Just a little alteration on my jumpsuit legs and butt area and that’s it. I would do it, but I can see me now screwing that up quickly haha! So going to call a local place here that some local people recommend to get that done.

Jennari, went to Lowes here, tried finding the closest colors I could on a picture and went with it. But these are the colors I went with



Just set him up fully on mannequin to see how he looks finished. Mannequin is a few inches taller than me.

Nice! I got a mannequin for mine, too. And thanks for the info. The color that's most recommended by Jango experts doesn't seem to be available.

Got jumpsuit back and had a couple pics done with pack on at armor party to see what tweaks need fixed. I know of a couple right off the bat. But if ya see any let me know.

This is looking really awesome. 

I commend you on really getting into the nitty gritty of such a detailed build.

Hard to tell from your WIP, but it looks like your helmet has the required dent for Geonosis Jango?  I think I see it in your unpainted Jango Helmet pic.

I might trim the length of your gauntlet hoses until they don't poof out the double sleeve of your flightsuit so much. 

Beat up those belt pouches just a bit with some weathering as they look a little new.

I'm seeing some baggyness in the arms and seat of your flightsuit.  As well as the suit being a little too blue.  That Jango "Blurple" is a tough one to nail. 

Your vest is poking out from underneath your waist items.  Make sure that gets pulled up so we can't see the bottom of the vest.

Thanks Miix!

Some of the things that you have mentioned I have noticed also.
Yes, I do have the dent on the helmet.
I will be taking my flightsuit back to look at the arms.
I did take it to get the backend and legs worked on already. Makes it hard when you don’t have an -censored- .
I will also try and fix the color. That will be the hardest thing to achieve lol.
The hoses have been verified by Donald when I put the whole suit on during armor party.
Here are some photos.
Thank you for looking at it for me!

Updates:
So I changed the flightsuit a little to better match reference and not look so new.
Left photo is new color, right photo was old color


Also darkened the pouches more. Getting closer

K Miix, used the airbrush on the pack to fix the greenish/blue color I had on it. The outcome looks better.

Update..
Sorry I haven’t posted anything new recently. Been busy with stuff and took a small break from this project. Started back up and finished a few things that was on my check list I needed to look into.
- Finished gauntlet hose length
- Finished second gun
- Trimmed 1” - 1 1/2” off my flak vest(was a bit to long and going past my belts)
- added just a little electronics in my helmet
- added mesh around key slot holes on the inside
- fix a section on my ammo belt.
This weekend I will hopefully be putting on kit for photos and do the pre approval process.
