    I've only SEEN that type of padding in a helmet; no personal experience. You can always just use some foam, or you can go to amazon.com and search for military helmet padding. It's made of either memory foam or gel (can't remember) and comes in several pre-cut pieces to put where needed. Several TKs us them and like them. Good Luck!

    What came out of the blasters? I had a good mind to buy the got maul blasters in the cargo hold but didn't want to part with more than $250 for weapons.

    I bought some Acrylic brown and black paint how do i weather my armor parts any advice is great a video is better i learn better from seeing it done thanks
  18. Jan 16, 2014, 4:40 PM - Re: starting Jango #18

    Mix them together (or you can do separately) then apply with a cotton ball. The good thing about the acrylic paint is that if you get too much on, wash it off. However, since you said that you are a "visual learner," here is the Master Jango showing you how it's done...

    Small update armor boot spats are now attached getting those snaps on the boots was a bit of work. I might put some velcro on to keep the spats from shifting but as of now i'm satisfied with how they look
