FINALLY starting my Mando build. The main factor in the delay was: The Army kept getting in the way (also hard to get the right facilities in the barracks for what I'm doing). Now that I'm out, I can finally start presenting my scratch build beskar'gam.
The body suit is a pair of my old Nomex CVC Coveralls from my days as a Bradley and Stryker crewmember. For the armor pieces, I am using 16 gauge aluminum. Everything's going to be pretty simple, the only thing I can think of that will take some work will be the helmet. I will also be crafting some beskad's to go with it as well, so, stay tuned!
Most of the tracing was pretty easy, the only thing that took some work was the front collar, it was a little short for my liking, but after 3 tries, I was able to extend it adequately and keep it fairly even. I'm going to be cutting out and starting to shape pieces today, and will post more when done.
