    That's the two piece Jango helmet, isn't it? Before you start painting you may want to bondo and sand the gaps along with sanding the rest of the helmet so the paint will stick. I forget what type of material that helmet is but if it's vinyl then you do not want to use any paint which has "Acetones" or "Acetates". I heard on vinyl acetones just jack it up and melt it.

    I think it's a PVC plastic helmet though, right?

    It looks messy, but thats how a mando's armor is supposed to look like, right?

    I like the color scheme for the helmet too. Can you get a sharper image?

    It looks like your Mando has been to hell and back! Looks good so far, can't wait to see what it looks like when you're wearing it.

    Re: custom Mandolorian

    With a custom mando, there really is no good or bad. It is all in the opinion of the eye of the creator. If that makes any sense. I mean, this is YOUR imagination, so we cannot really tell you how well it hold to what you were imagining. In my opinion, it looks good for a custom mando. I REALLY like the paint scheme on the helmet. That's pretty rad.

    The custom colors and design are looking good. I agree that it looks really damaged, I like it! One sugestion is to matte finish it to cut down on some of the shine, and give it added reality. Keep the progress pic coming.

    like i said earlier, follow ur t-shirt pattern! look at where the lines are sewn at. divide the parts out. as for the fabric, u can use red vinal (don't know if there even is some), or use nylon.

    EDIT: here's a thread to darth mule's tutorial. hope this helps .

    my u have a lot of questions! ah, but everyone does these days. i read somewhere that u can take a piece of leather and wrap it around your blaster. try making it a somewhat hexagon like shape.
