This is the thread for my armor kit.
Here is the sketch for my build, so far. Whats on paper will most likely transform via availability of materials and interest...but the concept is there:
Humanoid mandalorian force hunter, early crusader era.
Taozin armor plating.
Scalped padawan braids, crushed/cleaved lightsabers & lightsaber crystal trophies.
creature skull shoulder plates
shin-to-knee full plates
tonight is a work night for the armor and suit. might be going with a slimmer version of the helmet, a scratch fiberglass molded version, as I have all this cloth, resin and mold-release wax on hand and a little time on my hands...I'm thinking something more head shaped...might use a lacrosse helmet as a base, with a little adjustment to resize it to my dome, but at least it already mostly covers the head in a snug and slimmed down fashion. and has some forms to it that aren't just straight lines...

Here's what little I was able to get done, after giving up on messing with a scratch built. Just too many variables and not enough time to invest...
So I goto work on the bought bucket, taking out the panels:
and here's a sneak at what will replace said panels...
possibly more work tomorrow, depending on schedule...
