Jango Fett's Helmet
Star Wars Episode II - Attack Of The Clones.

Jango Fett was a renowned human bounty hunter, assassin, mercenary, and the "father" of Boba Fett, a genetic clone of his, whom he raised as a son. A Human from Concord Dawn, Jango Fett agreed to serve as the genetic template for the clones that would form the bulk of the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars. When Master Obi-Wan Kenobi located Jango and young Boba Fett on Kamino, Jango Fett fled after a fierce battle between Obi-Wan Kenobi to join Count Dooku. Obi-Wan Kenobi tracked Jango Fett into the asteroids above Geonosis where Jango Fett thought he had destroyed the pursuing Jedi Master. During the assault on Geonosis Jango Fett was struck down by Mace Windu in combat, Jango’s legacy would live on through his son Boba Fett, as well as his cloned brethren, who would have a profound impact on galactic history.


I acquired a nice helmet kit from a local Bloodfin Garrison member. As you can see here this is what the kit came with:
- Helmet
- Right Side Detail Piece with Stalk and Top.
- Left Side Detail Piece.
- Rear Key Slot Piece with Screen.
- Black Helmet Trim.


The helmet casting had some spots in that I did not like. I cleaned it up a little bit, sanded it,
add some bondo, sanded it, washed it and gave it the first coat of primer. Looking at the first coat
of primer there are still some areas that I need to clean up and make smooth. So it begins again.


I have now sanded and cleaned up the helmet again. Then a second coat of primer to see how it looks.


I then trimmed out the back key slot area and visor area. I see a few spots that need to be touched up.


I bondo, sanded, smoothed and washed the helmet again. I think it is starting to look decent.


Here is the last sanding and final coat of primer. Now it is time to start painting.


I masked off part of the helmet for the silver paint.


When that was dry I masked off and painted the dome.


Here I masked and painted the light blue color of the helmet.


I now masked off and painted the sides of the helmet with the darker blue.
The picts makes the blue look like the light blue but it is not, it is just the sun making it look lighter than it really is.


Now I finished painting the helmet with the darker blue.
When that was dry I applied car trim for the black lines on the helmet dome.


As I was working on the helmet I also took the time to paint the detail pieces.
When that was done I installed the visor l and glued the detail pieces onto the helmet.


Since I have some reference pictures I took of the one of the real Jango Fett helmets I decided to do a little weathering.
Most people think the Jango Fett helmet is all nice and clean. It is not, remember he is a Bounty Hunter who works.
He is not a pretty boy when it comes down to business. This is my finished Jango Fett helmet.
