    EOD Beskar'gam

    I've been tossing around exactly what kind of beskar'gam I want to build. The Fetts are amazing, but every Mandalorian should have his own set.

    I'm taking the Boba Fett beskar'gam I purchased a few years back and moding it up. I've been searching around thedentedhelmet and Mandalorian Mercs website, and I've found a lot of great techniques. I'll probably be doing a mixture of plastic shaping, fiberglass, and metal work. The suit will also incorporate environmental controls (aka antifog/cooling) and a few more electronic gismos.

    What the beskar'gam will have added (as of now):
    Foot, shin, thigh, and upper arm armor
    Gauntlet actuated RF Servo
    Mic/speaker/ headset built into bucket
    working keyboard on left gaunlet
    HI LED lights above visor

    I've got a few more ideas to add to it, but we will see how things go. Pictures to come soon. Right now I'm starting a new bucket out of oversized WOF templates so that it can incorporate the electronics, padding, and my big head (7 5/8" hat size).

    non-Mando Inspirations:
    EOD 9 Bomb Disposal Suit by Med-Eng
    Vuzix Tac-Eye Products

    good inspirations. It's too bad I can't incorporate some sort of robotics control into the suit. I've got a basic knowledge of electronics, yet it would be interesting to have a robot controlled through the suit. Alas, I think upgrade ideas are coming to mind. First, I need to finish the armor. Then the upgrades.

    It's been so long since I've seen my Rubie's Boba Fett. I almost forgot how much of a waist of money it was. So, I'll be starting from scratch. Pictures to follow once my camera finally arrives.
