flimsy or any less durable than the Steelblitz.

    Cruzer is on top Steelblitz below

    I hope to get in the vests soon so I can suit up and start fitting this thing to me. That and I need to finish assembling my gaunts. The Darkside aluminum parts should arrive in the next few days. Getting closer.........

    I had my Fett shirt on so I thought I would take this as I was putting everything back away.

    Looks great! I'm working on the Girth Belt now, but I think it's just a way for me to stall the whole taping/painting/RnB'ing fiasco that will be my "stubby" jet pack!. Great Job!!

    Re: My Jango WIP

    Ok I finally got one of the vests in. My plan is to mount the Steelblitz armor on this vest, which is the pleather one. This will give me some practice and take away some of my fear for when I get in the leather LSFU vest and I mount the Cruzer armor on it.

    edit: I posted the wrong pic

    I have used snaps before but I wanted to try using grommets and bolts. I have to say that I think the grommets and bolts are easier than the snaps. The process I used was to put a bit of velcro on the plates and vest and get them into position. Then I marked it with chalk and measured to make sure I stayed centered. I then place the grommets in the vest. I put the armor back on and made sure that it was lined up and spaced the way I wanted. I then took it off and marked the spots on the armor using the hole in the grommet to line things up.

    Then I just JB welded the bolts on. It seemed easier to keep every thing lined up.

    I will try to do the shoulders and cut the bolts with my dremel tomorrow. Maybe I can even suit up a bit and get some overall pics.
