    Father/Son Project (pics)

    My 11 year old and I are starting a custom Mando for him. We just finished this together. It is a Bradleyfett vac-formed kit. I did the masking part and he did most of the paint work. We did some layered and lots of topical paint. He did almost all of the topical damage himself. Next we'll get a black flightsuit I have been looking at on the net and start making armor. He is getting hooked at an early age.

    Hey, Cojake, if you need anything "soft" just LMK.

    Looks awesome so far!!

    Glad to see a budding little Mando!

    Nice work! It's a blast building with your own kids.

    He's doing a great job on the painting. At 11 I think I would have just made it look like I threw it into a blender with a bunch of paint. This lid looks like it has some planning involved.

    Looks good, a little unorthodox but that only makes it more exciting.

    Building our Mando variants together was one of the most fun and rewarding projects my 2 sons and I have done in quite a while...memories of creating something together that will never be forgotten...
