    Nov 7, 2015, 3:54 PM - My Super comando pics (WIP) #1

    Here are pics of my Mandalorian Super commando.

    I just got my MOW flight suit and vest. It is a thing of beauty. It is a two piece suit with separate boot spats and two ROTJ style pouches. The vest is a one fits all with two side openings.

    Jeez! I didn't realize how big I gotten until I put this suit on and my wife took these pics!!

    My character needs to eat a few less pizzas and junk food before going on missions. :laugh:

    Shin tools are done.


    Custom blaster.


    My gun has a secret Jedi knight stopper.
    It is a stun Taser, I'll use this when I take down my bounties alive.

    I'll fire off at a shot at a Jedi thus letting the Jedi block the bolt and the Taser fires off a fraction of a second behind the bolt and hits the Jedi knight while he/she is distracted by the bolt and putting him/her down in a heap without knowing what hit him/her.
    Taser

    Taser tracker

    I'm digging the helmet! Looks like the "eyes" helmet and Jango Fett's combined!

    Thanks!!
    I guess it could be a Jango - eyes helmet hybrid of sorts.
    My armor will be 98% white with wear and tear damage. So the main blue with be on the helmet, the rest of the armor will be in the super trooper Fett style although it will have wear damage and pre pro 1 decals on it.

    I repainted my bucket after seeing my helmet with the white suit and soon to be white armor.
    There is too much color going on with the bucket and white theme of the suit, it will not look right for how I vision it, so it needed to be changed.




    The grey will go much better with the white theme.

    I got some soft parts updates.



    Boots and pouches are MOW parts.
    The wookie braids are from eBay.
    The ammo belt is home made from vinyl and wooden blocks I shaped to be close to ammo looking pouches. It is not perfect, but it looks good.

    I also got a sweet deal on some old gauntlet shells from a friend BITD.
    Here is my right custom gauntlet WIP for my character.

    Mostly built, first layer of paint on, most holes drilled out for greeblies, and liquid mask on for second layer of paint. These will be painted in ESB style weathering in the super trooper style color scheme with a couple extra kicks.



    I've got a couple of the kids light up foam stick toys from church that I'm thinking of cannibalizing for the LED circuits to give them some life.

    Right gauntlet is done except for attaching the hoses.







    Working LED's blink or stay on steady.




    Left gauntlet started.

    Thanks! Me too, but..... It is awkward to hold on and I just can't get comfortable with the feel of it even with the light removed.
    I got something new up my sleeve when it arrives and I will be grafting the whole front barrel section on to something else.

    Got my chest, shoulder, and neck collar armor all trimmed and ready to paint.

    I gotta cut the slots for the chest lights.

    Armor attachment started.
    I decided to get my feet wet with attaching the shoulder armor.
    I'm using Chicago screws epoxied to the armor along with Velcro for initial placement .

    I then cut holes in the vest and used 1/4" grommets for the Chicago screws to pass through.

    Looking exciting! I love your overall paint scheme with all the battle damage. Not enough people incorporate enough battle damage on theirs IMHO.

    Thanks!! That is true, or they go over board on the custom Mandalorian's.
    I got the collar armor on using the same method as the shoulders.




    I ran out of Chicago screws and I'll have to go back to the hardware store and get more.
    I can get the Velcro on the armor and glued to the vest until I get more.

    I was sweating every hole doing this!!!
    I messed up one of the top left chest holes and I had to pull the armor over tighter then I wanted it to be, but it worked.
    The armor is all fitted now, I still have to fit the back plate to the neck collar, but the front is done.





    I took a break from the gauntlets to get this done, now I can take it off and paint it up.

    OK, I've officially gone crazy....
    After I got all the armor painted, I decided to go a different route.

    I decided on being a Mandalorian protector instead of doing a dirtied up super trooper.. So I will be repainting everything.

    I just got the flight suit dyed grey today as a start.

    I'm going through my paint collection now to see what I can do.
