Well, it's been awhile since I stopped by here. I figured that I would pass on a bit on information to you guys...I am planning on trying this, but first I need to experiment with casting/molding! :)
Just as it says, I have ILM insider info on how the actual armor was created...
"fiberglass....
the casting was scratched carefully with
sandpaper to simulate the spinning marks, then primed and basecoated
with silver paint (any color will do).
A material called Rub N' Buff
(the color is silver leaf)
was then rubbed over and buffed in, giving it that aluminum
shine.
the resin used in casting his parts
also had aluminum powder in it, which was buffed out and looked
beautiful."

you got some it right but the spinning marks is related to something else....related to spinning metal into a shape and the spray paint..not the Jango armor.

the Jango armor was a resin with alum powder added to make it a plastic metal. That was shinned up and to add a extra kick to the shine for the camrea Rub-N-Buff silver was buffed on to the surface..

Fettpride - The stuff is called Probond Polyurethan Glue made by Elmers Co.

Neil - cant wait to see your armor, its your fault I wanted to do Jango armor.

Hojufett - The buttons you could buy at any of those frabric stores. But make sure you get the heavy duty.

Pantera - I bought my armor from a gentleman from the prop board. He was gonna do a Boba Fett, but I turned it into Jango. It appears that he bought different parts from various suppliers. I chest parts are Bradleys i think. They are ABS. I really lucked out on that price.

Thanks again fellas if any one need any other pictures let me know.

Yeah, Bradley makes his armor the way it SHOULD be, with edges to it, to make it look like it's got thickness to it, and not like thin pieces of plastic clinging to the body.
At least that's how Boba's is. Jango's is actually kind of flat looking....go figure. :)
I still prefer the thick look rather than the flat look. If you want it flat, at least try to give it a LITTLE thickness. When I made my thigh pieces, I took not one, but 2 sheets of ABS, and ABS glued them together, to make them appear thicker. :)

Seeker,
I just finished sanding, weathering, and re-sanding my aluminum chest, shoulder, and cod Armor. I made my own aluminum thigh, shin, toe and knee armor. I still gotta make some knee obxes out of aluminum stock and re-do my Deano knee darts...It isn't screen accurate, but it's lookin' mighty fine :) I gotta get some pics up after I get back form Ft. Lauderdale...going there over the 4th :) :) :) Yippie! :lol:
