    Big up's man!
    Wicked awesome Beskar'gam.
    It's costumers like you that inspire people like me.
    I have been watching these boards alot recently and would like to make another set of beskar'gam. (My first set was made before i discovered this site and is made from corrogated cardboard and paper mache, not one of my better ideas, as when trooping in hot weather your sweat makes it soggy
    I to have recently purchased a nerf vulcan to modify for my next set of beskar'gam (even though like you I am a sniper).
    Any way bringing about an end to my rambling once again looking good.
    Tracyn out.

    OK, just a slight update:
    I rebuilt my backplate with a little (alright a LOT) of help from dankenman's armour thread (thanks vod!!!:thumbup). I'll post pics once I get it painted and weathered a bit.

    Again, thanks to all for the kind words and encouragement; you guys are the best!!!

    I like it, it looks really good, I hope I have some time to catch up with you, but as you can see by my posts, it's been a while since I've done anything with mine... I gotta wait for the tax man to pay me, but get this, California is gonna give IOU's ***?!

    Anyway, GR8 work.

    Very cool! I love the color scheme and the small details. where'd you get the small mythosaur skull?? And is that a galco yaqui belt slide holster you're packing your light blaster in??

    The Kamas are a kewl addition I really like too.

    Cant wait to see more.

    This is gonna be a sniper mando, right? I say build a HUGE rifle (but light ) with a long, telescoping or foldable barrel. (its not a real weapon, so it can be different!) Imagine trooping into a convention with a huge pack on your back, then pulling it off, snapping the barrel in place, screwing in the stock, and dropping the rolling bipod!! More like a roving mando turret! Just a thought. Am I insane? You have no idea.

    I'm not quite sure either, but he MIGHT mean trimming it a bit shorter on the bottom or simply untucking it, instead of keeping it tucked behind the belt. I dunno. I think it would look cool either way.

    keep us posted!

    I gotta get my printer back on line so I can print my shoulder bells and collar so I can cut 'em out of my trash cans, I'll see if I can at least get to that, plus since I started the new job, my schedule is all messed up (sucks to be the new employee).

    When I get some $, I'll tint the visor with mirror and finally get it installed and I plan on buying an RF stalk since it's so darn hard to get mine to work.

    Django- I got the mythosaur skull from:

    http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showthread.php?t=24219

    My sniper rifle has been started. The base is a Nerf Firefly blaster, to which I plan to add a detachable barrel and folding bipod...I'll post pics as the work moves along.

    I'll give that flak vest idea some thought... might look really good!!!

    Casius- I'll post pics of the back soon; I still need to work on it a bit. I want to add some leather, a backpack for my sniper gear and a knife...so as the updates happen, I'll post pics.

    For a rifle to have a detachable barrel, It just needs to be threaded in. If you can thread one end of it you can hide the female end in the rifle housing then all you have to do is screw and unscrew See how that works.

    A'd'ika I can give u a good design for a sniper rifle... it's the design I was going to use for mine until I decided to be a scout/FAC instead. It's easy because u can go buy a cheap airsoft m4, a piece of PVC and a little bit of balsa wood to build it, and do some repainting. Here's the design ner vod.
