    It seems like buying a Cold Cast helmet, only to spraypaint it silver.
    well. weathering the way people like me do it, is "real" as opposed to "painted on" if that makes sence. to me it looks fake. no offence to the fantastic Boba helmets ive seen out there. (Bartlett, and others.). Just to me, id rather it be rael.

    So beskar is allegedly made out of basicllly a bronzeish color right? and than the clans or whomever paints them to suit their beleifs or what have you. so thats whats up here.

    metal armor-->painted colors-->ages over time-->cool looking kit.


    thanks for the comments Bounty's Hunted. as much as i hate to give up my trooper forearms, i think these might add that last bit of flavor my kits been seekign over the last 6 years.

    Hello, Jax I must say you have done an awsome job with your mando and this pic is IMO the coolest, you just have that badass look going on like your walking away from something and Iam just waiting for the explosion in the background to happen.

    Very inspirational with your style, thank you for sharing your progress with us.

    Keep up the good work.

    that pics IS cool. maybe someone can Photoshop somethign cooler into the background. the pic was taken at an airsoft game. i was actually walking towards someone in mid game a guy took this pic. i kinda wish i was running. :|

    oh well, next time.

    I really dig the "authentic" feel. It's not very often to run across a mando custom that could probably fit right in, quality wise, on one of the movie sets. Great job. I guess my only critique would be the pouches, I guess they kinda don't fit in, in my opinion (they kinda scream army surplus, ;p).

    Will you ever plan to replace your helmet? I'm sure the Rubies vinyl loves the desert sun.

    um no.

    actually I blue taped the visor. but the one rubies i have which has been repainted in the "Shado" thread wasnt it it when i painted it. i only installed it after the fact. and the onyl way id ever replace this helmet is if i get a better version atr the same size. and i dont have issues now that i have a craft ring in it. never melted.

    for plastic, id say paint is the way to go, like a sandtrooper. dust it with some colors and wipe away the stuff you dont want or looks funny/bad/wrong.

    as for metal skills. im not that good. there are otehrs better. i just work fast, and thanks for the compliments.

    yup. i know i missed last year i was on tour...

    :|


    anyway. yeah ill be there as will the other white female custom i built.


    its an older picture and ther eis no leg armor on Shado, but it'll do.

    and as far as i'm concerned there is one maybe two other customs that i think are of severa high quality. Toms and Ray's. So get your custom butts to SDCC and prove me wrong!
