Hi fellow builders! Here is something I created a few months ago... a Jango Fett version of the UCS Slave 1. I made this after seeing one on ebay with the discription "custom Jango Fett slave 1" and the astronomic price of 1500 US dollar :) It even had less parts than the original model. What bothered me the most was that the colours were wrong and it had a single seat. That said I started on my version based on the original model by Lego.
About this creation
The colours are correct as you can see on the main pic (this is from the "Ultimate Star Wars" book.)
The double seat. In the movie you can see that Boba sits next to his father Jango and offcourse this also needed to be on my model, so I made this custom seat. Plenty of room to fit both figures ;)
Screenshot of the double seat from te movie:
I also changed the colour of the engines since they are orange in the movie (This is also wrong on the original model by Lego ;)
Some pics of the model in LDD: Please note that the instructions do not include the double seat (standard single seat) I can always provide more pics if you want.
Well that's it guys! I hope you enjoy building your own version of this awesome looking ship :) I also have a parts list (Excelfile) but I can't upload it here. I will post it on my Facebook page " Custom Brick Models"
Best wishes for the New Year fellow builders!
Let's make it a good one!

I would also like to build a Jango Fett UCS Slave 1. Living in Brussels (Berchem St. Agathe). Please send me your details for purchasing the instructions (and the parts list?).
After some freeloaders uploaded their Jango Slave 1 UCS build with my instructions and claiming they designed it and did the recolour themselves, I decided to stop giving away instructions/ parts lists for free. If you want the instructions leave a message here and after payment of 5 euro/instruction I'll send you the files.
Thx for understanding!
Thx man! That was another reason why I made this: I really want another Jango Slave 1 set too!In the meantime, this one is pretty satisfiying ;)

Awesome work! I personally always preferred Jango Fett and his Slave 1 over Boba's. I really wish that Lego would make another set of Jango's ship. Anyway, your model is excellent! =)
