    Mar 8, 2007, 11:35 AM - My new helmet WIP #1

    Well I recieved this helmet the friday before Halloween and here it is today waiting on rub n buff. This has got to be one of the most painstaking things I have done to date! All the sanding to get it smooth probably close to 15 hours of hand sanding!

    So lets play a little game.........What helmet is it? Jimmy Buffett is not allowed to guess LOL (he knows he was there when I picked it up!)

    DARN! I'm not allowed to spill the beans! Good job on that so far. Well, you learned from me RnBing my armor what a process that RnBing is. How many attempts did we make with my armor? 6?

    Bah! Looked like it. Could it be a moded boba helm? That one pic is too hard to see everything to ID it. Its not a rubies, that has too much a better shape and the arrows arent close together like the rubies on this one, so not a rubies, although that would be the smallest helmet. It looks almost like what Mirax's Jango helmet is, in fact, I think they are both from the same maker.

    Yes sir you are correct not only a MLC but the big mac daddy MLC1!!!!! Can I now say that I have the biggest Jango helmet out there? LOL

    I got the RnB on it tonight but got smudges all over the blue! So I will be cleaning her up this weekend and will be getting the pinstripes on it as well. I am thinking about the thicker striping to keep it more to scale.....

    I am also working with t-visor.com to get custom visors for the MLC 1!!!

    I have to edo the ears because they got some overspray on them. I am also trying to decide if I want to modify the right ear with a sintra shim. If not there will be a hole when the RF ear is in the "down" position. I was ging to weather it all up tonight but decided to wait until I have the ears installed.

    Yep I compared it to "the helmet formerly known as Seekers" BKBT and it is about 3/4 of an inch taller and about 1/2 inch wider. I would say about 10% bigger than the BKBT. I am 6'3" and 255 pounds and I am trying to scale everything to my build. The helmet may be a touch big but everyone complained that my Rubies 2 piece was too small and its bottom circumference was exactly the same shape as BKBTs!!!!! The BKBT is about 1/2 taller than my old 2 piece but only in the dome.

    Hi I am new to all of this and I am starting my Jango, I just received my helmet from Rubies, I got their collectable version, it fits well but the paint does not seem to be quite perfect in that the paint overlaps in areas and is not quite straight. It is made out of a vinyl type material, is it possible to sand this material and paint? I don't want to mess it up.

    Thanks,
    Nathan
