My rocket dart from Machinecraft Replicas. Aluminium and brass and painted up with my airbrush. Will weather properly when the gauntlets are assembled.

My Jango boots from Crowprops - highly recommend! Great service and product and the fit is absolutely perfect
Review over on YouTube :)

It seems there is currently a Jango run. I am excited to follow you. I am also very interested how your back armor is going to look as mine of DC props has a couple of bad spots.

Yeah a few builds currently happening! I have the armour but it's just been put away really, not looked at it closely with regard to finishing work. Got my flak jacket now though, so can think about attaching and finishing the pieces. It is cold cast, but I'm sure parts can be touched in with rub n buff if I need too

Got my flight suit and flak vest from Bobamaker. Amazing quality! A respected name in the community for a reason! Both fit exceptionally well, and I just quickly snapped some pics with my helmet. Did an unboxing over on YouTube if you wanna see a video and more of what they look like :)

My DEC blasters and gloves. They are Fownes (womens) navy lambskin in an XXXL (9). I would say if you have medium to large hands as a man, they should fit ok :)
To get a better fit with the gloves, remember that leather can stretch. Heat them up with a hair dryer, but not too hot, because you're going to need to pull them on your hands to stretch them and you don't want to accidentally burn yourself. Flex your hands, make fists, etc until the leather cools to skin temperature, they should be fitted for you at that point, and shouldn't shrink after that, unless you get them wet.

Awesome tip thank you!!

The helmet kit as I received it. Pretty good cast and trimmed out. A few issues to sort out, including the slight warp at the front, pretty easy. Less easy is fixing the right ear which is cast in.

But! allows me to upgrade my helmet

First step, grinding it off, filling the gaps with Apoxie sculpt and then remaking the holes. A little rough but will be covered up

This helmet cast is a larger one, but I need it as I have a large head. I'm always worried about helmets for costumes fitting me, head is about 61cm around. This is without padding too, so it should be perfect when I get to doing that.

I have the opposite problem. Majority of helmet look giant on me since I'm short lol. That helmet looks good on you!

Wicked build so far mate, love Daz' Jango soft parts so much! Looking forward to seeing how you tackle the rest of the armour and bucket.

Making the most of the nice weather to get a primer coat down on everything. Should mean tomorrow I can sand lightly with 400 grit, then mask and start painting the blue.

Got both the paints. Also following Cruzer's tutorial so will be letting the first blue cure for 7 days
