    Instead of posting more in my old WIP thread with a new kit I decided to do a new thread as I decided to do a Mandalorian protector instead of a dirty super trooper, so for my third helmet repaint. :laugh:
    The Mandalorian protector helmet color scheme.









    I'm still deciding on painting the ears orange or not.



    I feel this is better suited for me and where I want my kit to go.

    I just finished the gauntlets...
    The worst has been repainted. The armor will be a piece of cake to repaint!

    I got my soft parts dyed gray and weathered.



    The flash washed it more then I figured. I'll have to hit the weathering a bit heavier.

    Boots and spats sans spikes.

    I touched the helmet up a bit as a few things didn't sit just right with me.

    I got rid of the red triangle as it was distracting, toned down the orange just a bit,and painted the left ear to match the right to keep with the orangish theme of the cartoon pic.



    Now it looks more bad *****.

    Thanks!
    Does it look better then the top pic I posted?
    I was wondering if I should tone down the orange just another notch or two with a little more black wash.?.

    I got my new MOW ammo belt and MOW side pouches on, I had to extend it a bit as you can see.

    Rebuilding my rifle to Mandalorian protector modified EE3 status.

    I'm using the new Rubies blaster as the base for the EE3, it fits perfectly with my 1 1/2" barrel and resin copy's of the real Webly flare gun parts.


    I will be making a real wooden stock for it.

    Boba Fett was a Mandalorian protector at one point in his life, he was 1 of 212 Mandalorian protectors, and he was one of three Protectors that survived a major battle in the early years.
    My suit is one of the no name Mandalorian protectors that lost his life in the battle and I'm basing my suit off the Mandalorian protectors costume requirements so that I can be a Brigade member of the Mandalorian Mercs costume club.

    Funkyred likes.......I am still undecided on wether to do a fett or mandslorian build tbh. I really want to do a fett one but don't fancy turning up to a convention etc and there being more than one fett there , a mandslorian custom suit would be different but would people still like it ? I can't decide lol

    Thanks!
    If your a 501st member and two of the sames Fetts show up can possibly be a problem as I don't know how that works, if your not a member, then suit up and have fun. If your a custom like I'm doing, just suit up no matter who is there.

    From experience, cons are a big place. I have an ESB fett and there's another guy in my area with an ESB Fett as well. The con is big enough where we barely ever cross paths and when we do, people go crazy! So, funkyred, I'd say go for what you'll be happy spending your time and money on . Like Lynn said, just suit up!

    OK, first full upper armor and cloths test run...
    Ignore the Mandalorian protector lounging Mountain Dew jams!!
    I would have fully suited up, but my girth belt is still drying from the wood stain dyeing process. That and my knees are still under construction.

    Is it the lighting or did you tone down that orange? it looks great now. Have to be honest and say I didn't think the orange was gonna work but it looks really good there

    Thanks!
    Yes, I toned the orange down a bit.
    I'm going with the orange and red visor as that is what is in a lot of the Mandalorian protector comic pics.

    Here it is, my custom MOW jet pack. Jango arena fuselage with classic pack parts.


    Here are the only visible "defects" that I can see from the mold degradation of the arena pack MOW mentions in his add.


    Too be honest, I may not even bother filling them in, why bother? It is not bad, no pin holes and no one will notice when the paint is on and it adds "age" to the jet pack.
    Pour holes in the back will need to be taken care of.

    A little surface texture needs to be sanded down and some red glaze putty will make fast work of this.


    Overall I think this in an awesome pack and is a far step ahead of my old Richies Armor fiberglass jet pack that I had BITD.
    I got my attachments done for the rocket and thrusters.
    1/2" threaded rod and accompanying hard ware for rocket.


    The thrusters got 1" PVC pipe spacers, 1 1/4" washers and 5/16th hardware all pressure fit only and holds tight. The thrusters can move if needed.

    Rocket and thrusters are complete.


    A little homage to the comics for those you who are wondering why I went with a purple rocket and is in keeping with my Mandalorian protector theme.

    Jet pack sanded down, red spot glaze puttied, first color put down, all holes drilled for appropriate greeblies and harness attachment.
    I got a '65 Mustang seat belt that I will be using for the lower harness point.
    I got Shape ways piano keys for the Jet pack since they are missing on the Jango packs, they look pretty good on the pack.




    I didn't like how the gloves looked in the pictures and they didn't feel right holding the blaster during the troop, so I got a pair of MOW gloves and I added the pre pro patches to them.

    Shape ways toe spikes, Shoe gooed and screwed.. They came out pretty good, I placed them on the higher side of to help avoid toe scuffing.


    New blaster base and a Shape Ways greeblie for the side. This will be looking like the Super trooper blaster.

    Main fuselage is now painted the main colors.
    Weathering has been started, and greeblie detailing will begin.

    Weathered up and most greeblies added.




    Waiting for final details to come in the mail and I will try my hand at wiring up a LED for my light beacon.
