    Sweet, that was very helpful. Also good to see how large you made your door. I just painted the boots and I think they came out okay. (pic attached) I had the rubnbuff silver and there was a black spot on helmet, and I thought, sweet, I'll just cover it up. Now instead of a black spot, I had a bright silver spot, so I put more on and try to blend it... hope I didn't screw it up. My wife doesn't know the difference... but then again, my wife isn't in the 501st or on the dented helmet. Click image for larger version.

    The boots look good. I guess we should have warned you about the rub n buff. A little goes a loooong way. If you put too much on it will rub off, but if you use a little and buff it in with your hand then a soft cloth and let it dry it will not come off. I can't see the spot in that pic of the helmet, but maybe I am missing the forest for the trees. The good thing about all of this stuff is that you can almost always strip it down and start over.

    There's two layers on it. I did the first with my finger, it looked really weathered, but not "full", so I did a second and used a fine tip brush to get the points. I plan on weathering it down, (maybe naturally from just wearing it.) Really happy about the helmet then. I don't think people are going to notice. The fabric paint worked very well to cover the yellow leather. TY Fettfanatic.

    Arena Jetpack came in. New Question, does anyone have any idea at what measurements is best to place the slots for mounting? I did a quick sketch, but I'm just guessing. If anyone can look at their jetpack and give me an idea, that would be great. Also if anyone has a photo of the bottom of the jetpack. Click image for larger version.

    Is this what you were looking for?



    I really just guess-timated bro. I used Seeker's flickr as a reference as well as many of the images posted on here. Notice though in most pics with Temuera Morrison as Jango, the jetpack sits higher up that what you'd normally think:



    Maybe wait until you get your girth and back armor before drilling holes in your JP? Just my 2 or 3 cents :P

    The jetpack definitly sits higher than most people think. I had to move my clips down to get it higher and it is still a battle to keep it high enough sometimes, depending on who is helping me gear up.

    The lines you drew in post #29 would be way too high on the pack. It would sit very low on your back. The pic in post #30 looks close to mine.

    Ribann threw some common sense my way about waiting until I have the back armor to do the cutting. I noticed the pack is small and does sit fairly high. I'm going to do the painting this weekend, so I'll do the painting research (have a lot of links saved already) but have to learn some weathering techniques.

    A piece of sponge and acrylic paints in brown, black, and rust colored shades will be your best friends for weathering. The good thing about the acrylic paint is that if you mess up it is easy to wipe it off with a wet paper towel and start over.

    I would also recommend painting the "kill stripes" on the back of the boot blue, like the original Kenneth Coles.

    I can help you with the knee armor, gauntlet missile and the aluminum darts.
    Darts and missile fit perfectly with cruzer gauntlets

    Awesome Dark-side, those items are still on my list. I'm deciding what my next purchase should be... are Jango gauntlets the exact same as Boba Gauntlets (just a different color)?

    The gauntlets are quite different.

    The gauntlet rocket is even different.

    There are pics of it in the gallery. Those are the pics I used. I will see if I can find them again. I thing it is the set that is from the Paris show.

    Perfect, not sure why I didn't check the gallery... so used to using google image search. Well I didn't find any of the paint listed (not in complete manufacturer) But I did find paint, just a different manufacturer. Going to start painting today, I'll take pics.

    Not bad on the tote. Mine is still in a lime green tote with no wheels. I really need to upgrade.

ID:	59814Okay, instead of paying $65 for women's navy blue leather gloves, I found a place near me that supplies off white leather gloves. I got some royal blue dye and presto, it came out okay I think. (What do you guys think?) I spent loads less...

    I have 2 extra pair of the Target gloves. If you wanted a pair I would sell you a pair for 20 plus shipping. Probably about 25 or less.
