Newbie also - progress pics


New Hunter
=== June 22, 2006 Updating again with new pics down at the bottom of the page :).
Finally finished with Rub & Buff and some weathering...


>>> May 3, 2006
Finally done with perhaps what I can call my v.1. Comparison pics of before (a month ago - phone cam) and after (current work - digicam) are now available. Thanks for the words of advice from everyone!

*** Where it started***

Much of this was from a modified MLC Boba armor kit and MLC1 helmet which I will modify at the RF ear piece section. The jet pack was of course MLC. I was lucky enough to be given a used pair of "knucklebones" brand hi-cut shoes which had the correct boot soles. From there I made my own boot top plates, shins and thighs out of styrene which are holding well to my relief.

Some newbie :p Looks awesome. Great job. Now if you're like Seeker you'll keep working on it till it's better then anything LFL makes :D


New Hunter
Thanks a lot for the kind remarks :) . Its such a privelege to be appreciated especially in this highly respected community.

It definitely motivates me to work harder. I will indeed post better photos next week while I start working on the rest of the costume.

I hope a lot of you guys are doing well also with your own projects.

Wow, you definatly don't look newb-ish! That is awesome! That "aiming the gun" pic is great. You pull off Jango very well!


New Hunter
Thanks really for the kind remarks from all of you. It makes working harder worth the effort.

Here are my updates:

Masking, priming and painting the blue portion of the helmet


Working on the gaunlets...





Don't mind the items which shouldn't be in the backgrounds :)
More updates to follow.

That an awesome Jango. Show us some more pics when your done like the ones right above there a bit blurry. Nice 3PO stuff to.


New Hunter
Thanks Cal,
Yup now that I got the digicam back to work I will be taking newer photos of this costume as I get closer to completing the project. (Indeed the previous pics were blurry since only a mobile phone was available then).
PS. The 3P0 isn't mine :) . I'm just helping a friend with the 1st coat.

Thanks, my project is very far from screen accurate and I hope to improve on it piece by piece but for now this will be sort of my springboard. My height is 5'7, err, too short huh?

not to short at all ,as Jango is about 5'8". My hieght.
Where did you get the gauntlets? i need a set that will fit me.

Oh really? Good. The shoes and helmet (sans the RF) do add some extra inches to that as well so I guess its ok then.

I got a kit from Ruffkintoy (that I looked for in the other threads). Its actually a Boba kit that I modified to Jango to the most of what I can do.
Its styrene with resin accessories. Good Luck Golden Rod.
