    ...slavefive Jango Fett ***UPDATE***

    ...I decided to show more pics of my Jango Fett in progress...I cannot be outdone by Cruzer

    ...basically all of the armor is by JD except for the abplate...I was able to get a silicone mold made of my sculpt and this is the 2nd pull from it...someone else was running around the shop and lifted the 1st one I wanted to take pictures with mine for comparisons sake...

    ...I may opt to replace the chest pieces also with newly scuplted versions that I did...the templates I used are a tad bigger then the currently pictured chest pieces...

    Re: ...slavefive Jango Fett ***UPDATE***

    ...thanks guys

    ...its actually Rub-n-Buff...

    ...I like the results however I am not too thrilled about it 'rubbing' off...perhaps some of the more seasoned people can chime in about this...I am looking for some sort of sealer to prevent this from happening w/out dulling the finish too much...unless I am doing something seriously wrong

    Take care

    I know your still working out the kinks and there is still a lot of footwork left to go at John's and at home but wow, I'm just so proud to see this project of yours coming along so well for ya. :thumbup

    GQ will be rolling Jango style in no time.

    Take care bro!

    Alright dude your freakin armor rocks. And don't worry about the rub n buff. It hardens as it ages.

    Can not wait to see the finished product. Did you apply the "Seekers" method for the Rub-n-buff? Either way the Armor looks real good.

    I never sealed my rub n buff finish. If you rub hard and fast enough the friction will seal the wax in. I've never had problems. I used rub n buff for everything from the helmet to all the armor to every part of the gauntlets. Even my Reinone boots have rub n buff on the sides of the soles.

    Ah, you're too much man. But seriously though...

    "I'm a Daddy, not a fighter!"
    That's my excuse all the way these days.

    As expected your Jango's looking awesome. Did you do your holsters yourself? If so, I'm impressed cuz they look good. How about those knees? Looking good -are they JD cuz they seem to have a little different shape in the front? And last but not least, what about the bucket, let's see some pics.
    Check the fine details on the shins and check the scale on the boot armor.

    Jealous of the JD armor.

    Now to go back and upgrade all of my stuff
