    Custom Mando (pics)

    Hey everyone, just wanted to start a thread for this custom mando i am putting together for one of my brothers for xmas. Started off with a DP95 helmet and worked my way up. It isn't based on anything from the comics/novels just a little something he was interested in having. Let me know what you think.

    primed, sanded, and sprayed with a metallic coat.





    then the masking.




    then hit it with some Krylon Emerald Green and wiped away mask








    excuse the poor photos (flash)

    Not sure what else i plan to do to it, but it will probably involve adding another darker green then doing some intense weathering. we will see...

    probably something like this

    lookin good... thought it was a boba at first but, it's clearly not.

    Do you have any concept art?

    Sweet! If it's anything like that amazing Jango you did in the background, it'll be awesome.

    I like it buddy! The darker green would make lean toward a Boba style lid but still it's cool.

    I disagree, only if the T trim is red will that problem occur.

    Oh, I wasn't saying it like it was a bad thing. The red would totally Boba-ify it, I like the two tone green scheme though.

    Looks great man! I like the greens, they harken back to the Mandalorian Protectors and Supercommandos a bit more than other colors.

    Interesting. Like the weathering method.

    thanks for the comments everyone. He wanted something along the lines of camo originally, but i was having some difficulty with it. First he wanted a digital camo look, then we tried a Commander Gree scheme, then a Barc Trooper scheme and settled on this somewhere in between lol. He plans to eventually acquire a full set of armor so it looks like this is just the tip of the iceberg.

    Your weathering is pretty sweet, it reminds me of the ROTJ Boba style; and your metal basecoat looks really nice and reflective. Much better than most other rattlecan metals

    thanks man, yeah i was actually really impressed with the way this metallic spray paint coat came out. After it was dry there was a dusty film left on the surface which i just wiped/buffed down with a paper towel. it was ACE CHROME ALUMINUM. Had i spent more time on sanding down the primer and being neat, it would look pretty nice on a Jango i think and definitely a lot neater and faster haha!

    I think you understand the ramifications if you've accidentally found a spray paint that can substitute for rub n buff. That would make my life sooo much easier

    I FINISHED!

    finally found the other color green and weathered it up. This piece is finished. Hope my brother likes it. Now I have one more to go for my youngest brother. He is looking to do a blue custom with orange and I am picking up a bucket from GypsyBoy.

    Here are some finished shots before and after weathering.











    and now with weathering...







    moving on to the next one now haha.

    Re: Custom Mando (pics)

    I think it could do with a very watered down black and brown ink wash over it (separately black then brown, not the two mixed together!). The ink washes would add that real world look to the weathering. Aside from that I like it.

    Also, you can add some black artist's chalk dust for a nice gritty carbon scoring effect.

    Very nice helmet, looks alot like a protector. =)
