    Sep 22, 2012, 7:47 PM - Vult's Jango Build #1

    Updated: 10/14/2013

    - Scored a pair of Crow62 Repro boots
    - Decided to build my own bolo girth belt

    Hello everyone,

    This is my first WIP thread here on TDH. I already have my custom mando kit and have Official Member status with the Mandalorian Mercs. I have decided that the next kit I wanted to build is Ep. II Jango (had to spell it out since my vod Kelan / Wil is doing an Open Seasons III Jango). I want this to be a high quality kit and I know it will cost a several thousand dollars before I am complete.

    My Goal: 501st/ BHG qualified by July 2013

    Here is my (updated) plan based on Tommy's format:

    1. HELMET: Cruzer BKBT
    2. FLIGHTSUIT: Arkady
    3. FLACKVEST: LSFU
    4. GLOVES: Amazon
    5. GAUNTLENTS: MOW with Darkside aluminum upgrades.
    6. CHEST AMOR: Cruzer CC
    7. BACK ARMOR: Cruzer CC
    8. SHOULDER BELLS: Cruzer CC
    9. COD: Cruzer CC
    10:THIGH ARMOR: Cruzer CC
    11.SHIN ARMOR: Cruzer CC
    12.BOOT ARMOR: Cruzer CC
    13.HOLSTERS: Cruzer
    14.AMMO BELT: SEEKER
    15.GIRTH BELT: made it myself following Cruzers WIP and ebay bolo supplier
    16.BOOTS: Crow62 Repro's
    17.STANDARD JET PACK: MOW Kamino
    18.WESTAR PISTOLS: Master Replicas
    19. Knee Armor: Dark Side CC
    20. JET PACK HARNESS: Seeker

    Feel free to throw any questions that you might have my way.....I am an OM over on the Mercs with both my custom and my Jango.

    In case you are wondering.....I sport a full Cruzer kit with LSFU soft parts and an Asok helmet. Seeker JP harness, BFUK Kamino pack and Arena pack, TL00be girth, Cruzer holsters, and Seeker ammo belt. All of the paint and fitting was done by me.

    Glad to have you here on TDH

    Thanks Mullreel!
    I'm very excited to have this as a winter project. This weekend I won an auction for a mint set of Master Replicas Jango Blasters, I purchased the MOW Jetpack kit, and my boots came in- they are awesome! Looks like they will require very little modification and are super comfortable. Nothing like having a brand new set of boots to work with.

    This is the 3rd costume I am working on in the last 2 months and it gets expensive to do it right, so I told the wife I would trade stuff around in my other hobbys to pay for this one. I have a lot of guitars and as I sell one, I will buy more gear for this. I sold one this weekend and it payed for the jetpack & the blasters, I have 4 or 5 more to go which should cover the majority of this build. I plan to do all Cruzer armor and gauntlets, but I really want to at least try and make my own holster. I also have an ESB Han Solo that I would like to build a quality holster for.

    In other news, I need to hurry up and post some more guitar stuff on ebay to earn money to spend on this. I've already dropped $1.5 k on this Jango in the last week and haven't even started working on anything yet, lol! Gotta love this hobby!

    Ok, now I am excited- I sold 2 more guitars this weekend and was able to get my order in to buy the holster rig and replace all my armor with Cruzer CC, plus I have my order in for the SEEKER Jetpack. My MOW Jetpack is suppose to ship Thursday. I will have about 9 weeks to take my time working on the Jetpack and have been wanting to learn air brushing. I already had the compressor, so I bought what looks like a decent air brush gun from Hobby Town.

    Does anyone have any advice on what paint I should use or learning to airbrush?

    Which jetpack did you go with? Kamino or Arena?

    I have a color list for each in the jet pack thread I did a few months back. I also put some links in the thread to other info I found and used.

    Kamino- I want my Jango to be the one that gave Kenobi a run for his money, not lost his to Mace

    Thanks Mullreel, I will check your links!

    One correction....Jango Fett BEAT Obi Wan Kenobi on Kamino, and then again in space. It wasn't just a run for his money......I know he didn't kill him but he beat him both times.

    EDIT: Deleted this post since I decided not to make my own boots and got a pair of screen accurate KCPC Repro's.
    This will allow the page to load faster without these big images that are no longer part of my build.

    I updated the first post. I expect a lot more traction in the next few weeks. Some notable updates:

    - Purchased and received a nice pair of Crow62 repro boots off someone in the Cargo hold
    - Flight suit arrived so I should be able to start work on dying it to my desired Kamino "blurple".
    - Cruzer armor has shipped, should be here by Monday.
    - Cruzer BKBT helmet should ship in the next week.
    - SEEKER harness sounds like its getting close so I can work on the Jetpack
    - I received by Darkside aluminum Jetpack parts including white-lighted beacon.
    - Based off Cruzers recommendation, I ordered 30 meters of 7mm bolo cord to build my own girthbelt.

    I just need it to warm up a little here so I can get back out in the garage.

    What I would do with the shoe polish you have there is use it a bunch....THEN get some Kiwi shoe wax. Take the wax and do a bunch of coats over the polish and itll look like regualr leather. Thats what I had to do on part of my steering wheel that the leather was coming off on it.
