Newbie also - progress pics

    Newbie also - progress pics

    === June 22, 2006 Updating again with new pics down at the bottom of the page :-).
    Finally finished with Rub & Buff and some weathering...






    >>> May 3, 2006
    Finally done with perhaps what I can call my v.1. Comparison pics of before (a month ago - phone cam) and after (current work - digicam) are now available. Thanks for the words of advice from everyone!

    *** Where it started***

    Much of this was from a modified MLC Boba armor kit and MLC1 helmet which I will modify at the RF ear piece section. The jet pack was of course MLC. I was lucky enough to be given a used pair of "knucklebones" brand hi-cut shoes which had the correct boot soles. From there I made my own boot top plates, shins and thighs out of styrene which are holding well to my relief.

    Thanks a lot for the kind remarks . Its such a privelege to be appreciated especially in this highly respected community.

    It definitely motivates me to work harder. I will indeed post better photos next week while I start working on the rest of the costume.

    I hope a lot of you guys are doing well also with your own projects.

    Thanks Cal,
    Yup now that I got the digicam back to work I will be taking newer photos of this costume as I get closer to completing the project. (Indeed the previous pics were blurry since only a mobile phone was available then).
    PS. The 3P0 isn't mine . I'm just helping a friend with the 1st coat.

    Skalen,
    Thanks, my project is very far from screen accurate and I hope to improve on it piece by piece but for now this will be sort of my springboard. My height is 5'7, err, too short huh?

    Re: Newbie also - progress pics

    not to short at all ,as Jango is about 5'8". My hieght.
    Where did you get the gauntlets? i need a set that will fit me.

    Oh really? Good. The shoes and helmet (sans the RF) do add some extra inches to that as well so I guess its ok then.

    I got a kit from Ruffkintoy (that I looked for in the other threads). Its actually a Boba kit that I modified to Jango to the most of what I can do.
    Its styrene with resin accessories. Good Luck Golden Rod.

    Thanks guys.

    Yesterday I got to test fit my gauntlets and completed helmet after working on them.



    Next is to prepare the rest of the costume till they fit in the correct places.
