Just one thing to keep in mind on Jango vs the others, as we see him in the films, he does live on a water planet, so the light dirt and all falls in that, while kal and Master, had they been in live action, may have ended up with a bit more dirt overall.

But in the end, it's your kit, and honestly, the weathering is a bit of a nitpick on my part, I think bigger is breaking up that shoulder area visually.

Really do appreciate the input, will ponder this on the tree of woe

Thanks!

Great influences. I'm a huge Jango fan myself, and will always consider Open Seasons and the Republic Commando series to be the holy grail of Mando material.

Open Seasons is what really inspired me to pursue this project, only took about 10 years to go from planning to execution. Your Jango is looking spectacular Vod!

Wanted to thank you and Fenn Bevin again for the constructive criticism. I took one of the legs and repainted the armor, and this time I did not dull the shine with steel wool. A black wash and some more judicious weathering and the difference is noticeable (I'll share some pics tomorrow when I can get shots in daylight, my garage lighting washes everything out).

I'm warming up to the idea of adding the bicep ammo holders, would make them out of the same leather as my ammo belt and holsters. Ultimately I want to add a Verpine Rifle to the kit, so thinking of having some rounds for that weapon in the bicep holders.

Thanks!

I know I got the bug, about halfway through I started saying things like "when I make my next kit..."

I've been constantly upgraded my same kit over 8 years  :laugh: adding small bits here and there over time as inspiration hits. It's a never ending process. Having started a new kit as I have no place to put anything else haha
