    Jan 19, 2009, 11:33 PM - New BKBT Jango Knees #1

    This was a project that was started some time ago & then benched & during my time off at Chrstmas I decided to revive it again. I am sending these off to be molded & cast. Hopefully these will be cast in a flexible material

    I'll post some progress shots over the next day or two if anyone is interested.

    Very nice BKBT. I thought you retired doing this sorta work?

    I be very interested in the seeing more pics. Be interested in a price.
    Will you be adding the darts in? I got a set of darts off Mojo-Fett. Wondering for others on here.

    What the knees made of? You plan on making a CC set?

    Attached are a few progress pics & you can see how the new version is in relation to the first version I made a few years ago. The width will be the same so if you were able to wear my old knees then the new ones shouldn't be a problem & if they do get made in Hyperfirm rubber then they will be able to flex with you. They might even have an internal armature that can be bent to the desired shape. I'll leave that up to the experts to decide. As far as the darts, I imagine they will be rubber as well so they can take a knock without breaking. I have the dimensions made up, just need to get the prototype machined!

    I am taking a backseat in this hobby & have retired from producing any parts since I just don't have the time anymore. That is why my molds have been passed on to good hands. I did have some time off during Christmas & this was a project that was already half way done.

    I've been a fan of BKBT's armor since day one of joining here. This place is definitely lucky to have Jango artisans like himself, BM, FP and the others who originally paved the way for Fett costuming. Thanks guys!:thumbup

    BKBT asked me to post progress pics of his knee project, so here they are as of tonight. The detailing on these pieces is very nice and clean, which makes them all the easier to work with. I'm hoping to pour silicone by mid-week and then I'll begin making the solid resin casts that'll be prep'd for Hyperfirm production.
