You have some leeway since the only references are comic books. Some people pic a high detail panel to base their colors on, or use the "average" of how the colors appear throughout the book.

Rub'n'buff is the way to go for the silver/metal of the helmet.  Its what the ep2 Jango's use on all their helmets (to my knowledge).

The final paint will look like this minus the thin spots. gonna try a weathering idea too use vasoline to do that I will apply the vasoline in a pattern I like paint over it wash off with hot water.

Got my holsters and girth belt and finished my cod and thigh pice first coat of rub n buff any way. Just a basic pic of getting every thing in its place. This pic is a rough out line of what it will look like so let me know how it looks and what I can do to improve it thanks

Not sure because the angle isn't head on- but you may have your thigh armor on the wrong legs.
Title: Re: Jango Fett open seasons #3
Post by: Tact Kor on May 27, 2013, 08:36 AM
Oh here we go with the thigh armor, I personally think they had them on the wrong legs during the film.

Atin, if the thigh armor looks right, then you've got them backwards. Crazy I know

The holsters and girth belt look great to me! good job vod.
Title: Re: Jango Fett open seasons #3
Post by: Atin'la Vhett on May 27, 2013, 07:51 PM
I probably do got it on backwards just grabbed one and stuck it on ill have better pics soon
Title: Re: Jango Fett open seasons #3
Post by: Vult Tavik on May 28, 2013, 09:51 AM
Hey Tact,

I'm just trying to save the guy from permanently attaching them on backwards then having to re-do it them. It is a common mistake, but one that every GML or judge looks for with Jango and like they say- if you chose to go Canon, you gotta do it right. I just checked the comic again and the artist did them correctly to match how they had them in the film.

Holsters and plates looks real nice, not sure what you have in your pockets, but I would empty them the pants look really bulgy.


Hey Vult, you are right about the thighs, I was JK as it seems to come up a lot. I should leave these Cannon builds to the experts as the GML/ judge can be really strict with these.
