    I didnt build the bucket. TK2280 picked it up for me. Thor, I believe is the maker?

    Here are the boots I got for him. Not perfect, but they will also double as his winter boots.. so.. double duty.. lol.

    The Gears of War guy that gets killed in part 1 and then his brother got killed in part 2. Or maybe it is just a every day COG trooper. So, when can I come over ? (need to get out of house and basement)

    Re: My sons Jango

    Cup, sorry I was out of town, and Im glad you found them.

    I got the right gauntlet mostly finished, (actually, TK2280 gave me his sons old one, Im just making it look like Jangos.. hehe... Thanks Rob!!) and I made the shell for the left one last night. His thighs, shins and cod are made and primered, I just need to make the knees and the hard pieces will be done.

    I picked up the hose and brass fittings from Lowes the other day, and in looking at the pix, the inside of Jangos hose looks blue?? Sooo I just put the nozzle of the spray can in the end of the hose and sprayed it in and it coated the inside very nicely.

    Now, to cut out the pattern for his vest, sew it up and buy his jumpsuit.

    Oh, I have more pix, just have to upload them.

    Re: My sons Jango

    Ok, a few new pix.

    I know that its not super detailed, but he will only wear it for a little bit before he is to big for it anyways. So Im not putting the details pieces that he will just break off...

    Re: My sons Jango

    Worked on his gauntlet tonight.

    Does anyone have a link to a more accurate jumpsuit? A garrison mate of mine found a good link, but I was wondering if there is a closer in color one. I could always add some bleach and lighten the blue to purple... Also, is there a pattern floating around for the vest. I was in Joanns today and the only thing I could find didnt look right.

    Thanks, Wags

    Re: My sons Jango

    So I painted the gauntlet. I have to add another set of magnets to keep it shut though. Im dumb and forgot to compensate for his sleeve. But, the shirt he has on is really thick. So we will see when his flight suit gets here.

    Still need to clear coat it. No thats not paint on his shirt, Im redoing the living room/dinning room and thats drywall dust that he is playing in.. kids....

    Re: My sons Jango

    Thanks fett4 and Kibosh, I got them from my sister about 6yrs ago for my bday. As a joke, cause they are kids size. They are rubies dart guns. So I just cleaned them down and painted them. I cant seam to find the kids size anymore though. Just the normal adults size.

    Re: My sons Jango

    Thanks. I reread my post, and did not mean to infer that yours were cheap. Just meant that I needed to pick up a pair, and wasn't sure where to get them.

    Well, his flight suit and vest came in today!!!!!!!! ( I think I was happier then he was.. lol)

    Here are the newest pix. I have all his armor parts done, except his left gauntlet, its about 60% done. I was also waiting on the suit and vest so I could cut his hoses to fit inside...I cant wait for Halloween to got out with him...

    Re: My sons Jango

    Thanks guys.. I should have it done this weekend. As for the girth belt, its just the Rubies. Couldnt see spending alot of money on something he was only going to wear for a small time frame. I paid $9 shipped of ebay.
