    My friends of this great message board.

    Many moons ago I have done a Jango suit. This suit was designed in such a way so that it could fit anyone. Mainly someone of a bigger frame.

    Now we have great prop people who analyze this to a Tee. I Have always admired the pioneers who have not bought from prop dealer and came up with their own methods of completing their suits.

    A good example is Lisa Fetts Tutorial for a jett pack. That idea was inspirational to me but I thought there can be more thourough research on this.

    So everytime I daydream or go into a junkyard, I ask myself - - - -

    Does this shape mimic a Fett Object? So you see my friends, i am trying to develope a way were an accurate Jango Fett suit can be made that is just as good as what you would get from a prop dealer.


    Perhaps anyone on this board can help out or contribute with pictures.

    I have found objects such as Vinegar & orange juice bottles that closley match the knee peices and bottom part of the missle.

    Tell me what you think. I am trying to make this look just as professional as opposed to "Scratch made"

    Hmmm, not totally accurate but if you are trying to do something completely from found parts, then I say go for it!

    Good work, I think those could be used effectively. You have not only a good sense of smell, but keen vision as well. (Oops, it even rhymes on accident).
