Jango Fett Built from Scratch (Pic Heavy!)

Today I attempted to tackle Jango's heat issues... Quite successfully if I do say so myself!

I drew up and 3D printed some parts to fit the Blower fan I have.

These parts attached to each end of some spare Boba Fett gauntlet hose I had.

One of the 3D printed parts was glued onto the blower fan and sealed round with silicone.

I mounted the fan onto a piece of Foamex and stuck on some Velcro. I wanted all the mechanical parts to be easily removable just in case they ever need maintenance.

The fan was Velcroed (Is that a word?) behind the vent in the back of the helmet and covered in foam for a bit of sound insulation. The hose, luckily, fit nicely between the head harness and the helmet and was Velcroed into place. The 3D printed part on the other end of the hose was to spread the flow of air across my face a little better. The fan was then connected up to a switch and then to a powerbank. These were also attached with Velcro.

The end result was pretty successful, I now have a nice cool breeze blowing around my face!

Also here's a quick Photoshop I did... (Which is now also my desktop background). If anyone can do a better one, that'd be great! :lol:

Tom, Your Jango Looks AWESOME!! You've done a fantastic job!!!

I was wondering about your helmet, to me it looks a tiny bit short. Maybe it's the lighting???

Thats a cool setup, I'm a fan... (haha, see what I did there? I know... lame. But thats my kind of humor!)

That said, the pragmatism with wich you tackle the jobs you encounter is astonishing. Me being more of the overthinker-kind, I admire that!

The photoshop-job is cool, too! Not only do I like the background very much (in fact it is in my "cool art" assortment), you fit in there really well :D Reminds me of the Game "Star Wars Bounty Hunter".

Thanks a lot! (y)

I think perspective plays a big part in this, but I think you're right... It's made from one of my Boba Fett helmets so I expected the measurements to be a little off for Jango (who seems to have a taller and thinner helmet). I've been thinking about doing another cast and trying to add some height, but doing so would mean i'd have to remake all the ear parts etc... For now it will do, haha! :lol:

I was lucky to find such a good piece of artwork with the right perspective to match the photo. I was thinking of Star Wars Bounty Hunter whilst I was editing it... Great minds think alike! :lol:

Upon closer inspection, it seems the helmet is relatively the right size (the visor section at least). The dome could do with a little more height, the cheeks are too wide and the sides of the helmet need to taper less. I feel this could all be achieved fairly easily. Sigh... I'll add it to my list... :lol:

Fairly easy?!? This would mean an entire new helmet cast, wouldnt it?
You are right though... The dome is most notable, to me and the width more reflects a Boba.
Your pragmatism and solution-oriantation again only leaves me astonished!

Your great minds think alike quote had me smiling! I love that game, although I never played it myself.

It would! But I have a mould and it'd be a shame to not get the use out of it... Saying that, I'm probably not going to do it right away, as I want to troop what I have at the moment... Before I start modifying everything... ;)

I only played it briefly, but I still have it for PS2 somewhere. I might dig it out so I can get into character!

Hello everyone!

My Jango kit was approved by my local trooping squad! :D

But before taking on it's first outing, I wanted to do a few more little changes/additions...

I revisited the blasters and decided to repaint the handles. I used the same Alclad II paint that I used on the rest of the blaster.

I also needed somewhere to put my voice amplifier. So I decided to make a pouch that was in-keeping with the rest of the pouches on the belt.

127.jpg


128.jpg


The mic cable plugged in through a small hole and was tucked into the girth belt and fed up through the flight suit. Once set up, the pouch could be slid to the back of the belt so it was more or less out of sight.

129.jpg


My kit was now fully ready for trooping this weekend... Due to the current circumstances it was a little different from usual troops... Only masked characters were allowed and we had to keep our distance from the public. Nevertheless I was eager to go out. Here are the pictures from yesterday...

Fortunately one of the crew members is a professional photographer, so got some incredible shots of me too! :love:

After a full day of trooping I was pleasantly surprised with how everything went with the kit. The only thing being that the three hoses on the right gauntlet seem to restrict my arm from sitting comfortably, causing quite bad arm ache by the end of the day. I'm going to try and rectify this before my next troop.

Those pictures are really really cool! Congrats on your first troop! Btw... I think it wonderful, that Star Wars helmets qualify as masks :D
