    I do like the grey on silver and I like the pearlescent look you have on the grey, some might say that you would need to give it a bit of weathering though

    Yep... weathering incoming. Goona apply some blackwash at the end of the project so I can make it uniform.

    Thanks for the note.

    Finished the girth belt... I am pretty happy with the results especially considering the cost involved (or the lack thereof) to complete it.

    I think I failed to mention what exactly I am doing here overall in the original posts...

    Gonna end up looking like B'arin Apma for now. I am staging this so that if I want to convert him to a 501st approved costume, I'll just add some red to the helmet, shoulders, and gauntlets and have the Open Seasons Jango...

    Here's info on B'arin Apma:

    Well completed for the time being... I have a few changes I want to make but I guess that is part of the never ending saga that is Mando costuming...

    Here goes... (Be nice )

    Yeah, for now...

    Weathering is my future in addition to the jet pack, hosters, and some changes to the assembly.

    I think you might want to attach some longer pouches at the hips on your belt, I think it would even out the flow of your armour as your hips seem to stick out between the thigh plate and the belt on the side of your leg.

    Perhaps even a kama or braids or something.

    Holsters incoming! I am going to hide those stinking straps too and that will help even things out as well.

    I am getting ready to convert it to an Open Seasons Jango so there will be some paint but mostly a lot of weathering and/or adding Pewter RNB to the mix.

    Yep... it was all rub-n-buff that made it look like that. I am getting ready to apply the pewter rnb on top of it to make it look more in line with what I want but this was the silver leaf variety that others use for Jango.

    did you use the same pipe to make the back plate
    Yep. It took a few times passing it through the oven and some sessions with the heat gun to get it more like I wanted (though still not perfect) but it did the trick. I glued some abs scrap above the back slots and added bondo to get the shape for the ridges. Worked well for that particular detail.

    Great build up!!

    The only thing I' m confused about is that with a build this good and no really different colors then what we' ve seen on screen... why don' t you try and create a real awesome Jango? I mean... as it is now it only needs a few more twists and you' ll have a killer Jango... why not?

    Oh it's going to be a Jango... just the Open Seasons version. To be honest, I'd consider an AotC Jango but the ear caps on my helmet aren't correct and I'd need the correct version. With OS Jango, I think there's room for leniency on that detail.

    Also, there isn't one of these in my garrison and only two in the legion. We have a couple of Boba's and a Jango already so this won't conflict with what someone else might want to wear... but if I had a Jango helmet, I'd definitely consider going for it. All about the finances and availability.

    Thanks for the awesome WIP! Im totally inspired to do my Mando armor out of PVC! Did you completely flatten all of your material and then work from there, applying your pattern and shaping? Also the Rub'n'buff finish
    looks innnnncredible! Ive seen the gold used on some props and thought it looked ok, but the silver leaf on those plates.....smokin. Do you have to
    seal the Rub'n'Buff so that it does'nt rub onto everything else? Thanks
    for the awesome wip!
