    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.

    Re: starting Jango

    Wow, Im feeling way behind. I got some rough parts, but still need a girth belt, flight suit, flak jacket and some helmet padding, etc.

    Re: starting Jango

    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...
