I think the DP deluxe is big enough to make a proper difference. The DP deluxe would make a better Jango than ESB Fett (smaller helmet for the shorter Jango). But those scratches are a pain if you are going to go Jango.
Here is a pic of my deluxe next to a DP 95. You're going to have a heck of a time with a DP 97- train wreck. A 95 you could work with, although it maybe undersized-- though it won't look as undersized as an ESB converted helmet would.
I Am doing the same,...for the past two nights I have been really sanding away at my DLX recast and the warps, bumps and scratches are driving me nuts ! Yet, for some reason, I am enjoying it...go figure..prop work = happiness I should put up some progress pics.
lisafett- howz the dog doing ? That poor thing was so cute , even when I was teasing her/him with my food !!!
