found it cheap on ebay ive hot glue a head cage in it from a safty helmet so it fits nice and doesnt move about if you look close its only got a small visor and most is just painted black so i plan on cutting it all out and replacing it with a tinted brow guard face sheild it also need weathering and the 2 stripes adding

Re: My Jango Fett costume updated 25/10/12 jetpack build complete

Hi guys another quick update just finished the build really happy with how its turned out now all i need to do is get some paint on it see what you think


Hi guys ok so i put my jango suit on my duck tape dummy today and standing back looking at it i think my don post helmet is just not going to cut it because of my big body frame it just looks to small so im going to build my own i think im going to pep it out and resin it so today i started work on the rangefinder i used the same plastic material i used for the armor it glued well with super glue and sanded really well see what you think





I've also made a board for the inside to make a circuit on its going to be self contained with green and red flashing leds on the front and a clear on in the window that will work on a tilt switch so when the rangefinder is down the the lights come on and when it goes up they go off and all run off a small battery self contained inside the rangefinder


Nice range finder, but the edges look too rounded to me... they should have more defined/sharper edges, like this one from my scratch-built Jango.




hi guys just a quick update ive fitted the electronics in the rangefinder today it was a bit fiddly and im not to good at soldering and its not the neatest work but it works and you cant see the inside here a little video of it working
