Haven't updated my build thread in a while in the custom area. I started working last fall on my Harley and finally got it to a point where I can now migrate back to my Mando. Wanted to move the thread here now that it is becoming an official Jango.
From the beginning the plan was to switch this out from a custom to the Open Seasons version of Jango.
I've gotten the shoulders, gaunts, and portions of the helmet painted to the appropriate color. Cruzer suggested Dupli-Color Electric Current Red with his original build so I went with that.
I also have almost completed the girth belt. I stripped the rope that I originally used and applied the braided leather that I had picked up from someone last year. Still have a few things I need to do to finish it up but the hard part is done.
Dyed the flight suit to get it a couple if shades darker. Pretty happy with how that turned out. It's always sketchy adding dye to something. You just never know how light or dark it's going to end up...
Have an ammo belt coming in from Seeker to replace the black ammo belt made by him last year that I have. (Will post it up for sale soon.)
Gonna start working on the jetpack. I've kind of dreaded that part since I picked it up. I've considered just selling it for a good price and then picking up a MoW pack... Here's some updated pics.
Next biggest issue is how to attach the leg armor to the suit. I have snaps and straps already in place on the armor but I don't like how that looks at all. I also have velcro attached but it doesn't pull the armor in close to the leg. I am open to suggestions if anyone has them... I am really stuck on how best to do this.
