    C5 Project tease...

    I've been posting pics over on the Mercs forums of what I want to debut at C5 but wanted to see if anyone here can guess what it is. I will say it's from the visual EU.

    Interesting peace of green armor you got their vod. The top photo? Eh.....I really don't know what it could be. But that picture of the armor is really interesting.

    Thanks! I am trying to make this as close to the source material as possible.
    There have been some pretty interesting guesses so far over at Mercs.

    Is the top photo the base for a jetpack?

    Bottom armor.....I dunno. An overweight Mando?

    Yes, it is the backpack (still needs thrusters on the bottom and the paint-up).


    As for the armor:
    LOL! No, that is actually how it is shaped in the source reference material.

    I would of guessed it to be a start-off for a jet pack for your costume vod. But I have been busy all day trying to get posts from other sites down. School starting up and a bunch of realy good stuff. But your armor is really good. Keep the pictures coming. I am sure that everyone loves progress pics here.

    OK. Here are all the pics again and two CLUES to help narrow it down a bit. *wink*
    Just be aware that it is NOT Lego or any kind of "Kilted Mandalorian".






    No darts on these yet:



    This is all I have done as of now so it will be a while before I post more pics.

    Re: C5 Project tease...

    Where would the horse and scottish hat fit into that? And I was actually also thinking Family Guy Chicken Fett for Chicago Comic Con.

    Those two clues (hat and the dark horse) should have been a really big help actually but if these don't push it over the edge, nothing will:

    Re: C5 Project tease...

    YAYYYYY!---- Saint_Nasty and Dead Eye got it!

    Whew!

    You're right, Cam hasn't done any other Mandos yet but I didn't want to narrow it down so much at first.
    Mods, you can move this thread to the "Armor" section if you want.

    I always liked the way Cam Kennedy illustrated and thought this set would look kind of cool in three dimensions. I looked through all his books
    and tried to pick the way he drew each part most often to narrow down my design. I'm having trouble finding a suitable plastic dome for the helmet as it is drawn to be a perfect bowl shape and not oblong like a regular helmet.
    So I'm skipping it for now and starting on the gauntlets just as soon as I paint the JP.

    Thanks for the comments and I'll post more pics soon.

    Excellent project! I have a t-shirt of a Cam Kennedy Boba Fett I purchased at Disneyworld 12 years ago! Good luck with this and I hope to spot you at CV!

    Re: C5 Project tease...

    An excellent idea. I can't wait to see this at CV. I'm actually sorta disappointed in myself. I had just reread D,L,&T the day you posted this lol.

    Re: C5 Project tease...

    Just an update:

    I finally found some suitable thruster parts so I will be working on those this week. I tried looking for some plastic balls that were the right size but eventually settled on some wooden craft balls. The "cones" will be made from metal condiment cups from Wal-Mart.

    My current headache is in finding a dome for the helmet.
    The Cam Kennedy Fett helmet is perfectly round when looking at it from the top and not the
    typical helmet shape. Most bowls that are the right size I have found have a flat bottom and won't work. I thought about those plastic hamster balls
    that they run around in but they are either too small or too large. It can be a full plastic ball if that's all that can be found because I can cut it in half.
    I need something that is about 9-10 inches across.

    Any suggestions?

    Cut up a globe? Or some stores carry large balls as garden decorations starting around this time of year you may be able to find one in a suitable material.

    I looked into the garden gazing-balls and all that I could find around here are glass or ceramic similar to a Christmas ornament.
    I nevereven thought about a small desk globe, though --thanks for the tip.

    Re: C5 Project tease...

    Thrusters are finished and installed and will be painting up the pack the rest of the week and I'll post some pics when I get it finished. I put fins on the missle, too.
    I'm going to start the gauntlets until I get the dome issue figured out.
