    Holster, girthbelt,Thighs, shins, back, gaunts, instep armor: Cruzer
    Jetpack: MOW

    I hope, i didnīt forget anything or anyone.
    Thanks to all the guys mentioned above and to Timbo Fett, who helped me to avoid big mistakes.

    I think, iīm good so far,
    the last parts missing:
    MR Westars and navyblue golves

    And here are some pics, of what iīve done so far:

    Agreed, very good collection and great work on the paint and weathering. Only critique I have to offer is to flatten down some of the gloss n the JP. Other than that - it's bangin'.

    Be on the lookout for the gloves at Target in the Ladie's dept (prolly hard to find this season)...Or keep checking around online. I bought an extra pair because I figured they would wear out as tight as they are on my hands.

    Subscribed to this thread. Really want to see how it goes! Where do you plan on getting your Westars from?

    Thatīs the biggest problem. One pair was offered to me, but at that moment, i hadnīt the money. And when i had the money, they were gone...sith happens.
    I think, i have to modify some toy-blasters ītill i get a pair...
    There are other blasters or parts from Evolution (the barrels-but i donīt know where to get the pistol grip from and i canīt say anything about the quality) and kropserkel (i donīt have any infos about quality and price either)...So weīll see what happens-iīm always open for reasonable offers.

    Let me know what you find out. I bought some Darth Maul parts from Kropserkel a year or so ago and they were good quality.

    Re: Jango Fett AOTC

    kropserkel does not make Westars anymore , Evolution does, but the accuracy is a little off... I contemplated buying EVs and the resin ones found on fleabay every now and then, and using the resin handles with the metal barrels.

    Or if you're inventive, you can buy metal tubing and make some resin/metal hybrids on your own, that is what I did by using old drum cymbal stands

    Re: Jango Fett AOTC

    Thanks for the answer TLobe00- i think, iīm gonna modify some Blasters from ebay, till i hopefully have the possibility to get some MRīs...
    Had some time to continue.
    Testfitting: Thereīs some weathering on it, but i think, it should be more...

    And the knees:

    Photographed with flashlights...feedback welcome...

    Re: Jango Fett AOTC

    I'm really curious to see how far down Bobamaker's helmet is going to sit on you. I'm curious if it will be flush with the collar armor or if bits of your flight suit will stick out like mine.

    Looking good man looking good. Is that CC or gel coated armor? I'm trying to see if you can tell a difference between the two visually.

    Re: Jango Fett AOTC

    Okay Guys, had some time to continue, unfortanately, the boots havenīt arrived yet.
    Although the jumpsuit ist dyed and the actual colour is a light purple, on the photos, the jumpsuit seems to be blue. Donīt know why,
    maybe problems with the camera.
    In the first pic, you can see the colour as it is:

    As you can see on the naxt pic, the back plate is too long for me, so iīll make the plate shorter, that the plate ends right
    above the girth belt:

    With helmet:

    I have shortened the flakvest after this pics, so it ends with the lower edge of the girthbelt.
    Also moved the cod a little bit higher and cut the straps under the cod you can see on the pics above. Jumpsuit is prepared to fix the hoses by using some elastig staps and snap-hooks.
    Feedback welcome.

    Re: Jango Fett AOTC

    I'm lovin' it! Looking great!

    The only major thing I see:

    1) You need to swap each thigh plate. The "pointed" or concave side needs to be on the outside of your thigh.

    Minor adjustments:

    2) Your ammo belt should be scooted up so that it is almost (but not quite) flush with the top of your girth. Match this picture as much as possible:

    My only other advice is to stop looking so much like a bad@$$

    Re: Jango Fett AOTC

    Okay, had some time to continue, still some little things to change, but version 1 or what i call Mark I is good to go( i know, i've changed the shins...)


    Shins will be placed higher, also got to put the JP in a netter position, the Jumpsuit will be changed the next weeks to a more color-matching version. But that's all easy fix.
    Feedback welcome.
