    Looks great! I knew exactly what it was when I saw it =D Probably one of the most distinct weapons ever made, and it's really been put together awesomely. Still loving the JP also.

    Diggin the grease gun. Where'd you pick it up if you don't mind my asking? I've often thought about using one as a backup weapon, could never really find one.

    Looking great!

    You can pick up inexpensive versions of almost any type of weapon -- at these two places....

    Since it is made out of Sintra -- it is attached on one side by plastic welder and a strip holding both the top and bottom calm shells together -- on the other side I plan on fixing Velcro to it to hold it in place. It fits nicely -- also plan on putting a strip of foam on the upper part to hold it in place on my arm -- pre-test show that it will be very snug!

    So far the Right one is done -- painted it same color as the jet pack -- since my shirt is coyote tan -- the paint came out like a mirror -- so the weathering should stick out -- it's drying right now...

    Thanks for the comments -- more to come!

    Once I bought my helmet and then my knees, cod piece, and diamond...I started there in MAY/JUNE time frame...after that -- I then bought my armor front and back -- painted the different layers for weathering....

    I then moved to the jet pack in July -- all of July -- then I finished off the gauntlets --- basically 12 hours on each one... I used 1/8 inch Sintra and a heat gun... the jet pack and gauntlets were made by hand -- from templates by WOF and LisaFett. I basically worked whole days from morning to night -- I say I have a few hundred hours in this set. From sanding, painting , using Bondo, cutting, fitting, you know -- the whole business....

    I think it came together really fast once everything was done --

    I think that's supposed to give it a desert nomadish look (looks Arabic inspired).

    I almost think it would look better with a darker flight suit. I know you haven't weathered it..but try putting some different material objects next to the armor. Maybe a dark dirty tan color?

    i think it's supposed to be like a shemaugh (don't know if thats the right spelling). Which soldiers sometimes use to keep sand and stuff out of their faces

    Corby44 - yes you are correct -- I used this particular one when I went out in public -- it was bought in Iraq at a market shop from a local.

    Black is usually worn by Shia - the area I was in - most Sunni where the red. However, I was also told if one makes the pilgrimage to Mecca - they were the red. So - the pants, shirt, shoes, and head wrap came from Iraq. Again, I wanted to stay within Lucas and his vision - but incorporate slowly those things that make this mandalorian unique...

    Hope you like it...

    Looks good. Just weather that flight suit up a tad maybe.

    I love the shemagh and modded "greasegun", oustanding work.
