I have just received the last of my armor pieces from TheDentedOne. Now there is no excuse for me to keep putting off my Jango. I had started making my own flightsuit using Green Pepper patterns, but that proved to be beyond my sewing skills and has since been moved off of my list. One of my coworkers said he would ask his wife if she would be willing to take it on for me, he'll get back to me on Monday.
I am still looking for: vest, belt, ammo pouches, girthbelt, holsters and jet pack (holding out for Christians Jango Arena).
Parts I have:
Helmet - JD bought from Asok Unfortunately my fat head won't fit in it, my nose sticks out the front without the visor installed (any suggestions? )
Backplate - Cruzer bought from Cruzer
Gauntlets - MOW Jangos' bought from Christian replaced almost all switches and hose attachments with real ones, can't find the Atari switch for the left gauntlet (any help)
Left Gauntlet Missile - DarkSide bought from DarkSide Black plastic body with Brass and Aluminum Tip
Hoses - Bought from Princess Auto 10' $4.50 not dyed yet
Collar, Shoulder Bells, Chest, Ab plate, Thighs, and Foot Armor - JD bought from TheDentedOne
Cod and Shins - JD bought from JD
Knees - Asok bought from Asok on his last FG knee run I think
Boots - Well Shoes - Bed Stu's Bought from TDH member (can't remember who)
Misc. Aluminum bits - bought from (shudder) ebay. not bad, not great.
Blasters - work in progress by me, all aluminum
Obviously everything needs to be trimmed, sanded and a coat of paint put on, yes I said paint. I'll be taking these to work to get painted a colour we use all the time called Mill Finish Aluminum. It looks just like milled aluminum and our head painter tells me it's because of the aluminum powder in the paint. I've got to at least try it, saves alot of R&Bing.
Comments, criticisms, words of wisdom (give up while you still can) are appreciated.
