    4 Weeks Ago - Mar 31, 2017, 2:19 PM - My first scratch built Jango Fett armor #1

    Waiting for the flight suit and flak jacket to come from being altered then I can put it all on. I made all the leather. I didn't use any kits and made everything myself. Wondering the Best place to get the hoses?

    I know you probably just laid the armor pieces out on the floor for photo purposes but I believe the 2 thigh armors need to be switched. The cut-out swoop should go on the outside of the thigh I do believe.

    Make sure you put the ear on in the Jango Fett fashion and not the Boba Fett style as you are displaying it in the picture.

    Jango's right ear sits lower than Boba's does. That is one of the many differences between the helmets.

    Coincidentally enough I work for a company that does signage, we us Sintra all the time. From past research I was thinking of using EVA foam, but this may be a much better option!

    Mine armor is so I can join the 501st and they don't except Eva so it definitely a more durable and excepted option

    Sintra is the way to go when building it your self, its almost the number two topic on most conversations round here. The build so far looks looks great,

    Looks great! Have you molded and cast helmets before? I'm getting ready to do my second mold, first one was a mess. Nice work.
