    Female Mando armor

    I was wondering if someone on this board, or if you know whose armor this is could help me out. I want a two piece chest like this for my wife .
    A two piece just flows better along side the Fett man.
    Thanks,
    -Tim-




    If this is a members armor on this board and you want the pic down, just say so. Sorry, but its awesome.

    I am willing to bet it would be pretty easy to make a set like that, use the armor templates that are on the boards and cut them out of cheap sintra, heat them up and push the "dents" out from the inside with like a softball or something similar.

    Hehe. A softball... Find an object just a tad larger than the size of her "dents," being that there is a vest and a jumpsuit underneith. You may want to talk to Jango Wes about the MandoFem chest armour, I believe his wife is a purple Jango.

    If a guy were wearing that armor as you said, man, it would be wrong on so many levels...

    That's awesome. But with such a large...um..."curve" there, how would you put on a chest display board? Also the board would...like, be facing up...

    Yeah, a cicuit board would not work in this situation.

    The circuit board says, "Look up about 10 inches."

    Re: Female Mando armor

    I dont think its possible to make that shape into sintra or styrene without major issues. sintra is like trying to put a bubble in paper.

    It looks like fiberglass or vaccuformed pieces, I could be wrong.

    I would guess vaccu-formed. Judging by the three dimples on the ab plate. As un-pronounced as the dimples are I would think that it is vaccuformed from a thick piece of material. The chest medallion in that pic looks like it might be resin.

    Hmm... Now that I think of it those pieces can't be sintra, if a softball were to be pressed into them, they would either be deformed becuase flat objects don't like to turn round, or that they would become extremely thin.

    Unless more than one layer was used

    Re: Female Mando armor

    Wes: Give us a step by step process on how her chest was formed from Sintra.

    Curving works for Sintra, but this somewhat works like the globe, globes are accurate, but maps are not becuase of the distortion when a round object is made flat. Or visa-versa.

    Re: Female Mando armor

    You could try getting an already vacuformed mannequin torso (generic female form, one sided plastic), drawing out the armor sections on the plastic, and cutting the way you want it. Might be worth 15 bucks to see if it's usable.

    Try searching on eBay for "hanging mannequin".
