Title: Az's Kit #2 WIP - Jango Fett
Post by: Azrayel on Nov 25, 2020, 06:33 PM
Finally starting on my 2nd kit after 4 years with MMCC. Im not sure how long this is going to take, probably a WHILE... as funds allow for things, but i have most of the parts figured out as far as who to source from.  Thought id get started with what I have so far, and ill continue to update as i get more bits and pieces along the way.

Biggest piece and really the only FINISHED piece... , the Geonosis JT-12 Jetpack. Finished and painted/weathered by our own Mi'ix oh so beautifully.

Ive collected my Blasters, and assembled them, just need to weather the grips and finish a few details - These are all metal from Dark Energy Creations

I have my boots courtesy of CrowProps < Gio> who does some of the best Jango boots out there.

And last piece i have currently is a jetpack harness courtesy of SEEKER from The Dented Helmet forums.

Im also in process of 3d printing the Gauntlets and various accessories for the gauntlets currently so should have some pics up of those sometime soon.

Just a start, down a long road to Canon... but should be worth it in the end.

Thanks for looking and stay tuned for updates in the future.

Slowly collecting more parts to work on the biggest part of this for detailing, being the gauntlets. Main shells are 3d printed, flamethrower, grapple launcher and rocket are also 3d printed. Ive collected and at least temporarily mounted, the 2 button switches on top of the flamethrower, the LED on the left gauntlet, i have the correct atari slide switch on the way to finish my switches for the left gauntlet. Last week or so i received the 2 position flip switches for the right gauntlet, and today i received the Grapple, 4 mini darts, and the saber dart tips - all milled and cut from aluminum stock, and have them temporarily mounted as well. So without further ado hers pics of the new metal bits and the gauntlets in current status.

Love the metal bits.  Lol I was just about to ask about the slide switch. 

Those look really solid.

I now have most of my major parts on order, but going to be awhile to get them... building this ones gonna be a game of patience. Going to keep working on the bits i can, and still have to find gloves, and order the leather parts, probably sometime in the next couple months ill get those things going.

I havent had a lot of movement on Jango, been searching endlessly for good Gauntlets... on my 3rd order of parts... and so far.. this order has gotten me CLOSEST to what i need. I think ive found something i can try dye-ing to get the hoses i need as well. This set, combined with other parts collected from other sources and attempts at building these gauntlets.. will get me as close as i can get at this time, short of molding, and casting my OWN from scratch. Maybe a project for later? But .. heres my newest set of Gauntlet parts.. FINALLY correct pieces for several sections of these gauntlets that ive been hunting for months to find.

Gauntlet set from DHPFX, vac-formed shells, Flamethrower box. Resin cast rocket , grapple launcher, flamethrower tips and hose nuts. Combined with my metal darts, grapples , switches, buttons and lights. I think i have everything i need to build out my Gauntlets for Jango now.
