    No offense but "yes". Your armor is way too green. The craftsmanship is great...just the wrong color.

    Well, if you want honesty...

    The armor is the perfect color.
    The decal is wrong - should be a red circle that looks like a dragon.
    The shoulder bells should be a deep orange color.
    The mandibles should be orange as well.
    The helmet shouldn't have a dent.

    You meant to do a Jodo Kast outfit right?

    p.s. Webchief is dead on - great looking armor.

    Mobius,

    I think Jodo_Kast was kidding with you.

    I try for funny but most times it just comes across as jerk.

    On a helpful note, are you going for ESB or ROTJ? I'm not sure if that affects armor color or not.

    Jodo Kast - a misunderstood fool!

    I think you have a good looking suit of armor. But it is a little to green.

    I got some sintra sheets from a supplier here in Iceland. It measures 1,5 x 3 meters (about 118,5 inch x 59 inch).

    Thats big I had to cut them down to 3, 1 meter wide sheets to be able to fit them in my car.

    Im thinking about making a new one, saves me the trouble of sanding down the old one plus I can try to make a more accurate one instead.

    Anyone need a part made for them I have enough sintra.

    One question, how do you make the little square in the diamond.

    mmm maybe two ways
    first:
    Cut the center square, the put in the back of the diamond a piece a lil more big than the cuted and voila
    or
    2nd:
    you always can use a dremel tool
