    Two questions for DCB!

    1) On another thread many eons ago ( http://tdh.prop-planet.com/viewtopic...c=318&forum=10 ), you linked to a picture of the lettering of Zam's chest armor... but the link no longer works ( http://zam-wesell.com/misc/zamlettering.gif ). Could you fix the link? Please!

    2) Also a long time ago, you made an illustration of how the chest armor was constructed, showing the metal rods, etc. I couldn't find it on the boards here anywhere... *I thought I had saved all these goodies... but apparently I didn't - ) * Would you be kind enough to post that image again as well...

    Thanks Dallas!

    Thanks DCB!!!

    I've got most of the parts for the chest armor all ready to go - but I need to know how the top half is connected to the bottom half...

    This it?




    That's the only thing I have that's even close...can't remember if there was something else or not. Probably was and I never saved it...

    Can't remember who did this illustration either...

    If DCB can't find that one, I think I have it on my other PC.

    I found some lettering...I'm not sure if it's the right lettering though...



    I had to shrink it down, let me know if you need the bigger image.

    Re: Two questions for DCB!

    Yep... that looks like it!

    Thanks so much HothGirl!

    Anyone know how large the lettering is supposed to be on the armor? I'm guessing about an inch tall - does that sound right?

    Gotta question, what dies the lettering say? Is it in Huttese?

    I think its supposed to be Mabari - the SW EP2 Visual Dictionary says that she wears Mabari inscriptions and stylized emblems like the cape seal. The lettering on that looks similar to the chest plating IMHO, so I would assume it is also Mabari.

    Here's a nifty little site for loads of Star Wars languages

    Shame it doesn't reveal what I means though. I think it says

    "These babies are real"

    I had to lie to some fans that came up to me the other day. I told them " it's the maker of the armor" kinda how we have "calvin klein" etc.

    Re: Two questions for DCB!

    You know, it's definately Mabari armor, just didn't know if the inscription was that. Ya'know? Maybe it says,"Mabari armor" I wonder why she spoke in huttese when she called jango a sleeemo. "It was a bounty hunter called.... Sleemo." Therefore, she obviously didn't give him away. So, she was able to resist the Jedi mind tricks. She was more resilient than most give her credit for.

    I think I remember the cape seal being her rank in Mabari - although I haven't looked at that for a looooong time. I have the cape seal tattooed on my arm.
