    Mandalorian armour is in seperate parts, are you attempting a different look for it?

    Do you have any concept pics? It might give us a better idea of what your trying to make it look like.

    It is an Imperial chest plate of some sort.

    Cool Idea.Looks good.I am using a similar concept for my iron man armor.I'm going with a standard stormie chest, and a biker scout backplate while using metal for the rest.
    Can't wait to see more of your idea.

    Re: Mandalorian Commando ( just getting started)

    I gotta be honest here (and I think we all should be because blowing smoke up someone's butt doesn't help anybody) and say that I hate it. It doesn't really make any sense to me to paint that pattern on that armor. If a Mando Commando has a solid piece of chest armor, why would he paint it like that?

    Re: Mandalorian Commando ( just getting started)

    To stay true to the mando butto have heavier armour what else can i say it's diff but the same... anyway for those who like the idea here are the weapons i going to use.. heavy rifle ( a airsoft p90 with stormtrooper rifle pc) and a side arm ( an old gotcha paint gun from when i was a kid with a solo scope)......

    Re: Mandalorian Commando ( just getting started)

    Just my opinion, but for the P90 airsoft, you should probly mod it a bit more, because even though its a raely seen gun (at least in my opinion) it still has the real-world feel, and I think it should feel more "star warsy." Good choice though. Keep it up!

    Anyone who has seen SG1 will recognize it right away.

    How about like this? And you only have to make 2 cuts.

    P-90 is a cool SMG, and there's even a semi-automatic civies version. The newer assault version is the FN F-2000, and there's even a grenade launcher on it.

    But I'd prefer the P-90. It's an interesting gun, and I think I've seen some SW concept art with the P-90 as reference. In fact, here's the "image attack" for a background prop used for ep2. I haven't seen ep2 in a long time, and it's packed away somewhere from when we were trying to move, but didn't , and we haven't unpacked everything yet.

    Is it just me or is the barrel drooping a bit in that picture?

    I SELL Airsoft so I'm right there with ya. That's why I've picked the gun that I have.

    This was a customer return for a broken motor. I ripped it apart. I don't have pics of it, but this is my 'artist rendition' of what it looks like right now.

    Re: Mandalorian Commando ( just getting started)

    Since, I play airsoft or used to on a regular basis. I've seen a lot of unusual guns and such. But if you want to take a regular gun and give it the Star-Warsy look try the FAMAS, P90, G36C, or the AUG. Any of those will get you close to the Star Wars look.

    I would argue that NONE of those guns gets you particularly close to the Star Wars guns, many of which were based on WWII-era weapons. The idea for a successful Star Wars weapon is LO-tech, not high-tech. Clunkier is better.

    Yeah, but the flaw in your plan. Any WW2 replica fire arms are either 300 to 1000+. And thats too much money. Any French, or Australian weaponry has the "Futuristic" look to it. And a lot of the WW2 weapons aren't that clunky....

    Re: Mandalorian Commando ( just getting started)

    True enough. But my argument stands that Star Wars guns are more '50s ray gun clunky and less Star Trek smooth and pretty. Lots of deep, oiled wood, long barrels and chipped paint.

    I don't think its more clunky then industrial. You have to remember, WW2 was after the depression. So stuff wasn't guaranteed to look good.
