    Sep 1, 2007, 2:37 PM - URGENT!!!! NEED JANGO PACK REFERENCE PICS ASAP #1

    I have been commisioned to paint a JANGO jet pack / jet pack by a very High Profile Entity.
    This pack needs to be as accurate as possible & I have 2 weeks to paint it and the Boba ESB pack.
    I don't know what it's called ( I'm no Jango expert) It's a pack like Boba's ROTJ without the scratches.
    Is this the Arena or the Classic?
    I need reference pics of the real deal.
    Please help me.

    Do you just need ref pics? Or paint list?

    Check SEEKERS web site. He has pics and accurate color lists for both packs. http://www.r2ro.com/events.htm.

    The yellow on the sides should be blue. I am not sure if you intended to paint it or not just giving you a heads up. It looks great so far! I have seen your ROTJ pack that jimmy buffett has that you painted (I believe someone correct if I am wrong) You do great work!

    I did one of Jimmy Buffet's packs. ( he has so many ) Thanx for the compliments.

    The paint job he has now appears to match the pics on Seekers website almost exactly (minus some detail of course). The yellow looks good to me.

    Yes I did.
    Haven't gotten to the thruster paint yet.
    I painted the Blue tonight
    Now it needs the stripes, sybols & weathering.

    and a comparison shot pre-weathering
    The symbols are not proportionate, I did them by hand from pics.

    Wow, that is looking great! Personally, I've never quite liked that shade of blue and yellow, but it's probably the best available right now when using spray cans. I'm sure there will be a big difference after a few washes and weathering.

    Great job!
    Keep it up.

    ummm....
    Not spray cans, it's Floquil Airbrush Enamels.
    and here it is after the weathering with a low flash

    Looks great, but personally, I've always liked a darker blue. That's all I was saying.

    Looks good dude! Maybe we should start a jet pack comparison thread for just JANGOS?

    Please do,
    I'm not a Jango guy, so I don't know what's good or not.

    Damn, that is really impressive. I honestly could not tell the difference between that and the real movie prop! How did you learn to paint so well?

    Welcome to the Dented Helmet.
    I'm honored that your first post would be a compliment to my painting.

    Now, on to your question;
    Practice ,man, practice


    seriously though, the more I paint - the better it seems to get.
    The Jango pack was my first attempt at a Jango
    But I had done several Boba's in the past.
    Each one seems to be better than the last
    They are all in the Gallery, i think


    After you've looked at every reference pic imaginable
    (and then looked at them again)
    Research the colors that are best (several threads on this site)
    Jump right in & Don't be afraid to try it yourself ,
    after all it's only paint & you can just redo it later.
