    Jan 4, 2017, 12:41 PM - Rounding out Jango #1

    I know this probably sounds lazy like I don't want to research it... but in reality, I just don't want to make the wrong decisions. So I ask all of you, Where should I get the flak jacket and jet pack? Would prefer the arena pack but would take the Kamino pack if the right circumstances and price existed. Going to try the flightsuit myself. If I screw if up, I plan to obtain that from Arkady.

    Thanks in advance.

    The flak jacket has always been a tough one. You are basically buying a hand made, sewn to fit leather jacket so it is costly and time consuming. Right now I know that Bobamaker is doing them, I think there are a couple of others doing them now too but they are tough to come by. I have a Ladysewforus and it is great. I have not seen her around in a while though and I don't think she is still doing them. I am fairly certain Loanstar is doing them right now too.

    Jet packs............DVH is making classic packs which would be a great Kamino. Man of War Studios makes both kinds but he is often out of stock on the Arena packs. RS Props makes a great pack for both styles (that is what I have, in both styles) The MOW pack is a bit on the bigger side which is one of the reasons I switched from his to the RS pack. BTW the reason I have both is because the right circumstances hit and I bought both styles at one time. I have a WIP thread where I paint them both up.

    For the FlakVest you could also try for Loanstar. He´s located in germany and is doing really acurate Vests. That´s where Im going to order my Vest too.

    I pm'd Lonestar a few days ago. Haven't gotten a response. I expect that if I don't end up connecting with Lonestar I'll probably go with Bobamaker.

    And I have placed an or with Carole for the flight suit and neck seal. Once the flak is ordered, everything will be, at least paid for. Finally

    Ok... I have everything officially ordered and paid for except one thing that I intend to try on my own. Anyone know where I can find the dimensions for the knee darts? If you're familiar with roller blades, it looks like the larger dimensioned ones could or even may have been made from the bearing spacers from folder blade wheels. Smaller ones... not so much.

    Looks good. If I were nitpicking, I would add just a bit more black/smoke grey around the exhaust of the jets....

    But it looks good.

    I can certainly do that. It's looking like my flight suit will be here today from Carole. Starting to come together.

    Has anyone seen Lonestar on the forums lately? I ordered a flak vest and was just wondering if everything was ok.

    Ok....painting the bucket, the part of the bucket UNDER the side attachment pieces, is it the dark blue of the pieces that go over it? Or is it the light blue of the headband?

    Thanks.

    All my research led me to the lighter blue under the RF stalk mount and the side attachments. If I screwed up... Not difficult to cover with the darker.
