    TLobe00s Progress (getting pic intense) 501st Approved!!!

    I figured I'd start posting my WIP page...

    Well, because of the economy and everything else, I am trying to keep costs low and what not. I will also be posting pictures as I go.

    First the items I have: most of the costlier items were obtained through pawning off of my goods on Fleabay (6800 GT vid. card, Tungsten E2 Palm, etc...) The rest were from giving my wife puppydog eyes and living with the recourse of her giving me heck for having a strange hobby, lol

    Flightsuit - RedKap PB coveralls
    Gloves - Target ladies accessories section
    Vest - pleather from [AK]Edge
    Holsters - from [AK]Edge
    Ammo Belt - from thundrkiss
    Chest Armor - Trashcan Fett!!!
    Blasters - Rubies at the moment, but I found a way to make some
    Knee Armor - PVC pipe (at least trying to do it )

    Still need Gauntlets, Helmet, Girth Belt, Boots, and Leg Armor... I was hoping to get the helmet from Rupidupe, but alas Sithchick got it, congrats to her! But hey if anyone knows where I can get some of these items that would be most excellent

    Re: TLobe00s Jango-esqueness

    Also, if anyone knows the BEST and EASIEST way to add the short sleeves to the coveralls, I have been pondering how... I have seen some responses elsewhere in the forum, but haven't heard what is the easiest and who has tried what.

    Re: TLobe00s Jango-esqueness

    If the sleeves are long enough you can just tuck some material in around the arm and stitch around making a cuff. If they aren't long enough you could cut the sleeves off where you have enough material to fold under to make the cuff. Then you cut off the sleeves off another set of coveralls and catch the new sleeve material in the stitches that you do to make the cuff. I hope that all makes sense.

    Re: TLobe00s Jango-esqueness

    actually, that was what I came up with through my pondering... I thought I could make a hem since the sleeves will be under gauntlets anyways... but having two sleeves looks more authentic.

    Thanks for the ideas

    Re: TLobe00s Jango-esqueness

    Got a girth belt on Fleabay... hopefully it is the right size

    Still need Gauntlets, Helmet (maybe one from Sithchick ), Boots, and Leg Armor & Cod

    How hard is it to convert Boba Gauntlets to Jango?

    Re: TLobe00s Jango-esqueness

    Thanks... Yeah I see that he seems to know what he is doing with the Jango gauntlets but alas I think he is focusing on leg armor and small westar runs now

    Is there any others and the cheaper the better of course

    Thanks for the info though,
    Tony

    Re: TLobe00s Jango-esqueness

    Sithchick said Sarge is going to pass his helmet along to me, yay! I am getting closer...

    All that's left:

    Leg armor, cod piece, boots, backplate, rocket pack, gauntlets

    (below is Sarge's old helmet... it is a Bradley Fett... doesn't look too bad )

    How would these work for boots? I thought about filling in the edge on the soles a little with some rubber compound.

    Re: TLobe00s Jango-esqueness

    Here are some shots with the gear on... granted the girth is too small (I have that hidden in the back ) I also have the girth in the cargo hold for sale.

    Tell me what you think and what needs improvement... I know the vest needs taken in a little (it is an XL)

    Re: TLobe00s Progress (getting pic intense)

    Oh yeah, forgot about girth belt... I have one of those now too... the problem is the size.

    Here are the details of it.

    http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showthread.php?t=28984

    So that means I still need:
    Leg armor
    cod piece
    backplate
    rocket pack
    gauntlets

    So if anyone has any extras laying around, or knows of anyone, PM me and hopefully I can get this bad boy done soon

    Looks good.


    What rocket pack did you plan on doing stubby or regular?

    My other question is are you going for movie accuracy?

    Re: TLobe00s Progress (getting pic intense)

    going for 501st approval, and I am sure I will upgrade to get to movie accuracy... as for the rocket pack, I want to find the cheapest possible route to start with, and then move from there.

    I planned on doing the regular jet pack since these seem somewhat easy to scratchbuild from the WoF templates.

    i've been thinking along the same lines,unfortunately i'm not as talented as some of the guy's on here to do a conversion so i think i'll take the easy route and wait till some one does a gauntlet run..but if you do decide to do it please post some progress pics..

    hello there!
    not to nit pick, but:
    i) Vest shoulders seem a tad too broad for ya,
    ii) chest armor needs to be more 'V-shped'. currently looks too square.


    else, Love the general look n colour. sweeeeet

    Ok, thanks for the answers.

    You'll have to tell me how the jet pack works out because that's what I'm currently debating on.

    Also have fun with it

    Re: TLobe00s Progress (getting pic intense)

    Hey nit pick away, doesn't mean I need to listen to ya j/k... yeah I know the vest is too broad, it is an XL and I am a M, so I am gonna try to take it in a little to fit better.

    As for the chest armor... I started heating and bending it to curve better and it looks better, so now I just need to replace with snaps instead of velcro so it sits better on my chest.

    Thanks for the input
    Tony
