    Like Mirax says it's easy. I'll have some pics of my Jango Fett helmet with pinstriping soon. Just use black 1/8" pinstriping.

    I will be using these colors for now. Maybe one day we'll find out the exact match.

    Thanks to Gater for finding this cool visor color.

    I don't want to be a fly in the ointment, so to speak, but isn't Jango's visor more of a true blue? I think that the lighter color is due to camera flash. Nice bucket BTW!

    Ha! Not so perfect to me! It's sitting crooked on the stand. You're slipping, SEEKER.

    Kidding, of course. Looks nice so far.

    heh heh - cut and paste. Actually I suck in photoshop. I need to take some classes or buy a book on it. I'm sure I'm missing a whole shiet load of things you could do with this thing.

    Looks good Seeker. Photoshop is definetely the way to go. I always use it to proof before doing mods....for my armor, for my car, etc. Very helpful.

    It would be cool to see it with different lighting situations too. I know in some pics the blues look deeper, more rich and I'm guessing it must be the lighting cause these colors look right on to some of the other pics I have.

    Very very nice.

    So, did you just take an existing photo of Jango and stick it on top of your helmets and lower the transparency, and if so what photo did you use? I just got a little experiment I'd like to try.

    Yep I sure did. If you want the pics I'll send them to you.

    Merged: Ok, so where can I find a GOOD Jango rangefinder set ?

    I'm pretty new to the Jango camp. Everything's been Boba for me up until now. But my Boba is pretty much done, so now I'm preparing to tackle a Jango MSH...

    I just need an aluminum rangefinder stalk and an accurate resin Jango RF top. Thank god there are no lights in the Jango RF!

    Any suggestions on where to go? Any special RF detailing that a Jango novice might want to know about?

    Thanks...

    Well, Mardon is doing an accurate Rangefinder and stalk for us on his MLC Jango helmet. However, I don't believe the rangefinder stalk is aluminum, he works with fiberglass. I don't know if he will sell just the rangefinder without the helmet but you could certainly ask him. I'm not sure what BKBT has available.

    Merged: Re: Ok, so where can I find a GOOD Jango rangefinder set ?

    Yeah, I actually already have one of Mardon's hollow RF kits on order. I'll be putting Bobo's light kit into it for my Boba helmet.

    But since Jango's RF doesn't need to be hollow, I was hoping someone might know where I could pick up an accurate solid resin one.

    And yeah, I really want to find a tapered aluminum stalk to go with my MSH. (No point in going through all that trouble and expense for a MSH and then skimping out on a detail like the RF. )
