    Jan 17, 2005, 11:09 PM - New Jango Helmet! New Pics Top of Thread. #1

    There are not too many options for a Jango helmet & I wasn't happy with just filling the dent of a Boba helmet. This is an extensively modified sculpt that has not had a component or surface reworked or scratchbuilt. What you see is a combination of fiberglass, styrene, resin, epoxy & body filler. I will be making a mold of this later this week so I can cast up a fiberglass copy. PM me if you would like a personal showing.

    It's very nice looking, but its still lacking on some Jango details. It still looks like a modified Boba helmet.

    A couple more detail pics. I'll get some more of a side by side comparison by a Don Post standard.

    What details are missing? It looks unreal to me! Perhaps it would appear different painted up. Good work BKBT.

    Firstly, the cheeks/mandibles are off. This is my biggest gripe with the Boba to Jango converted helmets. Jango's cheeks aren't as "deep" as Boba's. It's pretty clear that if you look at the cheek/mandible area on Jango's helmet that it is more "upright" rather than deeply slanted into the helmet. I don't have one specific picture which shows this...because it is pretty evident to me at least in a number of photos.

    Secondly, the profile view isn't quite right. Look at this picture: http://pluto.spaceports.com/~lms/ms6.JPG

    BKBT's helmet appears to have too much forward slant to it...and in the other profile picture it looks like the dome is too high. Also, the upper earpiece which is supposed to be flush with the lower earpiece, seems to be sticking out a little bit too much...but maybe it sticks out more on certain shots (i.e. different helmets...there were 4 hero helmets alone).

    Don't get me wrong, I think BKBT's helmet is quite nice looking but it hasn't reached near the level of accuracy that Boba helmets have.

    Well I put in an order for some silicone & should be ready to go on the weekend. I'll keep updating this thread as new developments occur. Thanks for all the positive responses & I will answer all your PM's eventually.

    I'm sorry, but I can see no major differences between Jango's and Boba's bucket. Ok, there's this earpiece modification, but I doubt that Jango's cheeks aren't as "deep" as Boba's and man, we're talking about a Marrow_Sun: with the Mystery Helmet, the most accurate Fett bucket available
