    Aug 3, 2008, 10:54 AM - Jango Fett Open Seasons #1

    Ok everyone. I have been in contact with several of you and have read many a post here, but this is my first thread! Yes, I am finally building my Mandalorian Costume, and have decided to go with a Jango Fett open seasons Theme.

    I will show you a small video of a Rubies Helmet I have been testing my paint schemes on, and my weathering skills. Here is the video and I will post more progress as it comes!

    What a great idea! I plan on sanding/priming/painting/weathering my armor today, if I have time to do all of the above...lol. And as I go, I will make some mroe videos. Thanks for the idea Vadr_h8r!

    Ok, so here are some videos of my painted armor. Since Krylon Paint dries so incredibly fast, I have been able to make some swift progress on my armor today. Hopefully before the day is out, I will be able to have it all weathered and be finished with at least part of my task. Thanks for watching! (oh and ignore the piece of grass on the shoulder armor, it was stuck on, but not to the paint, it came right off, lol)

    Well, I've put some thought into it, and for now, I am not going to weather, or at least not yet, and not as heavily as I did my Rubies, my armor. I would like for the silver to be obvious, not dulled out. Maybe I will do some minor weathering on the edges and whatnot, but for now, I'm going to leave it as it is. I will post pics/vids as I progress.


    Current Progress
    -Need to find a red cape
    -Need to find/make rangefinder stalk
    -Awaiting response from Bradleyfett about a Jet Pack and a Cod piece
    -Awaiting purchase of airsoft tactical shotgun to convert into my main gun
    -Awaiting purchase of a voice amp/headset
    -Awaiting arrival of knee armor from Asok
    -Awaiting arrival of leather belt with pouches
    -Awaiting arrival of Dickies black coveralls
    -Awaiting arrival of gauntlets
    -Awaiting arrival of custom Vest/Neckseal from Bobamaker (Daz is still on "Holiday" lol)
    -Awaiting arrival of custom ears for my helmet from Michigan Jaster
    -Am in posession of two Rubies Westar Pistols (quality of those are not quite important because they will always be holstered), Mystery Helmet, two polycarbonate face shields to turn into a visor (two in case I mess one up), a set of holsters, combat boots, chest armor, collar armor, leg armor (minus knees), butt armor, back armor, rangefinder.

    PLEASE, if you can think of anything I am missing let me know. Thanks!

    Ok, guys, if you haven't seen it yet, this is the new Clone Helmet they're selling for only 30 dollars at Wal-Mart...I know this has nothing to do with my Jango Open Seasons, but hey, I still like it lol. I dont care what anyone says, it's still cool. (At least for me who will probably never make a clone but will instead display it)

    Well, now I have weathered my armor! I havent done the helm yet because I didn't have the time for sanding and painting, so it keeps getting pushed back.I plan on doing the gauntlets next, followed by the knees, and then maybe I will actually do the Helmet! Enjoy...

    Does anyone know who to contact to get a mildly cheap jet pack? I am on somewhat of a budget and I really don't want to go over 300 dollars. I tried contacting BradleyFett on around August 4th and he still hasn't gotten back to me...so... any ideas anyone?

    Thanks

    Jet Packs are the worst things ever for people on a buget. I would suggest making one out of PVC plates, or sculpting your own parts and casting them.

    Bradley's vac formed pack is 300 bucks. You can build one in about a day if your on a budget. Its actually easier than gauntlets, because the parts are bigger.

    Go to the rocket pack forum and get the templates, and take your time.

    I also suggest thick superglue and sintra and excelerator to make your day much easier.

    Wow...lots of responses. I only worry about it not turning out well as Ive never done or even attempted something like that. I will definately look into it though. Thank you so much for responding! If anyone has any advice on making the pack out of sintra or any other material that may work better please let me know, any advice is more than what I have right now lol.

    I will look into those templates too. Again thanks everyone.

    their was a thread about 2 or 3 mts ago about a guy tryins to sell ,or trade a bradley fett jet pack ,with armour ,and gounts .look for this thread about 2 or 3 pages back and contact him .you should im sure you can come to an agreement, or buy the hole thing for 300 and flip over the chest pieces and guant youl have no trouble getting rid of what you dont want. i think he wanted something close to 400 for the hole thing , but it was a grip of stuff.

    Ok, Ive purchased a used stubby jet pack from another use here at TDH! I decided to go with stubby, because it always seemed more like the one in the comic than the normal JP, and painted silver (possibly with a mod to the rocket) it would look perfect for the part...least in my opinion, lol. Anyway here's a picture. (this is a pic he had posted, I dont have it at my house yet...the gauntlets and boots are not mine )
