...I decided to show more pics of my Jango Fett in progress...I cannot be outdone by Cruzer :lol:

...basically all of the armor is by JD except for the abplate...I was able to get a silicone mold made of my sculpt and this is the 2nd pull from it...someone else was running around the shop and lifted the 1st one ;) I wanted to take pictures with mine for comparisons sake...

...I may opt to replace the chest pieces also with newly scuplted versions that I did...the templates I used are a tad bigger then the currently pictured chest pieces...

...thanks guys :)

...its actually Rub-n-Buff...

...I like the results however I am not too thrilled about it 'rubbing' off...perhaps some of the more seasoned people can chime in about this...I am looking for some sort of sealer to prevent this from happening w/out dulling the finish too much...unless I am doing something seriously wrong :lol:

Take care
Lewis :)

I know your still working out the kinks and there is still a lot of footwork left to go at John's and at home but wow, I'm just so proud to see this project of yours coming along so well for ya. (y)

GQ will be rolling Jango style in no time. :cheers

Take care bro!

OHhhh wow, mannnn that is a nice rug:lol: .

Alright dude your freakin armor rocks. And don't worry about the rub n buff. It hardens as it ages.

God I'm jealous as he....

Can not wait to see the finished product. Did you apply the "Seekers" method for the Rub-n-buff? Either way the Armor looks real good.

I never sealed my rub n buff finish. If you rub hard and fast enough the friction will seal the wax in. I've never had problems. I used rub n buff for everything from the helmet to all the armor to every part of the gauntlets. Even my Reinone boots have rub n buff on the sides of the soles.
