    LOL, its 1/4" sintra so i only had to sant it smooth, i did have to fill a few chips with bondo but i cut it about 1/16" big then sanded it to the proper size so there weren't to many.

    i didn't put the front sights on it to make it fit in the holster easier and less breakable parts i'm about to start painting so i'll post more soon.

    Looking good, I really like the way the blaster is turning out.

    well i painted the blaster but i dont like the way it came out. it was satin black which i had used on something else but on the blaster it looks like gloss so im gonna get some flat black and then weather it and hopefully it will look better.

    Love the desert paint colors! Killer craftsmanship! The way you did the phone gives me ideas... i am having issues figuring out how to incoperate my phone into my bracers... my phone isnt a smart phone, it is a flip up brick. Keep up the good work. I love custom pieces like your gun to

    thanks Zero, don't do the phone if you're planning on joining the mercs though, i haven't applied but i read they don't approve of current tech on your costume. Personally i think if star wars was made today any mando would have his own mandalorian made tablet powered by Android 10G (the fastest network in the galaxy!)

    Re: custom armor

    Thanks for the heads up with the mercs but i have no plans on joining them, I have had my fair share of interactions with them and short of bad mouthing them… I wasn’t impressed. But you are right, imho about the tech, bigger better if they had it they would have used it. Not to mention that "Mandalorian armor was an expression of the wearer's individuality while still presenting a united and largely unmistakable face identifying the wearer as a Mandalorian" Hence 'custom armor'

    About the phone...

    There are certainly tablet touchpads in the prequels. If George doesn't care about continuity, why should a Mando? I think the suit looks great, and the phone is clever.
