    Jan 7, 2007, 7:26 PM - TK0488's real Jango bucket #1

    Here ya go Ral..

    I'm gonna try and take a page out of Seeker's book..:thumbup
    http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showthread.php?t=13565

    But I was recently commissioned to paint a FP one-off Jango Bucket ..
    Let me say first that this thing is amazing!!! A little small but still..WOW!!

    anyway I normally only Build/Paint Boba, but I thought I would take a stab at Jango...

    I think pictures say more than words...

    I will post progress pics as I'm able to...these were taken last week.

    Enjoy.

    WOW, that looks awesome Spideyfett. It is amazing how a visor starts to make a helmet look complete. I love the way you put the visor in. The black matting inside gives it an incredible look. Top notch work as always.

    Spidey - here's the way I installed the ear piece and stalk. I dont think there's any lost of the stalk height. The way it is it's the way the real one is. Jango's helmet is alot different in many ways.

    Nice work Spidey! I cant wait to see this completed.

    What did you use on the inside of the bucket? Just black paint?

    I tried to run the avi. It said AOL does not support this file. Is there another way to run it?

    Try right clicking on it and go to save target as and download it to your harddrive. Then try playing it from there.

    Thanks ALL.. I will put some better pics up later.....finished ones..


    and Benkenove....the helmet is a Cold Cast Helmet, so there is no painting the silver on.....just some fine Steel wool and Aluminum polish and its good to go..

    Looking good Spidey!
    I'm working on my LFL helmet as well. How did you go about getting your tinted visor so snug in the helmet. What did you use? a template?
    I made a template but not sure its gonna transfer accurately onto the visor.

    ALL DONE!!.....

    This Helmet will be a show piece, so no weathering will be applied...NICE AND CLEAN!!

    I've grown attached to this Bucket, and I hate to see it go... ..

    If you can get your hands on one of these babies I would Highly recommend one.
    Makes me want to switch from Boba to Jango.. (I can't believe I just said that. )

    thanks for all the kind words folks...:thumbup

    Enjoy the pics..
