The swoop seems to be on the outside... He's got it right.

Cool!  I couldn't tell, so...nevermind!   :D

Pics in kit playing guitar. Now. :P

Isn't it incredible how many belts we end up wearing with these things?

I keep forgetting to do that! I assume Remo's thread is still running about that?

Thanks Vode! It has been a lot of very rewarding work so far and it is getting so close that it is almost bittersweet. It will be great to have it done and have a full canon kit, but I have learned a lot of new methods and will now have to rotate my kits.

Wow, that's amazing. Could you explain how you made the girth belt in more detail? It's outstanding.  :o

Here is Cruzers step-by-step that I followed:

http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f28/j...results-13558/

My only variances were:
- I used a 7mm bolo (found on Ebay) 30 meters @ $75
- I order the natural version so I didn't have to use acetone to remove previous paint/ dye
- I first made the belt 7" wide as described, but that was way too big. I had to cut off an inch. The 501st CRL states approximately 5", then adjust according to your height. The SEEKER ammo pouches just looked too small against a 7" belt, but I think they look fine against 6" and you don't want it too small since it closes the gap from the cod to a few inches below the ab armor. That is the biggest problem I see with some other Jango's out there- too much gap between ab armor and top of girth. Check the screen caps and images from TDH and you'll know what I mean.

It wasn't too expensive- I spent $160 at Tandy leather for the backing and leather weld & leather cement, plus $75 on the bolo leather from ebay. However, I have a LOT of left overs on everything but the bolo's. I may use the extra leather to try my hand at making a new Han Solo holster rig. Or maybe I'll make a couple more of these girth belts since they sell pretty well. The problem is they are a lot of working gluing all the strands on. I watched two full Star Wars Movies while gluing all the strands down, lol.

I think your colours are spot on, but I'm a little concerned about the wonkyness of the cheek curve paint there, where it meets the silver. The line looks rather uneven.

Granted I've not looked at references in a while, maybe the original does this too ;)

I love those MR's.

 POO- you are spot on with that and I still have some touch-up I need to do on it, I was just waiting until I get to the weathering stage (this weekend) and I will be finishing it off with a paint brush.

Thanks!

Thank you Tempest

I had my daughter help me take some pre-app pics tonight:

My chest armor bunched up a little so I may have to adjust them. It definitely looks different off, lol.

So this is what I still have left to do:

- padding in helmet

- my chest plates bunched up a bit on me so I need to move them further out

- I have to cut off the extra nylon strapping from the harness now that I know what I need to use

- my harness straps we're not even in the back so my jet pack was crooked

- knee's could use a little velcro to keep them in place, they slid down a little

- could maybe trim an inch off the back armor, can't tell if it was hitting the girth in back or not
