    En4cer's Custom Mando Project

    I am also starting on a year long custom mando project. I decided to go with an "LSU" custom mando, since we already have a "New Orleans Saints" custom mando in our group. I have included a few drawings of what I am trying to go for. I have already ordered the armor and I have Batninja making the vest for me. Over the next several months, I will order my helmet, belt, scats, pouches and have the helmet professionally painted.





    Here is a photo of our resident Saints Mando named Larry. See below:





    He also did a Saints clone. See Below:

    Re: En4cer's Custom Mando Project

    Here are some updated photos of my custom LSU mando I have been working on. All I need now is a purple jumpsuit and the rangefinder stalk for the helmet which is on order. By the way, I know the stripe in the back seems to be crooked, but that is because the helmet is a little warped. I don't really think people will be paying much attention to the back of the helmet anyway...lol

    Well I just received the rangefinder stalk in yesterday, and will be working on installing it in a few days along with the visor. I can't wait to get it all together and see how it turns out. The only thing I really have left to get is a purple flightsuit. By the way, how do you attach the cape to the armor? Thanks!

    The cape is attached to the top left of the collar piece using armor blocks. Best way to make those is to pop 4 keys of the same size (the F keys work best) off a computer keyboard, then flatten the tops and bottoms on a grinder. JB weld you some screws into the left blocks so you can screw them down onto the armor. Poke a couple holes in the cape then put the screws through and bold them down to your armor. The right side you can just epoxy on.

    Sounds good. Do you have any photos showing what you did to attach it. I am more of a visual person....lol

    I just finished the outside of the helmet and here is what it looks like:



    I have everything else except the jumpsuit. As soon as I get some extra money, that will be the last thing I will need to get.

    Re: En4cer's Custom Mando Project

    Alright here is pretty much the final product. The only thing I am not happy with is the color of the flight suit. I dyed it twice with two packs each of the RIT purple dye and still couldn't get it the right shade of purple. My wife is going to try and make me a darker purple set of cover-alls. Any way, here are some photos I took this evening.

    By the way, I know I am missing the cod piece. I have one, but forgot to put it on. I will have to take some more pictures in the next few days with the cod piece on..

    Your chest pieces look a tad big. You may wanna cut them down a tad on the outside. Other then that, looks great!

    I think what I need to do is bend the chest pieces more towards the inside. They are kind of sticking straight up.

    Here are some more photos with the cod piece on. I took these at my son's birthday party this evening. I still need to mold the chest armor some more. Other than that, what do you guys think?
