Mandalorian Pilot- **big pics!**

    Re: Mandalorian Pilot- **big pics!**

    Its coming along. The helmet is almost all done. Need to finish painting little symbols and insignia. Definitely taking from the original fett sketches by mcquarrie and johnston. Biggest hickup at the moment is just making the pattern and sewing the flak vest to fit the fett chest armor.

    Quick update pic. bad pic, parts taped to body cast. But you can see some of the LED blinky stuff. I've used armor symbols done by Joe Johnston and Mr. McQuarrie on the armor.

    I played a game called Star Wars Galaxies for 6 years. In that game I was a dashing Tie Interceptor Pilot (and one of the best on my server I might add :-) ). I am also very much into stories and the nature of WWI pilots. They were sportsmen. They felt their job was to shoot down planes not men. Great bunch of guys. And fearless considering they were flying around in machines made of wood and canvas!

    Before settling on Boba Fett I had originally decided to build a Tie pilot costume based on Baron Fel of the 181st. But seeing this.....well....once I get my Fett built I might have to adopt this for my custom job. If this look catches on you just might have the makings of a squadron of Mandalorian fighter pilots! Heck...the more I look at this the more I think I should scrap the SE Fett project and join your squadron lol If that's ok with you of course!

    I'm absolutely speechless. What honestly gets me the most is how late 70's/early 80's this look has, which a lot of custom builds don't seem to incorperate (After all, Star Wars was using parts from the 80's and before, right?). Outstanding work.

    lonewolf_1183,

    I was wondering if you intend to do a PDF file on the chest box (dimensions, etc.) and a schematic on the electronics; that you used. I think I found the, type, Mando uniform I want to do; for my custom Mando. Of course I will have to find my own way; as far as the helmet is concerned.

    Nope, Fett knee darts. When I'm doing a custom mando i always try to reuse some little detail piece from somewhere else in Star Wars costumes or props. Just more authentic to the original trilogy that way.

    Here's a few pics yanked from some people of me bringing out version 1 of this at Dragon Con this past weekend:

    something seems to be missing from the costume. i feel like there should be more doo-dads on your gloves; and the flight suit should be more light gray like in the concept art, that would really make the whole thing stand out. but that is a BAMF suit, just a couple little things and it would really set a new bar for custom mandos.

    This was so rush slapped together for dragon con. Of the 4 weeks before, 3 of them I was out of town for some of most of the week on business trips (two of them to just outside Atlanta- it was like work was torturing me! lol) I have material to do the grey flight suit, and the wires for the bossk-esque black wires to come down around the legs. It definitely will get a little overhaul when I have time and money. I was just trying to get it done in some fashion for dragon con.
