    Very creative helmet design! You're really putting alot of work into it it. I'm sure it'll turn out great no matter what you decide on.

    Re: Kal's Custom Mando

    why thank you Little Fett!

    @Zuka: I've been workin' on mine for a while. Actually the 81st Airborne predates my mando armor projects, so really I'm just adding my mando into the story I had for my clone that I was originally going to do.

    I WAS going to do either an ARC Lt, a Commander Cody or an Airborne Clone... decided to try my hand at making up stories for a clone unit. I'll try to find the story I wrote, since I'm using it for my comic book I'm working on. lol

    SaberMaker: Nope. It didn't receive much publicity worldwide, more of a regional thing, Wasn't exactly a chart breaker.

    Re: Kal's Custom Mando

    so I'm trying to work up the knee and shin armor for my armor... I need some help finding the right pattern and materials. So...

    1. ANYONE, can somebody please help me find the templates for the Halo3 ODST shin armor. I also need templates for the DC-15A to work on.

    2. I have plenty of cardboard to build the shins/knees and footplates but... I need to know what the resin is that I've been seeing A'd'ika and a few others talk about.

    3. Like I said, I have plenty of cardboard, so I'm going to start rebuilding my gaunts... any advice would be helpful, especially with the attaching of the hinges and with making the pred claws.

    1. H3 ODST is somewhere in here I think...
    http://halocostuming.wikia.com/wiki/Pepakura_File_Index

    DC-15a might be in here somewhere...not quite sure...

    2. Resin:
    Go to wally world and ask for fibreglass resin. should be in a green...or white and red...rectangular can...like this:

    Re: Kal's Custom Mando

    Are you talking something like this?



    Then I would say make the top half like a soccer shin pad, then put the blade housing on top and glue into place with hot glue. Then put the side fins on from front to back and the fourth fin looks attached to the top box.

    Bondo and glass, smooth it all off, add your greeblies and blade and you're away.

    To attach the hinges try rivets.

    Re: Kal's Custom Mando

    @A'den: thanks ner vod! I'll start working on my leg/cod/gaunts this week

    @Saz: yeah Saz that's kinda what I'm goin' for... I'm hoping to split the blades one to each side of the trishot on my left gaunt... I'm left handed so most of my accuracy/muscle control requiring weaposn are going on that side. Thanks for the help! I appreiciate it I'll be working on the blades shortly.

    OK Next question... is the resin in liquid form or is it a paste/goop like the bondo glass was? More importantly right now tho... what program am I supposed to use to open those .pdo files? NEVERMIND... I found the program thanks to google! lol

    Re: Kal's Custom Mando

    okay printed the templates on standard paper... I'm going to be cuttin' the templates out and stickin' 'em to some cardboard and get the pieces cut out to build up. Also, I have all the parts now to get my M4-esque rifle put together... just need to get the dremel out and get to work I guess.
