So I have no idea how I missed this thread until now, but dadgum that is a gorgeous bucket! I agree with the dude earlier who said it's almost steam punk, I like it a lot. and the dragon, words can't tell how cool I think that is. I might just steal that idea. A'den you're skill astound me.
I want to see the armor!
Of course that being said, how many builds do you have going vod? TOR, this set, the modular b/sfg, and doing stuff for friends? where do you find the time? Do youself and all of us a favor man, SLOW DOWN and/or TAKE PLENTY OF BREAKS!!!

Hi, sorry for being a total noob but I have a quick question. I have been thinking of making myself an armor set, and the idea of making one out of steel like you are doing is pretty cool, I am wondering, what tools would I need, how hard is it, and were did you get the steel? Also, how did you make your helmet? I have been looking arround for threads but I keep getting lost in all the sub-forums and everything lol
(FYI your armor and helmet look totally awesome!)

Hey mate! No problem! We all needed a place to start!
I'm using for the armour 18ga steel. Many people use thicker with better results, but I was flat broke. The method I use to form the steel is Beviin's, which can be found here:
For the helmet, I would look in the Boba Helmet section and check out the stickies there, there's some really great info.
Tools are listed in the video and cost is around $100 for them and the metal.
Hope this helps!

There was some mention in this thread of a lightwip or swords. If your mando is somewhat melee oriented you might want to make a neck-ring or collar piece for fighting jedi, when boba fett had a beskar armor set made for him in one of the recent novel series a neck-ring was part of the set, so it is canon ^^
just an idea : )
