    Caloh Vorn Custom Mando

    Hi there, I just finished a few parts of my custom Mando armour.
    It's not much, but I thought I could just get a few comments on that.
    The back plate needs some more work on the shape and of cause...paint
    The colours I've chosen will follow as soon as my scanning application is up again.

    Ok, I will give this a try, but sorry if I miss spelling(been a long time since German class):
    Das ist sehr gut!
    What did you make it out of? It looks very well done.
    I also like the color choice of the vest and neckseal. I am interested to see where you go with this. Viel Glück!

    Personally I like the shape of the backplate, looks nice and snug. The strap holes look good as well. Can't wait to see the color that goes on the plates. Good looking flak vest. Is the color on that olive?
    Und ja, Das ist sehr gut!!

    Re: Caloh Vorn Custom Mando

    Well first of all thank you for the positive responses ...very happy now ... the stuff I'm making the armour parts from has no actual name, it is from GuttaGliss and is called "Hobbycolor"...to discribe it I would say it's a kind of foamed plastic with a closed cellular surface structure.

    @Royal Nortron Cla: the shape itself seems good to me too, but I have the feeling it doesn't fit well around the shoulders => too much space between backplate and vest?...
    The color is...well a mixture of olive and grey-brown I would say.

    Here is what I want the whole set to end up.



    surprisingly I managed to get a scan done ..so here it is

    I will be doing some more detailed pics of the paint and decals within the next hours....probably this night

    Looks like you are off to a very good start. The plates look spot on and the vest looks top notch. I love the look of your concept too.
    Will be watching your progress with interest.

    Re: Caloh Vorn Custom Mando

    No problem

    I've just attached the collar to the back plate with screws which will be covered by the shoulder studs. Apart from minor fitting problems everything is turning out quite good.
    Pics will follow asap.

    I really like the boot caps. Do you plan on attaching the spikes as well? I'd be interested in some as well if you decide to make more.
