    Can you watch that show online? I don't have cable. I honestly don't see how they could NOT do a set of episodes (or a whole season) about RCs.

    Adonian: Potter will be the next series I tackle. I'm finishing up Twilight right now (my girl asked me to and they're FAR better books than I expected). Those wands are awesome. You made them with paper and Bondo?

    Minor update, 1 pic of the fabric I plan on using on the back of the bucket. It's glossy like a rain coat.
    I decided to put a vent on the top back where the cardboard is, I will glass and then cut horizontal vents.
    I think I will cut the visor open where I put the blue ink.
    I will put the fabric around the back kind of like the red pic two posts above, but not as high, I need to hot glue it, then put some sort of greebles or something to make it look good.

    If anyone has ANY IDEAS, I am definately willing to listen.

    Sorry for the double post, but...
    The wands were made from some of the wifey's 12x12 scrapbooking paper (like card stock), I covered one side with glue (gluestick), grabbed a corner and started to roll it to look like an ice cream cone, then I held it in place with a couple of rubberbands, trimmed the bottom (handle end) then filled it with paper towels, packing tightly for rigidity, followed by hot glue for the handle and covering the bottom and top openings.

    I used hot glue for the embellishment, then painted with cheap walmart $.57 paints, and finally clear coated with spray paint.

    That actually is a Crusader-era mask. That really isnt a helmet "kama". it is part of the hood. Your idea is still original!

    edit:

    hey A'den, can you find a few images of the Mando I put up, I forgot where I got that pic.
    Well, I got it from Noval's mando mercs page, but for the life of me I cant remember where

    I say again those wands are brilliant. I love the helmet. When I get around to build one for myself I'm going to do my visor with that same angled slant, I've always loved that look.

    Re: 2nd set of trash can armor

    Thanks you guys. I will get more done soon, I got an idea, just need to flesh it out a bit.

    A'den, that's it, perfect... see the pic below the one I posted, the blue guy... I think I'll make mine long like that.

    http://www.petitionspot.com/petitions/eragonremakenow/

    I had to put another petition... I like the Eragon novels, but the movie sucked shebs, can you guys help out?
    Theres only like 30 signers, ouch.

    edit: check this pic out... one of the patients went off and threw this trash can..
    It's stuck inside the wall in the corner, about 4 inches off the ground.
    I've been his 1 to 1 nurse for the last 3 days, and no problems, I guess the other's just dont know how to talk to this guy, he's not that bad.

    Thank you... I know that I am going slow, but I have the basic hard parts and vests, just need to finish this bucket, and get flight suit. I will finish soon. Or A'den will come after me with my own wip.

    If you are doing a dual color mando, like boba with a main color and a accent color, you might consider stitching material in the accent color around the edges of the "kama".

    Re: 2nd set of trash can armor

    This one is solid white, no accent colors, I'm still divided between Snow and ghost.

    But that can change if something pops into my slippery mind.
